6.0 leaking a little bit of oil and coolant?

I just noticed a small oil leak under the back of the engine. It doesn't look like an engine seal but more like coming from the top of the motor. And it's not very much oil it's barely showing on the dipstick that it even leaks. I also noticed I lose some coolant and it seems damp around the overflow cap. I replaced it with an aftermarket overflow cap from O'Reily's but haven't driven it much since that. Could there be something major wrong?

I haven't had any purging or anything from the degas bottle. I was told it may be some sort of sensor making the oil leak.

ICP sensor is what I was told. Have not yet had it replaced.

its a diesel, get use to small oil leaks. you'll drive yourself crazy trying to find small leaks. As far as the coolant be sure the cap is good. The full mark when cold should be the min mark. The new min mark is 1/2 inch below that.

It hasn't affected performance or made any difference on the dipstick.

It won't cause it's a small oil leak, I'd still replace the icp sensor just to make sure.. If its not that then try not to worry about it
