How many oil leaks does you 6.4 have

I have an oil leak on my truck that seems impossible to find. Its at the rear of the engine somewhere. The rear main, rear cover seal, hpfp seal and the dipstick tube have been replaced and oil still collects at the rear at the trans bellhousing and external trans filter. Not enough to drip but stays wet. I am tired of the multiple trips to the dealer(s) there have been 2 , and STILL not fixed. I was just wondering how many others have any annoying oil leaks that they are just monitoring and how bad they are leaking and if you are planning to have them fixed or not.

H&S tuned. B&W gooseneck hitch with Companion 5th wheel. Helwig rear sway bar. Edge CTS monitor. Dieselsite coolant filter. Rancho 9000 shocks. Airlift 5000 air bags with onboard compressor. Viair onboard air with 5 gal tank. Flo-pro stainless 4 in. exhaust.

I just went to the dealer last wed. for a really bad oil leak but it seemed to be a pressure leak. Long story short the last owner/whoever cross threaded the oil filter cap and when I drove it, the oil leaked like a river lol. An oil change later and i'm a extremely happy camper.

thats just the nature of diesels. My 05 6.0 does it, my 04 6.0 does it. my 6.4 DID it and when it went in for warranty i just mentioned there was oil around the bell housing. they replaced rear main and 8 months later it still isnt wet. Im very surprised its lasted this long and stayed dry. havent check our 2012 to see if it does the same and our 2013 should be ready for pick up soon.

check the turbo, if they have been removed a few times they probably frayed the orange one or the drain pipe o ring P.I.T.A. but doable. fixed mine and no more leaks

Zero here . First leak was turbo seal . Second leak was bed plate leaking between motor and bellhousing so a bunch of seals were replaced at that time . Been good since
