Don`t be afraid of this,take the car to a shop you can trust and ask them to find the oil leak,it has to be a oil leak the problem on your car.

    Talked to mechanic today, no oil in exhaust pipe; not smoking; says stop using synthetic oil; and possible gaskets around spark plugs are shot

Ok I have a 2005 tribute and I always run


This car has a catalytic converter, you can't see the smoke of the burned oil with it, it's cleaned. The oil could get in the plugs cavity only if there's a leak at the valve cover. My guess is that the oil seeps out only when there's pressure - the engine is running. To find where it leaks clean your engine thoroughly the start the engine in your driveway for an hour - where the oil will leak you clearly see it. In that case replace the corresponding seal.

Bad oil leak near front. Mechanic now says the leak is from where the engine was glued together in factory? Ever heard of a motor in the tribute being glued together?


The car companies now use special high-strength uv light cured adhesives on aluminum engine to crankcase seals. What he meant is you need a new
front crankshaft seal.

Oil is leaking from a grill on the bottom of the engine, what is this?


I drive a '02 tribute, basically the same as your Escape. My mechanic said the gasget around the oil pan does not seal well on these alluminium oil pans. He ordered, from Mazda a kit that included a new pan, gasget, bolts and pan plug for just over 100.00. So inexpensive the mechanic thinks this is the manufacturer's way of acknowledging that the original pan was poorly designed.
hope this helps
