I would suggest the front crankshaft seal, this is a common area to leak on this 4 cylinder engine.

My oil is black and smells like gas. i want to change my oil because it scares me but i dont know what type of oil to use for my truck.it is a 1987 xlt ford ranger truck with a 2.9 l.engine from a 1988...


a lot of stuff to fix here
oil: with the truck running hot, I would use a heavy oil, like 10-40
trans: where is the leak? If pan, tighten bolts. seals are much harder repair
water leak: possibly a freeze plug. Maybe you should pull the tranny and fix the water leak and the trans seal at the same time (if the seal is bad)
overheating: maybe just caused by the leak. Hard to tell until the leak is fixed. Might want to check the radiator for sludge and back flush if dirty.
hard sound: probably loose flange seal at exhaust manifold. check hole exhaust pipe to locate leak. If not along pipe, unbolt the flange and put in a new gasket.
engine problems: is the engine light on? If yes, have the truck scanned for trouble code and report them back to us. Autozone does free scans.

Check your operator's manual. Make sure any and all fuses that have anything to do with the affected items are not blown and are working properly. If you can; check for loose fuse connections or wires. Hope this helps. God bless!
