OIL LEAK!!! HELP!

Ive noticed a slow oil leak when my truck sits, I park it at night and the next morning there is an oil spot on the ground under the motor. The oil is all over my drivers side, its on the battery, my intake, the side of the motor, on my oil filter, the oil pan, my frame, down in the valley, the traction bars, tie rods. My truck eventually drained out of oil! I have a few ideas of where it could be comin from but I don't have all the time in the world to look with school and workin 6 days a week. I hope some of your PSD addicts can help me out and give me an idea of what my problem sounds like. Thanks!

Check the valve cover bolts on the offending side. They should be torqued to 98 INCH pounds. The one in the rear is a pistol to get to.

02 F350 CC 7.3 PS, auto, 6x6, 4.10 gears LB. AFE stage 2 intake, 4" AFE SS exh, 6.0 atf cooler, DP tuner with five stages Eng Temp gauge, EGT guage and Trans temp gauge. J.Woods valve body ATS turbo housing. Cooling sys filter & waterless coolant. NON WORKING POS FASS fuel filter sys. Brightbox headlites. I don't care what they say "There's no replacement for displacement." Don't believe statements about anything being better than a 7.3
GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!!

Rear Main is pretty unusual, many times leaks from above are misdiagnosed as one though (not saying it couldn't be,,, just check the more common areas first).

Wash the engine, especially the Valley, and roll-up a dz sheets of paper towel into a Giant Kotex. Slide it into the valley and it will give you the earliest indication of weather the leak starts in the front or back (if it's topside).

Here's an interesting video, BUT I have to warn you about this guy,,,, he makes Great Videos, that Does NOT make him infallible. 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
