Oil leak in front of engine

Every time I drive and let truck sit, there is an oil spot about 8" around. There is also oil all over the front diff cover. There is no oil around front hpop cover or around there. Where can this be coming from then

If its oil, my bet is the front side of the oil cooler, it will leak all over the axle.

If its red, its something from your power steering system, likely the steering box

Its black engine oil. You could be right on it being the oil cooler, as I recall seeing it have small traces of oil on it last summer.
Ill have to look better (of course when its warmer out )

It leaks like a siv when its cold and I first start it. Today at work it was actually dripping from where ever. Then once warm, it quit. I am leaning towards oil cooler also, but need to look while its leaking.

Quit trying to figure out what it is....it's the oil cooler leaking. You don't need to look while it's leaking, the most common symptom is leaking on a cold start and stopping when oil temp comes up.

Get the oil cooler seals and fix it.
