Just pulled my tranny ('91 FWD 5spd) because it's leaking gear oil everywhere from inside the bellhousing. I have a new input shaft oil seal as I believe this is the only place the oil can be coming from. I was hoping I would be able to get to it and replace it myself but it looks like the bellhousing has to be seperated from the tranny. Is this the case?
I have the same issue. First I thought I had a rear main seal leak but it is gear oil leaking out. I added a UV dye to the gear oil and it glows where the bell housing and block meet. So....it has to be the input shaft seal.
What is a fair price to pay a transmission shop to change this seal if I take them the OEM seal and transmission (removed from the car)?
Also, should I have them replace the bearing that comes out.
Part numbers of the bearing and input seal please.
When I did mine didn't need any presses, just take it all apart, replace that seal and put it all back together.
