Rear main and oil pan leaking?!?!
I have a 2002 7.3 and have had an oil leak for awhile. I recently had the rear main replaced which the mechanic said was leaking. It was leaking and he even showed me where the seal had failed. So after I brought it home, I noticed its still leaking about the same. The mechanic thinks that the oil pan is leaking.
When he replaced the rear main, he had to borrow the tool (since these seldom fail, he doesn't own one) from Ford. Turns out the tool was missing parts so he cobbled together what he needed to get it installed.
My question is, what is the likelihood that both the rear main and oil pan are puking? I think that the rear main just got messed up on install due to the tool not being compete. Anybody have any thoughts? The truck only has 1205xx miles on it.
