I have had a plethora of problems with this car over my 3 years of ownership. Two weeks ago I took my car in to have a leak looked at around the Harmonic damper and lower timing chain cover. They said it was a bad water pump and replaced it.

Last night I popped the hood and found the damper completely saturated again. It looks and smells like oil not coolant. I went ahead and contacted Ford to have a case number for my dealership to acknowledge. I am tired of taking this thing in and maybe getting the managers attention might get this thing fixed. Time to be a dik!

Probably the crank seal behind the harmonic balancer.

I think you are exactly right. They should have seen that when replacing the water pump. Just shoddy work ethic at this dealer and thats why I contacted Ford.

My gut is telling me my crankshaft is walking. At 1500rpms in neutral the car starts to shake. Ontop of that if I hold the throttle steady and push in the clutch the pedal vibrates bad and the rpms drop as if i took my foot off the gas. I read that is a symptom of crank walk.
