Q: Main front seal

asked by on

Main front seal bad

My car has 203000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

The front crankshaft seal seems to be one of those universal oil leak points on a car. If you desire replacement, simply request crankshaft seal replacement and the responding certified mechanic will get this promptly and professionally resolved for you. Prompt replacement is recommended because in some makes and models, an engine mount is below the seal area. If oil continually drips on the rubber motor mount, such destroys the integrity of the mount and eventually not only will a seal be needed but a new motor mount as well. Please let us know if you have a follow up question or additional concerns.
