Oil Leak

Well my 7.3l leaks alot of oil. It seems like every month or so im always having to put a gallon or so of oil in it. Its getting frustrating, I dont know where its coming from. The entire under side of the engine gets coated from driving and its ticking me off big time. any suggestions?

first thing is to see if their is oil in the valley of the motor, if there is check the hpop o-rings its a real common and real easy fix. if thats not where its leaking from degrease the entire motor and clean off as much gunk as you can so you can tell where its leaking from

if its not up higher in the valley your hpop orings are fine, if its in the back its either your ebpv rod(mine leaked, stupid pos is gone now ha ha ha ha ) or your turbo pedestal orings(they can leak quite alot, they arent that bad to change, 4 of them).
