Was trying to chase down a coolant leak and when I looked under the engine, there is oil everywhere. None is dripping on the driveway though. It's hard to see in these pics but just wondering if anyone had any ideas where it's coming from.

Maybe just a sloppy job of changing the oil filter? I don't have a 5.4L, so can't picture the arrangement of the components to the filter.

My '07 EL leaks at the power steering pump, but it's slow enough that I just top the reservoir off every few months with an ounce or two of fluid. It looks like yours could be similar. I don't have the buildup around the balancer area like you do, however. I'd get a couple of cans of engine degreaser and clean off the area, then let the leak show itself again.
