Common obs Leaks in engine valley

Recently bought a 97, and the valley of the motor is very greasy. I very recently had my drive way paved and don't want a leaky truck.

Well the sky is the limit here. Anything on the high pressure oil system could leak. Anything on the fuel system could leak. Anything on the turbo could leak. Gotta remember these are rubber o rings that have been in service for almost 20 years. Its gonna happen. First thing I would do personally is put new rubber lines on the fuel bowl or do e fuel if you can. That helps clear a lot of things. The turbo pedestal o rings are a good source of leaks but dont dig unless you need to. Only reason I mention the fuel bowl is its in the way to see the oil leaks so its good to pull out and clean with it out
