You must remove the gearbox, then you need a special tool to install the new seal.

You would save yourself alot of headache to just get a new or rebuilt pump. But most ring seals can be replaced by taking off the pulley, then any retaining plate over the bearing/seal/shaft to expose the seal. Then pry out working around the seal with a seal pulling tool or small flat screwdriver. To install new seal, coat outer race and inner seal rubber of seal with a very thin coating of fresh motor oil, tap lightly around seal to get it started in seal cavity be sure it is even all the way around. Then get a socket or sleeve the same diameter as the outer diameter of the seal, place over the seal and tap it down gently until fully seated. Re-assemble casing and pulley.

I have a nissan 1400 champ and is leaking oil on the front part of the manual 5 speed gearbox and the rear part of the gearbox. I have replaced the crankshaft oil seal but i still have oil leaking on


There are seals on the front and rear of the transmission. If the clutch wasn't covered in engine oil, then replacing the crankshaft seal wasn't necessary. Reseal the transmission.

All wheel drive, 5speed manual,3.5 engine. Problem: clutch went to the floor and there was liquid all over the pavement, had no problems prior to this and the peddle is still down all the way. jack


Your clutch has a concentric bearing situated inside the gearbox, oil all over means that the seal broke and when you pressed the clutch the liquid went into the gearbox, onto the disc and than out through small gaps that are always there in the gearbox. Solution is simple but time taking, you need to remove the gearbox, take out the cylinder, examine the seal, replace it, bleed it ( not like normal clutch only by releasing air via nipple), examine for any leaks and than put everything back in with a new clutch.

Subaru Gearbox problem


there might be more than one issue here. its common for the early auto transmissions to not have the extra shims added to the center differential. This causes binding for the front axles and can damage a few parts. There was a recall for this many years ago. The other possibility is the valve body is manufunctioning and not fully engaging the gear your selecting. The fix is to get the valve body overhauled/rebuilt or replaced
