Mysterious oil spray help!

I have a oil leak on my passenger side, and it sprays the whole right side of my truck. It's not glow plug Harness because I just replaced that. What could make it have enough pressure to spray that far?

A cracked piston can cause that much pressure

Could be a drip somewhere up front that catches the wind or the air from the fan and blows it around. Have you looked in there with a flashlight to try to locate the source of the leak? Might want to wait 'till she's cold and clean up the engine compartment. Then, after it's dry, fire it up and start leak checking.

Blow bye is all good, and nothing's coming outta the dipstick. Do these motors have an oil drain tube? I'm starting to think that one of my fuel lines is leaking and overflowing my oil. I'm pretty sure I have a fuel leak because I filled my rig up and it was all gone in two days, I maybe drove 100 miles..

Uh??? Yeah dude, unless you're getting 3 mpg, that would be a SERIOUS problem. Have you thought about checking your oil level?

If I were you, I would take it in and have it checked out. Obviously something is wrong.

Also, what do you mean by "oil drain tube"? There are roughly three places a person should access the oil:
1. Oil fill tube.
2. Dipstick
3. Oil drain plug.

It's leaking faster than the fuel is poring in. I'm going to replace those lines, try to find the leak, and then change the oil
