Oil Leak???

Hey fellas noticed a decent sized puddle under the truck... Huh??? Looked like it was coming from the TC cover, but visual inspection it looked alot like Rotella. Check the valley and i got alot of oil at the back by the FP and pedestal. Anyone have any ideas??

Not sure if i have the CCV mod, but the intake tube where stock connection was has been deleted...

cant tell without looking at it, but i bet its your hpop, there is orings that commonly fail, and leak. not a hard fix but is kind of hard to tell where exactly it comes from. i had to take my hpop off to see where it was leaking. good luck.if you dont know where the hpop is, it is in the engine valley right in front of the fuel filter housing connected to the front engine cover. to oil lines come off of it and go to each head.

I know where it is... I guess it could be that, truck has 287k and I am pretty sure its the original Hpop... Guess its time to upgrade to the T5...

Turbo pedestal o-rings, EPBV actuator rod in pedestal, HPO plug o-rings along the top of the head, HPO line connection at head and at pump. Those are a few places to start that are very common leakers on the top of the motor.
