Default 08 Vue 3.6L massive oil leak

I appreciate any and all help before I start this project! The 3.6L vue has developed a pretty healthy oil leak that looks as though it's on the transmission side of the engine, somewhere in the top half. I have oil pooling in one of the recesses on top of the transmission bell housing, and as well on top of the block between the cylinder heads.

My guess is that it's a valve cover gasket leaking, running on top of the block, and on turns, runs out and collects on the bell housing. But that is just wild speculation. I dont think this is the rear main seal, nor head gaskets as it has no other symptoms besides the oil leak.

I included a picture, the circle is the oil pool on the bell housing and the arrow points to area of the block between the cylinder heads and below the intake manifold.
