You need a new intake manifold gasket. Its a very common problem with the 2.8 On the back side of the motor is an oil pump drive gear that is driven by the cam. On older engines this is were the distributor would set. Like a distributor there is an O ring on the shaft its probly hard as a rock and cracked allowing oil to leak by. Good Luck
Could be leaking transmission fluid.
green fluid is engine coolant. as this is showing up near the transmission this could be leaking from the head gasket or from a freeze plug. you will just have to trace back where it is coming from remember there are freeze plugs behind transmission which are not viible while transmission is in vehicle
could be freeze plug, or intake leaking
If it's leaking transmission fluid, could be a bad pump seal. If it's leaking engine oil, could be a bad oil filter, leaking valve cover gasket, leaking intake manifold gasket, leaking oil pressure sender, leaking distributor gasket.
If it runs empty transmission failure If it is leaking on hot part of engine or exhaust - fire risk If it is leaking near tire track loss of traction could occur
Determine the origination of leak and repair Could be transmission cooler line, seal, etc.
I really don't think that's possible.
please be more specific is it leaking engine oil, coolant, transmission oil, brake fluid, or power steering fluid where is it leaking from ?
If your transmission has a vaccume shift modulator, the Engine will suck the transmission fluid out & sometimes if the modulator is real BAD U will have smoke coming out of the exhaust pipe. If this is an automatic, and the car is blowing some white smoke, the diaphragm in the transmission modulator is bad. If this is the case, you will have to replace the whole modulator.
if you have an automatic transmission there should be cooling lines going to the radiator to cool the transmission fluid the lines could be leaking or the tank could be leaking
It could be leaking from a number of places. Some could be a simple fix and others not so simple. Need more info as to where it is leaking.
you might have a blown head gasket and the coolant is leaking into the cylender and the engine is burning it.
If it is an automatic transmission, the cooler in the radiator is most likely leaking into the coolant system.
The transmission fluid could be leaking into the engine coolant through the transmission cooler in the radiator. You should be able to see the transmission fluid in the engine coolant recovery tank. It will look like a oily film on top of the coolant. White smoke (steam) out of the exhaust indicates engine coolant is leaking into a cylinder.This can be a result of a blown cylinder head gasket or a cracked cylinder head. Have the engine coolant system pressure tested to detect the leak.
Your engine may have a leaking hose connection or a leaking gasket at the water outlet. It could also be a leaking hose.
you need to find where the leak is coming from, but be very careful, if the gas is leaking onto or near any hot engine components such as the exhaust manifold, it could easily start a fire
it could be a leak coming from the chamber behind the water pump just beneath the exhaust manifold. too much labor
it could be coming from your transfer case. i don't know for sure with the escort but it usually needs to be filled seperately.
this water could be leaking from a heater hose,or the head gasket,or the intake manifold gasket. if it is showing a s coming from inside the transmission housing, it may be coming from a freeze plug. get a mechanic to check it before it gets worse and damages engine, ps: does the coolant level in radiator drop? if not it is more likely to be condensation from running a/c. this will make a huge puddle under car if it is coolant it will be colored red or green.if condesation,it will be clear like water and nothing at all to worry about as that is what it is supposed to do
Red liquid is usually transmission fluid. transmission fluid
It could be a variety of things, the likely culprit would be a blown front pump seal in your transmission. Put some fluid in the transmission and let the car idle. Then look underneath it and see if you can tell where the leak is coming from. If it seems to be coming from between the engine and transmission then it's likely the pump seal. If you have it repaired you should replace the torque converter as well since it could have a groove worn on the hub. Unfortunately the transmission will have to be completely removed in order to make this repair. Depending on what area of the country you live in you could be looking at a $4-600 repair bill.
red fluid is transmission fluid and could be leaking from several locations around the transmission. Check the cooler lines where they go into the radiator, the seals where the axles go into the transmission, but most likely is a leaking pan gasket, etc. The only good way to find it is to look under the van and see where the wet spot is located
transmission cooler lines are common to leak
it could be from leaking valve cover gaskets and the oil is running down the side of the engine to the oil pan. make sure it is engine oil and not from the transmission or power steering
Sounds like head gasket is leaking allowing coolant into combustion chamber
