SOURCE: Rear Main Seal Leak

To replace the seal, the mechanic will have to either lift the engine or lower the transmission. You will get much better pricing going to a transmission shop (e.g. AAMCO) and getting a quote from them to replace the seal.

SOURCE: Rear Main Seal Leaking

Hello, it's not "easy" but, it's doable.
You'll need to follow the instructions and don't take shortcuts. ask for help if you need it.
Use this link to get an idea of what is involved. Ignore the "remove transmission" part. It can be done without removing the tranny. If you decide to do this buy a service manual to help you. If you have any questions feel free to ask.

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 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.

SOURCE: MISFIRING ON CYLINDER 1 VW POLO 1.4 3CYLINDER

I have changed a few cylinder heads under warranty for this type of problem. The exhaust valve guides wear, this causes the exhaust valve to seat badly, giving low compression. if one cylinder compresion reading is more than about 50 psi below the others, then this warrants head removal. It is quite a job, due to the fact that the camshft id chain driven. If you are up for it then once the head is removed, poor liquid into the exhaust ports and see if it leaks out through any of the exhaust valves.

My 96 vw polo developed a large oil leak on the drivers side of the engine around lowest pulley wheel is it the oil seal ?


i dont think its the oil seal check the oil pressure light switch ,i am assuming its a RHD model a the engine pulley would be on this side on a RHD vehicle ,now if its the engine model iam thinking of then the oil switch is at the top of the engine on the cylinder head about 3 inches back from the cam gear wheel ,failing which it could be the head gasket as the oil feed to the head is here as well

Simple answer: No. Polos and Golfs use different mechanical components.

More complicated answer: If there is that much damage then the bodyshell mountings are also quite likely to be distorted which will make any repair attempt futile. Ideally you must get the damaged parts stripped off and then get the mounting points accurately measured. This can only be done using specialised measuring equipment. The alternative is to invest in the parts needed for your repair and to fit them with an immediate alignment check at the nearest suitably equipped garage. If the alignment of the body is off then the car is effectively a write off as repairs will exceed the car value.

Water coming in drivers mat area 2006 vw passat 2.0 tdi


Hi

Common fault with VW's firstly check the door seal at the bottom and make sure it is not wet inside.

Next place is under the bonnet, just under the windscreen below the wipers you will see a long tray the "skuttle panel" leafs and muck build up in here where the drain plugs are once they get blocked the water starts coming in the car from behind the dash board. You should be able to see the problem visibly and it should be easy to clean.

I had this on a golf about 2mths ago, and a polo a while ago and also on a few passats.

Regards

Dan
