You need to have full access to the bottom of the car,ideally lifted up.From there look for the gearbox and unbolt it from the engine mounting.Be careful as you may get oil coming out when removing it,so be ready for it.I would not suggest you try this on your own as it is quite heavy not ideal for one person to carry.Once all the bolt are out you will need to play around with it in order to remove it...

How long to change the rear main seal of a 97 saturn sl2?For me, the first question is always, "why did that part fail?"
Rear mains often fail because of a condition called "blowby"... that's when the rings wear to the point that exhaust gas leaks past, into the crankcase, building pressure that pushes against the seal.
If "blowby" is causing your problem, you'll need to do the entire engine. If it's JUST the seal, it will take 7 or 8 hours to R&R the engine so you can get to the seal. The seal itself isn't difficult, but that engine barely fits under the hood.

How do you replace the front crankshaft seal on a 1993 saturn sl2? First you will need to remove the Harmonic Balancer pulley from the engine. This may prove to be difficult being the bolt that holds the pulley on is tightened to 220ft lbs. once the bolt is removed the pulley should just slide off. behind the pulley is the front crankshaft seal, use a good seal remover tool to pry the old seal out. reinstall the new seal with a seal installation tool. make sure the crank pulley is tightened back to 220ft lbs.

Fluid leak from the seal between the transmission and engine about a drip every 5 seconds when running


would suspect that it is a rear main oil seal in the engine...not good and costly to repair since the engine and transmission need to be seperated for a 10 dollar part. is it oil that is leaking?

Oil leaking from rear main seal, how hard is this to change. And whats the going rate for a shop to do the repair.


Replacing the rear main seal is kind of a long one. It involves seperating the motor and trans. Depending if it is manual or auto,would weather you have to remove the flex plate (auto trans) or fly wheel (manual trans). Then of course there is removing the old seal, making sure it is free of burrs and putting the new one in, and reassembly.

Front Main Seal is blown on the Transmission


You have to remove the transmission, remove the torque converter to access the seal. Most likely the bushing behind the seal is worn out allowing fluid to leak past the seal. After the trans. is out, take it to a trans. shop. It requires a special tool to change the bushing. Seems like a bunch of work for $10.00 in parts. The rear main seal requires pulling the pan to access it. When the trans. is out, this is the time to replace the rear main seal on the engine.
