i had used three bolts they have to be 6mm thik and like about 6 inches long then you install some flat washers by the head and use a regular crank pulley remover, you'll see three little holes inside the groevs at front side of pulley and there is where you install the bolts

SOURCE: 1999 cross country v70 awd crankshaft seal replacement

Your info is confusing. The rear cam seal is not inside the timing belt cover, and the crank seal is at the bottom of the engine, while the cam seal is at the top.

Is there oil at the top, around the cam seal? Or just at the bottom? It's common for the oil pump seal to leak. If you get the oil pump reseal kit, it contains the oil pump seal and gasket, as well as the crankshaft seal. Make sure you seal the oil pump bolts, Volvo has special copper washers for this purpose.

Just try to locate the oil leak before replacing any more parts. Sometimes it can be something simple like the oil cap seal or the oil trap housing.

SOURCE: Oil leak where half shaft enters transfer case on passenger side.

Same propblem. My dealer repaired twice, cost lots of dollars cause they say they have to remove the case. After the second repair and still leaks, they say the manufacture says to replace the transfer case??? $3400 for the job. Tomcal, if you are still checking, did you get it fixed and did you do it yourself? Good luck to anyone else with this problem. I love the car, a 2001 with less than 100K.

How do you replace front crank seal on 02 avalanche


The front crank seal is behind the oil pump on the LS series motors. There is also a seal at the crankshaft and harmonic balancer on the front timing cover. This is typical leak area. You can carefully remove the harmonic balancer with a puller, replace the timing cover seal and reinstall. Make sure not to pinch the seal lip You will have to have a special tool in order to re-install the balancer, which is extra long to squeeze it on the tapered shaft. I do not think the other crank seal is an issue since it drains to the pan behind the oil pump.

Front seal replacement


Hi No Name, The most likely place of the leakage on your car is the front crankshaft oil seal. The oil pan (sump) is fitted with silicon from a tube as the gasket. It rarely leaks unless someone has broken the seal, which is difficult and usually needs a special tool for removal. To replace it you'll need to disconnect the battery, remove the PK (Serpentine) belt and the power steering pump belt and the front engine mounting (Front of the engine but fitted onto the side of the body) Next remove the crank shaft pulley, (a difficult part of the job, made easier if the starter motor is removed and a dog tooth tool is bolted into the most suitable starter motor attachment bolt holes, the dog tooth is used to lock the flywheel while removing the crankshaft bolt holding the pulley (which is torqued to 76 nm when re-fitting. Use a puller to remove the pulley from the crankshaft and then remove the ten mm bolts holding the two parts of the timing belt cover. Set the engine to T.D.C (Top Dead Center) and look for the match marks for re-timing the engine when refitting the timing belt. Once alignment has been achieved release the bolt holding the tensioner bearing and push it all the way open, releasing all tension from the timing belt and remove the timing belt. The oil seal can now be removed from its housing. Fit a replacement oil seal smearing a light coating of grease on the seal lip. Press evenly into place, making sure of an even flush fit. Replace the timing belt with a new belt, Re-align the belt so that the match marks align precisely to those on the gears by fitting and adjusting on the straight side of the belt. Once correctly fitted, gently release the tensioner bearing until it comes into full contact with the belt and hand tighten the fixing bolt and then loosen half one turn. Remove the dog tooth tool. Screw in the crankshaft pulley bolt and apply enough force to take up slack and tighten the tensioner. Remove the crankshaft bolt and then reassemble opposite to disassembly. Remember to refit the dog tooth for re-tightening the crankshaft bolt.

Replace front camshaft seal


Disconnect battery, remove breather box, disconnect wires to alternator. If it has coil packs, remove them. Remove valve cover. Remove power steering pump( don't unhook the hoses) lay it to the side. Loosen alternator. You may need to rent a special tool to remove crankshaft pulley. Unplug cam sensor, remove timing cover. remove #1 spark plug, turn crank by hand until you find TDC compression stroke (notice timing marks on cam and crank pulleys). loosen bolt on timing belt tensioner and remove timing belt. Remove cam pulley and replace cam seal, while you're at it you may as well change the crank seal too. Reinstall everything in reverse order.After you get it back together, you'll have to recode your radio, if it is equipped with anti theft. If you're lucky, this is about a 6 hour job.

How to replace Crank Seal , Honda Accord 95, F22B2 engine


this is covered in the FSM. 95 accord.
did you google this?
http://www.honda-acura.net/forums/accord/137349-1993-f22-crank-cam-balance-shaft-seal-hell.html

are you sure its only the crank seal,????
gravity lies. as does windage effects.
is this an A/T or M/T car, the latter makes the bolt come off easy
(5th gear + brakes) the slush pump tranny NOT.
so if you read the FSM it states." it shows photo of tire off and pulley bolt view and how the body ends just above that bolt, (see it?)
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the accessory drive belts.
  3. If necessary, secure the crankshaft with a flywheel holding tool.
For some engines, a special pulley holder tool is available to secure the pulley while removing and installing the bolt (refer to the illustration)."
4 Remove the crankshaft pulley bolt. This bolt can be difficult to remove. Spray the bolt with penetrating oil and allow it to soak overnight. Book forgets to see CCW direction on bolt (RHT)
the bolt will take about 200fl/lbs of reverse torque to get off.
5 Carefully remove the pulley from the crankshaft. Do not pry it off.
6:
Remove the key from the crankshaft sprocket. Be sure not to lose it.
7 -If necessary, remove the tool holding the crankshaft.

remove seal with seal puller or screw trick ,etc.
do not damage the seal base collar of the housing. DO NOT.

is this your first engine seal work>?
or done many , just need help with one honda.?
if doing all work on a honda, did you ever consider a real FSM?
why not get one, and read it, and all the steps and warnings.
worst case.
if you work engines, you know as you go , you see
Omg, it not the crank it the cam leaking, or just a bad valve cover.
fate happens, distributor seal leak too.

with all FWD, doing a crank seal can be easy or hard.
no access panels in finder
or on some cars, 7ton pressed on pulley, (Dodge neons/ yuk)

bolt spec:
1994-95 Accord and Prelude-181 ft. lbs. (245 Nm)

if the 90,000 mile timing belt is ignored, you will bend the head valves over, or worse... so...... all this , is a consideration.

    Change front main seal , leaking oil around timing chain cover. could be seal around harmonica balancer.


    yes, I just changed one of these recently. Had to take both front and bottom off engine. Very difficult repair, as there are no good jack points for the engine when you have all the motor mounts off.
    Here is procedure I would recommend.
    Remove starter and engine to transmission brackets front and back.
    Remove transmission starter gear cover.
    drain oil and remove oil pan.
    put a block under the crankshaft and jack to release weight on motor mount.
    remove front motor mount (by serpentine belt)
    remove belt.
    remove compressor and bracket.
    remove crank pulley and vib damper.
    remove timing cover. mark timing belt with direction of travel
    loosen tensioner gear.
    remove timing belt.
    remove crankshaft timing gear and key.
    remove seal and oil pump housing.
    clean gasket surfaces.
    replace seal and reverse procedure.

    If you have questions, let me know.

    How to change time chain on a 3.3 v6 dodge caravan, easy way to look at timeing chain, so i can tell if it is bad


    This design has no tensioner. Check the sprockets for wear on the tips--especially the crank sprocket. With the cover off, turn the crankshaft with a socket and see how close the chain comes to slipping backward on the sprocket. There are complete replacement procedures at AutoZone.com, which I will try to paste in below.

    3.3L and 3.8L Engines

    See Figure 18



    0900c15280215ddb.jpg enlarge_icon.gifenlarge_tooltip.gif Fig. Fig. 18: Timing mark alignment-3.3L and 3.8L engines
    1. If possible, position the engine so that the No. 1 piston is at TDC on the compression stroke. Disconnect the negative battery cable. Drain the coolant.
    2. Remove the timing chain case cover. For more information, refer to the Front Timing Cover and Seal procedure, earlier in this section.
    3. Remove the camshaft gear attaching cup washer and remove the timing chain with both gears attached. Remove the timing chain snubber.

    To install:
    1. Assemble the timing chain and gears.
    2. Turn the crankshaft and camshaft to line up with the key way locations of the gears.
    3. Slide both gears over their respective shafts and use a straight edge to confirm alignment.
    4. Install the cup washer and camshaft bolt. Tighten the bolt to 35 ft. lbs. (47 Nm).
    5. Check camshaft end-play. The specification with a new plate is 0.002-0.006 in. (0.051-0.052mm) and 0.002-0.010 in. (0.51-0.254mm) with a used plate. Replace the thrust plate if not within specifications.
    6. Install the timing chain snubber.
    7. Thoroughly clean and dry the gasket mating surfaces.
    8. Install new O-rings to the block.
    9. Remove the crankshaft oil seal from the cover. The seal must be removed from the cover when installing to ensure proper oil pump engagement.
    10. Using a new gasket, install the chain case cover to the engine.
    11. Make certain that the oil pump is engaged onto the crankshaft before proceeding, or severe engine damage will result. Install the attaching bolts and tighten to 20 ft. lbs. (27 Nm).
    12. Use tool C-4992, or equivalent, to install the crankshaft oil seal. Install the crankshaft pulley using a 5.9 in. suitable bolt and thrust bearing and washer plate L-4524, or equivalent. Make sure the pulley bottoms out on the crankshaft seal diameter. Install the bolt and tighten to 40 ft. lbs. (54 Nm).
    13. Install all other parts removed during the chain case cover removal procedure and fill the engine with oil.
    14. Connect the negative battery cable, road test the vehicle and check for leaks.

    I want to change the mechanical oil seal for crank shaft


    you need a gear puller to pull the gear off. but to change the seal for the crankshaft, you only remove the timing gear and change the seal on the cover that you removed. there is nor need to pull the gear itself. if you pull the gear, you still can't change any other bearings or seals without removing the heads and manifold.
