Ford escort 97 model vtec 1.4 l.oil leak clutch seal outer

Hi
I'm here in cape town south africa. I have a 97 ford escort 1.4 l vtec . There's been an old leak upfront for a few months now. I've replaced the oil cap. I've put a new cork gasket seal on the head cover but there's a steady drip . Slow drip but after the engine stops it'll drop a small amount every time. I've cleaned up around the right front around the clutch and have pin pointed the problem around the rubber seal where the clutch arm connects the engine via that serated pin. The little seal seems to be loose and leaking. How does one replace this item themselves? I haven't done it before but is it possible to replace the seal without getting to involved in the engine?
Any advice will be wellcomed.
Kind Regards
Bruce

It sounds like your valve cover is bent, you may need to buy a new one, did you use any gasket sealer with the cork gsket? if not remove the valve cover and use gasket sealer..... Apply it driectly to the cork gasket...... if you did not use sealeant this is why it is leaking.

Where is the commen oil leak on a 97 ford taurus


Maybe, maybe not, It's most likely a bad rear seal or worn main bearings but check the oil filter just to be safe. Sometimes things go wrong when changing the oil filter that can cause similar symptoms.
1) old gasket left behind.
2) cross threaded filter.
3) loose filter.
4) damage gasket or defective new filter.

'97 Ford Escort leaking auto transmission fluid.


The front seal could be replaced, and not have a problem. If you have a shop other than a transmission shop do the repairs, make sure the torque converter hub is inspected to make certain its not scratched/scorn. If the trans shifts properly and the fluid is not burned or smells burned, this would be an easy repair. If the trans fluid smells burned, and hasn't been serviced regularly, the rebuild would be the way to go. Also, ask what the warranty for any and all repair are on your vehicle. Normal warranty is 1yr, 12.000 miles in the automotive business.
