View Full Version : Front and Rear Main Engine Seals

Is it normal to have very small oil leakage coming from the front crank seal?

And i saw evidence of a little oil coming out where the transmission meets the engine at the bottom. I'm assuming a very small leak at the rear main seal.

In both cases, it seems like it's really not enough to be concerned about to me, but i just need to know if this is normal-

I mean it's not to the point of dripping, but I can see the oil stain on the oil pan coming from the front seal.

Its normal, but not desireable. ;) Most people just live with it. Otherwise, you can replace them. The front is not so bad, but the rear requires you remove the engine or the transmission. :)
