Help Me Identify Oil Leak

Hey Guys I've got an 08' 6.4L w/ 70K miles on it... Was crawling around under it the other day and found this Leak... It appears to be coming from the Rubber plug on the trans but theres also evidence of drips on the back of the oil pan.

Look toward the front of the engine. Seen a lot of front crank seal leaks. Ford has updated it. Have also seen leaks from cam and crank sensor seals. Also check the glow plug harnesses. Can be seen through the fender skirts.

Mines been seeping from there for quite some time. I asked around a while ago and never got an answer. That plug pull out and it was wet in there but not bad. All my fluid levels have been fine and its a lot less then yours so I'm not too worried but I'd like to know. Hopefully someone knows

Had the same leak on my truck. Dealer replaced cam seal first but. A month later it was still leaking. Wound up being a rear main seal. 20k miles later and no leaks.
