Up on top of the motor is there oil in the valley of the motor, by the fuel filter bowl? There is the high pressure oil pump that sits under the fuel filter that likes to leak. The other option is that the plug in the back of the right head has a deteriorated o-ring and is leaking.

The first thing you're gonna have to do is verify where the leak is. I'm just giving you things that you can check to see if they are leaking. Another option is on the bottom of the turbo there is a rod that comes out of the turbo pedestal. That is know to leak out of there as well.

Hey also look at the flange where the oil dipstick goes into the oil pan that is another common oil leak. Its located on the passenger side of the oil pan.

Also check the oil filter housing and oil cooler if its driver side only. The valley will generally leak off the center of the bell housing.
