I have a rear axle seal leakage.


Only if that is where the leak is.
Would be good to determine that before dismantling.
Leaks could be from the front seal, from the differential cover, from the fill plug, or from the vent.
Some differential covers are using sealant instead of a gasket these days.
A leak indicated from the front seal ( where the drive shaft is attached) might tell you to just keep adding oil, as it could be really expensive to fix.
God bless your efforts.

I had a leaking rear diff cover so I dropped the oil and clean the cover and the rear diff where the cover mates up and silconed the cover and reinstalled and then it start leaking out the front of the...


If the seal is leaking, it will need to be replaced, if you have a service manual, it will show you the procedure to replace the seal. DO NOT try to replace the seal without following the proper guidelines as input bearing damage can occur. After the repairs are made, be sure to to clean the vent tube/valve on the diff. to avoid pressure build up that will cause early seal failure, this vent should also be cleaned at every oil change.

Leaking oil fro the bottom front I had the motor changed and they say its the main seal . But i want to do it myself


Its likley the Crank seal, also called front main ( rear main being the end that meets the transmission.

Its pretty easy to do you just have to remove the serpentine belt, and remove the crank pulley, then you can pry out the old seal with a pick or screwdriver, clean the area from dirt and debris. then put the new seal in place, you can use a large socket that fits the ring of the seal, and hit it in with a hammer, keep hitting evenly around the seal so it goes in straight

Cam seal leak


Replacing the cam seal is really more time consuming than difficult. The EJ-25 motor requires the removal of front covers, timing belt, and the timing gear for the cam that needs replaced. The seal can be replaced without removing the valve cover or cam. The installation is very important on setting the cam timing. Good luck and have a great day.

Most transissions front leak is the front seal but it can also be the pump gasket over flow expelling fluid.To save money you should first change the filter. Them if it still leaks pull the trany and pull the front pump and change the gaskets and seals. If this does not fix it then you should seek professional help.

HOW HARD IS IT TO CHANGE THE STRUT BELLOWS ON THE FRONT OF MY 2001 MERCEDES.THE CAR IS DOWN ON THE FRONT WHEELS EVERY MORNING.I ASSUME THAT THE BELLOWS ARE LEAKING.


if it is only in the morning, seems it is leaking from top seal that can be repaired without changing strut.
you can put soapy water on top of the strut ( where pressure line is connected) to check leakage.

Oil leaks


clean off the area where you suspect the leak is then run and check. The only way to change rear main seal (and have it actually work) is by removing crankshaft. I have seen this attempted at least a hundred times and never seen one yet that didn't leak. Some of the new oils for "older engines" have a seal softener in them tha usually will help but don't expect results for months...it took years for seals to harden & wear.

Front Main Seal is blown on the Transmission


You have to remove the transmission, remove the torque converter to access the seal. Most likely the bushing behind the seal is worn out allowing fluid to leak past the seal. After the trans. is out, take it to a trans. shop. It requires a special tool to change the bushing. Seems like a bunch of work for $10.00 in parts. The rear main seal requires pulling the pan to access it. When the trans. is out, this is the time to replace the rear main seal on the engine.
