This leak look familiar to anybody?

Was under the truck changing the fuel filter and spotted this. Look familiar to anyone? Want to be armed with info next time I take it in for an oil change.

my truck leaked around the pan by the trans there too but it wasn't as bad. I fixed it myself though by smearing some black high temp gasket maker on it and replacing the oil pan bolt that fell out some how.

It is all coming down the Pass side?? Hp oil pump is on the drivers side. Also maybe could be the turbo discharge oil line?? Looks like it is coming from way up there. Just guessing. Also I had a leak like that but it was diesel coming from the banjo bolt of my reg return.

just passenger side? My truck has oil on the lower part of the trans, and the back of the oil pan, but mine looks like its coming from somewhere around the oil dip stick on the driver side. Its the 6 leaker

I had a similar leak, supposedly when I changed my oil i spilled a little. I dont know if you change your oil or have it done, but wipe it off and see how long it takes to come back. Wipe everywhere you can reach, then monitor it daily to see if you can find where it is coming from.
