Transmission Rear Oil Seal Related Repair Advice

  • If the rear transmission seal is being replaced, the sealing surface on the driveshaft should be inspected for damage. A damaged sealing surface could damage the newly installed rear seal.
  • The rear transmission mount should be inspected for damage whenever a leak is noted from the rear transmission seal. An oil soaked transmission mount will quickly degrade, requiring replacement.
  • On some 4WD vehicles, the rear transmission seal may leak directly into the transfer case, resulting in a low transmission fluid level with no visible leak. However, the transfer case will be over full.
