any other details you can share that would lead you to this assumption?
Many times you'll see oil running down back of engine into bell housing area and dripping right below. Many 1st assumptions on this is rear main when in fact most likely to be turbo pedestal o rings.
You probly have a little shiny puddle in the engine valley if ya look in there w/ a flashlight. The oil runs out a drain hole (not visible) towards back of engine and down into the bellhousing area. This keeps the valley of the engine filling up too much.
I'm no expert and there will be more qualified users posting here shortly I'm sure with more info.
