Crankshaft seal on a 2005 chevy equinox


If you're looking for the seal -have a look on Ebay:
1 042results for equinox crankshaft seal

If your question relates to a leak, a classic symptom of a leaking crankshaft seal is drips of oil from the bell housing - where the transmission attaches to the engine. It only leaks when the engine is running.

To replace the seal you need to remove the transmission/clutch/flywheel assembly -or in the case of auto transmission - the torque converter which attaches to the rear of the engine.

To remove the old seal you simply prise it out with a screwdriver, lubricate the new seal and gently tap it into position. However as mentioned, you need to remove the transmission first..

DOORS DONT CLOSE TIGHT HEAR ROAD NOISE


While it is not common for a vehicle of that age, it is possible the rubber seals around the doors are aged enough to allow small amounts of air and noise to enter. If you can see physically the door isn't closed fully, check the closing points for lubrication as in 10 yrs the lubrication can collect rain, dust, silt, etc causing it not to function as it once did. Often times you may need to use a silicon spray to help remove the old lubrication and apply fresh. Silicon spray by itself will not provide proper lubrication for long. A local auto parts store should be able to recommend something for this. I most often use marine bearing grease as it stands up better to moisture.

HOW DO I PREVENT AND GET RID OF CONDENSATION IN HADLIGHT ASSY


Condensation in a headlight assembly usually means a crack or split in the assembly somewhere.Remove the assembly and use a hair dryer to dry it out. Go along to an auto supply store and get some "seam seal" (not silicone) and a silicone based lubricant.Spread the seam seal around the join in the headlight assembly and let it dry up.This is usually overnight.Take the silicone lubricant and apply it to the rubber gasket around each light bulb.DO NOT get the lubricant on the bulbs. Replace the bulbs in the assembly.This should solve your problem. Good luck

Ball joint repair and how do you do it


To perform the following procedure, the lower control arm must be removed from the vehicle. Refer to Removal And Installation for that procedure.

  1. Using a screw driver or other suitable tool, pry the seal boot off of the ball joint assembly
  2. Position receiving cup, Special Tool 6758 to support lower control arm when removing ball joint assembly. Install Remover, Special Tool 6919 on the top of the ball joint assembly.
  3. Using the arbor press, press the ball joint assembly completely out of the lower control arm.

NOTE: When installing ball joint in lower control arm, position the ball joint in control arm so notch in ball joint stud is in the direction shown. This will ease assembly of the ball joint to the steering when installing pinch bolt.

  1. By hand, position ball joint into ball joint bore of lower control arm. Be sure ball joint is not cocked in the bore of the control arm, this will cause the ball joint to bind when being pressed into control arm.

 

  1. Position control arm with installed ball joint, in an arbor press with Receiving Cup, Special Tool 6758 supporting the lower control arm. Then center Installer, Special Tool 6908-4 on the bottom of the ball joint
  2. Carefully align all pieces. Then press the ball joint into the lower control arm until it is completely seated against surface of lower control arm. The ball joint is correctly installed when there is no gap between the ball joint and the lower control arm. Do not apply excessive force against the ball joint or the lower control arm.
  3. Install a NEW seal boot by hand as far as possible on the ball joint. Installation of the seal boot is to be with the shield positioned as shown.

CAUTION: Do not use an arbor press to install the sealing boot on the ball joint. Damage to the sealing boot will occur if excessive pressure is applied to the sealing boot when it is being installed.

  1. Place Installer, Special Tool 6758 over seal boot and squarely align it with bottom edge of seal boot. Apply hand pressure to Special Tool 6758 until seal boot is pressed squarely against top surface of lower control arm.

CAUTION: A replacement ball joint is not pre-lubricated. Properly lubricate the replacement ball joint using Mopar Multi-Mile grease or an equivalent. Lubricate ball joint after seal boot is installed but prior to top of seal boot being pushed down below notch in ball joint stud. Air must vent out of the seal boot at notch when grease is pumped into ball joint, failure to do so will balloon and damage seal boot. Do not over grease the ball joint, this will prevent the seal boot from pushing down on the stud of the ball joint.

CAUTION: After the ball joint is properly greased, clip the end of the grease fleeing off below the hex. The ball joint seal boot is non-purgeable and further greasing is not required and can result in damage to the seal boot.

  1. Reinstall lower control arm on vehicle.

Do I need to treat the seals on the roof with any special type of lubricant


It is not a bad idea.I always use a silicon based product on all door seals.It keeps them from drying out and helps them to keep their shape.N.A.P.A. sells a good product for that. Just ask your jobber!
