This can be accessed by removing transmission and flywheel. Just call a dealer or repair shop for a quote. Should be about 5 to 6 hours labor and 100.00 parts.

SOURCE: Rear Main Seal leak on 1996 toyota camry, 6 cyl sedan automomatic

Rear main crank seals are very difficult and time consuming to replace. The seal doesn't cost that much - it is the labor/tiime it takes because --- you've got to take the whole car apart --- that is both
front CV joints have to come out -- then the tranny has to come out - I have a 1996 Camry and it has an irritating rear main seal at 147,000 miles and I have not had it fixed because the shops tell me it will cost around $650 to $800 for them to do it --- $1200 is pretty excessive for that job!

Your power rack and steering is not so hard -- most shops in this area would charge $650 max for that job including the price of the new rack and pinion. Pretty easy job -- half the cost is labor - the other is for parts.

Any more questions --- reply to manuel.conde@motivaent.com

Hello, it's not "easy" but, it's doable.
You'll need to follow the instructions and don't take shortcuts. ask for help if you need it.
Use this link to get an idea of what is involved. Ignore the "remove transmission" part. It can be done without removing the tranny. If you decide to do this buy a service manual to help you. If you have any questions feel free to ask.

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.

I have done many the transmisson has to come out to replace it but your price is way out of line, should not be more than $400.00 give me a zip and I can get you a certified shop that can do it for less with a warrenty.

SOURCE: cost to replace rear main seals on 2001 jeep gr. cher. ltd.

Actually yeah you are in luck that combination only requires dropping the oil pan. The seal is actually fairly easy to do it yourself, if your inclined. Parts about $20.00 and it's book rate is 5 hours. around here shops charge around $85/hour. About $500.00 out the door or under $50.00 if you want to get greasy. Here's a good picture guided step by step on a Jeep CJ with a 4.0 liter, yours is pretty much the same:

I have had my rear main seal replaced 3 times and it is still leaking. Could this leak be coming from somewhere else? The first mechanic assumed it was the rear main seal, and the others I informed them...


First off i would hope that there was some waranty coverage for this repair.

Is the fluid leak indeed oil (black/brown)? If so that would be the rear main. Problem could be the surface around the seal on the engine has a defect or space.

If the fluid leak is a reddish color this is transmission fluid and would be the torque convertor leaking not the rear main.

Good Luck!

Replaced rear main seal on 5.7 but still seems to be leaking. Any suggestions?


Be sure it is the rear main seal,there is a cam plug that could be leaking,but if it is the rear main oil seal leaking,then I suggest removing it,and installing a rear main repair sleeve,this will give it a new surface to ride on,the crankshaft may have a groove cut into it from the oil seal,this will remedy the problem.If this was at all helpful,please rate,thank you.

How much can i get for my 1997 oldsmobile cutlass supreme that is in good condition and runs, but has a rear main seal leak.


to replace the rear main seal on that car is expensive and may cost as much as the car is worth,it depends on the mileage and body condition, maybe 1000.00, a 1997 cutlass supreme in good condition,with 100,000 miles can sell for 2000.00. yours needs a rear main seal.and you say its in good condition inside and out then start at $1400.00.

Fluid leak from the seal between the transmission and engine about a drip every 5 seconds when running


would suspect that it is a rear main oil seal in the engine...not good and costly to repair since the engine and transmission need to be seperated for a 10 dollar part. is it oil that is leaking?

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.
