    what about the leak? to replace the seal the transmission must be pulled out, after the trans is out it is a straight forward repair.

Where is the most common place for oil leak


The front and rear main seals will cause a significant oil leak or even the valve covers. I pressure washed mine really well then kept a eye on the leaks and it was a front main seal not easy to replace because you have to remove all the intercoolers and radiator then u have to seat the seal perfectly or it will leak again

Rear main leak seal


It's a one piece seal, and easy to install, but you will either have to pull the engine or drop the transaxle to get to it.

Rear seal leaking on 2007 ford escape


In order to replace the rear main seal you will need some auto repair tools and experience . this is a big job , the transmission must be removed to replace this seal, also make sure that the seal is the leak,

oil always flows down, a leak on the top of the engine will flow down and drip at the center rear and look like a rear main seal , make sure that is the leak!!.

Depending on what engine you have and if it has 4 wheel drive the time for a shop to do is from 7 to 10 hours depending on engine size and 4wd,

Oil leaking from toyota camry 1992, 1994 model


You don't say what engine it has. The 4-cyl was a better than the V6 for oil leaks.

The V6 had oil leaks from

-rear bank cam cover gasket

-distributor o-ring seal

-oil filter bracket o-ring seal

-crankshaft nose oil seal (less common)

-rear main bearing oil seal (expensive, just leave it)

The 4 cyl leaked oil from

-distributor o-ring seal

-camshaft cover gasket

-rear main bearing seal (expensive, leave it)

I have had my rear main seal replaced 3 times and it is still leaking. Could this leak be coming from somewhere else? The first mechanic assumed it was the rear main seal, and the others I informed them...


First off i would hope that there was some waranty coverage for this repair.

Is the fluid leak indeed oil (black/brown)? If so that would be the rear main. Problem could be the surface around the seal on the engine has a defect or space.

If the fluid leak is a reddish color this is transmission fluid and would be the torque convertor leaking not the rear main.

Good Luck!

Rear main seal leaks..does this affect transmission??


A leaking rear main seal will not cause your transmission to leak.

The transmission has its own seal and should not leak because of the engine rear main seal.

Due to the labor involved in replacing the rear main seal on the engine, it is best if you replace the front transmission seal at the same time if possible.

Installation varies on different vehicles but the principles are the same.

Rear main seal


THE REAR MAIN IS WHAT IS CALLED A FULL CIRCLE SEAL, SO YES THE TRANS AND FLYWHEEL MUST BE REMOVED, U WILL ALSO NEED THE SPECIAL FORD SEAL INSTALLER, WITHOUT IT THE SEAL WILL MOST LIKELY LEAK SOONER AFTER INSTALLATION.

1999 ford expedition - rear main seal leaking


I don't know why your mechanic needs a picture of the seal. Here is what you will need to do. The tranny will need to be removed because your vehicle has a one piece real seal. After you remove the tranny remove the flywheel then you have access to the rear main seal. If you have never removed a tranny leave it to someone capable of the job. You will need many tools to remove the tranny and a little muscle here and there. It is an easy process for a mechanic, but labor intensive.
