Just changed the oil pan gasket in my 1996 ford windstar and its still leaking oil and there is oil all over the passenger side of my van ,where else can this leak be?


You have a front and rear main seal, if either of these are leaking the oil will be coming from the center of the engine above the oil pan. There are 2 1 in front and 1 in back of the engine.\015\012\015\012Rate my answer.............Than ... 1996 Ford Windstar

Our 1999 Ford Windstar was making a droning noise when turning which improved upon adding additional power steering fluid (it was not empty at the time, about 1/2 full). It had been leaking but then seemed to be ok. I drove it one time and it didn't leak and another time and it seemed to drop from full to 1/2 full. At the same time, our interior lights are staying on when car is driving and when stopped. We sanded, cleaned, oiled all the connectors and it really isn't better. The lights tur

Front right differential seal is leaking. Is it much to repair? Is it something that I could do myself with limited mechanical ability? Approx. how much should it cost at Ford to do. Is there an additive I can add to the oil to stop it? Started about 1 mo ago when I changed the oil to synthetic.


You mean the axle seal is leaking if it is not the one that is for the driveshaft. If you have limited mechanical ability I would recommend that you take it to a shop to have it repaired. There are special tools that are used to drive the seal back i ... 2007 Ford Explorer Sport Trac

Oil leak? My 1996 Volvo 960 takes 7 qts. of oil up on a oil change. after 1,000 miles, the dipstick shows no oil. Add 1 qt. it is full again. Another 1,200 miles, same outcome. I changed the 3 seals in the oil filter housing, changed the coolant hoses that connect to the housing, also the gasket on the oil pan drain plug. All of these places I believed were the main leak, but I was wrong. Still leaks. Please help me troubleshoot this problem.

I have a 1998 Ford WIndstar. It died on us the other day. we put a refurbished alternator in it, changed the clamps that attach to the top of the battery, when the battery is in OUR van and is charged, it will hold the charge running for 1-2 minutes, then the radio goes off, the RPM goes to 0 and then it dings a couple times, then it dies. However, when the battery was in my friends truck it ran it just fine. so its not the battery. we are pretty much stumped. anyone have any ideas? I would grea
