Oil leaking

I have oil leaking down the backside of my engine and I'm not sure yet exactly where. I have a 2003 6.0L. I read a service bulletin that said the crankshaft sensor could leak and make it look the rear main and oil pan are leaking. That to me is the best case senario. However, it could also be the back of the head gaskets. But if that is the case would the truck even run as good as it does? Would there be coolant in the oil? What symptoms would there be to let me know other than just some oil leaking? And if it is the head gaskets what kind of price range are we talking to fix it?

Oodles.......j/k


Could be icp sensor, yes it could run fairly good with leaking gaskets. Guys do it all the time, till complete failure. You should clean it off and monitor it.
