Need some help

Alright guys, I could really use some help here. I have a pretty significant oil leak. I replaced the turbo pedestal O-rings about a yr and a half ago and I can see that is is clean and no oil is dripping or building up there. I just got done changing the HPOP O-rings and after taking it for a test drive I am still seeing oil dripping. It isn't as much as before but still leaking. I know that the valley has a drain that goes to the back side of the motor right next the oil pan but there is still a significant amount of oil all around that area. Is there anywhere I else I should be looking aside from the rear main? Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated. I have a 2002 7.3. Thanks.

check your oil cooler, its along the engine on the driver side,where the oil filter screws into, the oil cooler o rings tend to leak on high mileage vehicles. Follow the tube to the front,it mounts to the engine. hope this helps.

I'll go take a look at that. When I was looking earlier it kinda looked like there was some building up around the starter and oil pan, could that just be from the oil coming down from the valley?

I looked at the oil cooler and it is good. most of the oil build up is on the right hand side of the motor next to the starter and oil pan.

Have you tried retorqueing your oil Pan bolts ? I know mine were loose and fixed my leak, valve covers, also I think there's a little plug on the back of the head that's prone to leaking .
