The front engine seal on my vehicle is leaking.
Hello, if the front crankshaft seal is leaking, the only way to stop the leak is to replace the seal. The harmonic damper needs to removed for access to the seal. Other parts may have to be removed like the engine cooling fan or radiator to get enough room for access. Often times, along with the seal, there will be a sleeve to be installed on the snout of the damper so there is a smooth surface for new seal to seal against. You may need the aid of mechanic since special tools are needed to remove and install the harmonic damper and seal.
