New leak - front driver side adjacent to oil pan - dripping from a bolt. Don't know what the equipment is it's dripping from. Can you help?

From the front of the motor? I don't think so. The bolt is holding a ground cable to the block. I can't see where I want, but it's coming from somewhere above there. Possibly from front cover where it seals to the block or pan gasket in the corner. Hard to tell. More pics will help.

leak

there is a small plug there that could be leaking.or hpop gasket / O-rings leaking and going down the fuel lines and ending up on the ground bolt.
fix take off ground and clean up the area and you should find it.

Couple more shots.......

I can't see anything from above. It has however been leaking for a while from the looks of all the sludge. Are there a couple plugs right there???

Yes, plug is upper left one in that cluster of four, upper right and lower left hold front cover to block, and the lower right, as you already know, holds ground cable to block. It must not be leaking much because it doesn't look washed like a heavy leak would. I would snug the cover bolts up, reseal the plug if it's loose, and even check the pan bolts in that area while you're there. Not that it will help your leak but since you're there, now would be a good time to clean and re-attach that ground cable. I hope this helps!
