Great trip except leak!

Recommended Posts

Took the fam on a trip to Niagra Falls about 1,200 miles with all the around town driving. So I checked the oil before I left and as usual it was right at the top dot on the stick. When I got back I checked it again and it was down just a bit not unusual after a long trip at fast highway speeds. When I pulled the car in the garage I noticed a rather large fresh spot of oil on the driveway! So it looks like something is leaking oil.

 

On that note I was reading on another forum that Ford is having issues with the plastic oil pan on the smaller eccoboost motors leaking oil around the gasket where it seals to the engine can anyone confirm this?

The PTU is a likely suspect.

Little update my MKZ goes in next Tuesday to check oil leak. I suspect it is the oil pan gasket but will let you know.

Ok time for an update......

 

My oil leak was from the oil drain plug so no big deal they just dumped the oil and replaced it.

Hopefully you took it to different place from the one that last changed your oil and left the drain plug loose....
