Oil Leak

So i got in my truck today and went to my buds house for awhile. luckily he was paying attention when i left and noticed a big puddle of oil so he called and told me. I pulled over and got out and looked and there was oil running out of the bottom. It looks like it is coming from the back of the engine running down the starter. There doesnt look like any leaks in the valley or from the valve cover but i cant find it and i need it fixed tomorrow if possible. any ideas of what to check or what it might be would help a lot. Thanks

Check the pan where the dipstick enters. I have a leak in that spot. Check the pan itself to see if it has rotted out.

Turbo pedestal is another leak point when the o-rings get old.

Found it. It was an o-ring on my HPOP. Went to Ford and they wanted $35 for 3 o-rings. Told him to keep em and went to the International dealer and bought 2 for bout $2.
