anybody else have this

so ive been tracking down my nagging drip of oil and after 2 thourough cleanings of the valley and rear of block and they are bone dry.i have narrowed my oil leak down to what looks like by way of mirror my leak is coming from behind the tc.looks like the cover that is bolted on not the main seal because its wet on both side of the cover.anyone else have this leak?i couldn't find anything with my searches.

pull that cover and clean. from what i read, it is probably coming from pan. you might be able to tighten it but most say that ford left a bolt out that should be there

the only problem is you gotta pull the tranny.at least i would think so.its the one up on the back of block.i originaly thought the pan also but its wet up the back.its definitely not coming from up top though.its not a major leak just an annoying drip after it sits a while.

oil, tranny or fuel? The pedestal could be leaking oil. The oils' path is not consistant. It'll show up in the strangest places. Theres also 2-big oil galley plugs, one on each side, on the back of the heads, that can leak. Fuel also can leak from the p/s fuel line, that is clamped with a "P" clamp. Thats known to rub a hole/crack in the line. Tranny fluid if so, could be leaking from the drain plug on the TC.

Definitely oil.there is nothing coming from up top.both plugs dry.everything up top is dry.even top of bell housing.its gathering mostly on back corner of oil pan on drivers side and running down outside of inspection cover to weep hole and oil pan.only place its wet with oil is there.it doesn't lose much in 2000 miles is barely down on dipstick.less than half quart.not oil cooler or filter

yup, mine dripped thru the hole in the back of the trans where the clutch pivot block protrudes through and also around starter. Was oil from atop plus residual when i found the leak

adam...try tightening up that oil pan bolt in that corner. From what ive read, they do have a tendency of coming loose..

I checked mine also but the leak is still there. I think I need a new pan gasket.
