If it in fact it is the main seal you should see tranny fluid leak at the point where the engine bolts to the transmission. With car in park and brake on, start engine and carefully look under to see where the fluid is coming from. If you see no fluid leakage, place the front end (this assumes front wheel drive only) on jacks stands and block the back wheels. Have a friend start the car and with their foot on the brake place the car in drive and SLOWLY remove their foot from the brake and allow the front tires to spin (DO NOT REV ENGINE) watch for leakage as wheels turn. If you see leakage at the engine/tranny mating surfaces then yes I expect it would be your main seal. I'd take avery good look at tranny cooling lines to and from the radiator, if these leak it is very heavy.

I hope this may have assited you,
Tom

How do I change oil pan gasget


Jack up truck for safety sake put jack stands under frame . remove all engine oil remove all bolts holding oil pan on if their is not enough room to drop pan you may have to remove bolts holding motor mounts and jack up engine. if front end linkage is still in the way remove linkage. pull oil pan out. check gasket that was between block and oil pan if any stuck to block of engine remove with gasket scraper or wire brush or wire wheel on drill.make sure mating surface is clean put new gasket on new oil pan I like to use a high temp sealer on gasket both sides. Put pan with gasket back in place of old oil pan and tighten all bolts. jack engine down ,replace moter mount bolts replace any linkage you took apart. and dont forget to replace engine oil. make sure oil plug is in pan before pouring oil in . before starting engine check that no oil is leaking than start engine and check for any leaks again if all is good your done. if this was helpful please leave good feed back. A good temp fix on a rusted oil pan is JB weld make sure no oil is on pan clean with towel and rubbing alchol .you may have to drain oil first. if it is rusted badly you may have to use a wire brush on a drill to clean the area to patch. if patched properly it may last for years.

How to get oil pan gasget out 1993 ford f150


That is a fun one. you have to remove the exhaust after the manifolds (or at least unbolt and move out of the way). Then remove the bolts to the engine mounts and transmission mount and raise the engine as high as it will go without breaking jamming anything against the firewall.

Oil is leaking from a grill on the bottom of the engine, what is this?


I drive a '02 tribute, basically the same as your Escape. My mechanic said the gasget around the oil pan does not seal well on these alluminium oil pans. He ordered, from Mazda a kit that included a new pan, gasget, bolts and pan plug for just over 100.00. So inexpensive the mechanic thinks this is the manufacturer's way of acknowledging that the original pan was poorly designed.
hope this helps
