Rear seal leaking on 2007 ford escape

In order to replace the rear main seal you will need some auto repair tools and experience . this is a big job , the transmission must be removed to replace this seal, also make sure that the seal is the leak,

oil always flows down, a leak on the top of the engine will flow down and drip at the center rear and look like a rear main seal , make sure that is the leak!!.

Depending on what engine you have and if it has 4 wheel drive the time for a shop to do is from 7 to 10 hours depending on engine size and 4wd,

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.

Rear Axel Seal

Wheel, brakes etc that are in way of pulling axle out have to come off. Drain rear end fluid, remove rear housing cover, remove bolt that holds pin in differential, remove differential pin, push in slightly on axle to remove "U" clip that holds shaft in, then slide shaft out. replace seal. Reverse procedure for re-install & fill with gear lube. If any questions, get back to us.

Finding drain plug on a 1998 ford explorer

Could possibly be the pan gasket. The other things that may be your leak would be the rear main seal or the front crank seal. If the oil is coming out from the rear of the oil pan then it is most likely the rear main seal. If you have high mileage on the vehicle in excess of 100,000 miles this becomes even more of a possibility. The front crank seal will leak at the back side of the crankshaft pulley and blow back towards the rear of the engine. I would vebntire to say it probably is the rear main. To replace the rear main you will need to remove the tranny and the flywheel and then the retaining plate for the rear main seal. Unfortunately Ford went to the one piece deal years ago. If you need more assistance please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are all here to help you with all questions. Good luck.
