Loss of coolant. I would guess the intake manifold gasket(s) have failed. Check your coolant make sure it is clean and the proper level. I believe the rear intake manifold gasket is bad on my 5.9 as well. If you can pull the front cover off of the trans you will have to remove the starter but if you are pooling oil from a rear main seal then there is your problem if not you just have to chase it down. It could be a few other things as well, like a bad o-ring on the distributor, bad oil pressure sending unit, or if all else bad head gasket(s).
