SOURCE: Need details for final steps of rear main seal

This may not be the "official" way to do this but I've always put white lube on the crank journal where the seal rides. I also put a dab of black rtv sealant on the ends of the seal (small amount only) If you don't put lube on the seal it can overheat and burn before lube from the engine gets to it. Silicone dab will join the two deal halves to prevent any seepage there. Don't permit silicone to dry before assembly.
Been doing it this way for years and never had a leak.
I never replace the seal without removing the crankshaft either...Most replacements done that way are at best a 50/50 bet at working.

I have an oil leak between the rear of the engine and the transmission bell housing what parts do i need and how can i get a repair manuel


Unless it's coming from the valve cover down, this is the rear main seal. Generally, you'll have to remove the starter, axle(s), linkage & transaxle, then the flywheel to expose the seal. It is mounted in an aluminum bracket that bolts to the engine around the crankshaft to hold the bearing and help to provide the proper sealing to that area. While you are there, you should consider replacing any seal in that area to prevent the need of pulling the trans again.

If you do that, you'll remove the entire bracket & be able to easily remove the rear main seal.

The seal can also be pulled out where it is if you are careful, by using a couple of sharp screws & tapping into the center of the seal, away from either edge so as not to damage the housing or the crankshaft, then pulling the seal out. I use 2 screws as a rule & predrill with a low speed drill making sure not to touch anything but the center of the "hard" area between the 2 surfaces. A bent tip on a screwdriver can also provide you with a means to pull the seal. Either works, you just have to be sure not to scratch the crank or the aluminum bracket that holds the seal.

This method eliminates the need for replacing other gaskets in that area.

Parts: Rear Main Seal (set) includes the paper seal. Consider the Trans main/input seal, you are there and the method for replacing it is very similar, pop it out & push another back in. You'll need RTV for the paper seal if you do replace it.

As far as the manual, there's more than one type & place to get them, including on-line. If you go to one of the parts stores like Autozone, they will provide you access online to vehicle specific repair info if you just take a minute to register. Pep--boys has a multitude of manuals for most vehicles.

good luck.

How to replace a fuel filter for a Mitsubishi Mirage 2000


There is pressure...you have to remove the rear seat cushion,then remove the service cover and then detach the fuel pump harness connector.Start the car and allow it to run until the engine stalls.Turn the key to off position.Then disconnect the negative battery cable, attach the fuel pump connector, and install the access cover. Now place shop rags or towels around the fitting that is being disconnected. Loosen the filter feed pipe flare nut on the bottom of the filter.Seperate the flare nut from the filter. If equiped, remove and discard the gakets. remove the mounting bolts and remove the filter.if necessary remove the filter bracket. To install: install the filter to it's bracket only finger tight. Make sure the flow arrow is in the right direction. Make sure new O rings are installed prior to installation. Insert the filter feed pipe to the lower connection of the filter and manually screw in the main pipe's fare nut. While holding the fuel filter nut with a back-up wrench, tighten the banjo bolt to 22 ft pounds and tighten the flare nut to 25 with a back-up wrench on the nut. tighten the filter mounting bolts to 10 ft. pounds. Connect negative battery cable. turn key on to pressurize the fuel system and check for leaks. If repairs on the fuel system are needed remember to release the pressure before opening the fuel system. Hope this helps. Good luck!

I think mabe you have to much oil pressure . over fill maybe or next time put one on use oil to coat the seal then slide it on oil will help it to swell.
