    Is this a coincidence? 2006 6L with 50k on it. Had the tranny oil changed and the next day I'm leaking motor oil on my driveway. I took it back to the tranny shop and he said there is no way it could be him. It appears to be coming from the main seal area. Any thoughts?

    i wouldnt jump to that conclusion so fast....ive heard of rear mains going on the 6liters.hopefully they put mercon sp in there.......your under warranty still go to the ford stealer and have em pull the motor to replace it..could be coming from your upper engine area also leaking down?

    yup, take that thing back to the dealer, it should be fixed under warranty. as far as i know that truck has a 5 year 100k mile warranty on anything on the engine due to all the problems they were having. its no deductible too.

    I know the 7.3 liters are bad for fuel bowl drain valve orings going out. The ULSD is really hard on them. I have gone through two sets in four years. On the upside, they are cheap!
    Fuel will pool in the valley and then run down the back of the motor making it look like a rear main seal is out.
