oil dump

I need a little help and or advice, last thursday I was driving to the desert with the family and noticed a slight vibration at a stop light went about another 20 miles and pulled to get fuel, found about 2 -3 qts oil under the truck and the undercarriage covered, coulndnt find any thing from the top, turbo hose or heads, couldnt see the rear main of course, it should be at the shop today. Again any insight would be great

Sorry 2 say but it sounds like injectors. How was your oil level? Did it smell of fuel?

thanks for the input guys just got the truck back to the house and started looking for the reason for the oil spray on the under carriage and side of the engine found that it was coming from the tube by the vacumn pump so i checked the oil level again and found it to be high. draine about 6 -7 gallons out. Just las april I replaced them bought them through Pensocola diesel. Wont do that again

Most of the time when LB7 injectors go bad they dump fuel in the crankcase. Someone didn't fill it up that much.
