If you have an owners manual it explains it in there.. I have a 2002 Chevy express van and you have to turn the key to the on position ( do not start). fully depress the accelerater twice then start the engine. this turns the oil light off in my van. ( this was in my owners manual)
several things, the rear main seal is accessable by removing the transmission. if this vehicle is standard transmission, then would recomend new clutch at this time given the amount of labor involved. if automatic, remove drive shafts, transfer case, transmission, and flexplate ....replace rear main. approx 5 hrs.
pull the transmission, and change the seal. Either that or you can change the PCV valve, and stop the crankcase from building up the pressure that is pushing the oil out of the rear seal. Chnging the seal is a $1200 job, and changing the PCV costs about $15.. Take your pick. If you opt for the rear seal, and don't do the PCV.. Don't come crying to me when it is still leaking.
check to see if there is damage, the seal should seal, is the new seal damaged? replace seal and watch closely for where it is leaking, you may need to de burr a piece or jb a piece to make a better seal.
this truck is equipped with an aluminum oil pan you could have 1 or several things going on... a stripped drain plug which is causing it to leak or it may be a leaking front seal or a rear main seal. If it is a front seal it is not to labor intensive. But if it is a rear main seal leaking it will require the transmission to be removed since the seal is a 1 piece rear main
Hello, it's not "easy" but, it's doable.
You'll need to follow the instructions and don't take shortcuts. ask for help if you need it.
Use this link to get an idea of what is involved. Ignore the "remove transmission" part. It can be done without removing the tranny. If you decide to do this buy a service manual to help you. If you have any questions feel free to ask.
