Motor oil on bottom of hood?

So I was checking oils and I happened to look at the underside of my hood and I noticed oil splattered up on it. Then I looked more closely at the oil filter housing and there was oil around and on top of the wire tunnel above the turbo too. I just bought the truck at the end of Feb and that was all clean. Checked to see if it had a motorcraft oil filter and it did and the o-ring was there so i dont know what it could be from. Any ideas what is causing it?

Check your dipstick, a blocked up CCV will cause the dipstick to pop out with the pressure build up from a blocked up CCV. Also the dipstick "T" handle have been known to crack.

Mine did that. The oil was coming from my oil filter housing. The cap wasn't on tight enough. Also check your turbo infeed tube could be bad gasket or break in line.

Well its not coming from the dipstick, and I know it wasnt the oil cap on too loose cause I had a heck of a time just getting it off. It might be a supply line, thats all I can think of now, the oil was dead center all the way back under the hood, so that would put it about right. I guess I'll just tryin and clean it up real good and check it daily.

I was getting oil residue and splatter from the intake elbow and cac tube connection. I just did the ccv mod to help eliminate that problem. My clamp is tightened to spec but it still just dont seal that well at that point.

Yeah I would check your turbo supply line that would be exactly where it's located
