    Simply put , the muffler bearings are shot , its putting too much heat in that mean rear end . Thus causing a leak . There is a good fix to it .

    First , start a pot of hot water , and get some towels .

    Then call George Wendt , he will bring some beer .

    Jack up your rear end and drill a hole smack dab in the middle of the cover , this will allow it to dissipate the offending fumes before draining .

    Then remove the axle as a whole assembly and take it down to your nearest Catholic church for Exorcism .

    When you get home call Autozone and get some muffler bearings , and maybe stop at Taco Bell for something supreme while your out .

    Replace axle as an assembly , install new muffler bearings , and your done .:D

    try checking the blinker fluid resevoir. this is a common problem on fords. When blinker fluid begins to leak you might have to FIX OR REPAIR DAILY and the problem can often leave you FOUND ON THE ROAD DEAD . This would be my first guess, although I have seen many blue ovals blighted with faulty muffler bearings.

    I got my buddy good the other day. He gives me so much crap over my old chevy, but his new ford broke down on him. He was stranded and had to give me a call. Of course I went to help him out. Well he told me what happened so I went around to the back of the car and said in all seriousness, 'hey man, here is your problem.' He came to the back where I was grinnin' and pointing at his ford emblem...

    HAHA, he got pissed, but now I can say my old chevy has broken down as many times as his new furd....
