I am seeing oil near the exhaust shield and the steering rack. I have searched for it but no luck. I friend told me the early 4.6L Northstar engine had some oil leak issues but didn’t know where.

Are there still DIY car washes around, where you can clean it up good with hot/pressurized spray?

Curious, are there fluorescent dyes specifically for engine/trans fluid, or would the OP have to just put in a bit of A/C dye? (I don't think the A/C dye would hurt anything).

I just now looked at the link you sent. It doesn’t sound very good to me but at least I now understand what I am looking at. Thank you very much!!!
