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.

How to replace the thermostat ford freestar


The only thing I can add is that first drain (into a container) the radiator of at least a couple quarts. Otherwise you will end up with a real nice mess on your floor. And, coolent/water stinks when it burns off on the engine and exhaust. Plus the mix is extremely poisionous to animals. The radiator drain cock is on the bottom.

Leaking oil Ford Freestar-was halfway between two lines on dipstick when I checked last week-puddle this evening and am down just past the bottom line-put in a quart but am worried to drive the car to


well it could be several things like pan plug seal cracked, oil pan leaking, rear main seal bad, front engine seal bad, head bolts not properly torqued, head could be cracked, but I would start with the oil pan drain plug seal and work from there.

2003 F150 4.6 w/ 90K miles using a quart of oil every 3 weeks. what's most likely cause?


A V8 engine will start to consume more oil as they get more and more
miles on them. The valve stem seals and piston rings wear, and let
more and more oil burn off in the exhaust. How many miles are you
travelling in said 3 weeks?
