There is no common oi leak problem with the 3.0, oil leaks are very rare of any kind, I work for a ford dealer see hundreds of 3.0's all the time.

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.

THat seems to be in the ball park. If you have an AWD, the flat rate time is 14.4 hours. If you have just a FWD, it is 9.5 hours. In either case, the transmission has to be removed from the vehicle to access this seal. Sorry.

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.

SOURCE: leaking rear main seal.

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.

I have done many the transmisson has to come out to replace it but your price is way out of line, should not be more than $400.00 give me a zip and I can get you a certified shop that can do it for less with a warrenty.

Where is the most common place for oil leak


The front and rear main seals will cause a significant oil leak or even the valve covers. I pressure washed mine really well then kept a eye on the leaks and it was a front main seal not easy to replace because you have to remove all the intercoolers and radiator then u have to seat the seal perfectly or it will leak again

Oil leak on driveway coming from front of engine


Dear Sir,
Here is the oil leaking Problem Identifying Technique

Engine oil leaks from the valve cover gasket are common.

  • The intake manifold plenum gasket may leak and cause increased oil consumption/burning and a spark knock during acceleration; the gasket should be replaced.
  • External oil leaks from valve cover gaskets, intake gaskets (front or rear), and the rear crankshaft (rear main) seal area are common. The rear main seal is an unlikely source. Normally, the bearing cap mating surfaces (as well as the sealing surface between the oil pan and bearing cap) are the source for the leaks.
  • Engine oil leaks at the distributor can be misdiagnosed as leaks from theintake manifold seal, oil pan gasket, or rear crankshaft (rear main) seal. A revised distributor is available if oil is found inside the distributor.
  • If the oil filter casing shows signs of distortion from excessive oil pressure, theoil pump should be replaced.
  • Often misdiagnosed as a leaking oil filter gasket, the oil filter adapter can seep from between the adapter and engine block.
  • Carbon buildup on the top of the piston is common. As the buildup increases with mileage and over time, symptoms may vary from light ticking, to ticking/hammering, to hammering/knocking noises. Fuel injector cleaner often solves the problem.

    Oil leaking from toyota camry 1992, 1994 model


    You don't say what engine it has. The 4-cyl was a better than the V6 for oil leaks.

    The V6 had oil leaks from

    -rear bank cam cover gasket

    -distributor o-ring seal

    -oil filter bracket o-ring seal

    -crankshaft nose oil seal (less common)

    -rear main bearing oil seal (expensive, just leave it)

    The 4 cyl leaked oil from

    -distributor o-ring seal

    -camshaft cover gasket

    -rear main bearing seal (expensive, leave it)

    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!

    Rear main seal Ford 1995 Econoline E-150 Repair Manual


    I doubt the manual would help on this issue. FIRST, be certain it is the rear main seal. EVERYTHING that leaks winds up there...Way more common is intake and valve cover leaks, and they drip at rear main area...

    If rear main is the issue, you have to pull the trans for access.

    Oil leak from my engine rear main seal


    A more common leak is the oil filter adapter,so here is an inspection trick to find your leak.lower or remove the flywheel cover and look at the side of the flywheel that faces forward.Is it dry and slightly rusted or oil soaked?If it's dry the adapter is leaking.If it's wet the oil pan,rear main or oil pressure sender, intake or distributor sealing could be the problem.Use a GM o-ring&gasket if you seal the adapter...better o-ring will last longer.The rear main seal is pretty good on these engines,if it is leaking you may also have a worn rear bearing (or more bearings) which lets the crankshaft vibrate and wobble so that a new seal may still leak.If there are multiple leaks or just a big mess,UV dye and a black light are very useful in pin pointing the worst leak.

    Rear main seal leaks..does this affect transmission??


    A leaking rear main seal will not cause your transmission to leak.

    The transmission has its own seal and should not leak because of the engine rear main seal.

    Due to the labor involved in replacing the rear main seal on the engine, it is best if you replace the front transmission seal at the same time if possible.

    Installation varies on different vehicles but the principles are the same.
