Need help identifying an oil leak
 
Basically right after I fixed my OFHG and CCV I noticed another leak magically appear.

Here are a few photos. I have no idea where its coming from?

Can it be the oil pan gasket? Even though the leak started slightly above the gasket area?

OR can it be coming from somewhere else?

pics too big brah, can't even tell what I am looking at there. Check the front corner of the oil pan where there is that extended metal tab on the low side. Jack up car and have someone rev it up and down while you are under there and check to see if you can visibly see any oil bubbling out. That is how I found the cause of my wife's leaking oil pan gasket. She was blowing out about a quart every 3-4 days at that point.

I don't think this would help me because its using a quart maybe every 2-3K miles.

Looks like its the oil pan gasket pushing oil through and upwards (seems unlikely) but its strange theres no staining above where the stain begins. there's nothing around that area that could leak like that except the oil pan gasket. you absolutely sure its not old oil stains? try soaking that area in degreaser for half an hour then blast it with water and touch it up. then recheck for leaks.
