5000 miles Valve cover gasket???

Took my new 2011 f250 in for ealry oil change at 5000 miles, since DEF was low and was told it had an oil leak. It has now been at the dealer for 3 days and still waiting for part. Dealer informs me that they haven't seen anything like this on any other new trucks with 6.7. Is there anyone else out there that is or has had this happen to them? They told me that these new trucks is killng there warranty business. I hope this stays true.

Warranty has paid lot's on my 6.7. Two turbos, one engine, a nasty exhaust leak. Luckily I think it's all taken care of now.

Sound like someone put too much oil in or the cover wasn't tightened down all the way, bad gasket.... who knows.
