oil leak after sepentine belt replaced 6.4

Hey guys first time posting,

I had my serp belt break while driving today I replaced it without a problem and didn't notice any oil at the time but now I am leaking motor oil badly and I cant seem to find where. I am assuming the belt hit something when it broke. There is also a vibration or buzzing in the brake pedal. Any ideas where my leak could be coming from?

Thanks much,

It's power steering oil, likely.

Usually the when the belt goes for a dump it winds itself around the pulley/pump shaft and tears up the front seal on the pump.

This is likely where your buzzing is coming from in the brake pedal, due to lack of power steering oil.

Hope this helps. And the pump isn't a treat to change, sorry.
