Question about 1997 Chevrolet Tahoe
Well you have a main seal go out. what this means is there is an oil seal on the crankshaft behing the harmonic balancer. you also have a rear main seal this is on the crankshaft which is bolted to the flywheel and mounted to the transmission. if there was an oil puddle that means your oil pump is probably still good,however the replacement of the seal is not as easy as you might think. it is time consuming and tedious. If you wish to do this yourself, go to Napa or Oreilly's and spend the 20 bucks on the repair manual. it will have step by step instruction on your particular problem as well as other repairs. this is a good investment and will save you on labor costs. please rate this thanks and good luck keep me posted
