oil leak??

This probably doesnt have anything to do with tuning or anything, but I have an oil leak on the drivers side of the motor. I took my stock exhaust off, put S&B cold air intake on, rerouted CCV, and put a livewire street tune on. The oil is coming from above the exhaust manifold or somewhere. I routed the crankcase with 1 inch hose. Not coming out of there. I dont know what it could be. Any ideas?

Truck is over full with oil but if that were the problem would it not vent that excess oil out of the crankcase vent? The leak is above the egr cooler on the drivers side. Looks like there could be a sensor or something underneath that air conditioning thing or whatever that is with that extra little coolant reservoir

Any ideas? no oil in valley. Just oil under that cooler or whatever that is by the degas bottle. It is right above the egr cooler and right side exhaust manifold. What is at that point?

The oil dipstick tubes like to crack at the bracket and cause a leak. Follow it down and you'll see where it bolts to the crossover tube bracket. I've also seen them wear through on the horizontal cooler but that's not as common.

It also could be a glow plug harness but that's even less common.

Took the inner fender well out and it is either the dipstick or glowplug harness/boot. Not sure. Brake cleaned it all off and need to take it for a ride. Not going to be able to take it for a ride for awhile though. If my oil level is too full, where would it push that oil out from? The crankcase vent right?

Sounds like the same problem I had with my truck. My turbo seals were bad.
