Came home and noticed a puddle under where the truck was parked previous and looked under the truck to find oil dripping from all over. Opened the hood and saw oil was sprayed everywhere. Checked my cap and it was on tight... here's the thing, I have been noticing a squeaking/hissing coming from the engine, would stop slightly when engine warmed good but couldn't exactly figure out where it was coming from and been trying to pinpoint it over the last few weeks. Anyone know what could be happening? I thought maybe it was a PCV or hose to it but from what I'm reading the Colorado doesn't have one. Thanks.
Did your oil filter come loose, have a hole or crack, or leaking gasket?

When you say everywhere under the hood, do you mean everywhere? If so, whatever is is must be near the front because the fan is blowing it all over. If it's in a straight line along the underside of the hood, side by side, then the oil is being slung by a pulley or the belt. If there is a puddle, it should be relatively easy to track down. Don't be deceived though, it may be leaking from someplace high and finding a path to where it's more visible.
