94 Prizm oil leak

Have a 94 Prizm, 1.6 l, 112000 miles, not sure of vin code. Have a leak on passenger side of engine, seems to be on front side in vicinity of oil filter (actually guessing a little left of it as you look from the front). Haven't looked real close yet - could it be oil pump in that area? Just hoping its not internal TIA

1.6 L

I had a 86 Chevy Nova 1.6 liter engine I do think it is the same made by Toyota.Anyway the oil tube were the dip stick goes in has a O ring were it goes into the engine.Very easy fix one bolt remove tube install new O ring and reinstall.
Hope this is it because it is a easy fix.(the O ring gets old and hard and then leaks)

I'll take a look at that, although the dip stick is on the back of the block.
