your fuel lines run up in front of the exhaust manifold on a 6.0, to the upper fuel filter housing......then if anything up top was leaking on it...it would roll back down the valley of the motor and end up coming down the back of the motor in the exaust/bellhousing area....

first thing i would check would be the cap on the fuel filter up top....sometimes those o rings leak, especially if they dont get changed out when the fuel filter is done...
