This is most likely the rear main crankshaft seal, the trans must be removed to replace the seal.

I have a 2003 Dodge Neon se there's a major oil leak between the engine and transmission how do I fix this


Check that the oil leak is not engine oil coming out before the bell housing ( sump gasket) If the oil is coming out of the bell housing inspection cover then it means box put and either flywheel off for a rear main seal or torque converter out for a seal in the box or converter.. If it is a sump or rear main seal check the engine oil level first and the PCV valve operation as excessive oil level and sump pressure will cause the engine side problems that you can fix without removing the box.

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.

Leaking water from oil pan or behind oil pan


figure out what type/size engine you have, call a dealer and ask for service department. ask them whether that engine has freeze plugs on the back of the block underneath the flywheel or ring gear. if not you may have a head gasket or heater hose leak which is dripping down through the bell housing presenting itself as coming via the oil pan gasket. there should be no water whatsoever in the oil pan and if there is you need to look around for a replacement used engine.

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.

I have 1995 toyota camry with 2.2 liter engine.I installed a new oil pan gasket,and valve cover gasket,cause there was alot of oil leaking from that area.All the work was done about two months ago.there...


I have the same car and the same problem. I can see the oil shooting out at the (upside down) rear, right side of the oil pan. This side of the oil pan is covered by a piece of plastic foam. There are no bolts on this side of the pan. Toyota recommends grey Formagaskit to seal the pan. The natural flow for this leak is all over the bell housing. The piece of plastic foam is attached to bell housing inspection cover. Good Luck!!!

Water coming from bell housing.


If you are ABSOLUTLY POSITIVE this is where the Coolant is coming from the ONLY Sorce is Freeze plugs ,There are Usualy 2 Behind the Flywheel. Sorry For the BAD NEWS but this IS the only thing that can Leak Out of the Bell Housing, Transmissiou Must Come Out and Flywheel also, Once The Flywheel is OUT you will see the FREEZE PLUGS. Good Luck !! Please RATE ME !!!!!!!!!!!!
