Oil leak

Hey guys. I seem to have an oil leak. I have an 05 CC 6.0 with 51K miles on it. I noticed that I had an oil leak start at about 50K. It appears to be in the back somewhere between the middle of the block and the top. I was under the truck today and it almost looks like the heads might be leaking. The oil seems to be leaking down by the drivers side more and dripping off of the bell housing. Thanks in advance.

No, the only time the check engine light comes on is shortly after I install the SCT programmer. There doesn't seem to be any problems with the truck running. Of course when I set the truck back to stock it clears the code and the light goes out.

That's only on 2003 model years that have the ICP sensor on the rear cover under the turbo. Late 2004 and up, the sensor is located on the passenger side valve cover.

PROBOBLEY AN OIL COOLER OR THE LOWER O RING IN THE OL FILTER HOUSING. IF ITS FROM THE VALLY THAT IS THE MOST COMMON THING. COULD ALSO BE A TURBO DRAIN TUBE

My 06 truck had a similiar leak, dealer used dye to determine the bedplate gasket was leaking. Had to remove engine to repair, this was two months back, problem repaired.
Dealer repaired under warranty, treated us first class. located in Marion, NC
