Legacy Oil on airfilter(stock). How?

I dont know how it got there but I was driving my car (96 leg l 2.2 SOHC) and took a left turn and my car started sputtering and backfired slightly. then when I straitened the wheels it went fine. then a few days later it started to when I was driving straight. I looked at my airfilter and it was covered halfway in oil. and I mean covered. took it out and it drives normally. but how did oil get on my airfilter when there is no leaks and an airbox covering it?

Check your PCV(Positive Crankcase Ventalation) valve and your hoses as well.

The valve itself you can just buy a new one for a couple bucks. Then check the hoses and I would probably buy knew ones as well since oil will be built up inside of those.
