For this to be done you must purchase a rear main seal by visiting your local parts store and then you must incline the engine remove drive shaft, remove transmission mount, and remove the transmission then you are able to access the rear main seal.

How much crankshaft end play should there be?


Virtually none. If you have significant crankshaft end play, and you are not leaking oil, don't worry about it. If you are leaking oil from the rear main seal or from the pulley seal, consider rebuilding or replacing your engine before it seizes.
Recommendation: DRIVE IT 'TIL IT DIES. Replacement engines for your vehicle are abundant and not particularly expensive.

How to replace a rear main seal in a 2001 chevy 2500


several things, the rear main seal is accessable by removing the transmission. if this vehicle is standard transmission, then would recomend new clutch at this time given the amount of labor involved. if automatic, remove drive shafts, transfer case, transmission, and flexplate ....replace rear main. approx 5 hrs.

How do i change da rear other seal on the rearend of a 1985 chevy silverado


Replacing axle seals requires removing the differential cover,removing the spur gear bolt/shaft,removing the C clip,then sliding the axle out.You will have to press the bearing off of the axle to remove the seal,which usually will break the bearing(might as well replace it anyway on an '85).Removing and replacing the bearing should be done with a shop press.

GM never uses exhaust manifold gaskets, it is a machined fit. The rear main may be two piece in this year, it depends on what engine the car has, you never say, if so you must remove the oil pan. Also if it is a one piece you need the installation tool to install the seal, if you don't do it right it will likely leak even worse.

I have an 83 silverado short bed and im about to pull the tranny out to get it rebuilt and the rear main seal may be leaking as i put oil in and it leaks out pretty fast. my tranny is covered in oil and so...


I'm fairly certain that your engine does not have a full circle external main seal (if when you remove the trans and flywheel you find the rear crank flange is bolted to the crank and not part of the crank, then I'm wrong) If it's not an external seal, it is two piece, located in the rear of the main bearing cap. That makes it necessary to remove the engine oil pan and the rear bearing. Before contemplating doing anything with that, make very sure that the leak is not from the intake or valve covers first. Otherwise you'd be doing ton of work for no reason. Wipe everything down and look carefully. If it's leaking fast it shouldn't be difficult to see.

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.
