Oil leak (yes I searched)

So before someone posts a video or anything like that please read my whole post first. I am very familiar with the Hpop o rings etc... I did them on my last truck.

On my 2000 I have I would say half dollar size oil spot on my driveway everyday. Underneath the truck the oil is definitely dripping from the hole in the inspection plate. However the front of the engine valley is dry and the rear near the hole is dry. There is some oil in the middle where it looks like there is a low spot (lower than the drain hole) and its not really even a pool more like just greasy.(I think thats just left over from me washing the motor)

Both Hpop hoses are not leaking and I cleaned the motor the best I could and cannot find any obvious leaks up top. Like I said the drain hole near the rear appears to be dry, That fuel line that runs from the passenger side also seams to be in good shape although the spot where it passes the "greasy spot" I described above the pipe seems greasy. I took a pic but the picture makes the whole area look wet when its not (just the finish on the paint coming off)

The two orange rubber couplings on each side weren't clamped down too tight either so maybe that explains the grime around that area.

Also just below the valve cover near the driver side firewall (like the piece that the cover bolts to is kinda greasy, Im not sure if its being slung around or thats another leak.

like I said it looks wet all over buts its really only around those rubber boots
Where else can I check up there for leaks? Its not a major leak but it drives me nuts.

Wouldnt that leak into the valley though? the oil is dripping from the inspection plate area would where you described would the oil end up there? Because Im 99% sure its not leaking through that drain hole on he top of the motor.

my turbo is leaking. I think the seals are just beginning to go bad. I can get under it and see oil wetness and a drip on the bolt to the uppipe on the pass side. I see thsiu from the drivers side from underneath looking up. It then runs to the pass side and down as if it was coming thru the drain hole in the intake.

So I still can't figurenthis out, I get a real strong burnt oil smell when the heat is on and the truck is under heavy load ( highway driving or pulling a trailer or plowing)

Should I just get the pedestal seals? And I have ton read some more on the ebpv but if it's leaking from there is there a fix for that or do I have to gut it?

I had a similar leak with my 2000. I had 2-4" round spots everywhere I parked for awhile. The leak seemed to have stopped after I did my CCV mod and cleaned all my IC pipes and boots.

It's probably coming from the EBPV actuator rod. I bought the $12 O rings for the pedestal thinking that was it, but it wasn't. I'm glad I replaced them though. Deleted the EBPV, plugged the actuator rod hole, and no oil leaks.
