Answer 1
the oil pan gasket is a big failure with fords. the replacement gaskets dont pop out the front like the old ones did. the other gaskets are straight forward with the exception of the manifold gaskets. that is un common. anyway, i think you should go to another shop and have a dye inserted in the oil and have them use a light to determine any other leaks. you have had a lot repaired, now I think you should backtrack a little and start from scratch to see where there are any leaks. good luck Roy -
