oil leak help

So im new to the forum and new to diesel engines. Im looking at a 2002 f350. 112000 miles very clean. Ran great droce fine. Transmission shifted smooth. My only concern is that there is oil all over the oil pan. With the truck running i crawled underneath and didnt see any dripping. My biggest worry is that the oil pan needs to be replaced. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks guys.

Check the oil cooler on the driver side of the motor under the exhaust manifold... looks like a 2 1/2" pipe with caps.... they are a common spot for the leaks you can't find...

only way to reseal the oil pan is to remove/jack the motor up...hopefully in your case its coming from somewhere else..only way to tell is to degrease and wipe the whole pan and bottom of the motor and let it run and see...hopefully you see the leak starting from up higher on the motor..when my top intercooler boots were leaking(boots on the 4 way pipe not on the actual intercooler), i recall half of my pan having grime on it.

oil leak

check the valley, if the pedestal or HPOP o rings leak, it runs down the left side of engine into transmission cover plate and coats the oil pan. Check if it is diesel or oil, the starter probably has good amount of oil also. If oil/diesel is not dripping, check the water drain valve, good spot for diesel leaks, or the fuel filter canister o ring.
