HELP 7.3 powerstroke is leaking oil and I don't know where from

We have an 2003 F250 7.3 powerstroke. There is an oil leak that looks like it is coming out of the inspection plate for the fly wheel. It appers to be engine oil. Any ideas or has anyone else had this problem????

Get a drop light and look in the valley on the top of the engine Most people think that the rear main seal is leaking but the leak is usually at the top of the engine and it flows to the back of the valley whare there is a drain hole that goes to the bellhousing...Good luck..
