Question about 1997 Dodge Intrepid
Technician said we have an oil leak coming from "crank" in our 1997 dodge intrepid. not sure if he meant crank shaft or what but me being female, you could say something about a harmonic balancer and i wouldn't know that from a tie rod. :) if we (my husband who knows more about cars than i do... but not this issue) wanted to fix this problem ourselves what would we need to do?
There are two main oil seal's on the crank,
1, Is behind the bottom pull, at the front of the engine. you will have disconnect the battery leads then the oil will have to be drained. After that you jack the car up and support the car with axle stand's. If the down pipe from the exhaust is directly under the engine sump? take it off.
Undo the pin's on the sump and any pipe's connected, next take the bottom pulley off.
Thats one seal.
2, You will have to take the transmission off, then the clutch and the flywheel. To get to the second one.
It will be hard. Good Luck!!
