thanks much.. ill give it a look. like your thread said, i was thinking rear main. im relieved. my 99 truck only has 50k on it, ive had several stupid little problems with it, and the rear main would have pushed me right into a dodge.
oops.. am i allowed to use that word??? (im not that desperate)
thanks again!

oil leak

Lynn,
I'm new too. Just had the same symptoms on 02 7.3. Turns out to be the high pressure oil pump leaking at connections. Mine is located driver's side of the fuel filter. Has two lines coming off to the driver's side & also has an 18mm plug in the rear of pump w/snap ring retainer. Looks like a freeze plug. If yours has this pump it's worth a look.
GM & welcome

i got my hand under the orange part of the cac tubes (near the hose clamps) it was covered with fresh oil. the hose clamps did seem loose, i tightened them up, both sides. im thinking you were right on, that would be an easy fix. thanks!! unrelated to the oil leak, while i was digging around in there i happened to notice on the exhaust side of the turbo 2 hex bolts about 1 inch long, one was very loose the other was one more thread from being gone!! the truck only has 50k on it, its shaking itself apart i guess. i snugged them up, should i locktight these?? thanks again to all you guys for your help, you probly saved me a bunch of $$

spray it down with degreaser and clean it up good.
keep an eye on it to see if that was indeed the cause...
