Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 97 geo metro 3 cylinder with a really bad front main seal leaking and would like to put this car back in service with gas going up up up!!!!! theres 200 thousand on the motor now so I dont really want to put a lot of effort into this old motor .Does anybody know if you can change that seal without pulling the motor???

1 Answer


Yes you can change the front seal without pulling the motor, I've done dozens. How much mechanical ability do you have ? Do you have a garage to work in? It is about the same procedure as changing the timing belt.
