Oil Leaks, Wheres It Coming From?

This is a rubber cap on top of the transmission. Getting a lot of fluid coming out of here, wtf? The cap is soft rubber and I can pull it up. The fill port cap is on tight. Any ideas?

See the collection of oil behind the filter cap. I've replaced the o-ring twice in the last year. Maybe I need a new cap also? Looks like it could be leaking down the head too. The valve cover gasket is totally dry and not oil-saturated, not leaking for sure. PCV hose is in good shape, unsure of condition of the other PCV hole below the throttle body.

Here you can see where the block meets the head, above the oil filter cap. Looks oil saturated, not sure if it's from when the oil filter cap was leaking.

Looks normal to me. Try cleaning it and check again after a run.
