Help Me Find Leak (pics)

already changed the oil filter housing and oil cooler. Looks like the valve cover for sure needs done as well.
also when i changed the oil filter housing. i drained the oil and did partial coolant flush. theres a very small amount of oil in the coolant reservoir . Am i ok with just a small amount of mixture? I should of flushed the whole thing but its to late at this point.

When there is a leak, shit blows everywhere. the only way to find it for sure is to clean it all off and then warm it up and look for fresh leaks. Dye works well too.

I actually just got some dye and put it in. Car is running as we speak to let it circulate. Will check back soon.

Correct me if I'm wrong but is that the rear main seal? I've heard oil pan gasket leaks can be disguised like a RMS leak.

I have the same issue

I have this same issue. I replaced the oil pan gasket 2 years ago. Now, I think its the rear main seal. I have oil slightly above the oil pan gasket.
