Only a trusted local auto service shop or dealer can answer this for you because your vehicle would have to be up on a lift to actually see what's leaking in order to properly diagnose and repair. It may be as simple as changing the oil pan gasket or a cracked oil pan that would have to be either replaced or repaired depending on the size of the crack. There is also the remote chance that its actually something else that's leaking. Hope this helps.
There are 2 oil pumps. One standard oil pump mounted extrernally and another which is a high pressure oil pump located inside the oil pan. go to this link, plug your info in and download the manual for a visual diagram. https://www.fleet.ford.com/maintenance/owner-manuals/
Have the engine steam cleaned (watch any electronics) Run the engine & start looking from the top, down. It may be a bad valve cover leak from the rear of the cover or ck the front & rear seals. (cracked head, block etc. It could be many places
The cost of this will vary from place to place, but if your doing it yourself then thats going to save you a bit of cost. From what I've seen an average cost of a second hand oil sump(Pan) was $ 130 - $ 200 USD. This should only take and 1 - 1.5 hours to do. The cost to have a workshop replace it will depend on hourly rate of the workshop. There are also other cost of replacing the oil and a gasket for the oil pan. Hope this helps, let me know how you get on.
that has to be transmission fluid is the fluid that is leaking red ? coming from a tranny cooling line to the radiator. you motor oil is in your block and held in your oil pan. no where it can leak at that rate except thru the oil sending unit is gone ( missing ) hope2help shack
You'll need to raise the engine to replace the oil pan. Take the trans./converter loose, remove the engine mounts, wiring, fuel line, and anything else that could be a problem with raising the engine. You can use 2 6 x 6's and place under the engine mounts and rest the engine on these. This should provide you with room to drop the pan.
