oil leak

2003 Ford F250 7.3L 4x4. It has oil leaking out between the oil pan and front timing cover. What is the easiest way to fix it. I really need help with this.

If its leaking from the pan than you'll have to pull the motor in order to replace the pan gasket.

You should post this in the OBS forums.
Are you positive that is where the leak originates?
Trace the oil leak as high up as you can. Look in the valley of the engine, is there oil in there?

If its the pan gasket i have a trick u can try but give no garuntees but deffinately worth a shot get a tube of rubberized silicone from internatonal drain the oil out of the pan clean the area where the leak is with some carb cleaner wipe it dry and apply some silicone to the area where its leaking and take a shop vac and apply a little vaccuum to the drain hole give it some dry time refil with oil and check for leaks

yea it definitely coming from the oil pan but it only leaks when its running. it sounds like the only way to fix it is to pull the motor or lower the pan a little and but some silicone and hope for the best. the truck had 3 leaks when i started on it, the hpop o rings and the oil filter so now i only have this one. It must have been leaking for a while cause the whole bottom of the truck is was covered starting from the front of the truck.
