Question about Cars & Trucks
Hopefully what you have shown is behind the water pump and the leak is water and not oil. If it is water you need to replace the water pump and its seal, if not, the engine will require much more detailed tear down. Get yourself a Haynes repair manual for your 2000 Camaro V6 at your local auto parts store and check out the engine parts locations.

SOURCE: leaking rear main seal.
Replacement is pretty difficult, but if you go to advance auto parts, (cheap trick) you can buy "rear main seal repair" it works. I used it on my dodge dakota, and the leak only persisted for about a week, and was fine after that. Worth a shot, a new seal is very hard to install. You have to basically pull the entire motor up and out to reach it for one, then, setting the seal is just a pain.

the pulley needs to be removed to remove the PS pump, this pulley is pressed onto a tapered shaft (they used a bolt around 35 years ago), it requires a special power steering pulley remover/installer tool, u can borrow this tool from Kragen and other parts stores like them, as how it works, it can be a little hard to set it up if u have never used this tool before.
