Oil everywhere

Oil is all over the engine, on the bottom of the truck, just everywhere. It ran fine all day, on the way home and everything. I got out and took a glance at the truck and saw a puddle underneath it and oil dripping fast. What do you guys think?

I would check the oil pump. Can you tell where generally it is comming from? Where is the oil concentrated?

You have the HPOP but usually it's the lines that go into the heads that are leaking. You can get a kit from dieselorings.com

its more concentrated in the middle of the engine. I was thinking something to do with the HPOP, so thats probably it?

It will sit in the valley either way. You need to start it up and see where it is leaking. Your truck will not run without oil but if it makes you feel better you can check the oil and fill if need be.

It might help to clean it off before doing this, but if it is as big a spill as you imply, it shouldn't matter.

I would clean everything up and look to see. But i had a similiar problem and it ended up being the HPOP. i had oil in the valley and concentrated right in the middle of the engine underneath. I put a special dye in my oil and one of the guys i work with checked it with a black light

Interested in the outcome. I have 'some' oil in the valley and sometimes I get drips underneath - I'm wondering IF I have something worse coming.
