I am having alot of oil leakage from my 1995 ford thunderbird V8 i believe it is a 302


A rear seal is a big job. Best way to confirm is to clean it up real well and see if you can track down the leak.

Oil leakage on Mercedes Benz 5.0L engines


oil in the bell housing can be rear main seal and it can also be input shaft seal in the gear box if manual. The sump bolts on the rear main cap and will leak next to the bell housing indicating a main seal . If auto then the seal on the converter will leak and the oil will leak out of the bell housing. If you are convinced that it is a main seal then check that there is no crankcase pressure issues to make it leak. Change the engine oil and clean the area and if the oils is clean then that will indicate engine or gear box. Put a white chalk line across any oil paths and watch for it to cross the chalk and change the chalk colour.

'91 toyota celica with oil leakage/ rear main seal


that is reasonable. considering you have to pull the engine out of car and remove transmission to do it. although the car isn't worth much more then that so I would just put some oil stop leak in and keep it toped up.

Oil gushing from trans.??????? changed valve cover gasget oil pan gasket someone told me the rear main seal????? how can i b sure


If it in fact it is the main seal you should see tranny fluid leak at the point where the engine bolts to the transmission. With car in park and brake on, start engine and carefully look under to see where the fluid is coming from. If you see no fluid leakage, place the front end (this assumes front wheel drive only) on jacks stands and block the back wheels. Have a friend start the car and with their foot on the brake place the car in drive and SLOWLY remove their foot from the brake and allow the front tires to spin (DO NOT REV ENGINE) watch for leakage as wheels turn. If you see leakage at the engine/tranny mating surfaces then yes I expect it would be your main seal. I'd take avery good look at tranny cooling lines to and from the radiator, if these leak it is very heavy.

I hope this may have assited you,

No leakage anywhere near engine but still the engine oil is disappearing


Check coolant tank for oil deposits( milky in substance) means you have a bad head gasket.
Usually if you were burng oil you see it at the tail pipe.
If you still can't find anything then bring it to a shop and have them do a cylinder leakage test. If yor handy let me know I'll give you the procedure do this. Good luck

1994 northstar motor leaking oil from engine block, where could it be coming from


Most likely it is the rear main seal. It is the seal that surrounds the crank shaft as it extends out to the transmission. The rreplacement of this seal involves removing the transmission. You could also have oil leaking from the rear side of the oil pan or the rear of the valve covers. But in most cases you can see this leakage. Therefore it is most likely going to be that rear seal.

this truck is equipped with an aluminum oil pan you could have 1 or several things going on... a stripped drain plug which is causing it to leak or it may be a leaking front seal or a rear main seal. If it is a front seal it is not to labor intensive. But if it is a rear main seal leaking it will require the transmission to be removed since the seal is a 1 piece rear main
