1997 3.5 LHS leaking oil front cover help needed, please



My daughter was driving the LHS and said it is leaking oil bad. The screwdriver points to the joint in the front cover where it is leaking. I also noticed the vacuum lines on egr disconnected, but don't know if it is related. You can put 3 quarts in, not start it and the oil will be on the floor by morning. We just bought the car.


This shows the inside and the rubber seal where it is leaking from, just below the bolt head. But I can't tell where it's coming from.


This shows the drivers side, the water pump has been changed recently as well as timing belt, tensioner and idler pulley. I saw a small amount of coolant so the pump may need to be tightened or resealed. But where is the oil leaking? May have to add more and wait and see where it comes out? Any help or advice is much appreciated.

Update,
It was the passenger side camshaft seal that is leaking. Going to do both sides while I am in there. I have worked on a lot of vehicles but there is very little on the Internet about this motor. It was used in a few cars but changes were made in each one. It would be nice to have something to go by but I came up empty. I am going to take some pics as I go so maybe it can help someone else down the road.
