1586Oil Leak and Overheating

      I have what appear to be two unrelated problems. The first is an oil leak that appears under the front passenger side of the engine. After I have park my car a puddle forms under the alternator from pooling of oil in the mounting bracket. I am not losing a lot of oil, but it happens all the time. It does not happen though when the engine is running, only when the car is parked. I have heard that one of the two bolts holding the crank sensor is a common culprit; how do I remove and seal this bolt?
      The other problem is overheating. When the AC is on it is more frequent, so I jumped the aux fan switches and they worked fine. How do I check the temp switches that the jumped wires operate? Could this also be a thermostat problem? Even if I am not using the AC I will overheat if I am waiting in a long line of slow moving traffic.
