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: How to replace rear freeze plug

You will have to pull the trans to get to the freeze plug. Take a punch and knock one side of the plug in then pull the rest of the plug out with plires.Take sand paper and clean the hole, Apply permatex sealant around the new plug, and drive it in with a socket that will just fit inside the freeze plug. You should replace them both while you are there. Good Luck

SOURCE: cost to replace rear main seals on 2001 jeep gr. cher. ltd.

Actually yeah you are in luck that combination only requires dropping the oil pan. The seal is actually fairly easy to do it yourself, if your inclined. Parts about $20.00 and it's book rate is 5 hours. around here shops charge around $85/hour. About $500.00 out the door or under $50.00 if you want to get greasy. Here's a good picture guided step by step on a Jeep CJ with a 4.0 liter, yours is pretty much the same:

SOURCE: i need to replace the rear main seal on my 95

Yes, either pull the trans or pull the engine. No way to get in there with out having one of the two out!
FYI it's very rare for a rear main on that engine to leak, Most all of the time it's the oil pan gasket or coming from higher up like a valve cover or the intake gaskets!

Why do I have oil in my breaks of my 1996 Chevy


if your talking about the rear brakes its probably the differential axle seal that is leaking differential oil out of the rear end onto the brake shoes. you will have to pull the rear axle to replace the seal and clean the rear brakes/area with brake cleaner or replace the rear brakes if they are too soaked with brake fluid.

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.

I was told I have to replace the crankshaft seal and oil pan gasket on my 2000 chevy malibu and will cost approx. $380.00. Also is the rear main seal the same thing as the crankshaft seal??? Thanks!


Well sometimes.... the front crankshaft seal is usually called a crank seal, or the front timing cover seal but the rear crank seal is (usually) called the Rear Main crank seal. In order to replace the rear seal , the transmission will need to be removed. If its the front, then the harmonic balancer will be removed. $380 sounds cheap. As you will need a oil seal, oil pan gasket, oil, filter, labor and tax. Maybe even a lower engine mount.

Rear main seal oil leak on 3.0 v6 ford ranger/ qiuck fix??


You can do this at home, but you will need to remove the transmission to gain access to the rear main seal. The seals in the newer engines are a one piece seal, and the only way to replace them is to remove the tranny and the flywheel or flex plate to gain access to the retaining cover to the seal. A lot of work. But, if you can do it yourself you will save yourself lots of money. Labor to perform this repair will be high as it requires more time to assemble and disassemble than to actually replace the seal itself.
