Jack up vehicle and support on stands. Remove wheels. Remove differential cover . Locate and remove lock pin that holds cross shaft in. Slide cross shaft out. Push axle inward to release axle c clip. Remove axle and pry out old seal. Install new seal with proper tool.Add some lube to the seal lip to aid axle intallation. Revese removal procedure. This is for a "c" type axle.
Another type has 4 nuts attaching a retainer plate to the backing plate behind the axle flange. In this case the 4 nuts are removed and the axle will come out. This may require a little effort. I think that you have a "c" type axle in your vehicle. Hope this helps. Moe

2003 Lincoln Navigator leaking coolant from some sort of drain hole located behind the rear passanger wheel. There is 4 hoses then this hole, where the leak is.

Rear heater core or hoses going to or from it must be leaking? You have to take the cover off the rear heater assembly to fix it on most vehicles. don-ohio (:^)

KNOCKING SOUND in nuetrol,louder in gear,when driving even louder.

If that changes with the speed of the engine then these are not good sounds. Any mechanic will be able to tell you just by hearing what the problem is. It could be something simple like a loose heat shield which is just banging on the side of the engine or it could be a bearing on the crank or con rods. You really don't want to drive this as it can/will cause more damage (more $$ to fix). Without hearing it and without seeing the damage this could be a few $ (ie tighten a bolt) to a new engine. Get an estimate and don't just say fix it or you can spend more than some cars are worth. You can get engines out of the wrecking yards with fairly low miles for about 1/10th the cost of rebuilding but you need to get it out of there and into your car.

Find someone you trust to figure this out. Either someone who knows about cars a bit to go with you or if you are lucky a great mechanic to take it to. If it is a newer car under warranty just go to the dealer and they should fix it under warranty no charge. I don't see a year or model so just be careful about getting someone to fix this as worse case can run a few dollars.

I had a mechanic come out and work on my Laredo about 8 months ago; it was leaking fluid from the rear main seal. He didn't fix the leak and since then the gear indicator doesn't match up, and I...

I don't know how you thought he could fix that leak when the trans has to come out? Take it to a transmission shop and stop guessing, and replacing perfectly good parts. Have the trans shop replace the rear seal while the trans is out.

On my 78' Chevrolet c60 my brakes are going to the floor. I keep bleeding them and the air goes right back in as fast as I can get it out. If it sits it will leak all the fluid out. But the fluid is...

its obvously draging air in from somewere so to start with replace the bleeder valve under the hood, top up fluid bleed again.have somebody slowly pump the brakes then check all pipes and joints,hoses for sighns of leaks, if you find a leak that is the most likely spot were air is entering the system.

Hi, i have a mitsubishi montero 01, the air condition stops working due to leakage and my mechanic decides to remove the leaking pipe that goes to a unit(i dont know the name now) above the right rear tyre...

Make sure you have water in your radiator! The leaking is probably coming from there or a hose linking the radiator to the engine block. If there's no water, fill it up again (make sure your engine hasn't been running for awhile before opening it up). If there is water though, check for any hoses running the radiator to the engine if you can see them and make sure they are tight, look for wet spots on the hoses to see what might be leaking.

If this solves it, take it to another mechanic!

Leaking on the right side under the car they told me it might be the evaporator but I don't know where that is in my car I have a 1997 Ford Expedition, I don't even know what it looks like

The evaporator is located in the heater box, it is the AC's equivalent of a heater core. Water is a NORMAL by product of refrigeration, and the clear water must leak out to the ground.

Engine coolant is leaking thought flywheel on my 1995 mercury cougar. Can this problem be fixed?

The most likely cause of this problem is a leaking freeze plug located in the rear of the engine block. The problem can definitely be fixed. Unfortunately, it's probably not going to be something that can be done quickly and easily and it might require removing the engine in order to gain access.
I don't think block seal will work in this case. Although this job is not impossible for someone to do themselves, it's best suited for someone who has a mechanical background. If you don't have experience in this area and you decide that you want to do this then please be very careful and remember that there are hidden dangers inside that engine compartment for someone who does not have experience in this area. Do not remove fuel or AC lines if you don't have experience in this area. I hope this information has been helpful and thank you for using

I have a 2006 chevy aveo and it has developed an oil leak. I took it to my repair shop and they were unable to locate the leak. They said it wasn't a big deal and not to worry about. I am wondering if...

Depending on the location of your oil leak, yes, it could be something that's expensive to fix. However, the reason for that expense probably wouldn't be the parts (it's probably some rubber gasket or seal), but rather the labor required to get to the rubber part and replace it. For example, if your rear seal has developed a leak, you may have to take off quite a lot of engine parts to install the $4.95 (I just made that price up, but it's not a particularly expensive part) seal.

It is possibly worth taking the time and modest expense to figure out the source of your oil leak, just to make sure that it's either something easily fixed or something that can safely be ignored. The tried and true method for tracking down the source of your leak is to get your engine steam-cleaned, so that you can see new leaks instead of chasing down old leaks or things tossed up onto your engine from the road. Then, put a sheet of clean cardboard under your car when you park it for the night. The oil will leak down onto the cardboard, giving you a place to start looking. Note, however, that the oil may have leaked from somewhere entirely different than where it is dripping--the leak may have first fallen onto a structural member, which then permitted the oil to flow downward to the ground. Still, with a clean engine, you should be able to trace the oil drip back to its source pretty easily.

The most common oil leaks occur from an oil filter whose seal has gotten pinched and isn't fitting correctly (something that will fix itself with your next oil and filter change) or a worn oil pan drain plug gasket (also something that can be fixed for pennies at your next oil change). You might also find oil weeping from an oil pressure sensor--again, an inexpensive and relatively easy fix. Next up, you might find oil weeping from a valve cover gasket or possibly even from the gasket between the engine and the oil pan itself. Replacing a valve cover gasket is a relatively minor repair; replacing the oil pan gasket would likely be more complicated because I don't believe you can drop the oil pan on this car without first having to pull the drive shafts (a fair amount of labor). You can also check out your EGR system to see whether any of the hoses in that system have become oil saturated and are starting to drip. Once you're past those possibilities, though, you're quite possibly starting to look at seals and gaskets that are rather more expensive to access and replace.

Lots of older cars tend to start "marking their territory" with the occasional drop of oil on the ground. If it's going to be an expensive fix, you might just learn to deal with that new behavior. A bit of clay-based kitty litter under your car, for example, can absorb quite a bit of oil. Conversely, if you have a serious oil leak, it's something you'll need to address so that you don't run the risk of a catastrophic blow-out, major loss of oil, and the potential for engine damage.
