Default 2002 Ford F350 Diesel 7.3l Oil Leak Need Help

Ok guys I am just a silly Gurl so keep the help simple. I have an oil leak at the back of the motor, at the top, looks like it is leaking from under the Turbo Motor. Any Suggestions?

could be turbo pedestal o-rings, or as simple as the air intake spider boots leaking oil and running down the lip of the intake plenum and into the valley or down the back.

More then likely its a turbo pedistal leak, but it could be the exhaust back pressure valve rod.

As others have said, clean the area really well and drive. You should be able to pin point the area better.

Pulling the turbo is not hard, can be done with basic driveway tools.
