Question about 1996 Ford Windstar
I have a oil leak coming from behind the oil filter mount on a 3.8Ltr. eng. in a 96 windstar. It is not the oil sending switch. The leak is below. There is a steady stream while coming out while the vehicle is running.
Check oil filter, sometimes gasket from old filter is still on engine and when tou have 2 gaskets, (the old one and new one on new filter) it will hemmorage out oil pretty quick. next time check to see if gasket is on old filter when it is removed. I found that out after $30 worth of Mobil 1 poured out on my driveway.
