You will have to raise the engine,by undueing the engine mounts,then remove the oil pan,then remove the lower crank bolts,drop down the crank enough to gain room for the new rear main seal to be put into place and reverse procedure and torque the bearings to specfications.you will need a seal tool for the rear seal

I have a 2004 jeep grand Cherokee limited with a 4.7 V8 HO. Do have to put a 4.7 V8 HO engine back in it or can I just put a regular 4.7 V8 in it?


the HO is a high output version of the 4.7. the differences are internal, the externals *should* be the same.

to be sure, though, call an auto parts store and ask them if the 4.7 regular and 4.7 HO use the same MAIN SEAL. this sill ensure that the regular 4.7 will fit a 4.7 HO transmission, as the main seal comes between the back of the engine and the front of the transmission.

I am having alot of oil leakage from my 1995 ford thunderbird V8 i believe it is a 302


A rear seal is a big job. Best way to confirm is to clean it up real well and see if you can track down the leak.

How much crankshaft end play should there be?


Virtually none. If you have significant crankshaft end play, and you are not leaking oil, don't worry about it. If you are leaking oil from the rear main seal or from the pulley seal, consider rebuilding or replacing your engine before it seizes.
Recommendation: DRIVE IT 'TIL IT DIES. Replacement engines for your vehicle are abundant and not particularly expensive.

Oil leak front engine timing chan


1995 Tracker would have a timing BELT. Normal oil leak points (in order) on a Suzuki G16 engine are the distributor base (rear of motor), valve cover (top of motor), front main seal (behind lower timing belt cog) cam seal (behind the upper timing belt cog) and rear main seal. (behind the flywheel). I'd suspect the front main seal or cam seal. I use foot power to help find oil leaks.

How hard is it to replace the rear maine oil seal on a 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee 5.2 liter V8 4 wheel drive


There is some work involve in replacing rear main seal, seal sit in the rear of the engine block, the transmission will have to be remove, and the fly wheel to get to the rear main seal.If you have never removed a engine or transmission, it might be best to pay and have some one do it for you.

1996 grand jeep Cherokee leaks oil real bad do i need a new engine


If the engine itself runs well then possibly no you don't need a new one.
What you need to do is determine exactly where the leaks are though.
most leaks are not terribly difficult to repair. The only one that is difficult would be the rear main crank seal but even a leak there will often respond to a good chemical treatment like lucas engine sealer (will not harm internals). One item to definitely look at is the vent orifice (or pcv valve if you have one...also the vent "can" on v8 engines) on the valve cover though. If that is obstructed excessive pressure will build up inside the engine that can and will drive oil past even a good seal. Also check the oil pressure sending unit. many times they can leak and when they do, they usually leak a lot.
If you have a plug fouling problem or lots of bluish smoke from the tailpipe, correcting leaks will help but will not cure the problem. That comes from worn rings or cylinder bores and does require rebuild or replacement..

Rear main seal leaks..does this affect transmission??


A leaking rear main seal will not cause your transmission to leak.

The transmission has its own seal and should not leak because of the engine rear main seal.

Due to the labor involved in replacing the rear main seal on the engine, it is best if you replace the front transmission seal at the same time if possible.

Installation varies on different vehicles but the principles are the same.

Oil Leak


i would have to say the oil pan gasket. that is the one that I have replaced more often. it is ever usual for the rear main seal to go out but not impossible. but i would have to say oil pan gasket.
hope this helps and if you need anything else let me know. happy holidays.
