I have a recently purchased 1996 Ford F250 PSD with a few leaks. I knew there were leaks before I bought it after doing a thorough inspection, so no surprises here. The plan is to fix them myself as long as they're not in impossible places to get to. One of the leaks is coming from the piece (don't know the exact name) that houses the oil dip stick that screws right onto the side of the oil pan itself. At least with this leak, I have a pretty good idea where it's coming from and how to fix it.
Another leak that I have seems to be coming from the front diff. I've only used 4wd a few days ago, but there is still fluid leaking. The fluid is of a greenish color. The pic doesn't do it justice, but it appears to be coming from where the assembly actually goes into the diff on the right side.
What's the best way to go about stopping this leak? It's not terrible, but I would prefer to have as few leaks possible.
I also have a fuel leak. It is dripping off the starter, but as far as I know, the starter doesn't use any fuel and wouldn't be leaking itself. I believe the fuel is just dripping down and happens to be hitting the starter. This leak only occurs after the truck has been driven. The other night I cleaned it all completely and the truck sat yesterday without running. There was no dripping at all after I cleaned it until I drove it today.
There is also fuel leaking from the pan near the starter. (The first pic doesn't really show this because it started dripping later). I'm guessing this fuel is the same fuel that's dripping near the starter. It appears it's running down, collecting on the pan, and dripping down from there. There's a decent size puddle of fuel from it. The oil puddles are about 1/4 to 1/2 the size at most of this one.
Where could this fuel be coming from and what should I look for? I know the valley on top the last time I checked a few days ago was fairly dry. Any thoughts?
