    That is the clutch slave cylinder. Yes it can be replaced. Would need to
    be replaced then bleed the clutch system.

    More than likely it is a bad valve cover seal, the oil filter cooler
    adapter gaskets, the rear intake gasket or the oil pressure sender unit.

    If it is coming outside the starter then it is probably the valve cover
    gasket.

    Turns out it was a radiator fitting and some bad hoses. I guess it looked
    like oil from running through some dirt.
