Oil leak coming from the back of the motor.

I have a 02 f 250 with 67000 miles on it and it looks like its leaking from the vavle covers. Real small leak only leaving few spots on the floor but seems a little early to be leaking with only 67000 miles on it. Any suggestions where to start checking because ive heard about alot all the connections towards the rear of the motor that can leak.

Check the normal places first.

HPOP
EBPV
Turbo Pedistal Orings.

My guess is the HPOP is spraying your valve covers...

Try cleaning the contaminated areas with brake cleaner & dry it really well. Take it for a ride a good enough distance where the engine oil can get hot. Bring it home and see if there are any fresh oil leaks and follow them back to the source. If it doesn't work the 1st time, keep monitoring it after you take it for a spin. From my experience, usually an oil leak coming from the rear of the motor indicates a faulty rear main. Check all your harware on you oil pan after you spray & wipe it.
