rear main seal is bad. drop the pan, loosen all mains ,chainge rear seal, retorque all maines, and put pan back on. its easer said then done. good luck

the other part sounds like the radeator and or oil cooler is bad.check your fluids, hoses, and your lines.


well i took to 2 different places and one i can see i already need an oil pan gasket but one said the radiator might have hols in it and that my heating problem might be because my clutch fan went out and the oil on the block was from something i dont remamber what it was tho sorry the other told me basicly get a new motor and new radiator did i forget to mention its a staright 6 a 300 6 cylider to be exact

if you change the seal, fan, and the radiator, you can save $2000-$3000 thats if the engine runs fine. the ford 6 is a great engine. it should be fine after all of this.
