hw do i see if the rear oil seal is bad in 2000 ford ranger

 

Expert:  Canadafix replied 4 years ago.
Hello.

If you have an oil leak in that area it is difficult to determine if it is the rear of the oil pan or the rear seal.
Did this leak occur after your repair?
If you did not disturb the crank, it may be the pan.

Thank you,
Bernie
