Look in the 7.3 section. Good info there.

Probably not a big deal.

oil leak

look in the valley under the hood. possibly the HPOP. It will fill the valley and leak out the inspection hole and resemble a pan or main seal leak. dont pay ford to fix it as if it is the HPOP they say it a non seviceable part. It is a cheap viton gasket. had mine fixed twice as the incorrect seal was used first. now new leaks etc.

Yep-what he said-check the intake valley,could be HPOP,HPOL oil lines,turbo pedistal,never hurts to check tightness of oilpan bolts either.
