Oil leak, front and driver side

So I noticed like a week ago, that my upper boost pipe had some oil on the bottom of it, I thought it wasn't a big deal. I could have sworn its just been dirty since Ive owned it.

Well just now I notice my front drive shaft has oil all over it.

I look under the truck and there oil on the driver side head near the back, and sort of crowded around where the header on the last cylinder closest to firewall.


Note: This truck previously had the injectors replaced, injector seals, head gasket and ignition system by Ford due to the previous owner *****ing about things like "it runs rough in the morning, and doesn't have any power when its cold".... dumbass, its a diesel.


Am I screwed a head gasket? If so, who does it the cheapest? I might as well stud it at the same time.

Is this a 2003 model year? If it is, has it ever had the ICP sensor and connector replaced?

I noticed tonight that it might be the valve cover gasket. Its definately at the back, head does not look to be leaking. Oil level is perfect, oil does not smell like diesel.

Valve cover gaskets are reusable on these engines. By your description, I'd put my money on the ICP sensor leaking oil. Better get this fixed soon before you start to have driveability/starting issues. Don't forget to replace the sensor too.
