Scotty Kilmer: Fixing An Oil Leaking Crankshaft Seal
9T89: P.S. I need to replace the crank seal from my '94 Ford Explorer 4.0L V6
Pushrod Automatic 4x4 while I'm also replacing the timing cover gasket.
Engine is not lifted, I got everything in the front removed (rad, fan, fan
clutch, belt, water pump). I'm stuck at the point of pulling the harmonic
balancer out. I managed to get the center bolt removed but, the puller kit
bolts don't screw in from either having bolt diameters too small or no
threads in the balancer? Thanks Scotty for these videos, they're great;
hope you can help me here!
9T89: Hi, so we don't need to use a harmonic balancer pulley? We can use a pry
bar to pry the pulley off @2:22 ?
dazza: Hi Scotty
I have a fiesta mk5 ( a model which I understand you lot don't have) but is
it possible that the crank seal would cause clutch slippage In Some cars? I
was told this seal cab be the problem due to oil getting to the clutch
Jourdan Quintana: on the crankshaft seal
Paul Dimofte: nice and simple
Hunter Azaola: Scotty question how many crankshaft oil seal has a crankshaft?
Luke Martin: Scotty, where can I find one of those seal pullers? Matco tools?
KRAYSLiCK999: i did this job and it still leaks 2 seals after why ? the seal is seated
Mykohl Hawkins: Just pay $650 to have this done:-(
Phil Purdy: that is the most stupid way I've EVER seen to loosen a crank pulley bolt.
Slaughterproof: hi scotty. i have a chevy impala 3.4. i just had to replace the crank
pulley, tensioner and "crankshaft seal". the shop charged me 3 hours of
labor because they had to "take the engine apart" to reach the seal. i
asked if it was a rubber seal on the between the pulley and engine housing
and they said it wasn't. did i just get ripped off?
Andy Magill: When removing and refitting crank bolt could the timing move ?
Christopher Leon: Hey Scotty, I have a 2001 chevy impala with the 3.4. I am replacing the
head gaskets and was wondering if you take off the serpentine belt and
rotate the crankshaft pulley, will you have problems or will i ruin my
engine when putting the serpentine belt back on. Or do i have to take off
the timing chain cover and make sure everything is lined up???
scott rosenfeld: Dumb question: This is the front crankshaft seal not the rear one, yes?
169Phoenix: LoL WOW YOU"RE FAST!! You fixed a BIG JOB in 4 mins hehe :P
Jourdan Quintana: can you use the sealant you recommended for the main seal.the at??? clear
Mykohl Hawkins: Just pay $650 to have this done:-(
sweetsteven217: Hey, Scotty.
I have a 98' Toyota Avalon (16 years old) and it has been leaking oil for
months and months. It is bad enough that more than half the oil is gone by
the time I change it every 3,000 miles. I figured it's fine as long as I
keep an eye on it and it always has oil in it but I'm getting tired of
seeing smoke coming from the engine while driving on the street and
smelling burnt oil from inside the car. I know without a shadow of a doubt
that the smoke is coming from the bottom of the car. I asked a mechanic how
much it would cost and he said $600 at least but it depended on the size of
My question is.....what are my chances that the crankshaft seal is also the
problem with my car? I know that the crankshaft seal has NEVER been
jsguitar93: Hey scotty, how do i re tighten the crank if it keep spinning?
Jon wood: Scotty ur too funny! Thanks and keep on keepin on! :)
Scotty Kilmer: it does matter, put em in right
Scotty Kilmer: fan running is normal with AC on. Volvos pretty much have crappy ac systems
as they age, it doesn't get too hot in sweden ever. but the compressors are
know weaknesses, yours is probably on its last legs being that old
Lady Killer: ben fatto
Aznbebes: I watch his videos for the information most of the time, but sometimes I
just watch for the entertainment
lightningsmokerXx: You know what would be nice......if the BIG 3 would fire most of the people
in charge & take 3 groups of people to run the show..... Financial People
so they can say this is how much we have to spend to make the product, Take
Mechanics like Scotty & make them the engineers boss. It's ridiculous some
of these cars they make, and how hard some are to work on. ie, plastic
electronic Water Pumps.
Stephanie Shinsky: Hello!! I have a 2000 volvo s40 with an oil leak. We suspect it's coming
from the cam seal gaskets. I've already purchased the cam seal gaskets but
I'm not sure if I should get the crankshaft seal as well. It's a dual cam.
Do I need more than one crankshaft seal if so?? Do you have any experience
with this type of vehicle?? I have a mechanic to do the job but I feel he's
intimidated because it's a volvo. Any suggestions would be greatly

Scotty Kilmer: type "fixing car AC" in the search on my scottykilmer channel opening pager
on youtube, and watch some of those AC repair videos for tips. Start by
checking refrigerant level.
blorchinator: Hey Scotty, I have a 1995 Toyota Camry and it seems to be having a leaking
problem with the oil pan gasket. I was wondering what is the safest way to
take off the oil pan without damaging it? The car also needs a new PCV
valve and I was wondering how you remove it also.
jose l: I used a obd1 n it's a Lincoln towncar
Scotty Kilmer: tons of things can do that, so first, have the battery load tested, places
like auto zone do that free. As can a weak starter, which can also be load
Rick Karns: Stay away from Ford Taurus, my in laws have 1 and it's a money pit. It's an
03 with 137k and everything is going wrong with it. Gas gauge reads full
when you fill it up, drive 10 miles it reads empty until you shut off the
car and let it rest. Then it shows right amount for another10 miles, then
it's back on E and stays there until next fill up. I'll never buy another
Jim Dillinger: how could be gasket
Scotty Kilmer: Yes, it's very old.
Scotty Kilmer: generally put a new tension assembly on IF the belt is new
Scotty Kilmer: ticking is often internal engine wear, I would not buy it.
Gary Bressler: Hi Scotty, I have just replaced my belts on a 2001 infinity i30t. Just
before replacing them and now after I notice a rough idle when the heat or
air is on and not in economy mode. Does this mean the AC compressor is
failing. It's not horribly rough but I do notice it.
Felipe Alejandre: Can AT 205 reseal fix this problem?
Scotty Kilmer: oem parts are good, but some guys get carried away with tools. Most are
made in china these days anyway.
Scotty Kilmer: sounds like bull to me. He should have done cam seals and oil pump seals
too on that engine. The oil pump also has a small thin rubber gasket that
always breaks on that model. Find another mechanic
Scotty Kilmer: any of those Mother products (mother is a brand name, auto zones and many
stores carry them.)
2point0T: How can you tighten the bolt to the correct torque without the engine
Gyby1987: I've seen a van that got my attention. I do like it, but it has a ticking
sound. But everything else work just fine. What can the ticking doing be?
Should I buy it or not?
Jonathan Martin: My truck wont start by itself when i jump it it starts but when i try
without another car it wont start so i assume the battery isnt getting its
power to the car wich would be a connector problem if i make a video will
you look at it and please try to help me out???
Scotty Kilmer: that's a common slang for it, it is long so it "cheats" to give more torque
