    I used to own a 1999 1.8d van, the sills rotted & the rear door seals fall off (can be stuck back on with some silicon sealer) otherwise it was a hardy old bus & was never any bother in the 3 years I had it.

    It was the non turbo version, slower than a week in the jail!

    oil could be from the 3 rocker cover screw/bolt seals

    Only thing I can think of is that Escort Vans are known for problems with rear light earths, so you may need clean the earthing point..

    Factor in £20 a side for a bottom pressed steel complete wish bone on each side (driveway able with swearing!). Non turbo's are glacially slow. Otherwise pretty rugged (well mine were!).
