94.5 oil leak???

Hey all.....Here is the deal. Gotta 94.5 7.3L Powerstroke with 204,000 on it.
There was some oil leaking...... from what i can tell it was the oil pan as there was oil on it and the leak was pretty much underneath the pan on the ground. Used the 4X4 about three weeks ago in the snow. Now there seems to be more of a oil ?? leak....or some kinda fluid but also a strong gas smell to boot. Wasn't like this before i used the 4X4. Any ideas or what to look at???

Thanks for the help

Chances are your leak is coming from the top of the engine. Sounds like you may have a fuel leak to. Most likely a the lift pump, Look down behind the fuel filter housing with a light to see if it i wet in the valley.

I'll check behind the filter for the fuel. What are the signs if the oil leak is coming form the top of the engine??? And where from on the top???

I just fixed a similar oil leak on my truck. I thought it was leaking from the top of the engine because I also had the fuel smell. The oil leak didn't make since to me because it only leaked when the truck was running. After I looked around up top and couldn't locate the leak I looked more carefully under the truck. It turns out the part that hold the dipstick tube which screws into the oil pan was leaking where it swivels so the part can be tightened. It was very loose when I first checked so I tightened it down. It lasted about 2 months and I notice the leak again and noticed the part was leaking now instead of the seal between the part and the oil pan. The only place I could find the part was at the ford dealer. I figure it would be an expensive part but it was only $17 and some change. I asked the parts guy at the dealer if this was a common problem and he told me they replace one every 2-3 months. Hope this helps.
