Which engine , so we can answer your question properly? Unless the car is in very good to excellent condition otherwise , replacing the pump and other seals on front of engine along with water pump and belts may not be worth it. Depends on how much you like the car. Is the engine still under 200K miles?

It is located behind the timing belt. In order to replace it (maybe your problem is just a leaking seal - there's 2 of them for the oil pan), you'll need to remove the timing belt, and perhaps even the tensioner and/or idler to get better access. If you're leaking oil from that area, it can also be the camshaft and/or crankshaft seals. How many miles on the car and when was the timing belt last replaced? Is it a V6 or I4?
