Well your not supposed to have an oil leak Check around your turbo pedestal as the orings can leak there and check the valley on your motor as the orings on the hpop can leak also.

It's pretty normal for a 7.3L to leak a little. You can fix it if you like. Me, I just let it leak. I check the oil everyother diesel fill up and add oil accordingly.

2002 PSD Oil Leak

Have a look at the O rings on the High Pressure Oil Pump. The lines move a bit. My truck leaked a little for a few days then a lot on the last day. Most noticeable on the bottom of the bell housing!


Regards,
Adam

If it's leaking in the valley, then it drains down to the pan from the drain hole above it in the valley. It's to keep it from building up in the valley.

Most common problems are HPOP lines, turbo pedestal o-rings, and rusted oil pan.

Oil Leak

My buddy has a 2001 that had an oil leak. He had to change the oil pan. It had rusted out. I see your in MI also, the salt eats oil pans in many vehicles here!! He also had to change the cover on the rear end the next year for the same problem. Now he does push snow all winter which I'm sure don't help. I just keep a good lookout for the rust problem on mine. I guess to change the pan, ya gotta yank the motor! Don't sound like a good time to me. Good luck
