You really need an inspection pit as the car needs to be level. Unscrew filler cap from front face of gearbox ( carefull though as there is a blanking cap as well and it is the one furthest from engine) The oil level should be between 5mm and 10mm below bottom edge of filler plug)

Bright Red. If you have a low engine oil light, when the engine gets 1 quart low or more, the light will come on to let you know you need oil. But if the oil pressure light come on, you better shut the engine down, or the engine will lock up, this is bad news. Depending on how much mileage you drive a week, the oil should be checked one a week. I hope this has been of help to you. Good Luck.
Do you mean the oil pan on the underside of the engine?
If you do, then the only real fix is fit a new one. The oil pan may be able to be changed with the car on a lift or over a pit. Pop into a local friendly garage and see what they say.
what is Y or 52 or whatever ----please state year ,anyway use the cheapest oil you can buy from supermarket for a diesel/petrol synthetic or natural ,viscosity ¿¿ well 20/50 10/40 is plenty good enough and change the oil every 6000miles and the oil filter every third oil change and this little kent engined ford which is unchanged since the ford anglia 1962 first used this engine and it will run forever ,and yes you can mix the oil if your just topping up.I remember working in the factory 40 yrs ago building these engines at 3 engines a minute on the assembly and in them days we used shell rotella oil and it went in every type of engine from the dorset diesel (D series) to the transit V engine and the york 2.4 diesel to the zodiac V6 3 litre ,now their was a nice car if you can one .
if you want one from ford you have to go to your local ford dealership and order one in the parts department you can also try downloading one for your car try www.edmunds.com to see if you can if it was me i would go to your local napa and they be able to tell you how much oil and the type you will need wish you the best of luck Michigan Man.
Could be the crank oil seal, behind the flywheel, leaking oil onto the clutch assembly. Check oil level and look under the engine for oil droplets on the engine/gearbox joint or the underpan and crossmembers.
You need to look on under side of spoiler, and match studs. (two way threaded bolts) to the wholes. after that mark where the stud wholes need to go through the trunk then drill wholes a 16th bigger than the studs. After drilling wholes through the trunk get sillicone sealer around wholes. Install spoiler and install bolts on the underside of your trunk.
