SOURCE: Oil and Coolant leak

The passenger right side of the car doesn't have any flanges for cooling system, if that's correct then your radiator has a leak or puncture.

The driver side of vehicle has both the in and out flanges for the radiator. Very common to see leak at the drain valve leaking (not closed tightly). In the same area would be bottom flange of radiator which the composite flange is degrading and causing the leak.

The middle part of the bottom engine compartment is where your oil/coolant cooler assembly just above the oil filter. A loose oil filter could be the cause 95% of the time and 5% would be a bad o-ring from the oil cooler to the oil filter flange.

SOURCE: Oil leak, 5 quarts in 75 miles. Somewhere to the rear of the filter, filter OK

Hello thundergod: My name is Roger and I will answer your question.Their is a oil pressure switch located to the rear of the oil filter. Should have a shield over the terminal. When this switch ruptures you will have a large oil leak. If you unplug the switch and start the engine you will see the switch leak. If you have a gauge it is called a sender unit. If you have a light on the dash it is called a pressure switch. Please rate the quality of this answer as this is how we know you received the right answer. Thank You for using FixYa.Roger

SOURCE: Why would my 2004 freestar allof a sudden start

Start by pulling the spark plugs and inspect them for evidence of oil burning. They will be particularly black and some may even be oily. Finding several oily plugs is better than finding one. Also stop to run your finger in the end of the tail pipe, black sooty is normal, black oily is not.

If you have several plugs that are oily, you may have a valve seal oil leak issue. This is can be an expensive repair depending on how it is done. Most shops will remove the heads and work them on a bench. These can be done on the vehicle with the right procedures.

If you have only one that is oily you may have a broken oil ring in one cylinder. This will require complete disassembly of the motor to verify the broken ring. At this point you are basically rebuilding the motor.

My 2004 ford freestar runs well but is leaking about a quart of oil a week almost


If it's leaking from inside the engine then it would be coming from the valve cover. The cover gasket seal is no longer sealing properly. If oil is leaking down under the car then check around the oil pan, could be gasket or rear main oil seal or front oil seal.
