Are you sure it's oil, or is it just kind of oily wet? Check the power steering fluid level and the coolant level. Alot of times when the water pump starts going, it does the same thing.

It could also be AC refrigerant oil leaking from the compressor...

I think they usually leak out the main bearing seal in the front. You have to replace the pump if that's the case. I've seen the high pressure line leak too, but that won't result in a spray pattern on the underside of your hood.
