Question about 2002 Toyota Highlander

1 Answer

Dealer indicated the rear main seal is leaking. He quoted more than one day of work and $1,200. Is this reasonable? This seems very expensive and odd that he could so quickly diagnose the problem.

I have a rear axle seal leakage.


Only if that is where the leak is.
Would be good to determine that before dismantling.
Leaks could be from the front seal, from the differential cover, from the fill plug, or from the vent.
Some differential covers are using sealant instead of a gasket these days.
A leak indicated from the front seal ( where the drive shaft is attached) might tell you to just keep adding oil, as it could be really expensive to fix.
God bless your efforts.

Leaky rear main seal


I bought a 2000 RL used, with some factory warranty remaining, and then bought an extended warranty. While hnder warranty, car began to smell up my garage from fumes from oil dripping onto hot exhaust. Not enough oil at that point to show up on garage floor. Complained to dealer about the odor but Acura Master Mechanic (said he) couldn't find source of odor (although I told him I suspected an oil leak because I had prior experience with oil leaks and resultant smells on another car). On the next service visit after the extended warranty expired, same master mechanic said my RL's rear main oil seal was leaking onto exhaust causing odor. And the dealer wanted north of $1000 to fix it. I declined. Leak has steadily gotten worse - now visible drops on garage floor. An independent repair shop quoted $650 plus the cost of replacing expensive, special Honda transmission fluid. Took my complaint all the way up the chain to the head of Honda in Japan, but got no assistance. No more Honda products for me.

2003 Ford expedition AC question they want to replace the condensor, compressor, evaporator coil and condensor coil. how reasonable does that sound?


you have a leak and if you can hear it or smell it its a good one, most likely its a connecting leak where ever the components connect to each other. with an internal seal leak, such as compressor or evaporator, your freon will last about a month,with a external connection leak, your freon last a couple days

Oil leaking from toyota camry 1992, 1994 model


You don't say what engine it has. The 4-cyl was a better than the V6 for oil leaks.

The V6 had oil leaks from

-rear bank cam cover gasket

-distributor o-ring seal

-oil filter bracket o-ring seal

-crankshaft nose oil seal (less common)

-rear main bearing oil seal (expensive, just leave it)

The 4 cyl leaked oil from

-distributor o-ring seal

-camshaft cover gasket

-rear main bearing seal (expensive, leave it)

The Dodge Dealer is saying the crank seal and cam seal are leaking when they went to change the oil, are these transmission seals or engine seals? do I need to place them or is there a product that will...


Crank seal could either be at the front or rear of the engine (there are two) Cam seal is at the front of the cylinder head. If the leaks are minor, a good product that may help is lucas conditioner and sealer. Larger leaks require an actual seal replacement. No sealer will work immediately. The reason most leak is because over time the seal hardens from heat. It takes a while to soften it up again.
If the leak is from the rear main seal, the transmission needs to be removed to get to it but neither seal is part of the transmission.

How much can i get for my 1997 oldsmobile cutlass supreme that is in good condition and runs, but has a rear main seal leak.


to replace the rear main seal on that car is expensive and may cost as much as the car is worth,it depends on the mileage and body condition, maybe 1000.00, a 1997 cutlass supreme in good condition,with 100,000 miles can sell for 2000.00. yours needs a rear main seal.and you say its in good condition inside and out then start at $1400.00.

1997 Jeep Cherokee Leaking Oil whilst driving


This could be the rear main seal on the crank shaft that is leaking, clean around all the areas completely to isolate the leak.  There are some oil additives available at your parts store that work to cause swelling of the seal to re-seal it.  This may or may not work, but it may slow the leak.

There is a good chance it is the rear main seal. If this is a turbo engine, the oil return line seal from the bottom of the turbo to the block leaks also. Shop should be able to clean everything off and spay some dust on the area. Drive the car a few days, and take another look. You really need a lift to get a good look.

Rear Main Seal Leak


To replace the seal, the mechanic will have to either lift the engine or lower the transmission. You will get much better pricing going to a transmission shop (e.g. AAMCO) and getting a quote from them to replace the seal.
