Oil leak help

So last night I was underneath my truck making sure the power wire to my backup lights didn't come loose, and I found a little oil leak. I havn't seen any on the ground so I don't think its real bad but I still don't like leaks. Any ideas on where its coming from? This is on the drivers side exhaust manifold.

This could be from your IPR valve or the HPOP cover. If it is not running down from above the exhaust manifold I would suspect a over fueling injector. Does your truck smoke?

It looks to me like it is coming from somewhere up above the manifold. And no it doesn't smoke. Where is the IPR valve located?

IPR valve is in the HPOP back below/under the turbo. That and check the valve cover/ccv hose that goes into the intake tube.
