Ford Aerostar Repair and Maintenance

A guide to problems, costs, maintenance and repair for your Ford Aerostar

Engine oil leaks are known to develop around the rear crankshaft (main) seal and engine oil pan gasket.

The valve cover gasket may fail, causing engine oil to leak onto the exhaust manifolds.

If you experience poor idle quality and fuel economy (and the Check Engine Light illuminates) after the exhaust system or motor has been removed and replaced, it could be that the oxygen sensor wires are crossed at the rear of the motor. Wiring schematics should be checked to ensure that the correct harness plug is connected to the corresponding sensor.
