Johnny Stringer: I have what seems to be a rear main seek leak on my '97 Z71...open to suggestions...

David's Favorite Videos: I always give the main pulley a quick polish with some fine Emory cloth to take out the tiny groove where the seal has been riding, otherwise the new seal won't last as long.

Jake Grimsrud: ***All Honda engines rotate over counterclockwise!!! For these engines, strap a chain wrench around the crank pulley to hold it still and loosen with a cheater bar, or use impact wrench as suggested.

Chadnmurfreesboro: Excellent vid, Scotty, and great editing. Thanks!

Kevin spacey: Just did this one my 98 Grand cherokee, but the main thing i replaced was the wobbling balencer and loose timing chain...  I replaced the water pump, timing cover crank gasket and the thermostat... but once i got it together again it started leaking oil...So i had to take the radiator out again and all that fun stuff and turns out the balencer when i put it back on musta rubbed the side of the crank seal and tore it a little...  Thank god the 2nd time around it didnt.. geesh what a pain taking all that apart

Dobie Mairu: Scotty you are a legend my friend thanks for the tips

camdenigga: thanks

googiefive: hey scotty that seal installer you're using is over 100$ right? is there any alternative to get around buying such an expensive tool?

moneyhungryyt: I just changed my rear main seal on my mustang and the seal comes out with a retainer housing. When i pulled it out there was a black ring that fit on the front of the seal, this ring does not fit with my new teflon seal. The seal went on fine with the housing but because the new seal has a rubber lip on the front the ring wont go on. Im wondering if this ring is important??

Taylar Gatson: Hi Scotty, where did you get your pulley puller tool? thanks

My Frankenstein Monster: ahahah all these oil leak video he made except the spark plug is what my car has... except its a mazda and for those who has one knows it will take a miracle not to break another thing while trying to fix something else

Tommy Fx: HOW about the rear engine seal?

CallMeRabbitzUSVI: Hey Scotty Kilmer, I took my car (Acura Cl 3.0 V6) to a mechanic and he said my crankshaft seal is busted and needs to be replace. But he also said if he were to change out that seal it will increase pressure inside the engine and blow out the other seals since my car engine is so old. Is there any truth to this?

P.S. He also said that since the oil is leaking unto the timing belt it is causing the belt to be stretched and needing to be replaced as well

Mr. Finger: And what if the crankshaft bolt is on so tight that you break your actual crankshaft?

Matala Maranyane: Hi Scotty I have a Toyota Cressida 2.0 GLE that has the same problem, I notice you took out the fan belts etc. to replace the seal. My question is, won't that affect the timing, requiring me to set it again? P.S. I'm new to cars

Jesenia Khan: Scotty Kilmer, thank you so much for your help,we will try and get that done as soon as possible.

Jesenia Khan: Scotty I have a question about my 1996 dodge intrepid 3.5L V6. Its starting to leak from under the timing cover. Its leaking like crazy! you think there is a Oil leak additive that will fix the problem temporarily? Its leaking really bad now, but don't have the budget to replace the parts.

Radio Controlled: Every job comes with a price~ Seriously, he looks like Rumpelstiltskin. xD

theoriginalbillholt: How likely is it that AT-205 would fix this problem? Thanks! I have some 250,000/20-year leaks that I'm trying to gradually identify and correct -- with some success thus far. I'm going to use some AT-205 in my efforts.
