Has anyone had an issues with an oil leak? Smelled oil and looked underneath and it was just smoking. I did my oil about 2500 miles ago. Was fine till today so I doubt it's any of the orings. Looks to be coming from the engine above the oil pan?

I don't have a diesel, but I wouldn't immediately dismiss the possibility of an o-ring leak from either the filter or drain plug.
I think that after a clean up and short run the source may be obvious.

This techlink article states that the o-rings should be replaced every oil change:

I replaced the 2 on the housing. I just put a new plug on it 2 oil changes ago because the dealership had it all boogered

Changed the plug so we shall see. Maybe the oil sheared and got thinner to cause it to leak now.
