Oil Seepage from Engine

Hey what's up guys. I was replacing my broken catalytic converter this past weekend and noticed some oil seepage coming from the engine. Is this something I should be worried about?

Ok thanks. New to working in cars but that's reassuring.

Because of the very little amount of residual oil that's collected in those areas, I wouldn't sweat it at this point. If I may suggest, though, I'd definitely keep an eye on them and if they become significantly worse at some point in the future (which is almost's just a matter of time!), then it'd probably be a good idea to look into the leak more. But, for now, just keep on keepin' on lol

If you are talking about the rear area by the intermediate shaft, then it's either the oil pump or the valve cover up top. You should look in the rear valve cover area with a mirror first.
