Question about 1997 Audi A4

1 Answer

Hi, I have just replace the main oil seal on my Audi A4 2.6 V6 1997 Model transmission gearbox. I have pulled out the complete engine with gearbox, replaced the seal and fit the engine and gearbox back in position as it originally was. Now the car does not want to start - got a few auto electricians out but could not solve the problem.

I have a nissan 1400 champ and is leaking oil on the front part of the manual 5 speed gearbox and the rear part of the gearbox. I have replaced the crankshaft oil seal but i still have oil leaking on


There are seals on the front and rear of the transmission. If the clutch wasn't covered in engine oil, then replacing the crankshaft seal wasn't necessary. Reseal the transmission.

How to replace rear main seal on an 2006 audi a6 sline?


the first thing is to determine exactly where the oil is coming from. If it is a sump gasket at the rear main area it will be easier to do that than pulling the transmission and flywheel to do it (if it is not the main seal) Next is it gear oil - reddish or if manual smells different to engine oil. IT auto and is reddish it may be an oil cooler line or a front seal in the torque converter. I am saying that if it is a rear main seal it will be a big job so make sure before you get involved.

If no external leak and the transmission fluid colour looks white, the problem belongs to the automatic gearbox oil cooler. The oil cooler has broke mixing the gearbox oil and coolant causing this milkshake. It's a small radiator core type oil / water heat exchanger. It is cracked inside and transmission oil is mixed with engine coolant. Because the transmission oil pressure is greater than engine coolant pressure, the transmission fluid level drops. See also the coolant colour inside recovery coolant reservoir inder bonnet! It could be like this:

My 1995 Geo Metro 1.3 L leaks a lot of transmission oil. What is the problem?


Faulty oil seal, simple as that, where it is will be for a garage to find.

There are three main oil seals, one each side of the gearbox (CV driveshaft seals) and the other which requires gearbox removal is the torque converter to gearbox oil seal. Hope its not that one!!

PS = I trust the gearbox level is correct and NOT overfilled as this will also happen,. Has anyone recently topped up trans and spilled fluid??

Oil leak on 2005 -2006 new model passat


rear end oil seal ,a common fault but its expensive to repair although the seal only costs coppers as the gearbox has to come completely out and this will involve dropping the sub frame as well.no short cuts here ,iam afraid ,how bad is the leak ??try some autobox laek sealer additive and put it in the engine oil.also if and when you have it repaired check for a ball bearing blancking plug in end of oil gallery its a possibility ??seen it before .whats the mileage of this vehicle as it sounds like a high mileage reps cars

Oil leakage


hi from uk if your oil ? leak is from rear of engine area ? but you say oil level in engine is ok? and not needed to top up ? then i would check the gearbox/transmission oil level? for any loss? asap it may be your leak is coming from g/box/transmission front seal ? but either way gearbox will have to come out do be able to replace both rear engine crank seal and g/box front seal at the same time ? hope this helps you don;t delay in topping oil level in trans ?
