Its probably the turbo pedistol Orings. Drain that oil with the seal additive in it. Never ever use that stuff in a powerstroke. additives like that can cause injector damage due to foaming

Others will tell ya more, but don't be so quick to assume it's the rear main... more likely the turbo pedistile or HPOP orings leaking, and filling the valley, then dripping down the back of the motor, to look like it's the rear main... I've heard that the rear main is not normally the culpret. Pop the hood, and check the valley...

I would recheck the valley. that is where my money is at.

also.. sometimes oil will leak down and sit on top of the tranny. There is a spot on top of the tranny where it can pool in. Then it could leak when the truck is parked on an incline.

Check the back of the head on the side of the leak. There is an access hole that has an o-ring that can leak. I had the same problem and Ford was able to locate it right away. I am glad it was fixed under warranty; the down pipe had to be removed to get to it.
