Need to replace the Front Main Seal

the front main seal is the one that is fitted just behind the front pulley on the crankshaft. Remove the pulley / harmonic balancer and pry out the seal carefully . Place the new seal in place and using a tube the same size as the largest dia of the seal gently tap the seal back into the case until it is flush with the case all the way round.

Losing oil form flywheel end of crankshaft. Already changed seal twice but ain't made any difference. any suggestions?

yes , depending on wheter you talking about torque converter seal or rear engine main seal , on trans if your front pump bushing has excessive wear then it will not seal because the torque converter input shaft will ride on seal more than it is supposed to and also it will not run true, also check TC mounting of flex plate if you flex plate is not centered then it will rotate out of balance and cause leaks and pump damage, if you talking about a rear main engine seal you may have a issue with run out and or bearing wear issues cause seal to not be able to do its job, check all those issues, crank shaft end play as well as up and down play and check rotational run out on TC of trans and pump bushing in trans pump... hope this helps, thanks please rate...

My 1996 Toyota Camry is leaking oil right side front of vehicle

More than likely it would be the front seals, oil pump front shaft seal and gasket ( "o" ring), Cam seal, crank seal one of those. Have to remove timing belt in order to change these seals. I would change out all the seals and put a new timing belt on it. Depending on how many miles you have on your car I would consider a water pump as well because the timing belt also needs to be removed to replace this part. In other words... Costly repair, but instead of replacing the seals and solving the leak and then 2 weeks later the timing belt snaps, then you just paid twice for the labor. Check oil pan gasket first b4 you spend money on seals.

Main seal

First is it a front seal ,or rear main seal,(front seal,being were you see the pulleys and fan belts,,you have to look at the bottom pulley,follow the shaft to the motor,where the shaft goes into the motor is the front seal,the pulley and everthing behind it has to come out then you pull out the seal,auto zone actually has free tool rental that you can pull the seal,and a tool to put it back in,if a rear main seal its where the shaft from the transmission meets the back of the motor,youll have to pull the trannsmission back,check where you see the oil leek from,the front seal you can do if mechanically inclined,but if its the rear you should take to a mechanic,if this helps please give me a fix ya vote
