I would reseal the following just because i know they are will be leaking at that mileage.

1-intake manifold gaskets
2-timing cover seals
3-oil pan
4-possibly valve cover gaskets.

Timing cover seals [opti/water pump], oil cooler hoses, adapter at the oil filter housing, valve covers, rear main ~ although not common

Ive just bought my 96 dcm a few months back and it has the same prob. When I changed the oil I noticed that the oil level sensor was leaking so I ordered a new one from rockauto. havnt put it on yet though waiting for it to be delivered. I thought my drain plug for the oil pan was leaking but the oil was just dripping off it from the oil level sensor.

I'm betting it is the oil cooler lines.
