Oil Leak

I posted this in the 6.0 problems forum but I thought I would put it on the local page as well. I discovered an oil leak the other day (oil spots on the driveway). I just bought the truck 2 weeks ago and it only has 50K on it. I am hoping I didn't get screwed . I am posting some pics. If anyone has any ideas I would appreciate the help.

can you trace it up any higher?

and you can also try to just spray it down with some brake clean and see if it comes back. the only thing on the passenger side that could leak would be your valve cover i would think. just clean it and see what happens or try to trace where its coming from

yeah man no problem. ill check it out tomorrow and maybe i can give you some better info. but when you check see up by the valve cover, maybe you have some oil around there, and also try checking up on the top of the motor like under the turbo area, its called the "valley" see if there is anything up there as well.

ill come check out your new pics tomorrow and we'll get you all fixed up and clean up!

So before it started raining, hailing and snowing here today (gotta love Iowa weather ) I crawled around to see if I could see any oil in the valley and sure enough it is covered in oil. I did a little more reading on here today and it would appear to be the Hpop (?) or something to do with the CCV? Leaking in one of those two spots filling up the valley and then running down the back of the engine? Does that sound like possibility? The CCV mod sounds like a good idea to me but I guess I better take care of whatever is leaking first? Thanks

I didn't get a chance to take any more pics before is started raining but the top engine and intercooler is really dirty.

i would check your turbo oil return..its just a push in fitting and its got an oil ring..that could leak, or you may have it leaking from the feed on the top of the turbo...both are easy cheap fixes. the CCV mod is nothing more then taking the crank case hose and running it down the truck and exiting it pass your fuel tank. blocking it off where it comes up in your intake. that just helps keep oil out of your i/c pipes and what not. mine is rerouted and it still has oil in my pipes.

could be the Hpop but i would check the turbo out first.
