SOURCE: oil leak on main seal

Well those are hard to do it by yourself so I suggest you go to your auto repair shop and have them do it. Of course you can go to different shops so you can see the difference in pricing if any.

SOURCE: 1997 Prado v6 3.4ltr rear main seal oil leak. Can

Motor out is not needed.
You need to disconnect the drive shafts, put a jack under the back of the motor, and put a trolley jack under the box before you undo it.
You do not say if it is auto or manual, removing the box is slightly different depending on which one you have.

Face the trolley jack so it can roll backwards easily, remove anything that may be stopping the box coming down and back. eg: exhausts, gear linkages/stick ( from in the cab if manual)
reverse and neutral light wires, oil cooler pipes.

You will need to lower the box with a couple of easily accessible bolts still in place at the bell housing. Do this slowly with someone watching the engine fan to radiator gap etc, and make sure you do not do more damage getting it out.
Now set both jacks to take equal weight, making sure the box is balanced and secured to the trolley jack before you undo the last bolts.
It is all about balance, alignment and going very slowly with the separation.
Do not rush it. Be very slow and calm. Sudden movements can bend the gearbox shaft, damage your torque converter, or worse, trap you.
When everything is right and secure, you will be able to shake the box by hand and pull it back.
You may have to adjust the height of either or both jacks to take it out cleanly, being very careful of how much you allow the back of the motor to drop and what it may contact or stretch and break as you do so.
Take care and work safe. :)

The oil pressure switch is located on top at the
transmission end of the engine.
If the switch is leaking, it could appear to be coming
from the places you mentioned. Hope this helps.
Good luck

2001 mpv v6 consumed a liter of oil every 1000 km and there is no oil leak

Bummer Lito, the next areas are valve stem seals and then rings.

Pull the oil cap while the engine is idling. High pressure is blow-by from the rings. Low pressure, look at stem seals.

I have a nissan 1400 champ and is leaking oil on the front part of the manual 5 speed gearbox and the rear part of the gearbox. I have replaced the crankshaft oil seal but i still have oil leaking on

There are seals on the front and rear of the transmission. If the clutch wasn't covered in engine oil, then replacing the crankshaft seal wasn't necessary. Reseal the transmission.

Why would I have oil in where my flywheel is and

Give more information. What car, what year model? If there is oil where the flywheel is, chances are you have a leaking rear main bearing oil seal or leaking gear box primary shaft oil seal. Coil packs? They should be there to make the car go.

There is an oil seal on the gearbox/transaxle input shaft. If this has failed it will leak oil on to the clutch.It might be able to be replaced by just removing the gearbox again to access the seal. Most likely though is, the gearbox will need to be opened up to replace it.

Leaking oil from between the engine and gearbox

The distributor is located right atop the trans and engine, it can leak oil and appear to be a main seal leak.

Otherwise, you have a bad crank seal if its oil, and bad trans seal if its trans fluid. In these cases the trans or engine has to be broken apart from one another.

You better hope for a leaky distributor, or even a leaky intake gasket by the distributor.

My 1995 Geo Metro 1.3 L leaks a lot of transmission oil. What is the problem?

Faulty oil seal, simple as that, where it is will be for a garage to find.

There are three main oil seals, one each side of the gearbox (CV driveshaft seals) and the other which requires gearbox removal is the torque converter to gearbox oil seal. Hope its not that one!!

PS = I trust the gearbox level is correct and NOT overfilled as this will also happen,. Has anyone recently topped up trans and spilled fluid??
