Check the valley of the motor and see if there is any oil up there first. If there is its possible thats where the oil is coming from.

Is it puddled up pretty good? If it is more than likely its leaking from the hpop or high pressure oil pump near the front right by your fuel filter, or from underneath the turbo from the turbo pedestal orings.

Its a bit of a pain as you need to lay up in the engine compartment to remove the turbo. Here is a writeup for you to look at OBS turbo removal/installation tips

Hello,

I have an oil leak, there is no oil in the valley!

I was told it was the rear main, but after looking at the info here I think it might be something else.

What could it be if there isn't any oil in the valley????

Please help
