Small Oil Leak

Just inherited a 2001 F250 and when I park it and come out a day or so later I have a small oil spot on the street about the size if a dollar bill. Where should I start looking to find this oil leak. I am not a mechanic by any means but like to try to fix things if I can.

Any help steering me in the right direction is appreciated.

Truck has 108,000 on the odometer. (7.3L

The first thing I would do is take a look in the top of the engine if you canít pin point the leak give it a good clean. your height pressure oil pump is right under the fuel bowl. It has lines coming from it to each head check those and several plugs on the pump on the back. Check the fuel bowl there a drain valve it is yellow it will leak as well. Check the turbo it can leak were it mounts to the block there is also a rod coming out of the pedestal attached to the turbo that can leak as well. A few other places is passenger side of oil pan were the dipstick is to check oil level right by the starter can leak.
