New to me oil leak :)

Hi everyone
Just a quick teaser pic of a leak from somewhere in my engine bay lol
took the pic last night in the cold ohio weather so probably not the best and didn't have the time I wanted to poke around.
Picked up a 2005 Excursion EB a couple weeks ago.
My first ford vehicle other than my old SVO so my first powerstroke also lol.
So not sure I know exactly what I'm looking at when I'm looking at it lol.
It shows up on the front of the engine area and also the rear.
But anyway here are a couple pics.
Tell me what you need from me to help me diagnose this and ease my wife's worries lol.
Right now need to go clean out my wife's outlook so her sister can take her driving test.

Look at your right hand valve cover toward the front. Does it have a sensor going into the valve cover (looks like a temperature or pressure sending unit)?

What you are looking for is the ICP sensor. If it is not on the valve cover it is attached to the HPOP under the turbo. Those are known to leak in the location of your first picture.

Second leak look like power steering pump or more likely hose fittings.
