Have Ford Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose).
As long as you keep the oil level up, driving it with this leak will be fine, just messy. No you cannot get to all the bolts without disassembly. I have those steps if needed. You are looking at 8.4 hours of labor
Now that I have posted a partial or complete answer, you will see you can rate me. The deposit you have already paid is not transferred to me until you rate me. I would like to receive nothing less than 5 star excellent ratings. So if we are not there yet, please reply and let me help more. If you're not pleased, let me know because rating bad does not result in a refund, there are better options. Rating now will not close this post nor prevent replying. Thanks Chris
I do not recommend any kind of stop leak. Would you like the Ford steps to replace the oil cooler?
