    the car drives ok and does not overheat but i put 4 lires of oil in yesterday just made it home and now oil is empty

    while parked for 30mins there was a pool of oil of about 500mls

  • hopperoo Nov 09, 2012

    oil leak appears to be from a split in the sump gasket which is visible the oil spurts out when engine is started looks like a new vehicle as i gather its a $650 job to change the gasket

Have the engine pressure washed, then drive it for about 10 miles and check the source of the leak. Drive at low speeds so air flow doesn't blow the oil all over and make it harder to see area of leakage.

Will a auto transmission cooler from a ED falcon fit an EF falcon

If it is in the radiator it should as the fittings are the only problem you are likely to encounter. If you are wondering if the cooling capability is affected consider this . Hot tranny oil has to be cooled in the radiator water and this heat makes the radiaror work hard.Why don"t you consider a external cooler. They keep the oil cooler as they are are running in the outside air. Ie air temp 30 deg C oil temp 150c+ water temp 85degC oil temp 150c. You can see that the tranny oil looses more heat and it will not overload the radiator capability

My car is blowing smoke and shuddering ef falcon

What color is the smoke ? is it bluish or is it white ?
The blue colored smoke would smell more like burning oil, which would indicate a broken piston ring, ect. the white smoke if it smells of coolant(anti-freeze) would lean toward a head gasket problem.

Oil leaking from thread of oil sensor on ef falcon.

Possibly,the sealant used should be the white teflon that comes in tape form or as a liquid in a small squeeze bottle.The liquid form,you would want the threads free of oil,the teflon tape,oil present doesn't matter,although the tape should be applied to the threads in the opposite direction of the threads.The threads would screw into the block clockwise,so apply the tape from the counter clockwise direction.It is also possible that the sending unit itself has a small crack somewhere,and these sending units aren't all that expensive,so i would install a new unit while using the teflon.

Oil leak coming from around water pump?

Oil travels when it leaks, the most common cause is the cam chain tensioner to the right side of the engine at about the same level as the water pump. You have to remove the bracket holding the power steering pump to gain access. A new seal is required there. Be careful not to undo the entire tensioner, this is spring loaded. Just remove the 13 mm bolt from the centre.

Firing order for a 1996 EF ford falcon

EF & EL are 1,5,3,6,2,4
EF has a coil pack under the inlet manifold the EL has a distributor
EF uses a waste spark system so 2 plugs are fired at the same time eg 1 & 6 - 2 & 5 - 3 & 4
