Hey man,sorry to hear about your wife.Vehicles with alot of miles that lose oil from the rear main seal is practical,but if its blowing out alot and your having to add alot of oil,thats not good.Anti freeze should not come out of the rear seal,it just isnot possible.Maybe the antifreeze is leaking from a hose,pipe or cyl. head and is leaking down in that same area as the oil leak.If your losing alot of anti freeze you need to have it checked.Antifreeze can enter the eng.oil if you have a blown head gasket.This could be a costly fix at a garage.You could get a estimate to see what youll be getting into and if its to much to fix you could think about purchasing a more dependable vehicle with less issues for your family.Its only a idea.if you have any questions let me know.Best wishes to you and your family.John.

Unfortunatly, that is what it sounds like to me, unless its leaking and running down from somewhere else

How do I remove my fly wheel?

This is not an easy job and requires a substantial amount of knowledge. you will also need a decent floor jack or a transmission jack. The transmission must be pulled or slid back to get the flywheel off the engine. The first thing is to take the transmission dust cover off or in some cases the starter. The starter needs to come out anyway. This will reveal the torque converter bolts. You can use a pry-bar to turn the flywheel around so you can get to each torque converter bolts. The other option is to turn the crank with a socket and breaker bar from the front of the engine/harmonic balancer. Then you must drop the transmission or if you can slide it back enough to reach the flywheel bolts mounted to the crank. Once you remove the center bolts in the flywheel it should drop out.

I have a clacking noise upon acceleration or neutral idle. It appears to be coming from the transmission. What could be causing this?

I would check your flywheel rise the front of the suburban to get under it make sure for safty you put jack stands under it where the engine oil pan meets the transmission there is a cover you can remove there is four bolts that hold it on with a flash light look at the center of the fly wheel the crank might look like dirt markings if it is the transmission need to come out to replace the fly wheel too much to explain how to remove the flywheel it would be better to take it to a garrage or a transmission shop

My nissan x-trail leaks with engine oil underneath between the engine and the transmission when it's running, what seems to be the problem?

Not familiar with this model. What year? It is probably the rear main seal of the engine between the engine and transmission. It will probably require removing the transmission and flex plate (if automatic trans) or fly wheel (if manual trans). Pretty big job. You will need clutch alignment tools if it is a manual trans.
Hope this helps. Good luck!

I heard a knocking the other day and now it died! Here is what some people have said the noise wheel on transmission, rod knocking. I have checked all fluids and they are fine. Any ideas?

Fly wheel will not cause a knock. Knocking may be caused by insufficient oil supply within the engine. This may be caused by a failed oil pump, excessive sludge build-up, faulty rod or main bearings. Did you notice the oil light for flickering or being lit while driving?? Is the engine able to spin when you are starting it??

How hard is it to replace the rear maine oil seal on a 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee 5.2 liter V8 4 wheel drive

There is some work involve in replacing rear main seal, seal sit in the rear of the engine block, the transmission will have to be remove, and the fly wheel to get to the rear main seal.If you have never removed a engine or transmission, it might be best to pay and have some one do it for you.

Cant get fly wheel off . Droped trans & have fly wheel exposed...6 bolts, And they wont come off.

Soak in penetrating oil and remove bolts using air line. If no access to air tools then use breaker bar with constant pressure (no not bounce)

If no joy then you wheel need to heat the flywheel - if you have to do this replace the rear main seal aswel.

Removed and replace the oil pan gasket on 96 Honda accord

Yes it is possible if the oil pan is making contact with the fly wheel or the dust shield that's between the transmission and the oil pan. Take off shield and check with engine running make sure that vehicle is on a lift that's locked or on secure jack stands NOT with a jack alone. Good Luck
