Oil Leak Behind Timing Belt Cover Sign In

4 Cylinder
206,000 Mil

I got a car but It had an oil leak. Today I took off the wheel so I could see it more and theres alot of oil leaking from behind the timing belt cover where it meets the metal. Its not leaking out of the timing belt cover but behind it. Ill put a link up for a picture of the leak. It has had the timing belt replaced on it. Please if anyone could explain to me what this is it could help me alot. And what is the metal piece behind the timing belt cover ??

Possible leak areas for that.

Crank seal
Oil pump drive seal
Cam seal
Oil pump cover gasket
Oil pump to engine block gasket

You'll have to remove the timing cover and then reinstall the crank pulley so you can run the engine to see exactly where the leak is coming from.
