problem #2

Noticed oil leak on my driveway. Had it serviced for routine check. Dealer stated that there is oil leaking but not sure where it's leaking from. Advised to make appointment to investigate. Appointment made for 9/15/16, dealer stated just a loose oil seal????? and that they resealed it. Get home, park in my driveway, oil leaking again. Will call on Monday. Will keep you all posted.

Update from Mar 28, 2017: Had oil sending unit replaced.

Ford dealer repair technician advised that they would need to replace this leaking "oil sending unit" but they didn't stock one. Of course it's Friday afternoon and doubtful they will get one before next week so I'm likely without my vehicle for 2-3 more days. He also said he has seen several of these go bad on new Explorers. Sounding like these new Explorers are a large bucket of crap. WARNING - DO NOT BUY ONE!
