Escort leaking Oil

I have a 1999 Ford Escort ZX2. It is leaking Motor oil. The oil that is leaking seems to come from a location at the bottom portion of the engine. I am curious to know if anyone else has had a similar problem and what was the cause of the problem.

Re: Escort leaking Oil

Could be the oil pan gasket, How big is the leak? Rear Main Seal?
Best way to fix it would be first is to use a UV light( they sell a kit at most autostores with a dye and UV light. With the UV you can trace the leak

TIP: USE JACKSTANDS! when under the car.

Re: Escort leaking Oil

I'll second the oil pan gasket as the source of the leak. Had the oil pan gasket go on my '99 taurus a couple years back.

Re: Escort leaking Oil

The ZX2 has a bad habbit of the pan gasket leaking. I raced those for 2 years and its hard to get one to seal even when wee had the engines out building them
