sick of oil leaks

I've been fixing oil leaks on my truck for about a month now, and its leaking again.

I talk to a buddie that work at a ford dealership and he said there is a bolt and o-ring on one of the head not sure which one has anybody heard of this, or know where it is?

Do you have oil accumulating in the valley? If you do there is a good chance it could be the HPOP o-rings starting to leak or the high pressure oil lines. They have o-rings. There are also some plugs on the heads that can leak, these are located on the head just below the fuel rails, or just above the valley area. Is it actually oil or could it be fuel? I had a leak that I thought was oil a couple years back and it ended up being fuel instead. The fuel line going into the back of the passenger head was slightly leaking. Hope this helps ya some, Gene :mafia

there was some oil in the valley, I have already the hpop o-rings, and the bolts in the valley with o-rings have been changed, so have the turbo o-rings

Is it possibly coming from the high pressure oil line cross over? You did not mention that. Have you smelled it to make sure it's oil? You say you had some oil in the valley, but is it still accumulating after replacing all that you mentioned? Gene :mafia

I cleaned it up the best I could and its been a couple weeks,still leaking.
I forgot to say that it only drips when the truck is shut off to.

Have you checked the EBPV on the turbo pedistal. I had a leak there, if that's it you might as well remove it.

When you say it is still dripping is it only in the valley area or is it coming down the back of the block onto the ground? If down the back of the block you really need to make sure what it is oil or fuel. The plug in the back of the fuel rail can leak when not running as the fuel flows to the front of the passenger side head when running and is pretty much used up and what doesn't get used goes back to the tank, but when shut down it can leak out the plug. You have not said if it's oil or fuel for sure unless I missed something. Gene :mafia

I thought it was oil but I will have to double check, its for sure not in the valley just down the back of the block.
