In English most of these guys and gals would think it's the oil cooler located underneath the exhaust manifold . The cold weather and the age of the seals tend to do this .

Could be coming from gasket on oil filter. Mine ripped on me didn't realize it till the temp dropped down to the low 20's. It only did it for a short period of time then it stopped as soon as warm oil got into the filter weirdest darn thing. Had no oil coming from above were oil on front dif. was and no real amount of oil on filter drove me nuts looking for it.

Hey redneck2221 did you find it?

Hey Chop there is an oil cooler under the Exahust manifold on the drivers side?

Hey Folks Those of yoyu that Watch... Sorry Redneck2221 I'm going to Hijack your thread because My Issue deals with the same Problem. When it's below 20 My truck pisses oil untill it warms up. I have narrowed it down to one of these two lines.. anyone know what they are and can these conections be replaced? See pic

Click on pic to see larger version





well got those lines wiped off and started the truck and nope not from the conections but above that up on the frame??? Crap

Yep the drivers side it is ,use oem seals and gaskets .Your pics are of the fuel lines ,one for return and the other to pump .Those are wet from I suppose the oil cooler .Cooler is coupled with the oil filter head .

My best guess would be one of the O ring seals on the HPOP if it's coming from the top. Otherwise look at the oil cooler, just as Chop mentioned.

Otherwise it could be one of the high pressure lines or fittings. However those usually don't just stop leaking once they warm up.

The lines in the pic are just fuel lines; the only oil lines in the engine are the two coming from the HPOP.

Its your oil cooler and most likely o rings. I just did mine and luckily the front housing gasket wasnt leaking so i got away with new o rings and rear oil filter housing gasket.

USE DEALER ONLY O-RINGS!!! Dont ask me how I know.
