First, Glad to have you - to the ORG!

Leaks, drips. IF at a dealer, ask for any maintenance records or an OASIS report. That will give you some background on it.

Next, you might want to check out the ORG's chapter for Indiana / Illinois members:
Illiana Strokers - Ford Powerstroke Diesel Forum
Some of the locals might be able give you some pointers as well.

Good luck!!
