Oil Leak - Pic

Ok so while changing my oil I noticed this. Asked my buddy the mechanic and he said possibly the rear main seal. Worry or not to worry?

NORMAL!!

I would check the blue cac tube rubber connector at the turbo to ensure it is not leaking there and running down to the bell housing.

Mine has about the same amount of oil on the bell housing, maybe a little more.

I've looked all over and I can't find the trail. Looks to be coming from where the motor mounts to the bellhousing? Weird thing is I'll clean it off and it want come back until a few days later? I'll do a bit more looking this even and see what I can come up with.

I know it's not my icp. Mine is up front on the right hand side valve cover and it's not leaking. I'll look some more to see if it's trailing down somewhere else.

Mine also keeps oil there. Will often drip a small dot in the driveway. I will probably take it in to Ford this Spring before my warranty is up and have it checked out.
