Leaking oil from dip stick at pan

Ok...I get home the other night and pull into the garage and find an oil trail all the way into the garage and up the drive way. Got to looking around under the truck and the oil is running out of the dip stick tube at the pan.....the large nut on the out side was not very tight...Do you think that the O-ring is compromised? Is it possible to change without pulling the oil pan off? I have not tried it since I tighttened the large nut.
Thanks

i have changed that o ring,it swells up,i pulled the engine on a customers vehicle to do it,this was in a 96 f350.
i have also loosened the nut off and cleaned it very well and siliconedit then tightened the nut back up,and let it sit overnight.
i did this a year ago and still not leaking.
i would try the silicon first that is what i am going to try

If you go to the 7.3 stickies and go into Maintains creative thread, you can find some good info on this in the very last frame. Good Luck!

Have you done this? Does the O-ring still need too be removed? Do you know the part number for the kit?
