Oil Leaks...


Recommended Posts

:banghead: So when I did the KDP fix, I bought the fel-pro set. Which came with a 1year warranty. Well, I do not have any proof of purchase, cause I threw the receipt away. :doh:

To get a crank seal, its in the range of $30-40!

Man, this sucks!

My question is this:

- In order to do the crank seal, can I remove the seal without removing everything again just to get the cover off? Or can I just take the dampener off and can remove the seal then?

I must be sadistic as I would almost pay to do your crank seal :lol: It's not that hard to do and it's neat getting to see all the gears. Never seen that guys writeup, very nice pics. However! I think I have excessive blowby that actually blows oil out of the seal rather than the seal being bad. The dipstick on mine is always out 1/4" when I pop the hood and I just have lots of reasons to believe it is excessive. I have a lot of oil leaks on stuff that I have just changed the gasket on, sometimes multiple times and it always leaks afterwards. I have done the timing cover 3 different ways and I think the cover is fine but the seal keeps leaking and I know it's on there right and I think I have gone through 3 of them now.

Ummm... I've never replaced a crank seal yet... So I'm not sure if you can do it without pulling the cover or not.:shrug:

I'm coming to a day when I know I've got to do mine soon. I'm getting the same wet spot... :rolleyes:

Ugh, lol. Someone out there has to know!

I just found out though, that if I need one of those speedy sleeves, I can get one from O'reilly's!

But it will still equal the price of how much it cost on the net! Although, I will save on shipping.

Hmm... now that I think of it, maybe the leak will stop. I think I may have the same problem as you. As I think my injectors introduced too much diesel and caused the blowby as well?

Maybe I will wait a little and see what happens... Might just have to change my oil. I know I put that darn seal on good! :nono:
