SOURCE: Rear Main Seal Leak

THat seems to be in the ball park. If you have an AWD, the flat rate time is 14.4 hours. If you have just a FWD, it is 9.5 hours. In either case, the transmission has to be removed from the vehicle to access this seal. Sorry.

SOURCE: rear main seal leaks..does this affect transmission??

A leaking rear main seal will not cause your transmission to leak.

The transmission has its own seal and should not leak because of the engine rear main seal.

Due to the labor involved in replacing the rear main seal on the engine, it is best if you replace the front transmission seal at the same time if possible.

Installation varies on different vehicles but the principles are the same.

SOURCE: My 2001 chevy cavalier has a oil leak and I can't

You can buy a florescent dye to add to the oil and a light to make the dye really shine.
Clean the engine with "brake clean" from a spray can at the oil leak areas ....then run the engine.
Check for the start location of the leak.
Start with a short run time ....... then longer run time if necessary until the leak(s) show.
With or with out the dye ......this brake cleaning method should help locate the leak(s).

Oil leak locations could be...in order of the most common on your car are........valve cover gasket,oil filter,oil pressure sending unit,drain plug,oil pan gasket,crank pickup sensor,rear seal.

SOURCE: 2003 ford f 150 5.4 v8 leaking oil from top of

clean it off & inspect for a valve cover gasket leak, a head gasket is possible but unlikely. Use a flashlight & an adjustable inspection mirror (don't buy the cheap small one) to observe for the leak. if that fails you, then go to the local parts store & buy some Brake Cleaner, Florescent Oil Leak detector additive, and a lamp kit for UV dye diagnosis. use the Brake cleaner on all suspect/dirty surfaces, place additive in the engine oil, start engine turn on light & place glass'es on face, look for leak, ID & repair,, recheck work

Car running rough along with stains of what appears to be oil on both sides of car


Having worked on several cavaliers this year, I have found a tune up took care of the rough running condition, and all of them had valve cover oil leaks.
So consider replacing the valve cover gaskets and the spark plugs.

My oil light came on for my 1999 chevy cavalier, it was a quart low,I added it and it was fine but a few days later the oil light came on again


You must have an oil leak . And if you are looseing that much oil that fast its got to be a main bearing seal likely the rear . Get a good size peice of cardboard and put it under the vehicle near where the transmission meats the engine . Do it fast after you park it so the engine will still have some pressure and see where its leaking . You could not possibably burn that much oil in a few days no matter how worn the engine is . But the first step it to locate where its leaking from

1996 cavalier bad oil leak when running


Overfilled is not good but it would have to be very high to cause leak,There are numerous places in rear of engine that could be leaking.could be leaking from rear of intake,the oilpump drive o ring,but most likly leaking from rear main seal that seals at the rear of the crankshaft and the transmission will need to come out to access this seal. you will need to have the oil leak diagnosed to locate the exact spot.

Oil leak


ok ill try not to tell you rear main seal. but i can;t it sounds to me like they may have over filled it and as a result that will blow seals. i mean it is very easy to fix. and yet very expensive. also check the place where they put the oil into and check the oil pan gasket. use some break cleaner on it and clean it then add oil run it and check it
