Having problems with your 1995 Ford Thunderbird ?

2have an oil leak around the oil filter housing, maybe around the censor....could it be a gasket or could it be coming from the nut that holds the censor?

Answers :

It could be either but it is impossible to say without inspecting the car. If the leak is around the filter housing I suspect it is more likely from the oil filter. The oil filter gasket may have failed or the filter may not be screwed on firmly enough. However filters do not have to be screwed on very tightly to prevent a leak. If over tightened they can be difficult to remove and the rubber gasket can even be damaged.

I suggest you have the oil changed in the car and have the oil filter changed at the same time. This is very cheap to do and a new decent quality brand oil filter (such as MOTORCRAFT which meets Original Equipment specs for your car)) is only about $10 - if that. Whilst the oil and filter are being changed from beneath the car, with the vehicle on the hoist, it should be possible to examine the likely source of the leak.

Hi, I just got a ford freestar for real cheap, now I know why. this thing leaks oil. Got under there cleaned up all the oil off bottom of car, looked like it was coming from the oil filter, So I changed it, then tested it watching if it was still gonna leak, sure enough, the leak was coming from just above the oil filter. Is this where the sensor is? And is this senor have some kinda of gasket or O ring? Do these Ford freestar 2004 vans have a common problem with leaking oil here?
