Various 7.3 fluid leaks

So I pulled my truck inside the shop for the past 2 nights, and noticed both mornings some oil on the floor. I got under the truck, and right under the transmission (I have a manual transmission) there was some leaking oil. First off, I thought the transmission fluid was red, but this just looked like brownish motor oil. It was right around the drain plug, and I wiped it off and attempted to tighten it, but it was tight. There are a few bolts behind the drain plug and these were a little wet from the oil as well, but they also seemed tight. Any other ideas where this might be coming from? I'm going to pull my truck back in tonight and check the transmission fluid level.

any oil on the engine side of things? could be leaking down the back/side of the engine onto the tranny.

Careful that clown on the net has a lot of BS as well!!
First is to make sure what type of fluid it is. My bet it is engine oil draining down from the valley. Most common places are leaking O rings on the HPO lines, turbo pedestal O rings, and also the CCV will saturate the intake boots with oil, they will drip down into the valley and eventually down the back of the engine. If this is the source of your oil PM me and I will tell you how to keep the oil out of your intake.
