Oil Leak

i have a pretty steady oil leak coming from my engine. I degreased what I could get to and can't really see where the oil is coming from. It seems mid way up behind the belt and fan so hard to see. Anyone know anything helpful?

pictures would help.


How do you know it is oil? Did you take a sample and smell it?


Couple of areas come to mind. First could be a vacumn pump leak and the second is possible turbo coolant line.


For the turbo though you need to shine a light into the valley of the motor and see if you can detect it.


But first, you posted in the 6.7 section so I assume that is what you have?


What year is your truck?

Oil leak

i know its oil because of the smell and look of it on my fingers. Also the huge puddle I have under my truck everyday.
It is a 6.7 and it's 2013

Is the valley in between the v? In between the heads?
