Oil leak..oil pressure system or rear main?

So the truck I bought two days ago is now leaking oil..or was and I never noticed before. At first I freaked out because I thought it was a rear main, but I saw a thread that said something about the high pressure oil system. It does have quite a bit of oil back on the bottom of the turbo and in the intake valley..do you think it's just running down the back of the engine making it look like a rear main leak?

I'd bet your Rear Main is fine (a common misdiagnosis)....

Here's an interesting video, BUT I have to warn you about this guy,,,, he makes Great Videos, that Does NOT make him infallible though. He's got some really GOOFY theories (not about this though) So, don't take him as your Guru, as many do Confirm his advice on anything else he says

Thanks I'll have to take a look when I get a minute. I work at the dealership I bought it from, so they are going to run it through service for me Monday and let me know also.

Thanks for posting that video my truck has been leaking terribly for a week now and I had no idea what it was until I saw that video and it turned out to be my hpop. I'm relieved it's not the rear main.

Yeah thanks. Just ran mine through the shop, O-Ring on the HPOP. Whoever had it before me decided to try and fix it with teflon tape :/
