Hello, I have a 2006 Mazdaspeed 6 and I’m getting a pretty substantial oil leak now.

I have no clue where this is coming from, any help would be greatly appreciated.

Yes I’m aware. Given the area the oil is at, I was wondering if someone has had the same issue in the past. Thank you for your response.
When you drive the air swirls oil all over the place.
Clean it up really well and using a very good light see where it starts to weep from. That's all anyone can do.
Good luck.

Assuming as you note that it doesn't smell like gear oil, I would start with a new valve cover gasket. They are inexpensive and very easy to replace.
