Hey guys, so I did some closer looking today, and there is oil is covering the front of the block and is in a lot of other places on the block. I think I have both the oil filter housing leak as well as the valve cover leaking. I'm going to have a fun weekend fixing this... Anyway, check out the below pictures, you guys think I'm correct in thinking the valve cover and oil filter housing are leaking?

I appreciate the input.

edit: some of those are a lot closer up than I remembered.

First picture is obvious - oil filter housing
Second picture shows massive amounts of oil on the front of the block - this sucks, sorry
Third picture shows oil covering the front of the block near the belt
Fourth fifth shows suspected valve cover leak on the passenger side of the engine
