Not common, part is cheap, fix is easy. You will need a few basic hand tools a metal punch awl to remove old seal (like an ice pick) and soft faced hammer to drive the new seal in.

How do you replace rear oil seal in 1994 Isuzu Standard tranmission


Chockblock front wheels to prevent truck rolling, and jack vehicle up and place a jackstand under frame to prevent vehicle falling. Remove driveshaft, seal is now visible to be pried out for new one to be lightly tapped into place with a rubber mallet or hammer, along with a wooden block, taking care to keep new seal straight while replacing. replace driveshaft and check fluid level, lower vehicle and remove chockblocks.

Oil leaking between gearbox and driveshaft


sounds like transmission rear seal. Any good shop can replace fairly inexpensively. Unless you have tools, just undo driveshaft at rear-end, yoke slides out of transmission. With a seal puller, pops out, tap in new one with mallard and reinstall driveshaft.

Oil leak from driveshaft n/s


not sure if you can interchange the manual & aut shafts, but you should check to see if there is excessive play where the shaft enters the gear box if so the diff bearings my be worn, if there is no play or noises from gear box when driving, remove the shaft again an try the seal on the shaft to check it's a proper fit, before fitting seals it is a good idea to leave them soaking in oil for a few hours prior to fitting

hope this helps

It sounds like something is slipping when you stop and start the truck. I jacked it up and saw transmission fluid leaking from the rear at the yoke


Sounds like your driveshaft u joints are worn out and need replacement and a bad extension housing seal.

1991 chevy silverado 1500 2-wd leaking oil seals, rear end.


the outer bearings can be driven in using a suitable Very Large socket. Removing the old ones either requires a puller or a cutting torch. I use either depending on the state of the bearings.
when driving new ones in, make sure
  1. your socket wont jam in with the bearing
  2. you only hit against the outer bearing shell
  3. you keep it very straight
  4. hit it til you hear a resounding solid clunk as the bearing reaches full insertion.
  5. you fit a new oil seal
  6. use a block of wood across the oil seal face to protect it as you knock it in - keep it straight!
To answer the other question, yes you do have to remove the driveshaft to replace the oil seal. the Diff ack-plate has to be removed, the locking horseshoes from the ends of the driveshaft, & the wheels. It takes about 1 hour to remove them & clean the backplate. about another to reassemble.
I charge about $140 plus parts
