Could definitely be the valve cover gaskets, particularly if the crankcase is overfilled. My 93 205 used to pool it in the intake valley between the runners due to a leaky valve cover. Would also check rear main seal area between the motor and trans.
This is one place I noticed oil pooling which lead me to think valve covers.

I looked at alot of pictures on the web and its seems most Ford engine have a breathable oil fill cap. I will replace the nonbreathable cap with a breathable cap also.

Thanks all for the quick suggestions!
