I have a mystery oil leak in my daughter's Escape. I replaced the valve cover seals, the air plenum seals and the PCV valve which showed wear and were leaking oil. It was fine for a while but now it's losing about a quart every 100 miles or so. The only place I see oil is between the valve cover and the thermostat housing. Please see the pictures. Anyone else dealt with this before? Thanks!
I just purchased a used 2003 Ford Escape XLT with 4 wheel drive and the 3.0L V-6 engine and I need to get it inspected. During the preinspection I was told there was a "big" oil leak (underlined twice), oil on exhaust, exhaust leak in front, and oil leaking on belts. I don't know very much about oil leaks but research seems like it might point to the valve cover gasket (at least for the oil leaks). I don't really know where to start. I double checked the oil level and the engine doesn't seem to have lost anything.
