Front main leaking?

I have a leak right in front of the oil pan and behind the crankshaft pulley, where an aluminum peice meets the iron block. It appears to be oil, but has a deep green color also. Anyone else? it has covered the crossmember, only noticed a small spot on the floor.
Any tech's out there with info? thanks.

Ford did the Crankshaft seal Fix, and put in the Venture T, and replaced the radiator. So I have no complaints- other than betting back under it again

i think i might have the same problem as your guys, if i let my truck sit for more then a day in my driveway i get a very small spot of what i think to be oil in the drive way, i took a pic under the motor, if you're looking at the truck this would be the front right of the motor, any ideas if this is what you guys are talking about?

Not sure if the 6.4 is the same as the 6.0, but I had a gasket leak on the fuel filter housing on top of the motor that was leaking down the engine when the truck was running. The side cover on the filter housing was leaking fuel when running.

Crank seal is likely if you are seeing it come from behind the balancer. I have also replaced a couple oil pump cover gaskets (the piece of the cover that the crank seal rides in).

^^^^^No, the front cooling system can be removed very quickly and easily.
