oil leak

I got an 06 about 2 weeks ago and noticed an oil leak at the front of the motor. It's getting on the belt and everything. I've put a piece of cardboard under it and nothing I also had die put in and still can't find the source. Any help will be greatly appreciated

You shure it is oil. Could be fuel or even power steering fluid being sprayed on the belt.

Vany luck with your leaks? I too have an oil rake from front of engine on 2003 6.0. I have torn apart upper oil filter housing as well as Hpop cover and will be installing nes gaskets and reassembling. if leak is still there then I will replace large front gasket between engine and water pump - oil pump housing. Sure hope.

I got the same thing, started about 7K miles ago. Seems to drip off the oil pump pressure regulator, but starts further above it. Thought it was power steering fluid, turned out not. Slowed down a good bit once I did my CCV mod so I'd say it's from the crankcase, maybe front main.
