it may be fuel. there are about 4 places under there that will leak fuel then run down the back of the intake and down the rear of the engine and off the flywheel cover. check real good and make sure its oil before you go tearing into it! my lift pump was leaking, water in fuel sensor in the back of the fuel filter housing, a loose line, and the o rings in the full drain valve! and i thought it was oil at first too..

Just had this problem on an 01 7.3, it was a loose fitting on the HPOP
