A few weeks ago I noticed my 2003 XLT was leaking a bit toward the front (near the engine) and slightly off center toward the right of the center line. At first it looked like water (although it took forever to evaporate) but yesterday I noticed that the fluid was much darker and don't believe it is water anymore (dark brown and oily). Thoughts? I have pictures but it won't let me upload here.

The headlights will not go off as long as my car is running. Even if I turn them off they stay on. My highbeams will not turn off either. The only time my lights will go out is after the car has been off for 10 minutes. We have checked the fuses.

How can I fix the problem? Local shops keeps trying things that cost money but do not fix the problem! First, dropped pan, changed dirty trans fluid. Then cut exhaust pipe put in used trans 80k fewer miles they say. Took to another shop. 02 sensor (sensor 1 bank 2) replaced. New plugs and wires and catalytic convertor. Check engine light and o/d still come on! Are they just sucking money? Help!!!

My 98 ford explorer will only blow cold air conditioning when the radiator is low on antifreeze. I only know this because the radiator seal was broken and it constantly leaked, when it was full the air blew hot and when it was low the air blew cold. We had the radiator replaced today and it's blowing hot again. The condenser and compressor are only 2 years old and gauge says it's full of coolant.... what could this be?
