Unhappy Back in the shop

Well the trucks back in the shop, its leaking oil again. Last month it was in there for the same thing and they replaced the oil pan gasket and the CPS o-ring, a couple months before that it got a new rear cover gasket. Now there telling me the rear HUD or somthing of that nature is leaking, which requires removing the engine... I thought they pulled the cab my question is what is the hud, service guy told me its where the bottom and the top of the engin meet

I've never heard of HUD? It sounds like you are talking about the engine bedplate, which is the seal between the upper portion of the 6.0 block, and the bottom girdle, which incorporates the crankshaft mains. Maybe your dealer calls it the HUD ? Where does your oil leak look to be originating from?

Were are you leaking from? Have your oil changed recently? Seems silly but the number one thing my shop teach strested to us for oil changes was if you leak oil check to make sure that the old filter gasket comes out. Somtimes it won't come out with the filter and it can get overlooked.

If its in the shop again have them patch it up. If you can identify the leak on your own and its from the pan you might try some silicone sealer...
