More than likely your torque converter. best way to find out is to clean everything off, let me say this so there is no confusion. CLEAN EVERTHING OFF! get some carborator cleaner or something like it ie break cleaner and really clean everthing. get it all new looking. then you can look for blown out seals at the same time. Once it is clean and you don't see any leaks just wait. You may need to put some papers under the car and wait to see where the leak is coming from. Also, if you havent done this make sure the transmission is full, make sure the leak is made up of red fluid. Also no Fords use Transmission fluid in the Power Steering. Check all of this out also. If it uses transmission fluid, check your rack and pinion to see if it is leaking. Fords as much as I love them are famous for blowing rack and pinion, and power stearing lines.

hope this helps.

1992 ford f150 302 engine. Oil is leaking in to air filter which means it is coming from the air intake from the engine. Air filter is soaked and dripping to the ground. Any ideas on what is might be??

It is more likely that the oil is coming into the air cleaner by way of the CrankCase Vent.
There should be a tube that goes from one of the Valve Covers directly to the Air Cleaner.

Inside the AirCleaner Housing, there is the Air Filter, but there should also be a much smaller filter, sort of held in a little box, where the tube from the valve cover comes in.

This condition usually manifests when the vehicle has very high miles. It is caused by excessive BlowBy in the cylinders to the CrankCase. It will help to Change the Positive CrankCase Ventilation Valve. If it is plugged, it will make the situation worse. So, get a new PVC valve, and that is about all you can do, except to keep the air cleaner new, and the oil topped off.

Heat will not switch from defrost. Changing positions on control valve has no effect

Look for a vacuum leak, broken or dislodged hose. Your system is designed to fail in the defrost position.

Transmission trouble

Check your fluid when the truck is running. Is it low? If it is not low then check for a burnt smell? If not check to see what color it is. It should be as red as cherry juice not a dark or even regular red. Change it out and that should solve your problem. If that still doesn't solve your problem which it should then you are going to need some new valve bodys.

Heat only blows thru defroster ,nothing to floor.Is the valve cable or vacuum and where/ 1992 Ford F150

you have a vacuum leak to the heater control head. It has defaulted to defrost to keep the windshield clear. (It's a requirement).
Check the vacuum hose from the engine intake manifold through the dash panel and into the truck to the control head.
Also, check the vacuum storage canister under the hood for a leak. Some are plastic balls, some are metal cans. You will find a tee in the vacuum line with a check valve where it splits off.
