SOURCE: 360 ci Dodge Rear Main Bearing Seal Replacement

Yes ,regardless of which seal is used as you have to loosen main bearings so the crank can be moved down as the seals are crush type and you wont have the clearance to fit the new one,Split seals (2 piece)are the easiest to fit without moving the crank too much.The one piece seal also means trans removal.As far as removing trans completely you may be able to move it back while its being held up by a trolley jack and only pull it back far enough to give you the clearance needed.Autos are far easier than manuals.If its the rope type seal a special tool is used to fit them and its not a tool that is sold just anywhere as that type of seal kept noahs ark from sinking and havnt been used in engines for many many years.

SOURCE: how do you replace a ignigtion lock cylinder on a 1998 dodge

REMOVAL: 

NOTE: The Supplemental Inflatable Restraint (SIR) system must be disarmed before removing any components in the area of the air bag system. Failure to do so may cause accidental deployment of the air bag, resulting in unnecessary SIR system repairs and/or personal injury. 

Disconnect and isolate the negative battery cable from the battery. 
Allow the SIR system capacitor to discharge for at least 2 minutes, before performing any removal procedures. The air bag system is now disabled. 

Remove the key cylinder (ignition lock). 
Using a No. 10 Torx® tamper proof bit, remove the ignition switch mounting screw. Depress the ignition switch retaining tab and carefully pry the ignition switch from the steering column. 
Disconnect the electrical connectors from the ignition switch and remove the switch from the vehicle. 

INSTALLATION: 
Be sure the ignition switch is in the RUN position and the actuator shaft in the ignition lock housing is in the RUN position. 
Reconnect the electrical connectors to the ignition switch. 
Carefully install the ignition switch, making sure the ignition switch snaps over the retaining tabs. 
Install and tighten the ignition switch mounting screw. 
Install the key cylinder (ignition lock). Complete the installation by reversing the removal procedures. 
Reconnect the negative battery cable. 
Check switch operation. 

Good Luck and hope this helps

Rear window with slider leaks


Depends on where it leaked at . If you have a slider than can be the seal on it , or if whole back window then you could have a bad seal or a rusty area beside the rubber seal that would need fixed . If neither then a seal is most likely your problem . Some people puts alot of vasaline on them to make them swell to see if it still leaks and others just do a small cut on clear caulking then lift the rubber up and trace around the window and clean up any that sqeezed out but my preferance is to remove the back window and look for rust and fix it right the first time .

95 avenger transmission leaking


is it the same seal? it sounds like something was not installed good, or a burr on the axle, i would get a second look at another garage to see exactly whats going on, then take it back to the shop that rebuilt it, if it the same seal it could be a defective axle, good luck hope this helps.

Have you checked the fluid level? perhaps the filter is plugged...if mileage is over 100,000 it may be time for a rebuild or replace

Where do I add transmission fluid on a manual 1999 dodge avenger?


On cars with a manual transmission, there is one and sometimes two removable bolts near the bottom of the transmission (underneath the car) If it has two bolts then the bottom bolt will need to be removed to drop the old fluid out...after all of the fluid (most of the time it is 80W-90 gear oil but sometimes it could be regular motor oil (dependes on the make and model of the car) is removed then seal up the bottom bolt and openthe top bolt and fill it back up (check your owners manual to see how much oil it will need to refill it)...If there is only one removable bolt then open it, drain it all out, and using a hand pump (sold at most auto stores) pump the gear oil or motor oil (check your owners manual for the specs) back into the hole and when the fluid starts to run out of that hole, quickly reseal it to lock the fluid inside the transmission...make sure you wear gloves and safety glasses to keep the oils off your skin

Transaxel leaks transmission fluid


was the seal put in correctly. there is a certain way that a seal must be installed. generally i like to bake sure that there are no burrs on the shaft that slides through the seal. also the rubber part of the seal is usualy dry and they should have given you seal grease to soften it up before installation. did you use a seal driver to install the seal? trying to just tap it in with just a hammer will usually damage it and then it will leak. double check to make sure it was the right seal it's been known to happen that you go and buy a seal and you get home and it's the wrong one. i'm sure the problem is a a mis installed seal. unfortunately when you remove the seal you will not be able to reuse it due to the damage . you will have to purchase another one. hope this helps. please rate this solution....thanks
