engine worries. please relieve some anxiety!

jeep has a really thick black film, almost like the consistancy of wet dirt/clay around the engine block. ran my finger through it and i thought i was in kindergarden finger painting. is this just grime from age? it seemed moist around the gasket seal which i was not happy about as well. kind of nervous. not over heating, oil has been done on regular maintence. any input would be great. much love everyone.

Does the whole block have this film? You could always give it a good wash with a degreaser and then monitor to see if you have a leak
