When i go get the seal...what do i ask for ?


you can still drive it unless it leaking really bad. the pulley has to come off it has a bolt but you usually have to use a puller to get it off even with the bolt out. you can get the seal at any parts store. i call it a crank pulley seal.


Front main seal is leaking oil huh, time to replace the seal need to remove the harmonic balancer to replace easy job


fluid what fluid,taste it what is it? antifreeze is usally sweet, only a sip its poison ,water pumps have a weep hole for bad seals,maby oil, many flavors


I jus had someone look at it...they said its the water pump...we did nt taste it though

whats this world coming to?


Water pump isn't hard to do, just have to be careful with the bolts or they've been known to snap and pain to get out if they do.
