Oil leak... :/

Ok so.. Not sure what's going on. My car is leaking oil. It's pooling up by the front passenger side spark plug and running down into the exhaust and burning off. I know it's leaking because I soaked it all up and 2 days later its back.

It's just a little higher than it used to be. I can get some more pictures up and try and see if I can get better angles.

Valve cover gasket? How much is that on these cars? Only one I ever did was on a 89 jeep

Is that vid starting a a COP? If so, you may want to clean around it and carefully pull the spark plug.

To be honest i never had to change one at work,,they are a reusable type and ive never had one leak,,I bet they are a little pricey,,but i would get it from ford,,or a good name brand

Yea I just wish I could tell where it's coming from.


I called ford and the guy said he can't imagine a valve cover gasket going out before 50,xxx miles

Take a look at a valve cover gasket SET. You'll see that there's a bunch of little gaskets. Unfortunately I can remember what kind of gasket is in that area but it could be one of those little ring gaskets. If you're mechanically inclined, go grab a Fel-Pro valve cover gasket set. Because if you're gonna try to fix it yourself you're gonna need it anyway because you'll need to take the valve cover off. If the car runs fine I doubt you cracked the valve cover. It's gotta be something with the plug, plug boot, or one of the gaskets. Idk man. It's gonna have to come apart to figure it out. The oil isn't just appearing lol. From the way it sounds and looks it should be a pretty easy fix.

Looking at the ford catalog at work I only see the valve cover gaskets and the VCT seals.

It looks like it is the valve cover gasket just my luck I guess. I'll probably order cams and just do them at the same time (that was the plan anyway) The cars going to be parked for the rest of the winter so ill just have to deal with that next spring.

They are not reusable when you remove your valve covers it's recommended to change your gaskets.
