My suggestion would be to power wash the engine off and let it dry then run it this will help you isolate where the leak is originating from

I am having alot of oil leakage from my 1995 ford thunderbird V8 i believe it is a 302

A rear seal is a big job. Best way to confirm is to clean it up real well and see if you can track down the leak.

2002 ford explorer using lots of oil no visable leaks

If you are adding oil, and it is not leaking externally, it has to be burning it out the exhaust pipe.

2003 ford f 150 5.4 v8 leaking oil from top of motor on left rear side drips on starter cannot see where its coming from

clean it off & inspect for a valve cover gasket leak, a head gasket is possible but unlikely. Use a flashlight & an adjustable inspection mirror (don't buy the cheap small one) to observe for the leak. if that fails you, then go to the local parts store & buy some Brake Cleaner, Florescent Oil Leak detector additive, and a lamp kit for UV dye diagnosis. use the Brake cleaner on all suspect/dirty surfaces, place additive in the engine oil, start engine turn on light & place glass'es on face, look for leak, ID & repair,, recheck work

1996 ford f150 4x4 v8, has small hole in oil pan

An old easy "back yard" solution for this is drain the oil pan/pull it off is easily removed, and use a propane torch and coat hanger to "braisse" the hole. You can use "JB Weld" (sold at any auto parts store and wal-mart) to temporarily plug the hole, but it won't hold too long, may be as short as two weeks, may hold 2 years, it's unpredictable
