Yes you can do it in the car.The only thing that may hinder you is you have to remove the Y-pipe and the nuts on the studs may be extremely rusted,so make sure you soak them really good with PB Blaster or eqivalent before trying to take them loose.

Oil coming from bottom of 1996 ford contour. No leak from the motor


If you have recently had your oil changed,the oil filter may be loose or cross threaded.Also if you have had an oil change recently it could just be spilled oil. Make sure your oil filler cap is on tight and the dipstick is on tight. While you are at it check to see how much oil you have actually lost.If it`s not coming from the engine,i would inspect the oil pan gasket and the oil pan itself may have a hole in it.

Just changed the oil pan gasket in my 1996 ford windstar and its still leaking oil and there is oil all over the passenger side of my van ,where else can this leak be?


You have a front and rear main seal, if either of these are leaking the oil will be coming from the center of the engine above the oil pan. There are 2 1 in front and 1 in back of the engine.

My audi hit something and put a hole in the oil pan, i replaced the oil pan and oil and a guy say my main insert needs to be replace or swap the engine im wondering what is the main insert and should i...


he is probably saying that the main bearings are damaged from lack of lubrication. if you didnt shut down the engine right after the oil leak it doesnt take long to damage the engine. I would replace the engine in that case.

Need to know how much oil to use


Your van is going to take about 4.5 quarts.( If I remember correctly ) But always check the dipstick.
Since your motor have some high miles on it, I would use non-synthetic 10w-30 oil that has the high mileage formula.
Synthetic will cause leaks on an old engine because the molecules are smaller and will go through gaskets easily.
High mileage formula will help recondition the gaskets.
