Instrructions on replacing a rear main seal on 2004 kia rio


Oil leaking "in" your valve cover? Where is the oil at/coming from? And, to answar your question, rear main seal is a real job! Requires removing transmission, flex plate/fly wheel! It is the crank shaft seal, on the "rear" of the engine!

Leaking oil Ford Freestar-was halfway between two lines on dipstick when I checked last week-puddle this evening and am down just past the bottom line-put in a quart but am worried to drive the car to


well it could be several things like pan plug seal cracked, oil pan leaking, rear main seal bad, front engine seal bad, head bolts not properly torqued, head could be cracked, but I would start with the oil pan drain plug seal and work from there.

Truck runs great @ 168K miles. No engine performance or power loss. But recently started leaking oil slowly from unknown location. Drips accumulate and appear below & back of engine by transmission...


Their is a front and rear oil seal on the oil pan itself..........If it is leaking by the bell housing then you will have to drop the oil pan and replace the rear oil seal and i would do the front one on the pan as well..........Hope this helps.

How do you get a rear main seal off. A friend siad you can use a scew driver to pop it off this is a toyota celica gt 2002 oh and what do you look for on the seal to determine it is bad will it only be...


Changing a rear main seal is a major repair. The transmission must be separated from the motor to get to it. The way you know a rear main seal is bad is that it will be leaking oil between the back of the engine and the front of the transmission. If it is not leaking oil, then leave it alone. If it is leaking then you have two options. Have some replace it by doing what I have just told you (call around, its probably pretty expensive). Or you can do what I would do, Just check your oil ALL the time and add oil when you need to. Put some cardboard under your car where the oil drips and leave it alone until you want to spend the money.

I was told I have to replace the crankshaft seal and oil pan gasket on my 2000 chevy malibu and will cost approx. $380.00. Also is the rear main seal the same thing as the crankshaft seal??? Thanks!


Well sometimes.... the front crankshaft seal is usually called a crank seal, or the front timing cover seal but the rear crank seal is (usually) called the Rear Main crank seal. In order to replace the rear seal , the transmission will need to be removed. If its the front, then the harmonic balancer will be removed. $380 sounds cheap. As you will need a oil seal, oil pan gasket, oil, filter, labor and tax. Maybe even a lower engine mount.

My toyota vienta 3VZ-FE 1996 - oil leak onto exhaust


Hi,

That engine will leak oil from

- cam cover gaskets (rear one drips on the exhaust)
- camshaft end seals
- distributor shaft o-ring (appears on top of transaxle housing)
- oil filter bracket to block o-ring seal (drips on front bank exhaust)
- crankshaft nose oil seal (have done with timing belt change)
- rear main seal (expensive, leave it be)

My Chevy 2002 Tahoe is leaking oil. They told me


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

Loosing oil in 06 impala SS


First, do you see oil leaking on your driveway? Have you looked under the car and checked to see if any oil is dripping?A rear main seal will drip down the front cover plate of the transmission sometimes from the inside, appearing like a front seal leak on your transmission but the oil will not be red fluid you would expect if that were the case. I would not worry about rear main unless you see a leak there. Look your entire engine over and check for leaks everywhere. Several small leaks can add up to an overall large oil loss. Correct the larger ones first.
Generally all seals will last far longer if you change your oil frequently using a good quality lubricant. If you are loosing some oil, use one of the oils made for high mile engines. I suggest you use a mild additive like marvel oil 1pint with every oil change...it removes sludge, carbon and varnish buildup without the drawback of knocking it loose all at once, where it could plug up your oil pump screen. (it also smells good) Change oil every 3000 miles for the first three or four intervals, then consider using a good synthetic oil. Synthetics far outperform any other lubricant in every area! Avoid overheating your engine...overheating does more damage to seals than any single other item...When seals get very hot they harden up, crack and fail.
Good luck with your car!!!
