7.3 oil leak

My truck started dripping a little oil again. Its only about 1 drop a week, but you can see it running down the back of the engine and on my starter. I checked the HPOP fittings and they seem dry. I looked as best as i could at the turbo pedistal o-rings and i didn't see a lot of oil back there, but i did notice oil on my left valve cover under my intake tube. It looks fresh, whats that little thing on top of the left valve cover in the rear? Theres oil all over that. Any ideas guys?

Pressure Washing Engine

What special precautions do you guys take before you use a pressure washer
to wash your engine. 7.3 like to leak around turbo pedestal.Do you warm engine up? I am thinking covering up alternator,glow plug relays anything else? Thanks.

What you described is the CCV.

Turbo pedistal, HPOP Orings/lines, and EBP rod are the usual suspects.

I thought it was the ccv, just wasn't sure. That seems to be where most of my oil is coming from. The hpop connections are good. I can't get a real good look at the turbo pedistal or the ebpv rod, so those might be leaking a little. I just don't feel like removing the turbo.
