SOURCE: oil leak out the rear main seal on a 2000 ford explorer

First, the easiest way IS to remove the transmission, it is a one piece seal, if it were a 2 piece, you would need to remove the oil pan and Rear Main Bearing Cap which in my opinion is alot tougher. When installing the new seal, make sure the the end of the crankshaft is clean of debris, lube the seal before sliding it over the end of the crankshaft to ease installation and some like to apply a thin coat of high temp sealant to the outside surface of the new seal to ensure no leakage. When reinstalling the flywheel/flex plate, proper torque is key because you dont want it working loose and having to remove the transmission again.

SOURCE: rear main seal is leaking on a Ford Mustang 2003 V-6

In order to replace the rear main seal u have to pull the transmission out to access it, u will need a special seal installer tool to install the new rear main "full circle seal", it u don't use the special ford tool the seal will leak again, also if there is a groove worn ion the crankshaft the crank must be repaired or replaced or the or the seal will leak again, so this is avery diff job, a 9 on the scale of 1-10 with 10 being the mos difficult.

SOURCE: rear axle leaking

Block the front tires. Break the rear lugs loose. Jack up the rear of the truck at the center if possible. remove the wheels & brake drums. Remove the brake shoes,return springs & all the other hardware. Remove the differential cover & drain oil. If you have a posi the next step sucks. You need to remove the threaded pin from the housing & remove the axle retaining clips. All the while,being carefull of the spring in the posi unit. If no posi,then same procedure,minus the "pucker factor". After the axle is out,take a large flat blade screw driver or pry bar & pop the seal out. Keep in mind the axle bearing is probably gone too , so that's another procedure. Keep it apart,you'll be glad you did.

I have a Ford Explorer 2005 Limited. I can't do more than 70 cause start to leak oil. We change the transmission seal but still leaking. Can someone give me an idea where it's the leak?


You have to define where the oil is coming from. front of the engine, rear of the engine left side right side where? If it is the rare you're most likely looking at the rear main seal. The next most likely culprit would be valve cover gasket's or oil pan gasket

Instrructions on replacing a rear main seal on 2004 kia rio


Oil leaking "in" your valve cover? Where is the oil at/coming from? And, to answar your question, rear main seal is a real job! Requires removing transmission, flex plate/fly wheel! It is the crank shaft seal, on the "rear" of the engine!

My 2004 ford freestar runs well but is leaking about a quart of oil a week almost


If it's leaking from inside the engine then it would be coming from the valve cover. The cover gasket seal is no longer sealing properly. If oil is leaking down under the car then check around the oil pan, could be gasket or rear main oil seal or front oil seal.

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,

2004 gmc yukon lite came on low oil pressure just had oil change 5 days ago checked it was low about a qt. Has 157,000 miles what can be the cause


There can be alot of causes, such as valve covers leaking, oil pan gasket leaking, oil filter leaking, rear main seal leaking, front timing chain cover seal or gasket leaking even bad rings. Does it smoke out of the back? Your valve seals could be leaking. Best way to find out if you have a leak is to inspect the valve covers manually, or take newspapers and lay them under the entire engine on the ground, and it will leave the tell tale stain of a leak. Hope this helps.

Oil leaking in engine have replaced seal and O rings but still leaks. I am going to scream!


ok, There are many areas that the oil could leak from. Head gasket, oil pan gasket, rear main seal, front seal, valve cover gasket. You'll need to locate the leak under the car in order to know which one to replace. There is nothing simple about replacing the rear main seal and although he front seal is easier it can still be a problem. Good Luck.

Oil leak


ok ill try not to tell you rear main seal. but i can;t it sounds to me like they may have over filled it and as a result that will blow seals. i mean it is very easy to fix. and yet very expensive. also check the place where they put the oil into and check the oil pan gasket. use some break cleaner on it and clean it then add oil run it and check it

1992 ford tempo oil leak?


Definently sounds like the rear main seal. My 97' Dodge Ram has the same issue and it leaks in the exact spot and has the same symptoms. Changing the gasket on the rear seal in simple but it's hard to get it apart to get to it unless you have the right tools and mechanic know-how. Your car seems to be leaking more than mine so it seems to be worst, but it is most definently the rear main seal. I put gasket maker/sealer on mine and it temperarely stopped the leak but due to pressure it will always seem to start again. Your best bet is saving the money or if you have it, invest it and go ahead and have the problem fixed. Hope I was of some help.
