Oil leaks

I have one more question. Most of the PSD's i have been looking at seem to leak a little oil. Meaning - from a slow drip to "just looks wet but no drips". That kind of "wet seepage" that it appears to have an oil leak but does not show spots on the driveway. The one i am currently buying looks a little greasy underneath but no spots on the ground. So - being that it is a 97 where is the usual place it will start leaking. does not look like the oil pan or the valve covers (all are dry)so i think its coming from somewhere else.

being a 97 , the most common seep is gonna be the intake boots , these engine will seep overtime , if a person washes under the hood regular you generally dont see it but very few do and just about every truck out there even the 6.0 will seep oil, in my opinion a desiel doesnt have a leak till unless its dripping , its a diesel not a caddy, dont be worried about it
