You video is not working for me. But if you are leaking from the back side of the engine. It most likely the oil sending sensor.

OK how many miles and when did the leak start? Any oil lite blinking? Two biggest leakers are the oil pressure sending unit and valve cover. Both easy to do. EBay has the best deal on gaskets. Sender in my opinion can be aftermarket.AAfter all the OEM is notorious for failing. So aftermarket should be as good.

158k runs good so I don't plan on getting rid if it soon, no oil or engine light. It started I believe 2 months ago

you can see green oil pressure switch connector at 55 seconds, and at various other moments.

Oil always rains down, and road draft blows it back
