It is easy to tell the difference between water and oil
if it is water ,it can be hose , radiator, water pump seal or the like
if it is oil ( red oil ) is the transmission oil cooler lines , or black oil crank shaft seals or oil filter leaks
check the coolant level , take it to an accredited radiator shop and confirm if oil or water

97 ford f-250 7.5L orange goo coming out of a round indent near oil pan. the the round indent appears to be on the engine block toward the front of the truck to the left of the oil pan. I have been having...


What you are describing sounds like what's called a freeze-plug. These are round plugs or inserts in the engine that are designed to pop out if the coolant should freeze to avoid cracking the block. the orange goo is rust mixed with coolant. This indicates that the freeze plug is leaking coolant and should be replaced (not a major job).

Actully i think if there is leakage in head gasket oil should come out from it..is it rite?


if there is a leak in the valve cover oil would leak out . if there is a leak in head gasket could mix coolant and oil no leak out the mix would be in crank case, or pressure would build up in radiator whit no mix whatsoever. is this helping? if so please check the corner of this box if you need more info let me know exactly what the matter is i'll be glad to help.

My 2003 ford taurus has oil pan gasket leak just


All you have to do is get under the car with a 1/2" drive ratchet, 3" extension, an extension swivel, and the socket for the bolts on the oil pan. Go through all the bolts and tighten them all up. You will be surprised at how loose some of them are.

Can you replace an oil pan gasket on a 1995 Ford F150 4.9L V6 by just removing the bolts and resting it on the crossmember? I have an oil pan leak with the gasket pushed out just below the oil filter. Also...


my opinion is to do an oil change while you are at it to save some stress. draining the old oil will help from having to hold the pan full of oil and tipping it over, etc. then simply take off the bolts, which should be anywhere from8-12 or so. make sure you clean both sides of the pan. the lip and the side thats on the block. place the new gasket on the pan and put four nuts [corners are best] finger tight. then insert the rest of the bolts and make sure you dont over torque!!!

Ford F150 oil leaK AFTER INSTALLING OIL PUMP


I would check first to see where the leak is, make sure the pan bolts are tight & if it still leaks, it should be resealed, with new oil pan gasket set. Hope this helps, Rick

Coolant leaking from underneath car near oil pan.


THIS IS STRANGE, BECAUSE THE NEXT PAN BEHIND THE OIL PAN IS THE TRANSMISSION PAN. UNLESS MECURY HAS DEVELOPED SOME STRANGE SYSTEM THERE SHOULD BE NO WATER OR COOLANT ANYWHERE IN THAT LOCATION? IF THE PLASTIC PLUG IS LEAKING IT CAN BE FIXED BY REMOVING IT AND WRAPPING THE THREAD WITH TEFLON TAPE AND RE-INSERTING IT AND TIGHTEN IT. IT THE PAN ITSELF IS LEAKING, THERE ARE ONLY TWO THINGS HERE. ONE, YOU CAN RE-TIGHTEN THE BOLTS TO SEE IF THEY ARE LOOSE AND SEE IT THIS STOPS THE LEAKING. OR, IF THE LEAKING DOESN'T STOP, YOU NEED TO REPLACE THE PAN GASKET WITH A NEW ONE AND REFILL THE TRANSMISSION WITH NEW OIL. YOU MIGHT AS WELL CHANGE THE FILTER WHEN YOU HAVE THE PAN OFF, BECAUSE IT IS PROBABLY OVERDUE. I THINK YOU WILL FIND THIS LEAK IS A STICKY RED FLUID CALLED ATF OR AUTOMATIC TRANS. FLUID. THAT WILL NEED TO BE REPLACED. NEW FILTER, NEW GASKET RETORQUE THE BOLTS, IMPORTANT, DON'T WANT THAT THING FALLING OFF, NEW FLUID, YOUR BABY SHOULD PURR AND NOT WIZ ON THE FLOOR ANYMORE. NOT SURE HOW TO DO ALL THIS? BEAT FEET TO THE NEAREST PARTS STORE AND BUY OR ORDER THE CHILTON OR HAYNES MANUAL FOR 93GRAND MARQUIS AND YOU WILL HAVE PICTURES AND STORIES YOU WON'T BELIEVE! CAN'T GO WRONG! GOOD LUCK!
