Fluid leaking problems!!!

ok first off i have two leaks so bare with me.

first leak is comeing from my tranny pan. now it was leaking before and i replaced the gasket and filter (since i was in there). for the first couple of days there was no leak and now it is leaking like it was before from all over and i cant pin point a certain source.

now from that leak i have a little spot on the driveway from the fluid and yesterday i notice that it was larger than normal so i crawled under for a look and noticed that the dust cover for the tranny was wet and the oil pan had oil all over the back side. so i took off the dust cover fearing that it might be the main bearing seal. but i discovered that it wasnt and that the rear right side of the pan seemed to be leaking.

so once its warmer out cause i do not have a garage i was going to hit everything with cleaner and try to find the sources.

all of that being said does anybody have any ideas on how i can repair these leaks and if i have to change the oil pan seal has anyone ever changed it with the engine still in the truck?

anyhelp would be appreciated cause im at the point of getting rid of the truck as much stuff that seems to be goin wrong.

Unfortunately there isn't a way to pull the oil pan while the engine is in the truck. Are you positive it's coming from the pan or is it dripping down from the top of the engine? Check your engine valley and turbo area it is very common to leak from there. As far as the tranny pan did you use the correct torqing sequence?

Yea im not sure. it doesnt look to be leaking or running down from the top side of the engine more from the seal of the oil pan. there is some oil residue in the valley of the engine but not enough to poor down to the oil pan.

as for the tranny pan im lost i cant figure out any more with it besides replacing it and seeing what that does.

I have had to replace all of my orings on the fuel and oil lines on my early 99. dont forget the screw on the back of the resevoir also... it has an oring. You are better to go to ford for these. They are vitran orings.. not standard rubber ones. Some people use the regular ones and say they dont have a prob... I have not had much luck with them though. Your call.... vitran ones are quite expensive!
