Truthfully , wear and tear. rubber gaskets can not last forever, they are exposed to extreme conditions (weather) and naturally occur over time.
the leak can be premature if there's been a history of abuse, or neglect.
over filling the oil and even faulty parts causing the oil pressure to get too high can cause this.

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).

Where is the commen oil leak on a 97 ford taurus


Maybe, maybe not, It's most likely a bad rear seal or worn main bearings but check the oil filter just to be safe. Sometimes things go wrong when changing the oil filter that can cause similar symptoms.
1) old gasket left behind.
2) cross threaded filter.
3) loose filter.
4) damage gasket or defective new filter.
