If you dented the pan, it's possible but still not real likely that the rail gasket was damaged but I'd actually look at it real closely and first, see if it's trans fluid or engine oil that's leaking, then clean everything off, start it, and find the exact leak source. I've broken the trans cooler lines at least three times going off-road, in the same place you say yours is leaking....The last time it happened, I re-routed them to keep it from happening again.

I have a 93 grand Jeep Cherokee Laradeo ,to change the oil pan seal , and or the oil filter housing to change the O rings , or the timing cover seal or the rear seal , dose one need too lift up or pull...


The oil filter housing and the timing cover can all be worked on with engine in car.
For the rear engine seal (rear main seal), the transfer case and transmission will have to be removed to access the seal.
Most of the time, the oil pan can be removed without raising the engine. Check your clearance under there for anything obstructing removal. (I loaned out my Jeep manual and never got it back!) On some cars, engine needs to be raised about 4 inches for pan to clear the oil pickup tube. Don't know about your Jeep.

Sounds like the rear main oil seal on your motor is leaking. In order for it to be replaced, the transmission has to be removed. Not an easy task for the backyard mechanic.

In the bottom of the there a slight oil leak i was wondering is it to change the seal in the oil pan


Hello. Check first to make sure that the leak isn't around the oil plug itself. If not, then the fix is to replace the gasket. J.

New oil pan gasket leaks at the rear.


Try again use silicon sealant where needed eg ends of rubber All bolt holes in pan need to be "peaned" back (hit with ball hammer) Watch torque settings. Often too tight splits gasket. Clean Dry surface = no oil
Make sure it's not the main seal leaking !

HI, this is just a pan seal that as failed to do its job due to age or defective nature. Once this faulty pan gasket is changed, the leak will stop.

please rate and have a great day.

Oil leaks


clean off the area where you suspect the leak is then run and check. The only way to change rear main seal (and have it actually work) is by removing crankshaft. I have seen this attempted at least a hundred times and never seen one yet that didn't leak. Some of the new oils for "older engines" have a seal softener in them tha usually will help but don't expect results for months...it took years for seals to harden & wear.
