Hi schmalen, Welcome to 2carpros and TY for the donation

You'll be needing the intake manifold gasket, exhaust manifold gasket exhaust pipe donut and valve cover gasket-I can't make out the picture-it looks like a heat shield

You sure its not coming from the oil pan gasket, oil pressure switch or the valve cover-you need to determine exactly where its leaking, oil leak moves around and can miss lead you

Hi, oil pan gasket no, because the oil comes from top.

Maybe oil pressure switch or the valve cover, because around that switch and to the right is a lot of oil.

I think I have at first to clean up the motor, and then I watch where the oil comes from.

Kindley regards

p.S. What is exhaust pipe donut
