01 puking lots of oil from somewhere

got an 01 that i used to drive almost everyday, was gonna go on a trip to west va and was doing an oil change the night before i was to leave. so i change the oil, start her up drive down the road, turn around go about 8 miles pull back up to the house where it was sitting before and as im pulling up i see oil leading down the street. i look under the truck and its just pissing oil.. i see it streaming out from between the engine and tranny so right away i thought rear main seal.... or is there something above that, that would leak that badly and just be running past the seal and down?

just to tie up loose ends i swapped wheels and tires and took the 6.0 to west va, 29mpg and ran like a champ...

Your HPOP will leak like that and the oil will run down the vally and there is a little drain hole at the end of the vally it will run down the engine between the bell housing and out the inspection cover making it look like the rear main the rearly go out on the 7.3s.

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

top of motor, in front of fuel bowl. There's 2-high pressure lines, leaving it on the driver side. One going to each "bank" / head. They see excess of 3000+ psi, so ya, after a while of use..(150k miles to be the norm), is a good time to replace them...

Look in the valley if you see oil then you either have a HPOP line that failed, or your HPOP is leaking. If your valley is dry then it is most likly your turbo pedistal. The EBPV in the pedistal is known to leak on these engines, and trust me (I know from experience) they can leak large amounts of oil. Also, the large oil rail plugs on each end of the heads can also leak large amounts of oil if the orings fail. Rear seal failures are uncommon, but anything is possible.

Instead of guessing, buying parts you don't need, or just replacing Everything, why don't you just watch the video so you understand what the possibilities are? Then, wash out the valley and roll-up 1/2dz paper towels and slide them in there (like a giant Kotex ) and drive it around the block.

If the Front of the towels are wet the problem is around the HPOP, if it's wet in the Back it has to do with the Turbo...

It's not Rocket Science!
