Oil leak on top of engine.

I'm new to diesel's and I just bought a 2005 F350 6.0. The truck is stock but hopefully not for long. I have noticed an oil leak and I have traced it to the top of the engine, near the oil filter. It's not leaking from the filter but in that general area. There is oil all in that area and underneath the turbo. I have no idea what anything is but if I get some help I could probably fix the problem. Any help would be appreciated!!

So it's in the valley? How much oil? It's normal for un maintained CCv boots to leak and cause the valley to cake up with oil and look terrible. If its an obvious oil leak it could be the hpop cover, oil cooler cover gaskets. Turbo drain tube seal? It's hard to help without a pic or more insight on exactly where it's coming from

I'm getting a small leak on the driveway. It's running down on the starter and I think I've traced it to the valley. It looks dirty and oily in the valley but I'm not sure if the leak is coming from there. It's not a lot of oil maybe a quart every couple of weeks. I'm new to diesels so I'm not real familiar with the terminology.

A quart every couple weeks is something to be concerned about. Maybe someone else can chime in that knows more than I do. Can you tell if the hpop cover is leaking?
