1999 ford expedition - rear main seal leaking

My rear main seal is leaking and my mechanic says he needs a picture of it. I don'r know where to look one up, I've tried google and yahoo searches and no luck. I understand that once the tranny is out it right there but will it be simple to fix? Is it hard to take out the transmission?

I don't know why your mechanic needs a picture of the seal. Here is what you will need to do. The tranny will need to be removed because your vehicle has a one piece real seal. After you remove the tranny remove the flywheel then you have access to the rear main seal. If you have never removed a tranny leave it to someone capable of the job. You will need many tools to remove the tranny and a little muscle here and there. It is an easy process for a mechanic, but labor intensive.

How to remove rear wheel bearings on my 1999 Ford Expedition and how do i know what pulley to rent/buy?


The 1999 Ford Expedition is built on an F150 platform. The Expedition uses a 9.75-inch rear axle. The axles are retained with C-clips at the end of the axle shaft, inside the differential carrier. The axle bearings are of the roller type. A failed axle bearing can manifest itself as a noise at the rear wheel or gear oil leaking past the oil seal. When replacing axle bearings, the oil seals must also be replaced.
Torque the caliper mounting bolts to 30 foot-pounds. Torque the bolt to 20 foot-pounds with a torque wrench and socket.

I have had my rear main seal replaced 3 times and it is still leaking. Could this leak be coming from somewhere else? The first mechanic assumed it was the rear main seal, and the others I informed them...


First off i would hope that there was some waranty coverage for this repair.

Is the fluid leak indeed oil (black/brown)? If so that would be the rear main. Problem could be the surface around the seal on the engine has a defect or space.

If the fluid leak is a reddish color this is transmission fluid and would be the torque convertor leaking not the rear main.

Good Luck!

My mechanic said that I have leaking into my passenger side rear wheel and that my brake calipers need to be replaced; or if I'm lucky it's just a line leaking. i've never had a problem with the brakes...


more then likely the seals will need replacing, cost about a couple of bucks for the piston rubbers. when you change them hit it with a hammer

I just bough a used 99 ford expedition. i just noticed there is a leak under the car in the back somewhat between the two back tires, what type of leak is this


3 types of fluids back there.

1. gear lube in the differential.
2. brake fluid in the brake lines (pedal would be sinking if brake line broke open).
3. fuel from the fuel tank (you would probably smell it).

Most likely your driveshaft seal is leaking where the driveline enters the differential. If you have more questions or need instructions, please let me know.

93 explorer dripping oil over night from bottom of car


clean the srea and watch, tracing back to the source. The oil can leak from the front seal, rear main seal,Pan gaske, or come from the top of engine. Chances are greater it's coming from the front because of fan draft. good luck

Rear main seal


THE REAR MAIN IS WHAT IS CALLED A FULL CIRCLE SEAL, SO YES THE TRANS AND FLYWHEEL MUST BE REMOVED, U WILL ALSO NEED THE SPECIAL FORD SEAL INSTALLER, WITHOUT IT THE SEAL WILL MOST LIKELY LEAK SOONER AFTER INSTALLATION.

Transmition


well the seal itself is not too costly and all you have to do is drop the drive shaft from the trans, remove the dust boot and remove the seal it won't take but 1/2 to remove and replace the seal
