oil soaked

When to change oil today and the bottom of my motor on the pass side was oil soaked. Looks like it coming from a tube on the side of the motor .Is that blow by?? Motor has been clean for a long time,just happen.
This is a 99 F250 7.3.
Thanks
Kevin

check to see if you have a puddle of oil in you intake valley, it usually collects their then drains out the back down the left side of the bellhousing, for months I thought my rear main was leaking but it turned out to be the turbo mount o-rings.

Could be valve covers too...mine is a 97 and i had diesel in my valley...that stopped once i changed my pump but it could also be the fuel rail feed lines that run to the back of the heads. they might need tightening...Dumb question but is it oil for sure or Diesel mixed with grime.
