Slightly rough idle after driving with oil leak

Hey guys! I'm starting to run out of money on maintaining my 6.0 and now I have another problem. Once my truck hits operating temperature and is driven for about 20 minutes the idle starts to get a little rough. It's not really bad yet, but I can see it getting worse. To combat this I thought the oil was overfilled, so I changed it. However, when I was under the truck I noticed a lot of oil residue by the oil pan, transmission, and by the starter. I'm thinking I have a slight leak that is causing this problem?? Any suggestions?? You guys have helped me in the past. I wish I was as knowledgeable as you folks.

Take a look at the ICP. Its up on the pass valve cover, if there is oil leaking at the sensor its shot for sure. Not sure what your seeing leak but it may have nothing to do with the rough engine
