Ok well my throttle body is dripping oil where is it coming from?

Ok I found out that it could be blow back from the fresh air line connecting to the valve covers any suggestions on how to fix it, or if it's not that then what could it be?

Post some pics. If its your PCV valve, then you have a lot of oil blow by. You could install an oil catch can, they're cheap and a 5 minute install. But you may have other problems. Have you put in a different oil or oil weight? After you wipe it off, how long before you get oil drips again?
