[s-cars] Oil Leak 94 S4

The sensor is located on the left upper side of the engine near the front.
The oil can run down the block, pool in the oil pan flange cast into the
block, and run out at the rear of the block. On my car I initially thought
the oil pan gasket was leaking because the entire flange was wet with oil
front to back.

Ive noticed some leakage which seems to be coming from the bell housing
but Im not sure.
Where is this oil pressure sensor located?
