Re: Front Main seal leaks, Help
Thanks Trailisman for the response
I am confused - did you or did you not change the oil seal in timing cover?
-Sorry, yes i did change it.
If replaced -
Did you put it in backwards? (Sorry have to ask) Seal should be oriented so oil pressure forces the seal lip against the rotating shaft
- No, it is in correctly, the side with the spring is on the inside (same way it came out)
Was the seal surface on the balancer grooved? If yes - did you use a sleeve to repair?
-The balancer was not grooved
Were you extra careful not to damage the seal lip when installing the seal and the balancer?
-As far as I can tell nothing was damaged putting the balancer back on
if your engine is high mile, it is possible that excess combustion blow-by causes too much crankcase pressure. Is PCV functional?
-I believe so; it was replaced about 6 months ago
Is crankcase breather clogged?
-I do not know, i will check this
If you remove the oil filler does steam blow out? ...more when the engine revs?
-Not really, the steam kind of floats out, not with any noticeable pressure
Can you see oil leaking from the front seal if you hold the throttle to increase rpm?
- I have tried this(not knowing what RMP im at since I donít have a Tech.)and have not seen any oil leaking out, it only seems to do this after a load is put on the engine
