2008 Ford 6.4 dripping little spots of oil in driveway.

And it only has 24,000 miles on it. Any common place where these things drip oil from, would like to know.

I had mine seep, not drip at about the same mileage. They put dye in it, and ended up replacing the rear crank seal, and no more problems.

To the Dodge guy....get an 08+ and be prepared to have your truck at the shop more than you drive it...being fixed on taxpayer money because Chrysler can't make it through a little recession.

i was lost too, no, i had the leak pretty early, and by common i mean, of the few trucks that have had a leak, its mostly been the same spot.

Common meaning all people experiencing a problem had similar problems, as opposed to common meaning all the trucks have an issue.

I had the same little drip problem and it turned out to be the drain plug -twice. I guess that they didn't torque it properly. No issues now.
