Answers :

The seal is not expensive ($8). If you are to replace it, replace the front seal also ($4). It need to take the camshaft out to replace these seals.\015\012Open the top cover ( Need to replace this valve cover gasket $30), remove those bolts holding the camshaft into place. Make sure to mark the position of the notch at the front end camshaft.\015\012If it is put back misaligned, your engine is not turning on.\015\012My advice is to take off all the spark plugs out so you can turn easily the crankshaft by hand to have the notch of the camshaft aligned straightly with the timing mark from the camshaft. It called TDC. From then you note the position of the camshaft before taking it out so you can return it in the same position. Good luck.

Ran over a large rock creating a hole on a braided section(expansion joint?) of my exhaust manifold piping to front exhaust piping on my 1994 Trooper S. What is this braided section called and can it be replaced independently from the manifold and front exhaust piping? Thanks


Thats the flex pipe probably attached to your converter. This type of pipe is used because of how the engine sits in the engine compartment and is used to reduce stress on the exhaust system. This can be done at home but it requires wielding skills. ... 1994 Isuzu Trooper

Need to know how to remove the bearings on the front spindles on a 4 WD 1985 dodge truck 250 3500lb front axles. they look like they should just slide out since i removed the gasket but they do not. I replaced the U joints and thought I should go ahead and replace bearings and oil seals(done with oil seals). I have tried prying them out but they are in there pretty good, didnt know if someone had a trick i could use or is there a special tool one needs. Thanks Billy

I think the front axle seals on my 1999 dodge 3500 4x4 need to be replaced. I am replacing the sealed bearing hubs and I wonder how big of a job it would be to switch out the axle seals inside the differential housing. I already drained the oil and removed the cover, but I am reluctant to unbolt the ring gear assembly. Would it be safe to leave the seals and hope that they don't leak? The truck has 200,000 miles on it and up to now has been a great truck. Thank you in advance for any help t

I have a 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 4x4. I had the front axles replaced a couple months ago. The right front axle boot is rubbing the axle housing and is now ripped.

I have a 1984 240 wagon Volvo with a b23f engine. I'am replacing all three front engine oil seals, but I have a problem? How do you loosen the A/C unit enough without dropping the whole unit, so that I can remove the fan belt, then I can remove the crankshaft pulley, then R/R the oil seal? Is there some built in slide mounts to loosen, so that I can move the A/C unit just enough to remove the A/C fan belt? Thanks

93 GMC Sonoma 4.3L, no Vortec, I got a Transmission leak that is dripping down onto my front cross exhaust pipe, not sure where it's leaking, got worse after letting it sit for about a week due to steering wheel repairs, not sure where to go, a friend told me it might be a seal and to put some brake fluid in, and it could possibly swell the seal, NEED HELP. Thanks.


If the transmission is leaking, it generally requires disassembly and replacement of the seal. I have never heard of using brake fluid to swell the seal, and wouldn't know how to get to the seal with that chemical.\015\012\015\012Good lu ... 1993 GMC Sonoma Club
