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.

This sounds like the crank seal, the engine doesnt have to be removed, in order to get to seal is like replacing the ttiming belt, and once in the timing belt i would replace the crank and cam seals, also do the timing belt, and maybe the waterpump, you will need to remove the crank pulley and then the timing covers then align timing marks for timing belt before ou remove it, with timing belt off the crank pulley then slides off the crankshaft and the seal is behind it, the cam shaft gear unbolts and the seal is behind the gear, once the gears are off then you will be able to remove the seals from the engine,heres a few diagrams to help. good luck and i hope this is helpful,60d826b.gifca916fa.gifcb2cb5a.gif

SOURCE: Rear Main Seal Leak

To replace the seal, the mechanic will have to either lift the engine or lower the transmission. You will get much better pricing going to a transmission shop (e.g. AAMCO) and getting a quote from them to replace the seal.

Instrructions on replacing a rear main seal on 2004 kia rio


Oil leaking "in" your valve cover? Where is the oil at/coming from? And, to answar your question, rear main seal is a real job! Requires removing transmission, flex plate/fly wheel! It is the crank shaft seal, on the "rear" of the engine!

I have a Kia carnival 2004 auto. The seal from the gear box to the cv joint was replaced because the oil was leaking. The oil leaked again a few hrs. Could the seal be a fault ?


it could have been installed incorrectly
try and see if there is any up and down movement in the axle shaft at the transmission end
there is normally a bush there and if that is worn then the seal will not work around a shaft that is flopping around

Oil is leaking, how can I tell if engine main


You don't give make or model. Here goes , The engine has a rear maim seal behind the fly wheel if it leaks the leak will be from the clutch housing. It has a front seal behind the crank shaft timing cover.it can leak from there . it can leak from the oil filter and oil pressure switch . Can also leak from the top timing cover gasket and cam shaft seals.

The leak seems to be coming from the shaft holding the pulley


Presuming you are talking about an oil leak from behind a pulley? All shafts as they exit the engine, have an oil seal fitted in the case and supply a tight seal to the shaft, if oil is leaking the seal is worn and needs replacing. depending on what the pulley is driving (cam belt), it could be a big job.

there is only one way to track down an oil leak, you must pressure wash the engine top and bottom, then you drive it a day or so and look under the engine and on top for the source of the leak, common area's to leak are oil pressure sending units, valve covers, oil pans, rear main seal of crank shaft and front cover seal of engine.

The Drive Shaft?! If it is the Drive Shaft it is an Easy Fix. You will need to Remove the Drive Shaft and Replace the Seal that is at the Very Rear of the Tranny. Check the Tranny Fluid. Tranny fluid should be your Leak. The Fluid is Red Right?
