Oil leak and I mean oil leak

Check out the pic below and tell me what this is all about I just notice this.

And it seems to be coming out faster than I can put it in. It seems to be coming out of a hole next to the dip stick. What is this all about? 96 7.3 PSD auto please help.

Make sure the oil isn't coming out from higher than that. If everything is dry above it that it's prob where the dip stick goes in. It looks like yours has a rubber grommet there.

that is a fairly common problem with the 7.3 , the grommet for the oil dipstick will work loose , the big nut on the outside sometimes can be tightened , if it is loose try and tighten it , if the o-ring on the inside of the oil pan has slipped , guess what the engine has to come out and th e oil pan taken off to fix , i have fixed several but just tightening , you may get lucky , as bad as that is leaking i dont think you will, if you drop the starter off it helps to be able to tighten , if the nut seems to want to just spin , go get a new nut and try that before jerking engin out , if youll hold it with a pair of vise grips while you pull the dipstick out you can swap the big nut , if you drop it guess what , r&r engine , be carefull whatever you do

Yeah while you were adding yours i was editing mine with the right link.

Thanks for the info.

So should I take this to the shop to do so if they mess it up and have to pull the motor its on them or should I try to do this my self. And if push comes to shove and have to pull the motor can I just lift up enough to get the oil pan off or does this thing have to come out completely.

you can pull the oil pan in the truck , but in my opion if you have a decent place to pull it out , its easier to just pull the engine out , you do have a point on that take it somewher and let them screw it up idea , ill leave that up to you

Ok see if this makes any since:
Red arrow point to the “Big Nut”
Purple arrow point to the dipstick thing (lack of better words)
Blue arrow show where the oil leak is coming from

So where are the o-ring under the big nut and the dipstick thing meaning there are 2 of them? Or just under the dipstick thing. Also if I turn the big nut does the dipstick come out as one unit mean the big nut and the dip stick or does it just unscrew the dipstick from the pan. Please bare with me I am new to the diesel world. So if these question sound dump I am sorry it’s just that I want/need to no what I am getting in to.

And thanks again for all you support in this matter.
