How can I tell which v6 is in my 1983 ford ranger


As far as I know there was only one V6 engine offered on that vehicle in 1983 and that was a 2.8 liter V6. (There were a range of 4 cyl engines offered though).

A decode of the VIN on the vehicle should tell you which engine was fitted in the vehicle when new. (In a vehicle that old the original engine could have been replaced with something different).

Rear seal leaking on 2007 ford escape


In order to replace the rear main seal you will need some auto repair tools and experience . this is a big job , the transmission must be removed to replace this seal, also make sure that the seal is the leak,

oil always flows down, a leak on the top of the engine will flow down and drip at the center rear and look like a rear main seal , make sure that is the leak!!.

Depending on what engine you have and if it has 4 wheel drive the time for a shop to do is from 7 to 10 hours depending on engine size and 4wd,

My car has a worn out engine rear seal how can I replace it?


This is a fun one. You can do this 2 different ways. One of which, remove the transmission and flexplate (automatic trans.) or flywheel (manual trans.) and you can loosen the rear main cap and pull the old rear main seal out and install the new one. The other way of replacing it is removing the engine and replacing the seal on an engine stand. Either way, it'll take some time to do.

In a 83 MUSTANG GT the correct answer is BOTH. As a 5.0L and a TURBO CHARGED 4 cyinder were offered.


1983 Mustang GT
  • Engine:
    • 5.0L horsepower increased to 175 HP when 4V carb replaced 2V carb from 1982 (Holley 4180C series).
    • Exhaust system was revised (less restrictive).
    • 4-speed SROD was only transmission available until early December 1982. In December, new 5-speed T5 became standard GT transmission (4-speed remained on option list).
    • Block and crank were revised to accomodate a 1-piece rear main seal in December 1982.
    • The new "Turbo GT" with a turbo charged 4 cylinder engine was available beginning late in the model year - 145 HP and featured the same suspension and other features of the V8 Mustang GT.

Rear main seal oil leak on 3.0 v6 ford ranger/ qiuck fix??


You can do this at home, but you will need to remove the transmission to gain access to the rear main seal. The seals in the newer engines are a one piece seal, and the only way to replace them is to remove the tranny and the flywheel or flex plate to gain access to the retaining cover to the seal. A lot of work. But, if you can do it yourself you will save yourself lots of money. Labor to perform this repair will be high as it requires more time to assemble and disassemble than to actually replace the seal itself.
