Default I need to identify it an oil leak

Hey guys I kind of new at this but I have a lexus ls400 1992 with about 210K miles on it. I have been having a leak and I know where it's it's coming from I just need to know what has to be done to stop this leak. I have pictures of it because I don't know what the part is called... Excuse my ignorance. It's right above the oil pan

Welcome to Club Lexus.

We'll need a bit more info, the oil pan is a pretty big size and leaks above it can be numerous. Cam seals front-rear, RMS if it is between the tranny and block, valve cover gaskets many possibilities for it to run down. May be the pan gasket too. Knowing where in relation to the front of the car and which side will help in making suggestions.

most common is the crank front main seal at that mileage as well as the cam seals. all three should be replaced on during your timing belt change which should have been done at 180k.
