Hello. I think you are talking about the belly pan under the intake leaking oil. This cover is used to cover the camshaft and lifters of the engine. You may have an oil leak from this cover or from the engine cylinder heads. You may want to put in an oil dye and clean off the motor. After running the motor or driving it a few days, then use a black light to identify exactly where oil leak is coming from. If you would like an expert to take a look at the car, a certified technician from YourMechanic can come to your car's location to inspect the oil leak and let you know what should be done.
