Q: Intermittent shaft leaks oil

asked by on

I have a 94 accord and the intermittent shaft is leaking oil.I have replaced the drive shaft seals but it still leaks.

My car has 180000 miles.
My car has a manual transmission.

It is possible that the seals may have been installed backwards. If these seals are installed backwards it can damage the seal and cause a leak. I would recommend retracing your steps to determine if the seals were installed backwards. If the seals were installed backwards I would recommend purchasing new ones and performing the repair again. If you are unsure about this repair I would recommend enlisting in the assistance of a qualified professional.
