Fluid leakage. See pics.

Trying to figure out whatís causing all this leaking. The fluids seem oily. Please help. If you need me to take more pics or do other tests I am happy to do so. Thanks!

That leak is everywhere and there are too many things in that area that could be the culprit. In order for us to accurately help you you're going to need to clean most of that off. Once you clean it off, drive a couple miles and check back for leaks. The more often you check the better off you'll be.

Also check your transmission fluid level and power steering fluid level. If either of those are low then it's a helpful clue.

Thanks, that was going to be my next step. I checked the dipsticks for power steering and transmission, both are fine. I guess itís time to bring out the brake cleaner and wipe it all down.

Inspect your valve covers, specifically, the backside near the firewall. It is common for the valve cover gaskets and/or half moon plugs to leak over time resulting in oil leaks like you are seeing.

This. Suspect the valve cover first. If it is wet up top, repair, clean then see if there are any other leaks.

Thanks. The oil level was lower than usual when I changed it last month. I check levels regularly between oil changes. These sound like they are at top of the engine, so look at from under the hood?

You'll have to look from underneath at the firewall side of the cylinder heads.
