Front seal? is it the front pump seal/ torque converter seal? ( the one behind the torque converter )
this model has a lot of problem with transmission, you may have a bad transmission before you even do any work!
check your fluid make sure you fill enough and visualize the shift cable and every thing connect to the transmission. good luck!

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.

How to remove transmission filter


You will need a floor jack and two jack stands. Raise the vehicle high enough to give you plenty of working room. Place the jac sstands uner the frame rails on each side of the vehicle and lower the floor jack to let the vehicle rfest on the jack stands. Place a large drain pan ujnder the transmission and rmove the front an side mounting bolts. Loosen, but do not remove the rear mounting bolts. Pry the front of the transmission pan loose and pull it down to allow the fluid to drain into the drain pan. The drain pan should be large enough to hold at least 5 quarts of fluid. Now remove the remaining bolts, and the pan and gasket.Clean all traces of gasket and sealant from the mating surface of the transmission. Drain the remaining fluid from he trans.pan and clean with solvent. Remove any gasket material or sealant from he gssket mounting surface. Remove the old filter from the transmission. If the seal didn't come out with the filter, remove it from the transmission . The new seal can be driven into place with an appropriate size socket. Make sure it goes in square.Install the new filter.Install the new gasket on the pan and install the pan on the transmission. Tighten the bolts a little at a time to make sure the pan goes on straight. Don't over tighten the bolts or it will distort the pan and cause a leak. Lower the vehicle. Add 3 1/2 quarts of transmission fluid. See the owners manual for the correct fluid. If you put the wrong fluid in, the transmission will malfunction. Start the engine with the transmission in park and fast idle it but do not rev it up. Move the gear shift lever through the gears and back to park. Check the fluid level on the dipstick. It should reach the cold mark. Check for leaks. Your ready to drive. Keep a close eye on the fluid level for the first few trips and add a little fluid as necessary.

I just want to know where you add the transmission fluid in a dodge durango? i can't find it


Drive the Durango for 15 to 20 minutes to warm up the transmission fluid. When the fluid is warm, it will drain better and remove more contaminants from the engine. Raise and support the front of the Durango on ramps or jack stands. Place a large drain pan beneath the transmission.

Loosen the transmission pan retaining bolts with a socket wrench. Remove the bolts, but leave one at each of the four corners of the transmission pan. Slowly loosen the remaining bolts a little at a time.Fluid should begin to drain from the seal on the transmission pan. If the pan is stuck, break the seal by gently prying it loose or tapping it with a rubber mallet.

Support the pan with one hand and remove the bolts on one side of the pan. Allow the transmission fluid to drain until it stops. Remove the two last bolts. Remove the pan and drain the rest of the fluid.

Remove the three screws that hold the filter onto the transmission. Note that these screws may be Torx style. Install a new transmission fluid filter.

Clean the transmission pan and the magnet with solvent. Remove the old gasket material from the transmission pan. You may need a scraper to remove it all. Clean the mating surfaces with a lint-free cloth soaked in solvent. Let the pan air dry.

Put the new gasket on the pan and align them. Remove the gasket, apply a few drops of adhesive on the pan and replace the gasket. Realign the gasket before the adhesive dries.

Replace the pan onto the transmission and replace the retaining bolts. Tighten the bolts in a crisscross fashion to 150-inch pounds with a torque wrench. Return the Durango to level ground.




Refill the transmission with new fluid a little at a time, while checking the level often. Continue to add transmission fluid until it passes the "Add" mark on the dipstick, but doesn't pass the "Full" mark.

Start the engine, shift the transmission through all the gears and place the gear selector back in "Park." Recheck the transmission fluid level and add more fluid if needed. Don't overfill the transmission.

Replace the dipstick into the filler tube. Turn off the engine.

Need to change the transmission filter how and where is it located


Fluid & Filter Change Under normal service (moderate highway driving excluding excessive hot or cold conditions), the manufacturer feels that automatic transmission fluid should not need periodic changing. However, if a major service is performed to the transmission, if transmission fluid becomes burnt or discolored through severe usage or if the vehicle is subjected to constant stop-and-go driving in hot weather, trailer towing, long periods of highway use at high speeds, fluid should be changed to prevent transmission damage. A preventive maintenance change is therefore recommended for most vehicles at least every 90,000 miles (145,000 km).
Although not a required service, transmission fluid changing can help assure a trouble-free transmission. Likewise, changing the transmission filter at this time is also added insurance.
  1. Raise the car and support it securely on jackstands.
The torque converters on some transmissions are equipped with drain plugs. Because it may take some time to drain the fluid from the converter, you may wish to follow that procedure at this time, then come back to the pan and filter removal.

Before removing the transmission fluid pan, insure that the area is clean of dirt and debris

2. Place a large drain pan under the transmission.

Loosen all of the pan attaching bolts to within a few turns of complete removal


  1. Loosen all of the pan attaching bolts to within a few turns of complete removal, then carefully break the gasket seal allowing most of the fluid to drain over the edge of the pan.
CAUTION DO NOT force the pan while breaking the gasket seal. DO NOT allow the pan flange to become bent or otherwise damaged.

  1. When fluid has drained to the level of the pan flange, remove the pan bolts and carefully lower the pan doing your best to drain the rest of the fluid into the drain pan.ea833e6.gif


Once the pan is removed, discard the old gasket and insure that the mating surfaces are clean

Clean the pan thoroughly with a safe solvent and allow it to air dry

5. Clean the transmission oil pan thoroughly using a safe solvent, then allow it to air dry. DO NOT use a cloth to dry the pan which might leave behind bits of lint. Discard the old pan gasket.

The transmission filter is secured by a mounting bolt (arrow). Some models may use two bolts

6. If necessary, remove the Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF) filter mounting bolts, then remove the filter by pulling it down and off of the valve body. Make sure any gaskets or seals are removed with the old filter. The transmission usually has one round seal and a rectangular gasket.

7. Install the new oil filter screen making sure all gaskets or seals are in place, then secure using the retaining screws, if applicable.

8. Place a new gasket on the fluid pan, then install the pan to the transmission. Tighten the attaching bolts to 71-119 inch lbs. (8-13 Nm).

Fill the transmission with the proper amount of ATF

9. Add three quarts (six quarts if the torque converter was drained) of fluid to the transmission through the filler tube.
10. Remove the jackstands and carefully lower the vehicle.
11. Start the engine and move the gear selector through all gears in the shift pattern. Allow the engine to reach normal operating temperature.
12. Check the transmission fluid level. Add fluid, as necessary, to obtain the correct level.

Transmission leak


You can have a leak at the pan on the bottom or the front pump seal or the tail shaft seal at the very rear. Most of the time it will be the pan gasket. The constant heat and vibration can cause this to occur. Not a big deal. You can pick up another pan gasket and filter and change them both. The tail seal is an easy fix also. Remove the drive line and pop the seal out and place the new one in. If it is the front pump seal you will have to remove the transmission to gain access for replacement. Good luck.
