Well I've struck oil haha !!


But yeah went to a buddies up north and left a little puddle on his riveway him his pops and I went for a look, dad said it looks like the main real seal (right infront of the tranny in the front) also saw oil on the tranny plate? Said ies a pain in the *** to fix anyone know what say ford would have this cost me, looks like is wouldnt be to expensive ,just a gasket.

you have a 5 speed?

if so i thought i had a main seal go.. well there is 3 plugs that are rubber on the top of a mazda 5 speed and they tend to shrink and leak.. cheap and easy to replace if it isnt a 5 speed well ya...

You can't just fix what you've got, your girlfriends truck is still bigger than yours. You need a bigger Ranger! Good luck with the il leak. I had to have a seal replaced recently, but luckily it was still under warrenty.
