You're looking at the bottom,,,, but more often the leak is "Up Top".

There is a hole at the back of the valley where oil drains down, behind the flexplate against the back of the block, and drips out the inspection cover. What you want to do now is to use a flashlight and look under the spider into the valley for pools of oil.

Here's an interesting video, BUT I have to warn you about this guy,,,, he makes some Good Videos, that Does NOT make him infallible. He's got some really GOOFY theories (not about this though) So, don't take him as your Guru, as many do Confirm his advice on anything else he says

Also,,, what's with that swaybar link????

As stated above the oil is probably coming from the valley on top of the motor, climb up top and look down behind the fuel bowl and see if you find any oil puddling. Mine was loose clamps on the intake and that was a simple fix

If there is no oil up top leaking down, the most other prone spot is the corner of the oil pan directly above the starter.

I'm confused by this question. What rubber piece are you referring to?

I sincerely think youre leaking from up top. Have you spent any time under the hood looking for the source yet?

If you look at the picture closely, a sway bar end link popped off the rubber bushing.

It is leaking from up top. I don't know where exactly yet. Are there any main points you think it could be leaking from up top?

Turbo orings, intake piping (though doubt that much oil), HPOP fittings or HPOP itself for starters. Clean the valley really well and see where the oil is coming from, front to rear. I have had good luck laying a couple heavy duty shop paper towels down in there for a short time to tell better. A good mirror and a f'n bright light are your best friends now.
