    Crankshaft sensor in that area? If yes, check for damage or unplugged by mistake.

Leaking oil fro the bottom front I had the motor changed and they say its the main seal . But i want to do it myself


Its likley the Crank seal, also called front main ( rear main being the end that meets the transmission.

Its pretty easy to do you just have to remove the serpentine belt, and remove the crank pulley, then you can pry out the old seal with a pick or screwdriver, clean the area from dirt and debris. then put the new seal in place, you can use a large socket that fits the ring of the seal, and hit it in with a hammer, keep hitting evenly around the seal so it goes in straight

R & r info. on front seal and crankshaft seal. Car is leaking lots of oil up to two quarts per day


Front crank shaft oil seal is located behind the crank shaft pulley (A.K.A. the harmonic balancer). If you look from under the car at the bottom pulley on the engine. It will be very wet and oily. This is not an easy job to replace the seal for the inexperienced.

Will not start


sounds like somewhere one shaft moved and did mess up the timing. You might have to open the bell housing sight window for the timing marks and reset the entire timing system marks to marks, then use a timing light to fine tune it.

I heve been here and done that and Im sorry to say you may have to do it as well. Igf you have the shop manual just look up timing and how to reset it.

Hope this helps.

Changed timing belt on 95 honda civic


check your oil make sure the crank seal is ok that u didnt spill ur oil and blow it up. then check the timing belt - you may not have had the tension tight enough on the timing belt and it may have skipped a bit causing it to not fire. i think thats the most likely.

Front oil seal


They are right. The sleeve will seal against the crank seal. The ridges are what is letting the seal leak. I install sleeves quite often on older models, the success rate is pretty high.

Smoke from the exhaust when starting


I would think this is valve stem seals that are letting a little bit of oil down on top of the piston and when you go to start the car you get a bit of oil smoke when you start the car

Main seal


First is it a front seal ,or rear main seal,(front seal,being were you see the pulleys and fan belts,,you have to look at the bottom pulley,follow the shaft to the motor,where the shaft goes into the motor is the front seal,the pulley and everthing behind it has to come out then you pull out the seal,auto zone actually has free tool rental that you can pull the seal,and a tool to put it back in,if a rear main seal its where the shaft from the transmission meets the back of the motor,youll have to pull the trannsmission back,check where you see the oil leek from,the front seal you can do if mechanically inclined,but if its the rear you should take to a mechanic,if this helps please give me a fix ya vote
