Chasing an Oil Leak 2012 F-250 6.7

105K on 2012 6.7 SD. After the truck sits for a couple of days, Ill get a couple of oil spots on the ground. Crawled underneath the drivers side to find the fwd yoke covered in oil. Oil is coming down the back of the engine on the drivers side. Have poked around up top and can't find the source. Attached is a picture as I am shooting straight up the back side of the engine on the drivers side. There is a small oil pooled as well on the aluminum square piece up top too

Any ideas where I should look?

Thanks

I think you mean transmission, not engine. Regardless, I agree, looks like a royal PIA and $$$$$

I would check the valley of the motor with a flash light. Concentrate on the turbo lines.

The oil separator is right above that. I would look closely at the two spots it mounts to the balance cover and see if itís running from there.
