Check the rear main seal and the valve cover gaskets.

SOURCE: Ford Ranger 2.5 TD XLT,

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

SOURCE: 2002 Ford Escape V6. Oil indicator light on, but pressure holds.

My 2002 Ford Escape had exactly the same problem as described. Dealer replace oil pressure sending unit (oil pressure switch) and problem still existed while leaving dealer about 3 miles away. I took the car back to the dealer again in two days and the oil pressure light kept of blinking sporatically all the way to the dealer. Dealer checked connections and they drove the car around and the oil pressure light never came on. I picked the car up from the dealer and I've had no problems with the oil pressure light flashing. I wonder if there is a microprocesser in the oil pressure sending unit which has to be given some time to be recalibrated to the cars main computer module?

SOURCE: Oil leak around #1 spark plug of 2002 Ford Escape

Sounds like valve cover gasket is leaking. It leaks down side of engine onto everything in it's path. Stop by a local parts store and have them take a peak, they'll be glad to help you out.

I'm russian. I've got Ford Escape XLT 2005 v6 3.0 and I can't find engine sequence/engine number/or product sequence number on the engine. Please, help me to find it.


we have the same problem here in spain with american built vehicles ,When i come to do the paperwork and their is no engine number and the spanish authorities insist on numbers on everything and three copies of it all with stamps on.So when i get a crysler gran voyager or ford mercury with no chassis number stamped in the actual chassis ,just a silly plate in the dash which means nothing here .I do a bit of doctoring before the vehicle goes for its mechanical inspection and they evan measure it for height and width and length and they look for the stamped chassis number which on all american vehicles i take to the test and they are always in the same place .Drivers side on top of suspension ,and engine number stamped on a nice area of the block,thats accessable ,if no engine number exists then use the last 6 numbers of the chassis number .----know what i mean

Engine misfiring


It could be you have a bad distributor ar bad spark plugs. It is also a possibility that the cars computer was programmed wrongly. Either way I would suggest going to a Ford Repair shop and having them run a systems check on the computer to properly diagnose what is happening.
