Oil leak at the front bottom of the engine
17th of November 2015 ... Number of Responses 1 --
I have a 99 Mercury Mystique GS & it's leaking oil from the front bottom side of the engine. It did not start leaking until after I had the oil changed. It is not coming from the drain plug or the oil filter. I do not know anything about cars and I am in desperate need of some guidance. Please help...

If it is the 2.5l engine it probably is the oil sending unit as they go bad. It is located behind the air compressor for the a/c unit. The sender is screwed into the block. With a flashlight and mirror you might be able to see it by locating the wire attached to it and following it back to the block. To replace, the Belt for a/c compressor needs to removed and the a/c compressor unbolted (not disconnected - otherwise you kill a/c)from engine to allow access.
