Oil leak

Asked by Aug 07, 2016 at 09:49 AM about the 2003 Ford Mustang Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have an oil leak in my mustang well at least I think
it is. Right between the oil can and my transmission
pan under the car is a part with what seems to be
like some plastic plug in type thing. It looks as if my
oil is coming out of there. I can't find anything
online explaining what that part is and how to fix it.

Possibly the oil level or pressure sensor

It is likely a rear main seal leaking especially if it is wet inside where the plastic plug goes. Repair will require removal of the transmission, torque converter, starter, and flexplate.

Is this an expensive fix ?

If it is the rear main seal the labor will be expensive, but the part is cheap like $20.00 or so. Which engine do you have, the V6?
