bum deal man. check out the hpop orings, and turbo pedistal orings. look in the valley of the motor and i gaurantee you will see oil there. in the back of the motor there is a weep hole, and after it puddles up in the valley it leaks from that weep hole down the back making it look like a rear main. orings are around $30 from ford and only take an hour to do. good luck. keep us posted

Yup, Rear main Seals almost never go on these trucks....Most likely a leak somewhere else thats draining out the back...Clean out the valley good and try to locate the leak.

Yup, most likely the o rings. Clean up the valley, and then run the engine and try to locate the leak.

Yeah, sorry to dissappoint...not the hpop or pedestal. I inspected the truck for all of that a few months ago when I scanned the forums for leaking 95's.

At the time I found some bad fuel leaks though.

Right now the valley is completly dry. There is oil dripping from the middle of the truck, right in between the oil pan, and the transmission. All of the mechanics say it is the rear main, but now why is it still leaking???

One mechanic told me that older engines build more pressure and I will probably not be able to fix the leak!!!

Anyway...any other suggestions?

Aaron

Thumbs up fix psd

there is stuff you can pour in your oil,its like a dye and it will show you all your leak spots.
are you sure the turbo is not leaking.did you feel under it.could it be oil pan seal.there is plugs on the other side of flex plate.i think that dye would work.i think you can get it at the
hydraulic shop
