Its hard to be completely sure without looking at the car in person but if he had to remove the crankshaft bolt and used the old one instead of a new one like is suppose to be done or the bolt wasn't installed correct (in straight or torqued) that's where I would guess the leak is.

took it in and put the car on the lift and was able to get a good look and it appears to be the oil pump, which is part of the kit when doing the timing belt, sooooo, I'll know tomorrow when I pick it up. Thanks so much for your knowledgeable input it is much appreciated.
