On my last oil change, the technician noted some oil around top and side of the engine block and said there is a small leak.
The only way to find where it is coming from is doing the whole dye test, that's hundreds of dollars.
Before I do that, with so many Taurus sold in the U.S. - is there a common area to look at where these engine may be leaking from ?
I have been adding a quart every month and a half or so to keep it level and haven't really noticed anything on the ground.
This is a gen 3, 2004, Duratec 24V, 4-door, SES.
Any help is appreciated.
Possibility: Oil pan threads stripped?
