Replacement is pretty difficult, but if you go to advance auto parts, (cheap trick) you can buy "rear main seal repair" it works. I used it on my dodge dakota, and the leak only persisted for about a week, and was fine after that. Worth a shot, a new seal is very hard to install. You have to basically pull the entire motor up and out to reach it for one, then, setting the seal is just a pain.

2000 camero leak is this a better video? 3800 series 2 v6


Hopefully what you have shown is behind the water pump and the leak is water and not oil. If it is water you need to replace the water pump and its seal, if not, the engine will require much more detailed tear down. Get yourself a Haynes repair manual for your 2000 Camaro V6 at your local auto parts store and check out the engine parts locations.

How do I install the rear transmission seal on a 1996 gmc sierra 3500 5 speed manual transmission?


For the rear seal, remove the drive shaft, and the seal should be very visible there. Very fortunate, as this is the easiest and cheapest seal there is to replace! Be extremely careful installing the new one, if using a hammer or similar installation item. If it isn't seated properly the leak will continue. Good luck.

How do I tell if my rear main seal is leaking in my 96 Buick regal


1. Are you losing oil? Have you been told this seal is leaking? This seal is located between the engine and transmission connection. This seal will be soaken wet with oil if failing. Your motor is probably the GM 3800 V-6...this motor is not known for excessive rear seal problems. Hope this helps.

Rear engine oil leak....


Oil leak can be attributed to several factors.
1. Gasket failure.
2. Uncontrolled Crank case pressure Failure.

RECOMENDATION:
Tighten both the valve cover and oil pan bolts.
Replace the Positive Crankcase Ventilation Valve and vacuum line.,

INFO: PCV
This is a valve causes a negative vacuum on the engine while its running, As to say if it had a leak in a valve cover it should not be leaking while its running, only when the engine it turned off.

Hope this tip guides you in the correct direction to solve this problem.

My toyota vienta 3VZ-FE 1996 - oil leak onto exhaust


Hi,

That engine will leak oil from

- cam cover gaskets (rear one drips on the exhaust)
- camshaft end seals
- distributor shaft o-ring (appears on top of transaxle housing)
- oil filter bracket to block o-ring seal (drips on front bank exhaust)
- crankshaft nose oil seal (have done with timing belt change)
- rear main seal (expensive, leave it be)

Fluid leak from the seal between the transmission and engine about a drip every 5 seconds when running


would suspect that it is a rear main oil seal in the engine...not good and costly to repair since the engine and transmission need to be seperated for a 10 dollar part. is it oil that is leaking?

Manual Transmission Filter?


The Borg Warner T-5 manual transmission has no filter. Assuming the leak is not really the rear main seal of the engine leaking, which is more likely, then it leaking from the front of the transmission. You will need to drop the transmission to get to the front seal on the first motion shaft. Unless you are really mechanically inclined or have a friend who is, leave it to a good shop.
