Yeah i just came on here to start this post, and WoW, its right here. Mine front oil pan is leaking for sure, tightened all the bolts, and it didnt help. Im going to replace the gasket when Im due for the next oil change. I check the levels often, it is not leaking at a alarming rate....This must be a trouble spot for these Rangers mine is a 2004 4.0
