Oil Splatter under hood!!!

In the last few days, my truck has started bogging a few times, not due to shifting wrong. Also, today i saw a bird fly under my fender and i opened the hood to get it out, and oil was splattered under my hood on the right side, toward the front. Help!!???

did you try to turn the steering wheel with the engine off? probably just power steering fluid.

Yep, power steering fluid. It leaked on the pulleys and shot it on the hood. Thanks
