Default Oil at wired places

I changed oil today. While I was working under there, I noticed for the first time that there are some oil at the places shown in the picture below. The last oil change was in May, and it was clean.

It's not dripping. I used a piece of white paper to wipe the oily area, the oil seemed to be engine oil. I think they are uncommon places to find engine oil (I may be completely wrong.)

If it is engine oil, how can it get there? It even spreads to the stability bar. If it is not engine oil, what fluid can it be?

BTW, I got some accelerator pedal vibration; some says it could be a CV joint problem. Since there is oil around the tripod joint boot, can this oil be somehow related to the vibration problem?

Can somebody please give me some help? Thanks in advance.

Gosh, oil is likely coming from above, dripping down.

Lots of people have problems with oil pressure sender/sensor leaking, it's right about that- Other wise valve cover, cam sensor, rear main-
Thats all IF it's motor oil

I would suggest to use some simple green or engine foam or the like, clean the engine completely. Then you will have a better idea now that you know you have a leak where it is coming from. The pictures are nice but is a bit untidy under the bonnet and chassis?

I first though it was dripping down from above. So I pay attention at parking lot. There is just no oil on ground. I will keep watching oil level.
