Oil leaking

Asked by Jun 14, 2017 at 03:59 AM about the 1989 Ford F-250 XLT Lariat Standard Cab 4WD LB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have an 1989 f250 with a 460 in it I
bought the truck not long ago there is oil
build up on the bottom of the motor and all
over the transmission I knew there was an
oil leak but it did not look bad when I
moved it when I bought it but now it's
leaking oil like crazy I replaced the oil drain
bolt  gasket and there is still an oil leak but
why is it all over on the bottom of the
engine and transmission

1 Answer


Probably the oil pan gasket and or the valve cover gaskets. Easy fix. Oil leaks travel back along the transmission when you drive the vehicle from wind resistance.
