F150 OIL LEAK

1998 Ford F-150

Engine Mechanical problem
1998 Ford F150 V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 101500 miles

Leaking oil but not from oil plug, oil pan gasket, valve cover gasket. Performance has not yet been effected. No water in the oil. I've cleaned the engine and it looks like it is leaking from below the valve cover on the right side over the front axle. Any ideas what this is and how much it would cost to repair? Is this something I could do myself as a novice mechanic (I do my own maintenance and brakes, etc.).

Hello,

How far below the valve cover?

It could be the Oil Pressure Sending Unit a cracked head or a Blown Head Gasket.
