Sounds like its in the valley, you said it only happened when on a hill. Valley drains out the back of the engine on top of the transmission.

Look under the hood in the valley, see if theres any streams of oil and if there is try to locate its source.

It could be residual fuel from filter changes in the valley running down the back of your motor and taking the old engine grime with it mimicking an oil leak. If it is a definite oil leak, you should eventually see it no matter what grade you park on.

yes there is definatly oil in the valley, but withought taking the cover off i can't tell exactly where it is comming from. could it be as simple as a loose line, or do i have bigger problems?

Take the engine cover off, its not hard, and find where its coming from. Take a rag or something and mop all the oil up then start it and check again. Also check the back of the heads at the main oil galley plugs. They are the two big silver colored plugs in the back of the heads. They can leak too.
