Some other places that are common to cause the oil drip in that area are the "engine bed plate", which is a huge job to fix, as the whole motor must be removed to disassemble. Or the left front lower area camshaft position sensor seal leaks and runs down the left side of the block and drips at the back. Or the high pressure pump cover leaks and runs down the back of the engine. The bed plate leak is pretty common, as mine has leaked from nearly day one, but is very minor and hasen't gotten worse over the years. Just leaves a few drips hanging on the bell housing but never leaves any drips on the floor. The term 6-leaker is usually caused/associated by the bed plate leaking.
