Here is the part number for the seal 6816000 As far as the trick, depending on your level of skill, there will be a tab on the seal itself and that should be positioned at 12 o'clock. You press the seal firmly onto the drum until you hear a pop. The clamping ring which holds the seal on is 8 mm bulb which reusable. The seal has to be stretch over the outer metal casing.

Flywheel shaft leak

i think you have a gy engine
that is a vertical split you should get away with just replacing the old seal
remove the flywheel off the shaft
making sure not to lose the wood-ruff key
with a small drill
drill two small holes in the seal
with two thin screw drivers place them in the holes and draw out the old seal
with some sealant put the new seal in place
and with a flat bit of wood and a mallet or a small hammer
tap the seal into place
then put the wood-ruff key back in the groove
and replace the flywheel making sure to torque the flywheel down to the correct torque

I put a rear seal in a 1993 geo tracker,was not leaking,now i have put two seals in ,still leaking

which seal. ? rear of WHAT?
2wd, 4wd?
3sp,4speed or 5sp. tranny.?
my wild guess, is the rear transfer case leaks, and if yes, where.?
it can leak in 3 places. (ive rebuilt them and the boxes)

or the rear engine seal.

so the rear seal can be, in 3 places.
if you work on 4wd, it really can be 5 places.
6 counting rear of front axle.
that is because the exit paths are shared on many.

first tell me what you are driving like this.
97 geo 2dr, 5sp 4wd. like that, then we can answer in fine detail.

Oil leak 2000 alero, just replaced plug, not it, leaked out all the oil after I drove it 20 miles, please help, could it be a gasket or what

Check the oil filter. The old gasket might be stuck on the engine (two gaskets stuck together), or the new gasket might be defective, misaligned or missing.

Leaking oil fro the bottom front I had the motor changed and they say its the main seal . But i want to do it myself

Its likley the Crank seal, also called front main ( rear main being the end that meets the transmission.

Its pretty easy to do you just have to remove the serpentine belt, and remove the crank pulley, then you can pry out the old seal with a pick or screwdriver, clean the area from dirt and debris. then put the new seal in place, you can use a large socket that fits the ring of the seal, and hit it in with a hammer, keep hitting evenly around the seal so it goes in straight

Hi, I have a 2000 saturn LS2 3.0 v6, I got an oil change about 3 weeks ago, and my car started smoking today, I found out that half of the oil has leaked out of my car, I know that the leak is coming from...

That area is where the oil filter is and the oil pressure sending unit. Inspect the Oil filter to make sure that it's not leaking through a bad oil O ring seal, it's common for oil to leak from there is the filter has been put on to tight or to loose. If your oil pressure sending unit also have gone bad , it will leak from there. Also most important is to check your oil level, low on oil will cost you a new engine, note also to make sure that oil is not leaking from your oil drain plug at the bottom of your oil pan.

Best thing to do id to check your oil level and addif it's low and bring it back to the place your had your oil changed and let them know that your losing oil from the bottom of your engine. "oil filter area"

They will most of the time repalce the filter free of charger or just charge you for a new filter, but most likely that if it's a faulty filter. They will not charge you for a new filter.

Good luck and thank you for using Fixya.

What could cause an oil leak in a 2002 MB C240? What is the best case scenario and worst case scenario. The leak is actually a slow drip.

If you had the oil changed lately and the "O" ring stuck where the filter unscrews and someone proceeded to put the new filter on without looking this can cause a problem. Putting too much oil in the crankcase can cause a seal to blow. A leak at the oil pressure switch. A loose or not sealed oil drain plug. You will need to try to locate whether it is coming from the bottom or at the top around the valve pan cover which is the most likely place, and if it that is the case; it still can drip through the night while it sets, which is missleading. If you can't find any noticeable places...that is a good place to the valve pan cover...seal it real well with RTV sealer, let it dry over night and see if the problem goes away.

if the water is leaking from the back left side of the unit then the seal/valve to the expresso water container is lose and leaking. you can either go the warranty route or open the back up and tighten the two screws holding the seat/valve in place.

1995 Chrysler Concorde transmission diagram

There are 3 places it could be coming from. (1) The outer rubber seal on the pump between it and the case (2) The metal clad seal in the center of the pump that seals against the converter hub (3) And, the 5 bolts that hold the pump in have washers under them. The seal around the outside likes to get hard and brittle with age, especially if it has gotten hot before, leading to cracks that leak. The converter seal will wear naturlaly from doing it's job and more so if the pump bushing is wore out. The bolts that hold the pump in can get loose because of vibration letting oil out around the threads and out into the world.

If you pull it out and don't find loose bolts or obvious signs of a leak, then I suggest changin out all the places I mentioned. If you take the trans out and tip it on it's ****, then the pump comes out with a couple slide pullers. Be careful not to let the clutch-pack(inputshaft) slide out any, this will make going back together easier. There is a gasket between the inside of the pump and the case that will most likely need replaced too so get that as well; it seals all the ports and passages around the pump. Replace the outer square "O"-ring and the metal clad seal in the middle, then lube the outer seal and set the pump in place. Line it up and drive it in with the handle of any hammer. Torque it down(23ft. lbs.) with new washers for the bolts or new bolts with integeral washers. Be sure to loctite the threads as well to prevent them loosening up. Wiggle turn the input shaft to double check it isn't bound up and then just put it back in the car.

It sounds like a pain and it can be, but, it's easy after you do a couple thousand. Just like falling off a log. Hopefully you just have to do it once.
