Question about Cars & Trucks
There are thin sleeves to put on the crankshaft to enlarge the shaft to cover the worn out area on the crankshaft ,so the seal will keep the oil in , These are available at a good auto parts store I believe we called them speedy sleeves. Older fords had problems with axels leaking differential oil on to brake shoes. Very common problem with small block chev V8's to leak oil at front cover of the motor. Just slide the sleeve on, and install the seal

The fix is replacement of motor!! I have the same problem and have already paid $700 in repairs to fix seal just to find out that the seal is being knocked out by loose crank shaft..Car had 60000 miles when I bought it 4 months ago, from a dealership, and now it needs a motor replacement..I stiil owe $5000 on a car that is worth $0..Dodge did not give the 100000 mile warranty they love to advertise on TV for the '06 Stratus..They only gave 36000 warranty because they did not think it would last much longer..Will never buy Chrysler product again!! They do not stand behind what they sell or they would have 100000 mile warranty on all their cars..

SOURCE: I have replaced the front
First check the compression on the cylinders. If they are low then the rings are bad. This will cause major oil leaks all over the engine. The only other thing would be that the main bearings are bad. to much slop and blowing the seal.

you need to remove the cover in the middle of the rear axle rotate the drive shaft until you see a bolt with a 5/16 head on it slide out the pin that the bolt held in remove the c clip that holds the axle in slide out the axle and replace the seal you should do both sides while its apart then put it back together and fill threw the plug on the front side that uses a 3/8 drive

Do not hammer the damper into place as damage may result to the damper or engine.
