    Help Identifying Oil Leak

    I hope I posted in the right section.

    I'm new to the forum and I'm not too mechanically savvy. I own a 2008 V6 mustang and it started leaking near the corner of the oil pan. Can anyone please help me identify where it's coming from? I'm thinking it might be the oil pan gasket or the timing cover gasket. Any help would be appreciated.

    How much should I expect to pay to have a shop repair it?

    Thanks

    I wash the area off with Simple Green or equivalent and then pressure wash at car wash. The leak will usually be the highest wet point on the engine. Sometimes the valve covers can leak and drip off the pan rail. Making it look like the pan is leaking.
