    Do you realize this will mean pulling the transmission?

    Unless you are rather well mechanically inclined, possess a good sturdy jack (and jack stands), plus a means to both lower and then raise back up the transmission, I don't think I recommend that you attempt this.

    If you answer yes to the above, then I'd suggest you purchase a vehicle specific repair manual for the steps to R & R the tranny.

    You can also look for a repair manual for the transmission itself for the specifics of the repair itself.

The transmission will need to be removed to do this.The seal is rarely the leak,it is almost always the pump oring.This will require some tranmission skill and knowledge that i will be happy to share if you want to give it a try.

My 97 dodge intrepid 3.5 liter engine is smoking out the front of the engine not the exhaust. Can you tell me what is the Rear Main Seal and what is the Head Gasket and where to look for the two? If I knew...


The rear main seal is between the engine and transmission. Head gaskets are what seals the block and head of the motor. If the smoke is sweet smelling I would assume it to be a misting coolant leak from a small hole in the radiator. Even though that car is front wheel drive it's mounted longitudinally. Hope this helps.

Change front main seal , leaking oil around timing chain cover. could be seal around harmonica balancer.


yes, I just changed one of these recently. Had to take both front and bottom off engine. Very difficult repair, as there are no good jack points for the engine when you have all the motor mounts off.
Here is procedure I would recommend.
Remove starter and engine to transmission brackets front and back.
Remove transmission starter gear cover.
drain oil and remove oil pan.
put a block under the crankshaft and jack to release weight on motor mount.
remove front motor mount (by serpentine belt)
remove belt.
remove compressor and bracket.
remove crank pulley and vib damper.
remove timing cover. mark timing belt with direction of travel
loosen tensioner gear.
remove timing belt.
remove crankshaft timing gear and key.
remove seal and oil pump housing.
clean gasket surfaces.
replace seal and reverse procedure.

If you have questions, let me know.

I have a 97 caravan. ive gotten the transmission resealed, but is still leaking fluid. what do you think it can be??


What did you have resealed the oil pan on the transmission? there could be anything causing this including a bad radiator that's leaking fluid if it's towards the front of the car then it's there if it's between the engine and transmission then it may be the front pump seal or the tork converter seal.
