Photos are looking up from the ground at a 4.0L engine in a d2. I want to identify the horizontal round piece. It is polished and extremely clean. Something must have recently come off. Engine is not holding oil. On photo is a closeup. the others are to help give context. Thanks.

Looks like the bolt hole for the eyelet on the wiring harness.
If you took those pics after the "oil loss" I can assure you its not from that area.

Put a piece of cardboard under it and see where the puddles/stains are.
