These 7.3's don't lose rear mains very often. Chances are the oil is leaking from the top of your motor. Is it leaking down past the starter? If so, there is a weep hole in the rear of the valley on top of your motor. Any oil that leaks up there runs to the rear of the valley, through this weep hole & down the rear of the motor on passenger side. You should diagnose where the leak is B4 you take it in. Ford may just start replacing stuff w/o finding the leak first.
Spray a ton of gunk or starting fluid on the top of the "cool" motor & clean it up. Let her get good & hot, & while it's running, carefully jump up on the truck & shine a powerful light everywhere. Look at your turbo pedistol, HPOP, Plugs in the rear of the heads, Prolly turbo pedistal o-rings. Google Bill Hewitt, he's on powerstrokehelp.com Look at the 7.3 oil leak video. Very infomative. Good luck
