02 oil leak

I have an 02 f250 with a pretty decent oil leak. There's usually a puddle about 10 inches around after sitting for 24 hours. Its coming from the flywheel cover. The valley on top has oil residue n junk pretty much all over but there's not really a puddle except for a tiny bit in the ear near the turbo but its not much. I'm trying to figure out where its coming from. What would make it leak while its not running? I would think that it wouldn't be from anything up top since the whole gravity thing. Is there anything I could do to determine if its the rear main seal or coming from the valley? Its got 350k so I could imagine it could be anything

I've got the same thing with my 99. My pass side fuel line is leaking from the head and leaves a large puddle of fuel on the ground if parked for a day or two. It looks like oil but is fuel. I don't know why it leaks when parked instead of when running, but it does.

Spray some degreaser in the valley and take it to the car wash. Get it all cleaned up and then check for leaks. I'm putting my money on turbo pedestal orings. Also it leaks when it is running then you stop the oil then runs down the back of the block when it is off. Very little oil is required to make a 10" circle btw.

Its leaking at the fitting at the back side of the pass head. It degreases all the gunk and old oil and looks like oil on the block and ground. Under the truck, the trans inspection cover and starter are wet. I still can't fathom why it takes a good 48 hours before it piddles on the driveway.

Mine was leaking pretty good like that recently. Turned out was a slow drip from the hpop oil plug.Slight leak at idle is a big leak under pressure and would leak everywhere and would be low on oil in about 2k miles. Got em from diesel o-rings plus.
