From the oil pan area :confused: :dunno: I see oil by the middle bolt closest to the tranny. My guess is the gasket is bad but im not car smart at all.

It could be leaking from the Main seal in the front, the oil filter housing, an allen plug in the heads, the cam cover gasket, the oil pan, trans front seal, rear main cover.

I could continue, but im trying to convey your problem cant be solved over the internet.

best bet is to clean all the oil off with cans of brake clean very well, add in some dye and drive the car, check every couple days, but you will need a special light bulb to show the dye.

oil pan

could also be your rear main seal.to replace the gasket you either drop the k-member down or lift the engine high enough to slide pan out.major pita.clean all the oil off with the degreaser.use dye just like the other guy recommended.the rear seal you have to drop the trans,

What Tino said, but a leak at the rear of the pil pan is not uncommon on these motors for some reason. Chances are that is where is it leaking from.
The easiest way is to drop the k-member as low as it needs to go without taking it completely off the car, and then drop the pan off the motor.
