Some 2015-2018 Ford F-150 vehicles equipped with a 2.7L or 3.0L EcoBoost engine may exhibit an oil leak from the engine oil pan’s RTV seal.

Remove the pan and replace the sealant. After removing the pan, it is suggested to allow the crankcase to drain overnight to minimize the chance of residual oil contamination of the crankcase sealing rail.

Remove all traces of old RTV sealant and clean sealing surfaces with Motorcraft Metal Brake Parts Cleaner, then wipe with Motorcraft Metal Surface Prep Wipes and allow to air dry. If possible, allow the new RTV sealant to cure for 4 hours before refilling with oil.
