2000 F250 7.3

Running rough at idle and when ramped up a little it gets worse, let off it stumbles back to idle. found oil on the bottom of the transmission (manual) then followed the path of the oil to the top of the engine (in the valley). In one place in the valley it has a puddle of oil. I have read that it could be a number of things including turbo seals. I would be grateful if someone could list the possible problems and fixes, I have read that it could be a total of around five possible problems.

bought the truck with 43,000 miles on it
present mileage 119,000
oil and filter changed every 3,000 miles since I bought it!!!!
no heavy towing since I bought it (last year towed a sailboat that all total (boat, trailer, motor) came in just shy of 4,000lbs.
