Oil leak on driveway coming from front of engine


Dear Sir,
Here is the oil leaking Problem Identifying Technique

Engine oil leaks from the valve cover gasket are common.

  • The intake manifold plenum gasket may leak and cause increased oil consumption/burning and a spark knock during acceleration; the gasket should be replaced.
  • External oil leaks from valve cover gaskets, intake gaskets (front or rear), and the rear crankshaft (rear main) seal area are common. The rear main seal is an unlikely source. Normally, the bearing cap mating surfaces (as well as the sealing surface between the oil pan and bearing cap) are the source for the leaks.
  • Engine oil leaks at the distributor can be misdiagnosed as leaks from theintake manifold seal, oil pan gasket, or rear crankshaft (rear main) seal. A revised distributor is available if oil is found inside the distributor.
  • If the oil filter casing shows signs of distortion from excessive oil pressure, theoil pump should be replaced.
  • Often misdiagnosed as a leaking oil filter gasket, the oil filter adapter can seep from between the adapter and engine block.
  • Carbon buildup on the top of the piston is common. As the buildup increases with mileage and over time, symptoms may vary from light ticking, to ticking/hammering, to hammering/knocking noises. Fuel injector cleaner often solves the problem.

    1999 Toyota Camry grey smoke from exhaust


    If it is grey smoke it sounds like steam which sounds like the cylnder head gasket is bust and needs replaced - if it has overheated then the worse case sceanrio is that the cylnder head may need reground or replaced. If the "smoke" is black then its burnuing oil and the seals are bust - much bigger job and more $'s.

    1992 Ford Crown Victoria Oil Pan is leaking. Is this a major problem to replace? Fred


    It is recommended that you lift out the engine before attempting to replace the oil pan. Once the engine is lifted you can remove the bolts, remove the pan, clean all the old gasket material.
    Installation: Remove the rear main bearing cap oil seal Remove the timing cover oil seal Clean all the mating surfaces and seal grooves Install new oil pan front cover seals Install a new rear main bearing cap oil seal Install new oil pan side gaskets on the block Make sure the tabs of the front and rear seal fit properly as these are critical spots Attach the oil pan to the engine block and install the retaining bolts

    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.

    Rear main seal replacment


    If you have a shop you need to pull the engine to replace the rear main seal. There is a possibility of a two part seal. If you have a two part seal drop the oil pan and pull the rear main engine cap off and then replace the seal. You may need specialized tools.

    How hard is it change front and rear oil seals?


    By front and rear oil seals, I am assuming that you are refering to the CRANKSHAFT front and rear oil seals.
    The front crankshaft oil seal is under all the components that must be removed to replace the timing belt.
    The standard labor time to replace this seal is 4.0 hours for the 4 cylinder and 4.8 hours for the V-6.

    The rear crankshaft oil seal requires removal of the transaxle to replace it.
    The standard labor time required to do this is 7.3 hours

    This is not a job for a novice unless you want to purchace a service manual and spend a lot of time reading the instructions before jumping into it.

    Rear barring an seal replaced


    I'm not sure if this is the right part of your car but, are you talking about the rear seal on the engine for the crankshaft?

    If so:

    Rear Main Oil Seal REMOVAL & INSTALLATION Fig. 1: Rear main seal installation for the 2.3L and 2.5L engines 85553306.gif
    Fig. 2: Removing the rear main seal 85553307.gif
    Fig. 3: Installing the rear main seal on the 2.9L engines 85553308.gif
    If the crankshaft rear oil seal replacement is the only operation being performed, it can be done in the vehicle as detailed in the following procedure. If the oil seal is being replaced in conjunction with a rear main bearing replacement, the engine must be removed from the vehicle and installed on a work stand.
    1. Remove the starter.
    2. Remove the transmission from the vehicle, following the procedures in Section 7.
    3. On a manual shift transmission, remove the pressure plate and cover assembly and the clutch disc following the procedure in Section 7.
    4. Remove the flywheel attaching bolts and remove the flywheel and engine rear cover plate.
    5. Use an awl to punch two holes in the crankshaft rear oil seal. Punch the holes on opposite sides of the crankshaft and just above the bearing cap to cylinder block split line. Install a sheet metal screw in each hole. Use two large screwdrivers or small pry bars and pry against both screws at the same time to remove the crankshaft rear oil seal. It may be necessary to place small blocks of wood against the cylinder block to provide a fulcrum point for the pry bars. Use caution throughout this procedure to avoid scratching or otherwise damaging the crankshaft oil seal surface. To install:
    6. Clean the oil seal recess in the cylinder block and main bearing cap.
    7. Clean, inspect and polish the rear oil seal rubbing surface on the crankshaft. Coat a new oil seal and the crankshaft with a light film of engine oil. Start the seal in the recess with the seal lip facing forward and install it with a seal driver. Keep the tool, T82L-6701-A (4-cyl. engines) or T72C-6165 (6-cyl. engine) straight with the centerline of the crankshaft and install the seal until the tool contacts the cylinder block surface. Remove the tool and inspect the seal to be sure it was not damaged during installation.
    8. Install the engine rear cover plate. Position the flywheel on the crankshaft flange. Coat the threads of the flywheel attaching bolts with oil-resistant sealer and install the bolts. Tighten the bolts in sequence across from each other to the specifications listed in the torque chart in this section.
    9. On a manual shift transmission, install the clutch disc and the pressure plate assembly following the procedure in Section 7.
    10. Install the transmission, following the procedure in Section 7.

    If it's oil, it's coming from the rear main seal.. I would go with this idea.

    The seal doesn't cost much but the labor to get to it does.

    To give you an idea what is involved the procedure is illustrated below from the service manual:

    3. Install the seal into the housing using the seal driver EN-47623 or equivalent and driver handle J-8092 or equivalent. Apply downward force until the seal is seated. NOTE: Ensure that the housing gasket is installed correctly and that the oil passages are not blocked.
    4. Using a new gasket Install the rear oil seal housing on the engine being careful not damage the rear main seal. NOTE: The plastic inserts are used in production and are not needed for assembly.
    5. Hand tighten the bolts. Rear seal housing alignment 3.8L gm-03-38-1176.gif

    6. Place a straight edge on the crankshaft rear oil seal housing flange and the engine block oil pan flange. Using a feeler gauge check that there is no more than .0004 in (0.10 mm) step on each side. Rotate the housing to make the steps equal on both sides.
    7. Tighten the housing bolts 11 ft-lb (15 Nm) plus an additional 50 degrees.
    8. Ensure that the housing did not move out of specification. Repeat step 6 if the oil seal housing is not within the specified range. Replace the rear oil seal housing if the specified measurement can not be reached.
    9. Install the flywheel.
    10. Install the oil pan.
    11. Fill the engine oil and the cooling system.
    12. Check for leaks
    5.3L Engine To Remove:
    1. Remove the flywheel from the crankshaft.
    2. Remove and discard the crankshaft rear oil seal from the rear cover.
    To Install:
    1. Use clean engine oil to lubricate the outside diameter of the crankshaft rear oil seal and rear cover oil seal bore.
    2. Install the tapered cone and bolts of a J 41479 or equivalent crankshaft rear oil seal installer onto the crankshaft.
    3. Place the crankshaft rear oil seal onto the tapered cone.
    4. Install the threaded rod of the J 41479 crankshaft rear oil seal installer into the tapered cone. Rear main seal installer 5.3L gm-03-53-3872.gif

    5. Install the crankshaft rear oil seal by turning the handle of the J 41479 clockwise.
    6. Remove the J 41479 crankshaft rear oil seal installer from the crankshaft.
    7. Install the flywheel onto the crankshaft.

    Oil leaking in engine have replaced seal and O rings but still leaks. I am going to scream!


    ok, There are many areas that the oil could leak from. Head gasket, oil pan gasket, rear main seal, front seal, valve cover gasket. You'll need to locate the leak under the car in order to know which one to replace. There is nothing simple about replacing the rear main seal and although he front seal is easier it can still be a problem. Good Luck.
