First Cold Start of year and now oil leak!?

Ok so this is the first time its been cold by me and i wanted to see how the truck started when cold so i left it unplugged over night. I went to start it about 6am and it started right up but i noticed it started leaking quite a bit of oil

i havent had a chance to look at it in the light yet so i dont know where its coming from but any ideas on what i should check?

it never leaked a drop of oil before this

the trucks an 02 7.3

thanks,
Brandon

Every winter my truck starts dripping oil out of the oil cooler at the front where the pipe goes into the block. When the weather warms up it quits. Just haven't gotten around to fixing it.

Oil cooler, dip stick port, but more likely the HPOP orings or turbo pedestal orings or EBPV oring.

With it starting with the cold it is probably the EBPV o-ring.... Mine started also... Just
have to track it down.. Not bad now, but if it is the pedestal o-rings it can leak very bad
once it gets going.
