6.0 2005 Super Duty: Very Slow Leak Eng/Tran Gasket Area?!!

Hi Guys, this leak is so slow that if you don't drive, it does not leak and it makes a drop big enough to fall on the ground in about 2 or 3 days of just "errand" driving. I'm retired so don't put a lot of miles on my rig but am planning to go full time RVing in my TC so this is serious.
It sure looks like it's from the engine side to me and I checked the tranny fluid and the dipstick shows very clean sweet smelling pink fluid just like it should.
I have an appointment to take it to Ford on the 7th & they said they would know what the cause is... I suppose it has to be rear mains and not just something nice and simple like a pan gasket eh? I sure would like to extend the fix on this one with my current life situation.
Any thoughts on this greatly appreciated... Morgan

any oil leak is a $$ IMHO

I have the same for 2 years mine is a bed plate and the repair is over 2k so it just drips and I just wipe it down

oil pan /bed plate /rear main $$$ they will dye test and pinpoint then get you an estimate on the repair cost
and probably charge you 150 bucks minimum (IMO) for the labor and dye to pinpoint

Oil Leak:

ZMANN, thanks for the response. Yes, quoted diagnosis testing will be 115.00!
I hate that but got to know what it is..
I should have mentioned I am just under 150K on the odo..
I Gunked it clean and it took days to reveal its ugly self again so with the
situation I am in, I am really not ready to pay the big bucks but will for
sure do it later after the $$ storm I am in blows over...
I wonder if Ford will tell me it's urgent and must be repaired now
or like you, tell me I can drive it like that for a little longer as long
as I monitor it. Speaking of minitoring, next funds available for my
rig were slated for an Edge Systems Monitor so if I already had that
maybe it would show drop in pressures or whatever...?
