Oil leak right front near sensor
 
I replaced a leaking oil cover gasket and it all seemed good for awhile. Now I see a leak near the front right (left if you are facing engine front) near a sensor and right near the replaced gasket and timing cover.
I don't think the sensor itself is leaking but it almost seems like it is the timing cover. Does anyone have an idea on what is leaking?

No ideas?

It is not that uncommon for that cam position sensor to leak. Take the connector off and if it isn't obvious clean everything up with brake cleaner and check again.
