Unable to find fluid leak location

Hello to all. I have been having a fluid leak issue for months now. Its a slow leak however it manage to drench the bottom engine cover with oil/tranny fluid, unsure which type. Its not the timing cover as its coming from the starter area from what I see but it covers everything below with oil. I have read the issue with tranny/engine seal leaking but not sure if this is it or not.

I attached some pics for you all to see and help with ideas.

Use spray starch along all the possible leak areas and check again after a few days. Clean the area first with degreaser.
If its a slow leak the dry spray will turn wet where the leak is coming from.
