oil leak

waiting till monday when I have a day off to tear into her but I have a oil leak coming from the driver side looks to be coming from pretty high up on the motor and leaking down.. Just kinda glanced at it so far but does anyone have any ideas or know of problem areas around that spot ?

Check the oil dipstick tube. Have been several issues reported here about them having a pin-hole.

Yea matted I have been reading about that tonight. A lot of people out there claiming pin holes in the tube causing oil to end up on the glow plug harness and then running down all over the bottom of the truck. I'm really hoping it is something easy and CHEAP to fix like that. That's is where it looks to originate from so hopefully that's it. Thanks
