2.5 leaking oil
This is a 2000 2.5 with 278,000 on the clock. It has sat for 2 1/2 years with a broken timing belt. I just went ahead and bought another truck (now my forth Ranger), so this one sat in the driveway. I'm trying to get it running for my daughter who just recently got her license.
I replaced the timing belt and it runs like a top, two days later it's leaking oil. Coming off the crossmember at the front of the truck. I'm guessing it's the front seal ? Looking online for parts and it recomends you buy the oil pan gasket too, can you get the front seal out without removing the pan ? Am I headed in the right direction for the leak on a truck thats sat for so long ?
