GOOD SIZE RUBBER HAMMER BANG ON THE PAN LEFT TO RIGHT. REPAIR ANY DAMAGE BEFOR PUTTING BACK. THESE PANS CAN BE A B...H
TO GET OFF ALSO BE CAREFULL NOT TO DAMAGE CRANK GETTING OLD SEAL OUT. HOW MANY MILES ON THE ENGINE?
SOMETIMES SEAL WONT DO MUCH GOOD IF BEARINGS WORN,PISTON RINGS WORN (BLOWBY CREATING CRANKCASE PRESSURE,ALSO CHECK PCV SYSTEM!!

Thanks in at autozone.com site it says to pull the trans to change the rear seal ,but im assuming that you can do it by removing the oil pan,is this right?i also will check the pcv valve

THIS IS A TWO PIECE SEAL SO TRANS. HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH REPLACING SEAL. IF YOU HAVE NEVER DONE THIS BEFOR GOOD LUCK!
GET A REPAIR GUIDE, LOOK AT NEW SEAL TO SEE HOW IT IS MADE!
