Diagram rear main seal


Don't need a diagram, you have to pull the transmission to replace the seal. It is the seal in the engine block that goes around the crankshaft output to the transmission.

How to replace a rear main seal in a 2001 chevy 2500


several things, the rear main seal is accessable by removing the transmission. if this vehicle is standard transmission, then would recomend new clutch at this time given the amount of labor involved. if automatic, remove drive shafts, transfer case, transmission, and flexplate ....replace rear main. approx 5 hrs.

How to replace backing plates on rear of 2001 silverado


You will have to pull the axles to remove the backing plates.Loosen the differential cover until most of the fluid drains,remove the cover.Rotate the diff until you can get at the small bolt that retains the spider gear pin.Remove the pin,push the axles in,remove the C-clips.You can now slide the axles out.(You might as well replace the axle seals while you're at it).If you clean the cover and diff housing thoroughly,you can put a small bead of silicone gasket maker to reinstall it.

I have an 83 silverado short bed and im about to pull the tranny out to get it rebuilt and the rear main seal may be leaking as i put oil in and it leaks out pretty fast. my tranny is covered in oil and so...


I'm fairly certain that your engine does not have a full circle external main seal (if when you remove the trans and flywheel you find the rear crank flange is bolted to the crank and not part of the crank, then I'm wrong) If it's not an external seal, it is two piece, located in the rear of the main bearing cap. That makes it necessary to remove the engine oil pan and the rear bearing. Before contemplating doing anything with that, make very sure that the leak is not from the intake or valve covers first. Otherwise you'd be doing ton of work for no reason. Wipe everything down and look carefully. If it's leaking fast it shouldn't be difficult to see.

Rear main seal on a 2001 2500 hd gas


pull the transmission, and change the seal. Either that or you can change the PCV valve, and stop the crankcase from building up the pressure that is pushing the oil out of the rear seal.
Chnging the seal is a $1200 job, and changing the PCV costs about $15.. Take your pick. If you opt for the rear seal, and don't do the PCV.. Don't come crying to me when it is still leaking.

How do I replace the rear main seal in a 2001 2500hd 6.0 liter? Do i have to pull the tranny or is it a two piece seal?


You must pull the transmission. GM has not made a 2-piece seal in probably the last 30 years.
