Check your trans output seal. Mine leaked it and flings it everywhere. Also looks like you lost a bolt on your charge pipe.
yea charge pipe i onl have one on there...trans output seal?..where is that?..and that would leak engine oil and no trans fluid?

DOes look like it's from the back of the engine and somewhere in and around the area of the turbo lines. The oil pan is moist over a large area.

Its on both sides of the transmission where the axles come out. Fluid color will vary depending on what you have inside it. Now if its something like royal purple its nice and easy to identify. My suggestion is simple green the crap out of everything, get it nice and clean, then see at least the area its coming from, right now it looks like everywhere.

cam seals on the passenger side - leaking down behind the timing belt cover

maybe oil return line leaking at the turbo or where it goes back into the block.
yea i checked all the turbo oil lines and ajusted and tightened the clamps..idleld the car and no leaks from those lines..the only things i can think of is the cranks seal again and or the cam seals..now i would need to remove all of the motor mounts and timing belt cover to see if these r leaking correct?

You could take the top timing belt cover off and see if the timing belt is wet. My car has a bad front crank seal leak and the timing belt gets oil on it and carries it up and slings it on to my hood, since the cover is still off. FYI the cover is only 3 small screws, no jacks needed.

ok i can get to these small bolts without removing anything?

3x 8mm screws. Just gotta wriggle it up and out. May have to move washer line and possibly coolant line

I am having the same problem. My car leaves a tiny puddle when up to temperature but when it cools down it doesn't leak. It also stinks and smokes out of the hood, i opened and looked at it and it seams to be coming from behind the engine somewhere, maybe the oil lines to the turbo. This is my first turbo car and I have no idea what to do. Which oil line goes into the top side of the turbo and how do I stop it from leaking? Also how do you get to the other line?
