Customer Question
2002 Excursion 7.3...

2002 Excursion 7.3 Ran over a tool box in the road. after that I noticed oil coming out pretty fast out of the crankcase valley cover hole.(the plate between the tranny and oil pan...it goes up vertically and snugs up against the oil pan. I dont think its a rear main seal because it happened right after I hit that metal box in the road. What could that be? High pressure oil pump lines?

Mechanic's Assistant: When was your last oil change?

Months ago...dont drive it much

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Excursion yourself? What have you tried so far?

No...it just happened......pretty big leak

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No...thats it...thanks

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey
