2003 Ford Escape transmission leak. 175 K miles. Tranny rebuilt at 120 K miles. It appears to be leaking where the tranny bolts to the engine. I've checked the axels and transmission pan and all...

This is quite tricky, the oil leak can be only due to a failure of the OIl seal or that the bearings after being worn out can damage the oil sealing.
So it is best that the unit be taken out in the engine side to be probed.
Now since the leak is more when the engine runs it is better to take down the unit for an overhaul , confirm and then replace the seal / bearings.

1979 ford F100 diff seal leaking do u have to replace the brg or can u just replace the seal

Just replace the seal. BUT, as the bearing is exposed, hook it out, and inspect the Bearing Rollers.
If OK, Install the new seal, Lube the Seal inner dimension. Torque the bearing Input shaft Yolk to the correct torque loading. Drain and Refill the DIFF. OIL.

Regards, DT.

Saw a small amount of oil on my garage floor (2004) Boxster took it in and was told that I need to replace the rear main seal as well as intermediate bearing - Total costs will be $4,000 the car has 26,500...

Well, there several ways that I know to handle this.
FIRST: Don't go back there.

If you only have 26,500 miles on a car that is now 7 years old, you are not using it very much.
I don't even consider your car as broken in.
The assertion that the car needs a new bearing in the engine sounds to me as though the technician had the apparition of the angel of money appear in front of him while working on your wallet (I mean Porsche).

SECOND: The usage on your car is so low that, if you took it on a trip, the leak might very well
stop completely, on it's own.

THIRD: There is an excellent bottle of leak stopper sold at Walmart that handles rear main bearing seals. It costs about $3,994.00 less then your previous estimate. I used it on a really serious front main bearing oil leak (usually this sort of product won't work well on front main bearings) on my 23 year Mercedes with 166,000 miles.
I hope this helps,
Best Regards,

93 Ford Festiva wheel bearing job - any surprises?

No, the front wheel bearings are relatively easy to replace on the Festiva. They just knock out and press back in. I recently replaced the front bearings and all (4) struts on mine and it went well.

2001 Ford Ranger SRS brakeks and bearing problems

Your truck has sealed bearings in the front but they can go bad after several miles. If the truck is not stopping straight or you are getting a pulse through the break pedal (and sometimes a shimmy in the steering) then it's time to replace the rotors and pads. If the truck is stopping and driving fine then I wouldn't worry about it.

Rear axle berrings

Tools needed- typical socket and ratchet set, Axle slide hammer, Wiz Wheel type rotary cut off tool, chisel, ball pein hammer, hydraulic press, bech vice
First you must remove the rear wheels, then you must remove the brake capiler and mounting bracket, remove the brake rotor. unbolt 4 nuts on back side of brake dust shield that hold the seal and bearing securly in place. then you must attatch the slide hammer to the axle shaft by using the vehicles lug studs and lug nuts. use the slide hammer to knock the axle shaft out of the housing. it generally takes about 10-15 hard slams before it comes loose. once axle shaft is free to come out remove the slide hammer and pull the shaft from the axle tube. place the axle shaft into a vise and use the cut off wheel to cut off the bearing spacer. cut parralell to shaft until you hear a snap sound once it snaps use the hammer to slide the spacer off the end of the shaft. next you need to cut the bearing off the shaft using a the same technique being careful not the cut the shaft or the seal retainer plate. once the bearing is off then you can slide off the old axle seal. now slide on a new axle seal, axle bearing, and bearing spacer. take assembly to a hydraulic press and press the spacer and bearing onto the shaft until it seats squarely and make sure its all the way down onto the axle shaft. lubricate bearing with gear oil. and install shaft back into axle tube making sure that the recess in the seal retainer plate lines up with the abs sensor wire. tighten all nuts evenly top off gear oil
