05 f350 6.0 diesel

I have oil leak I cannot find, mind you I just bought this truck 2 months ago has 242000 miles and has egr delete on it already and fixed a wire to turbo as well already and the other usual new front rear brakes and did transaxle gear oil front and rear and coolant and oil change and fuel filters done too. also new serpentine belt.

I noticed past few days I have leak under passenger and driver side runs down over trans and exhaust manifold and drips I took off top intercooler hoses and air stuff and looked all in gulley and was 0 oil in it looked at turbo lines all look dry, on front passenger side of engine by intake I did notice small drips of oil, brings me a question can the intake leak oil and if so how from this location?

Second, passenger side leak seems back of engine over trans down past exhaust manifold to trans cooler lines then drips to floor what location should I look at is there a possible sensor can leak from on back of motor or can the rear seal be cause of this or is there something im missing

I have 0 engine codes and starts runs fine oil level always seems full, and doesn't smell sweet smells like oil which noted color has soot color in it and only been 1500 miles ish since last oil change.

also I feel there is an exhaust leak up front but don't know how to determine this without a smoker. in cab you turn on heat I smell like exhaust but fresher it maby me it is first diesel I ever owned so give your opinion if normal, but with ac on there is no smell.

these are my only concerns any and all help will be Greatly appreciated as dealership is outta there mind on prices for things I have knowledge to do anything myself with some sort of guidance from others on what to do I did have schooling in auto technology degree just diesel a new ball game for me
