Rear Main Seal

Something happened between last night and this morning because as soon as i pulled in the shop this morning, and i had oil pissin out of the rear of the motor. the oil pan "gasket" was done wrong before i bought the truck, so i know that has to be done with the right ooby-joo from ford, but i think the oil is further back than the oil pan.

anyone pull the rear main seal and put a new one in? or know how much of a ***** of a job it is?

i know Haynes manula said theres a special tool to put it in

ill agree with cchase..i thought that my rear main was leaking...turns out it was leaking out of my turbo...and its still leaking...cant seem to find time to fix it lol. Look for oil around the trubo area or around the HPOP connections. I know those 2 spots are known for oil leaks

they're dry. and so is the valley, HP oil pump and back of the block.


i accept paypal

It looks like it's dripping from the corner of the oil pan, near the rear main. i mean it's a lot of oil, a puddle about 4" in diameter when i shut the truck off.
