SOURCE: '97 Ford Escort leaking auto transmission fluid.

The front seal could be replaced, and not have a problem. If you have a shop other than a transmission shop do the repairs, make sure the torque converter hub is inspected to make certain its not scratched/scorn. If the trans shifts properly and the fluid is not burned or smells burned, this would be an easy repair. If the trans fluid smells burned, and hasn't been serviced regularly, the rebuild would be the way to go. Also, ask what the warranty for any and all repair are on your vehicle. Normal warranty is 1yr, 12.000 miles in the automotive business.

SOURCE: 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.

This sounds like the crank seal, the engine doesnt have to be removed, in order to get to seal is like replacing the ttiming belt, and once in the timing belt i would replace the crank and cam seals, also do the timing belt, and maybe the waterpump, you will need to remove the crank pulley and then the timing covers then align timing marks for timing belt before ou remove it, with timing belt off the crank pulley then slides off the crankshaft and the seal is behind it, the cam shaft gear unbolts and the seal is behind the gear, once the gears are off then you will be able to remove the seals from the engine,heres a few diagrams to help. good luck and i hope this is helpful,60d826b.gifca916fa.gifcb2cb5a.gif

2001 ford taurus Have a constant leak oil light has been on for weeks 3 days ago car would not turn on went to auto advance to get the battery check; replace battery car still shut off, permenantly f


There are some simple kits which have a glowing fluid which can be seen with a UV ultraviolet light supplied in the kit.

You add the glowing liquid to the engine, run the motor, and inspect the drips for the leak location. Then you fix that bad part.

Now sometimes the sending units do leak. But any gasket or seal can leak just as well.

Do not run the engine with the oil light on. Check your oil level constantly. No oil=no engine.

Can not speculate on battery problem from info provided.

We have a 2005 ford torus and the ac will not work and the ac clutch is making a really bad grinding noise what could the problem be and how would i fix it.


With the engine off, look with a bright light at the pulley and clutch on the compressor. If it is oily it will have road grit in it. Try spraying it good with brake cleaner, getting as much of the oil and grit off as you can. Let it dry for a minute or two, then start engine and turn the A/C on. If it works now, and the oil doesn't come back should be fine. Look at the power steering pump for leaks dripping on the compressor. If it is leaking, replace the seals or the pump. If it is not leaking and the oil and grinding comes back at the clutch, it may be the front shaft seal and pulley bearing on the compressor. If that is the case you will have to replace the compressor. Not an easy task, at all!
Cost? 3 to 5 hundred for parts, and 150 to 200 for labor.

1993 Toyota Celica GT oil leak from front of engine block


The most common cause of all oil leaks is the valve cover gasket. The oil drips down from there and covers everything. If your valve cover is leaking, replace it first.

Then the second most common leak in the front of the engine is the crankshaft seal. This seal should have been replaced when the timing belt is replaced as you have everything removed to get to it, and the seal is easy to replace. However if it is not replaced at that time then you will have to remove everything again to access it. The seal is 3 or four dollars, but the labor is two to three hours and you should replace the timing belt, idler pulleys, tensioner and water pump when you are in there, as that will all be removed. Hope this help. Good luck :O)

What is the procedure for replacing the front and real main seals on a 1993 Taurus SHO auto?


This is fairly involved, essentially easiest to pull the engine. But you will need to get to BOTH ends of your crankshaft to reseal. BE CERTAIN that both are leaking as ANY leaks manifest as rear main seal leaks....because of gravity and air currents of your car.

Check for a front crankshaft seal failure.
you might be able to use a "sealer" like JB makes or, use a "sneaky pete"
to replace the seal. an autoparts store will have these.

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.

Leaking anti-freeze and the car smokes


Sounds like a blown head gasket. Look to see if your oil looks like toffee, or if you have steam coming from your tail pipe when the engine is at normal temperature or if you have a misfire. If you buy a tin of radiator sealing crystals you can cut the water consumption down and they will sometimes temporarily seal a leaking head gasket. At least it will give you time to get it sorted properly.

Make sure when you put the filter on that there's not a piece of an old gasket sitting there. That will prevent the new gasket from sealing.

R & r info. on front seal and crankshaft seal. Car is leaking lots of oil up to two quarts per day


Front crank shaft oil seal is located behind the crank shaft pulley (A.K.A. the harmonic balancer). If you look from under the car at the bottom pulley on the engine. It will be very wet and oily. This is not an easy job to replace the seal for the inexperienced.
