Enginge oil leak, '03 Ford Escape v6

I have a small oil leak coming from high up on the right bank of the enging above the where the header pipes merge. Can't see up there but it could be the valve cover, timing cover or head seapage. Any ideas?

03 ford escape idles at 1200rpm. cleaned iac replaced bank 2 sensor 1 o2 sensor vacuum lines plugs and intake gaskets cleaned tb iac . runs great 187,400. rpms drop to 850 when ac on. fluids good.

High idle is most often caused by an engine vacuum leak, use a can of carburetor spray and spray it around the intake manifolds (upper and lower), if there is a leak you will hear a change in the idle speed

Oil leak coming from front right side of engine in 2003 ford escape v6

Suggest a blanket and a really good flashlight, maybe some spray "brake-clean".
Find a way to get your car up in the air so you can see where the oil is coming from. I sometimes drive one side of the car onto a tall curb to give me ground clearance.
Crawl underneath.
Look for the leak.
I think a valve cover gasket or a leaking oil pressure sending unit is more likely than the front seal.
Being super careful not to spray your eyes, the spray "brake clean" is used to clean the area around the leak so you can see it better.
You can fix either of these two items yourself.
Be Blessed.

I have a 2001 ford escape..3.0 v6. I have been finding small oil spots on my driveway from underneath my escape. I can't seem to find the leak. I'm hoping the seal on my oil plug is the problem because I...

It may be coming from the top of the engine and dripping down. I'm assuming you inspected under the vehicle and ruled out a leak around the oil pan gasket and front/rear seals. Check the valve cover gaskets for possible signs of leakage. It is really hard to pin point where the oil is coming from via chat without actually looking at the engine itself.

My check enging light is on and when I check codes I get lean bank 1 & 2. The truck is a 2000 Ford Ranger with the V6 and auto 2W drive.

chack ALL the vacum lines on the engine.they are notorious for becoming oil soaked and leaking.if you have a vacum leak it will cause the engine to run lean.

Oil in exhaust pipe, dripping from the mesh section just pass the header pipe where it connects to the tail pipe. Did a Compression Test. All Cyl. read 120 and no oil on plugs. Where could the oil be...

Ok, check the head gaskets for damage and the valve cover gaskets as well. replace any gaskets that are visibly worn. check the oil pressure switch as well. this is a leak spot.

Yes, most cars and trucks have 3 cats when they are V6's or V8's. Yoy have one cat on each header bank and then right after the two headers become one there's one more.

Good luck
