Oil Leak

I have a small oil leak that looks to be coming from under the Flywheel cover. What bad news is that? By the way it is an '03 7.3.

it is possible to have hih pressure pump o-rings leaking , not very expensive , it is also possible for the intercooler and intake boots to just be seeping ,which is fairly normal and can be cleaned off from time to time , most 7.3 oil leaks are from the top end , will not be rear main seal or anything like that

But will you possibly notice the leak around that cover. It looks as if it is coming out of what looks like a weep hole. I will look further up to see if I see anything.

I went back and looked around up top and notice a puddle of oil under the fuel bowl in the valley. Could this be where the oil down below is coming from?

I guess I will carry it to the shop tomorrow. Is this a high ticket bill or reasonable?
