Flywheel oil seal leaking


This is called the rear main oil seal or the torque converter seal depending on what type of fluid is leaking out. To replace either seal you must remove the transmission from the car. You will need special tools and skills to properly install the seals or they will leak in very short order again. I suggest you have a trusted shop or the dealer do this repair.

Replacement of rear main seal on a 2004 cherokee 4.0


You must remove the transmission to replace this seal. You also need special tools to install it, failure to use them dooms the new seal to leak right away.

How to repair front crankshaft seal leaks oil


Need to get at the crankshaft seal, usually by removing the crankshaft pulley and using a seal remover to take out the old seal, then put a new seal in.

Here are some instructions on how to do the 'rear' seal:
Rear Main Seal Removal & Installation 2.4L, 3.3L & 3.8L Engines To Remove:
  1. Remove the transaxle and flexplate. CAUTION
    Make sure not to damage the crankshaft sealing surface when removing the oil seal.
  2. Insert a flat-bladed pry tool or equivalent through the dust lip at an angle.
  3. Carefully pry the oil seal out of the engine. Pry against the chamfered edge of the crankshaft, do not damage the sealing surface of the crankshaft or an oil leak may occur.
To Install:
CAUTION
Smooth any burr or rough edge on the crankshaft with 400 grit sandpaper to prevent seal damage during installation.
NOTE: When installing seal, no lube on seal is needed.
  1. Place special tool 6926-1 seal guide or equivalent on crankshaft.
  2. Place the seal on the guide. Make sure the seal lip is facing the crankshaft and the guide tool remains on the crankshaft. Rear crankshaft seal installation (2.4L engine shown, 3.3L & 3.8L engines similar) chry-03-24-827.gif

    CAUTION
    Do not drive the seal into the block past flush. An oil leak may occur.
  3. Drive the seal into the block using a seal driver or special tool 6926-2 and handle C-4171 until the tool bottoms out against the block and the seal is flush.
  4. Install the flexplate and transaxle.
3.0L Engine To Remove:
  1. Remove the transaxle and flexplate. CAUTION
    Make sure not to damage the crankshaft sealing surface when removing the oil seal.
  2. Remove the oil seal with housing from the rear of the engine block.
  3. Remove the oil seal from the housing.
To Install:
  1. Clean the sealing surfaces on the seal housing and engine block.
  2. Use a commercial seal installer to install the seal in the seal housing.
  3. Apply a light film of motor oil to the seal lip.
  4. Apply silicone sealant to the oil seal housing sealing surface and install the housing with seal on the engine block. Tighten all bolts to 104 in. lbs. (12 Nm).

Rear main seal is leaking on a Ford Mustang 2003 V-6


In order to replace the rear main seal u have to pull the transmission out to access it, u will need a special seal installer tool to install the new rear main "full circle seal", it u don't use the special ford tool the seal will leak again, also if there is a groove worn ion the crankshaft the crank must be repaired or replaced or the or the seal will leak again, so this is avery diff job, a 9 on the scale of 1-10 with 10 being the mos difficult.

Oil seal leaking on 1999 gmc half ton 4w/d on front of transfere case do i need special tools or can I drop drive line and replace seal


billbohman: Unless GMC has had some change I am not aware of and that has not been published in service manuals for the repair of these units, the procedures are the same as any seal replacement and require no special tool. There are some universal seal installation tools which I would venture the majority of techs don't have because they substitute other tools in their place most of the time. Most techs will have a special tool designed from removing seals. However, the seal can be removed without it.
Just use a little common sense when removing a seal. Don't damage the casing.
Good Luck.

Leak at rear diff (pinion seal?) 03 4X4 ford ranger


the part is called the pinion flange seal, pull the drive shaft, remove the large nut on the flange the drive shaft connects to and remove the flange, then pry out the old seal and lube the lip of the new seal with motor oil and press it into the opening. The 7.5 hour estimate is way wrong, about 1.5 hours labor and $4 for the part.
