Greetings, my 2009 TSX has an engine oil leak that I do not know the exact location of. I am not well versed in engine bay anatomy and so I have some pictures that I have been studying to search for the problem.

I know the leak is somewhere above the oil pan, so the oil pan appears to be fine. I was hoping this was a simple fix. Maybe an o-ring or a missing screw somewhere underneath..

Leaks become harder to pinpoint when the leak starts to cover more area. Clean the area and then see where the leak starts to form. I know it sounds simple but it's the easiest way to tell where it starts.

^^ especially down low and on the backside of the engine. Small oil seepage can get carried around from the air passing under your car as you drive. Clean it with a degreaser or brake clean (cold engine!!) and check periodically to find the point(s) of origin.
