Common leaks on the 6.0? (oil)

So after lavishing over the truck for a few days I just noticed after owning it for a few days that there was a wet mark under the engine. Figured maybe it was something other than oil, at least I hoped. Came home from work today and took it for a 10 mile trip and theres now another puddle about the size of a softball. It looks like its coming from up high, laying under the truck passenger side up high on motor any ideas? The motor was all clean from the dealer steam cleaning and dumping bottles of armor all all over it so now I will start to see any leaks. Where might this leak be coming from ? This I will have to get fixed, not what I call a small leak, disappointing sh*t....,

TAKE IT BACK to them and tell them to fix it!!!

Not acceptable... I hate when people clean the engine to hide problems so a couple days down the road they appear again.

Agreed! theres no warranty however and I DID have an independant diesel shop do an inspection. The dealer is good though and should cover the cost of the fix, if they do not, i rolled the dice and lost............

You think its the part leaking under the middle where the HPOP is??

The first pic is the oil cooler, many oil rings are associated with the oil cooler so it is possible that one of them has started a leak. Further towards the rear of the truck is the HPOP cover. Does it seem to be an oil leak or a coolant leak?
