Question about 1991 Honda Accord
How do I go about replacing the rear main seal? does engine and tranny need pulled or can I get to it w/out having to?
Well, they need separating to get to the seal, so if the transmission can be removed without pulling them both out at once, you could do the seal with the engine in the car and the transmission removed. Buy a Haynes repair manual and see if transmission can be removed with the engine in the car. You will need a manual, anyway, for either procedure-either engine and transmission together out of the car, and then separated, or the transmission alone removed.

they don't use gaskets on oil sumps its sealant glue and yes u will have to reapply it when you put the sump back on, and what do u mean by main seal? do you mean the head gasket?

If a seal is bad yes it will leak. You will have to check with a Honda dealership for accurate warranty information.

SOURCE: transmission oil leaking at main
standard TQF transmission oil if an auto ,EP90 if a manual gearbox ,do not attempt to change seals yourself as this is extremely complicated ,try putting in a tin of transmission leak stopper if an auto as the front seal on the gearbox/torque converter is the main culprit ,but it could also be the torque converter itself where the vanes are welded in although this is a rare occurance ,now only place that sell the seals is the honda dealer and they dont sell them only a complete exchange gearbox so if you do remove the gearbox to change this seal then go to a auto factor where they will measure the old seal and find you a new one the same size ,i cannot get auto gearbox spàres hardly at all here in spain for any make of car .

SOURCE: leak from the rear main seal
There's only one way to fix it and that is to replace it. This requires separating the engine and transmission and lowering the oil pan. It is best left to a mechanic. hope this helps.
