SOURCE: Rear Main Seal Leak

To replace the seal, the mechanic will have to either lift the engine or lower the transmission. You will get much better pricing going to a transmission shop (e.g. AAMCO) and getting a quote from them to replace the seal.

SOURCE: Rear Main Seal Leaking

Hello, it's not "easy" but, it's doable.
You'll need to follow the instructions and don't take shortcuts. ask for help if you need it.
Use this link to get an idea of what is involved. Ignore the "remove transmission" part. It can be done without removing the tranny. If you decide to do this buy a service manual to help you. If you have any questions feel free to ask.

SOURCE: rear main seal leaks..does this affect transmission??

A leaking rear main seal will not cause your transmission to leak.

The transmission has its own seal and should not leak because of the engine rear main seal.

Due to the labor involved in replacing the rear main seal on the engine, it is best if you replace the front transmission seal at the same time if possible.

Installation varies on different vehicles but the principles are the same.

SOURCE: rear main seal

I have done many the transmisson has to come out to replace it but your price is way out of line, should not be more than $400.00 give me a zip and I can get you a certified shop that can do it for less with a warrenty.

Does replacing oil seal require removing oil pan on 2004 Honda civic ex 1.7L VTEC automatic?


not normally as it is in the timing cover case or behind the bottom sprocket or drive pullet for the timing belt
if it is a rear main seal it will require the transmission removal as well as the flywheel /torque converter
you were not specific as to which oil seal required replacing.
best get a workshop manual as that book shows the procedure to replace seals

1988 honda acura legend keeps leaking oil dont know where from


You need to have someone you trust to look under your car for leaks. For that amount of oil loss the leak should show a trail of oil.

There is a rear main seal and it is where the transmission and engine join. Often the oil pan is in the vicinity of this part. Perhaps the repair was misdiagnosed and you actually had a bad rear seal leak instead. Depending on how this style seal is removed, it may require separating the engine from the transmission. Or the repair did not last and you should go back to have it corrected.

If there is no leak under your car, then the oil is going somewhere. The valve seals are the next most probable place.

I hope my solution is helpful, please rate my info.

How to replace a rear main seal in a 2001 chevy 2500


several things, the rear main seal is accessable by removing the transmission. if this vehicle is standard transmission, then would recomend new clutch at this time given the amount of labor involved. if automatic, remove drive shafts, transfer case, transmission, and flexplate ....replace rear main. approx 5 hrs.

Oil leak on driveway coming from front of engine


Dear Sir,
Here is the oil leaking Problem Identifying Technique

Engine oil leaks from the valve cover gasket are common.

  • The intake manifold plenum gasket may leak and cause increased oil consumption/burning and a spark knock during acceleration; the gasket should be replaced.
  • External oil leaks from valve cover gaskets, intake gaskets (front or rear), and the rear crankshaft (rear main) seal area are common. The rear main seal is an unlikely source. Normally, the bearing cap mating surfaces (as well as the sealing surface between the oil pan and bearing cap) are the source for the leaks.
  • Engine oil leaks at the distributor can be misdiagnosed as leaks from theintake manifold seal, oil pan gasket, or rear crankshaft (rear main) seal. A revised distributor is available if oil is found inside the distributor.
  • If the oil filter casing shows signs of distortion from excessive oil pressure, theoil pump should be replaced.
  • Often misdiagnosed as a leaking oil filter gasket, the oil filter adapter can seep from between the adapter and engine block.
  • Carbon buildup on the top of the piston is common. As the buildup increases with mileage and over time, symptoms may vary from light ticking, to ticking/hammering, to hammering/knocking noises. Fuel injector cleaner often solves the problem.

    Need a engine diagram for a 2.8 ltr v6 showing rear main seal


    Just a little advise before you jump to thinking the rear main seal is leaking. The vast majority of the oil leaks from these 2.8L motors are the rear intake manifold seal and the distributor o-ring. I would check them first. The rear main seal is in the lower rear of the motor, you have to remove the transmission to replace ti.

    I have a small oil leakcoming from the rear of the engine. It is dripping onto the exhaust. One mechanic says it's the main seal but one says its the oil sending unit.


    There is a huge difference in price and oppinion between your two mechanics.If I may suggest,go with the oil sender unit and hope this is it because replacing a main seal is going to cost you a lot more money .Ask the mechanic to put the car up on the hoist and show you the leaking sender unit.They should be willing to do this for you.Use your own judgement and good luck

    Replaced rear main seal on 5.7 but still seems to be leaking. Any suggestions?


    Be sure it is the rear main seal,there is a cam plug that could be leaking,but if it is the rear main oil seal leaking,then I suggest removing it,and installing a rear main repair sleeve,this will give it a new surface to ride on,the crankshaft may have a groove cut into it from the oil seal,this will remedy the problem.If this was at all helpful,please rate,thank you.
