Likely a bad oil pressure switch.

Gunk the engine down to get rid of all the grease and fill it with oil. Start it up and observe where the oil is coming from. Likely the switch .

If you've had your oil changed recently, check the drain plug and filter for tightness also.

Ditto on the drain plug. My mom's tempo burned up b/c the idiot at the shop who changed her oil had the plug cross-treaded. Guess who paid to have the engine replaced!
