oil leak

I was wondering if you guys had any idea what could be causeing my oil leak..i brought it to the jiffy lube to get an oil change (aug 1.)and 2 days later its leakin oil..other then that i havent done anything..all stock besides exhaust n intake.

The truck runs fine and 4-28-08 i replaced the icp,crank,egt,and cam sensors that all went bad..i talked to a diesel tech at ford n he said its probably my icp, but wouldnt my truck be acting up?
Also when you look underneath the truck it looks like its coming from between the motor and tranny..and when your on top you see no oil anywhere and its not on the firewall either unless im blind?
Its been like this for about 6 weeks now..i broke my back so i havent been able to do much.
Any helps appreciated

If you can take the dust sheild off the converter and see if its oily it could be the rear main seal.

This leak might look like a rear main seal but it actually isn't i have a 04' F250 that has the same leak it actually wont hurt anything because its a small seap which is coming from a small crack in the block that i have been told they are natorious for and a ford master tech told me not to worry about cause i could change blocks and the new one will do the same thing.

Thats what i was hopin/thinkin..cause everytime i park and let it run i drop a puddle of oil about the size of cup(5 mins) to the size of a hat (30 mins)

And i keep checkin the oil level and its like always at the same level..

And about that crack in the block? Ive never heard of that..i sure wouldnt feel safe towin a trailer out of state with that..i hope thats not the case..

But thanks guys ill try and get someone to take a look eventually

If you've got an '03 motor, then I would tend to agree with him. But didn't you already replace your ICP sensor (1st post) ?

my 03 had a leak....i forget what the thing was called...injector controll sensor maybe? from under the truck it looked like it was coming from between the head and block, and driping from the back of the block. after i pulled the inner fender i could see it plain as day, it was a plastic rail thing with o-rings that just snap into the head right under the valve cover. it had just popped out, i pushed it back in and havnt had a problem out of it in 8 months.
