Oil Leaks

Hi all,

I own a 1990 Falcon S MPFI 5 Speed with about 92000k's on the clock and was wondering if you may be able to help me.

The engine seems to be leaking small amounts of oil from just about every seal I can see (rokker cover, sump, etc) and was wondering if this sounds normal to you or if its a sign of bigger problems to come.

The car blows no smoke and seems to run fine. I am also using Castrol Magnetec motor oil as well (Not sure if this is relavent, but its a much thinner oil).

Any advice would be appreciated!

Damn your car has low K's

Mines leaked oil since the day we bought it (which was when it was a yr old) and has been running strong all its life, recently it has gotten pretty bad and I'm gonna have to do something about it very soon, every where i go, even if it's for 5 minutes theres a line of oil thats about the width of the motor on the ground, and there is a constant real slow drip when the engine is warm. It's damn embarassing

Sounds like nearly every other EA on the road!!
Those are amazingly low k's for a 90 model, mine is an 88 with nearly 300 showing up. When i got mine the leaks were already fixed with better gaskets, i have had it for 18 months now with no oil leaks. (just pwr steering fluid leaks).
