MAJOR oil leak.

Started my truck up just a little while ago.Let it run for a minute and backed up and ran inside.As I was coming out I saw a huge puddle of oil underneath the truck and shut it off. After furhter inspection it looks like its coming from above the power steering pump and also from the top of the motor starter side.you let it run it flows out everywhere.Any ideas? Dealers are closed and I have no way to go right now.Cant believe its pouring this much oil.Help.

Where is the oil rail plug exactly located.Ive never worked on this one before so I dont know,never had a problem.I drove a 91 7.3 for 12 years and worked on it.thanks for any help.

Ive re started the truck and its still pouring out.I have looked all around the back side of the engine and right where the turbo tubes come together theres a shelf like there and it looks like where that may be where its coming from.Its pourin down the passenger side. Gonna remove the fromnt turbo pipe to see if I can see above the power steering and find that leak there.

Talked to a buddy of mine and he said it sounds like a icp sensor.
