another option that i discovered by accident is to use permatex ultra blue. the first time, i had no other options--all i had was a tube of ultra blue. i drained the transfer case, and blotted the 3/8" by 1" hole in the case with a paper towel. the first coat of RTV didn't even completely cover the hole. it took about ten coats--each coat drying for about forty-five minutes. that's right, TEN coats. i still haven't gotten around to replacing the transfer case, and that was two years ago. no leaks, driving the truck hard in 2wd and 4wd. I've since done the same with oil pan holes. the ultra blue can handle the temperature, the pressure, no leaks, and it dresses up the underside of the vehicle with some nice, bright blue....hey, whatever works!

Yes, it is very easy to change your oil on a Ford Escape. You will need a socket wrench, and oil pan, and oil. Open the oil cap, jack up the car and place the oil pan underneath the oil pan on the SUV. Open the drain plug and let the oil flow into the oil pan. When done, close everything up and add new oil.
