Rear main seal in 1998 plymouth breeze 2.0

For that seal, you need to remove the transaxle and the flywheel/flexplate. To remove the transaxle, you need to consult a repair manual. It's pretty involved, and you need to support the engine from above, hang it somehow, to keep it from dropping when the transaxle is removed.

Oil leaks under a 1997 super saloon automatic . leaks below bell housing

Could be a couple of possibilities that you'll have to get into looking for. Rear oil pan seal, rear main seal or occasionally rear intake seal will leak down back side of engine. Wipe down motor or spray w/brake clean and watch for leak.

Have oil leak not heavy, but it leaks any answer were it could be coming from..

Valve Covers, Head Gaskets, Oil Pan Seal and a number of other spots. You'll need to clean the motor with Gunk Engine cleaner and then look for the largest build ups of oil and crud to get a better idea where it is.

1998 Plymouth Breeze Leaking oil. Not an immense amount, but enough that I would like to get it fixed. I have gone to many so called "experts" and well lets just say im frustrated. Some have said that it...

The head gasket has been redesigned ( a multi layered design) for the 4 cylinder. Oil leaks are common. The coolant doesn't always leak with this condition. It is far cheaper to just add oil as needed. However,the new head gasket is far better than the original. be sure to surface the head to get the best possible repair. looking into the engine compartment the leak would be on the right side of the head on the firewall side.

I have a 1996 plymouth breeze it is leaking oil from the driver side toward the top of the engine and howcan i tell if the cv shaft needs replaed i have a used one will it work? it also has a problem wih...

Oil on the top of the engine wouldn't be coming from a cv joint.
If you are lucky it's leaking out of the bottom of valve covers. If it's a main seal in the front or back it's a bigger problem.

You can tell if a CV joint is going bad, because it will make a grinding noise/ jerky in a tight turn. They usually go bad after the rubber boot is cracked or torn. If the used one is in good condition it could be used, but if it was removed from another car it may be worn also.

Oil leak in a 98 plymouth breeze 2.0

I've had a 1990 Acclaim, a 1990 Shadow, and a 1998 Breeze, all have a head gasket leak. The Breeze was the only one to have oil leak and it was on the rear of the engine. I'd guess that's your problem.
