My mechanic said that I need to replace the rear seal and that the oil pan needs replacing. I have notice large spots on my driveway where I park. He said it would cost around $1,000.00 to repair both.
rear seal and oil pan replacement on 2001 Chevrolet Astro
Yes, that is in the ball park, because you have to remove the trans to replace the rear main seal, so that is about 5 hours, and then the oil pan means you have to remove lots of under carriage components and jack up the motor from its mounts, another 4 hours, so yes, $1000 is about right.
