How to replace crankshaft seal and cam seal


You have to take apart entire front of your engine and take timing belt off, so your best bet is to replace water pump, all pulleys, timing belt and all oil seals in one shot.

I was told I have to replace the crankshaft seal and oil pan gasket on my 2000 chevy malibu and will cost approx. $380.00. Also is the rear main seal the same thing as the crankshaft seal??? Thanks!


Well sometimes.... the front crankshaft seal is usually called a crank seal, or the front timing cover seal but the rear crank seal is (usually) called the Rear Main crank seal. In order to replace the rear seal , the transmission will need to be removed. If its the front, then the harmonic balancer will be removed. $380 sounds cheap. As you will need a oil seal, oil pan gasket, oil, filter, labor and tax. Maybe even a lower engine mount.

2002 Pontiac Sunfire GT. 2.2 Litre Ecotec Engine. Concern: Front Seal is leaking. Question: Does the engine need to be pulled to replace the seal?


No. The crankshaft pully can be removed through the right wheel well area. (This is the hard part) Once the pully is off, the seal is relatively easy to change.
