Mechanic is not doing the job correctly and should be doing subsequent repairs free or paying for someone else to do it right.

SOURCE: cost to replace rear main seals on 2001 jeep gr. cher. ltd.

Actually yeah you are in luck that combination only requires dropping the oil pan. The seal is actually fairly easy to do it yourself, if your inclined. Parts about $20.00 and it's book rate is 5 hours. around here shops charge around $85/hour. About $500.00 out the door or under $50.00 if you want to get greasy. Here's a good picture guided step by step on a Jeep CJ with a 4.0 liter, yours is pretty much the same:

SOURCE: local mechanic says they can't check fluid level

"Sealed" means there's no dip stick tube.
The Explorers and Lincoln LS have this also.
It is nothing new and you can still change/flush the fluid as usual.
A special procedure is used to check the fluid level.
Not having the dip stick tube is one less place for dirt to get into the transmission.

SOURCE: '97 Ford Escort leaking auto transmission fluid.

The front seal could be replaced, and not have a problem. If you have a shop other than a transmission shop do the repairs, make sure the torque converter hub is inspected to make certain its not scratched/scorn. If the trans shifts properly and the fluid is not burned or smells burned, this would be an easy repair. If the trans fluid smells burned, and hasn't been serviced regularly, the rebuild would be the way to go. Also, ask what the warranty for any and all repair are on your vehicle. Normal warranty is 1yr, 12.000 miles in the automotive business.

How can I replace worn out grease seals on entire front and rear suspension system?


Check out ebay. I bought a whole selection of track rod style boots in a bag for which you select the appropriate size for your torn/rotted boot. Maybe someone does grease seals. I take it you've been to the dealer to see if the seal is a separate part number?

I had had the clutch replaced on my 2007 Suzuki swift sport due to an oil leak on an oil seal at the top of the engine but the problem has come back is the another seal on the gearbox that should have been...


automatic trans right?not stick, both have clutches.!!
so you want us to guess leaks.?
well is it ATF leaking? or engine oil>?>
pink or brown, oil>?
finding A/T leaks is no easy task,
some seals will fail again if the TC is not swapped out.
the seal runs on a metal surface there, and most not be damaged
the pump is there and it can leak.
finding it is no easy task, and very expensive.

find a mech, that will find it
clean it all , drive for 5 miles, see leak now? way 1.
way2
use dye IR light methods
buy the dye kit and put it into the unsaid oil source.
ask any mech, on earth to ID that oil, ATF, GL4, or engine oil
then add dye to that source, and run engine, and load up trans (A/T)
and see it leak and see the dye glow as it does with IR light .
$15 kit, to do.

try top post next time, what engine you have, and what trans.
we cant guess any of that, a swift to me , is a metal cage.
what matters here, is what driveline you have (cage gone)

Replacing front axle seals and bearings


I replaced the left front bearings and seals a couple of months back. It is not a problem but be careful as you dismantle the system and of course the reassembly of same. Be sure to replace all bearings and seals as you probably don't want to do this job twice at the cost of parts. No special tricks and relatively easy job. 1601d678-bcb0-4cc6-af13-c2a57bf7d073.jpg

Timing belt isnt moving when i turn the main crankshaft


This indicates a broken timing belt and will require the front of the motor to be pulled of to replace it . I suspect that you will have bent valves as well so the head will have to come off for then to be replaced . To do the job properly to obtain maximum life from the new belt ,Cam shaft seals ,crankshaft seal, hydraulic adjuster( if applicable), all idler pulley bearings must be replaced . The seals because oil destroys rubber belts well before due time and the pulley bearings will be worn out and will not see another full time period.

Cost replace rear main seal toyota camry


Four cylinder or V-6.

Both engines will require the removal of the timing belt to service the front crank seal. Both engines will also require the removal of the transmission to replace the rear main seal

either way way you would be looking at 3-4 hours for the front seal and 5 to 6 hours for the rear seal.

My oil is apparently "spraying" not just leaking.


This job will cost you money no matter what you do. If the seals are as bad as you have been told then you are up for a timing belt as well as oil destroys them very quickly. You will have to remove the timing belt and cam gear to get the seal out. IF the cam seal has gone then the crank seal will not be far behind it. If you let it go then the belt will fail; and you will have a head job to pay for as well Get a workshop manual and a mechanic friend to help you save on the labour costs but you are stuck for the parts.

How much does it cost to have seals replaced on a 2000 pontiac firebird v6 transmission? I keep finding a red fluid under it and I have had to fill the trans fluid up twice now.


it all depends on what seals, rear output seal is about $120.00, if it the front seal then trany has to be removed then an est, is about $500.00. i would wash it all down then let it run and try to pinpoint the leak could just be a line leaking or modulator valve going bad leting engine burn the fluid , good luck hope this helps.

My 1996 Toyota Camry is leaking oil right side front of vehicle


More than likely it would be the front seals, oil pump front shaft seal and gasket ( "o" ring), Cam seal, crank seal one of those. Have to remove timing belt in order to change these seals. I would change out all the seals and put a new timing belt on it. Depending on how many miles you have on your car I would consider a water pump as well because the timing belt also needs to be removed to replace this part. In other words... Costly repair, but instead of replacing the seals and solving the leak and then 2 weeks later the timing belt snaps, then you just paid twice for the labor. Check oil pan gasket first b4 you spend money on seals.
