I have a super slow leak on the front cover I think and I'm living with it because my wife will make me sell the truck / divorce me if I take it in the shop in the next year.

I just changed the oil this weekend and noticed I now have a slow drip. Mine is the drain plug but I do not plan to live with it. I will tolerate it until the next change though.

all of our diesel drip around the bell housing for some reason. this last time my 6.4 was in for warranty i showed them, the replaced rear main and its dry 8k miles later. first time ever i have had a truck that isnt dripping. our 6.0 always has a piece of cardboard under it in the garage. our 6.7 is dry but its only got 15k miles so we will see

Mine has had a leak at since I bought it. Had rear main replaced 2x , rear cover seal and hpfp cover seal , dipstick tube replaced and it still stays wet at bellhousing, just barely enough not to drip but I keep it wiped off every time I drain the seperator. The dealer has told me they can see it has a leak but they just cant find it ( really?). I'm about to the point to just live with it too. But just knowing it has a leak drives me up the wall. My 03 f150 has a small oil leak but I can expect that with 185xxx miles, but this truck only has 66xxx miles and has leaked since I bought it at 33xxx. Sorry for the rant but I know how you feel.

If it's at the drainplug, replace the copper washer. My leak stopped after that. After a couple oil changes it's leaking again ever so slightly. Time for a new washer.

Mine has a slow leak that collects on the bell housing. After inspection I believe it's coming from the bedplate. I'm out of warranty so the leak is here to stay. It doesn't drip and hasn't gotten any worse in the last few thousand miles. It drives me crazy knowing it's there but I'm not paying to have the engine pulled to fix a small leak.
