97 Sho Rear Main Seal

Home  \  Repairs & Maintenance  \  97 Sho Rear Main Seal

Working on a 97 Taurus SHO, V-8, auto ,, car came to us with rear main leak ,, we replaced the seal ,, started car ,, and within 10 mins,, the rear seal was leaking again .. poured oil down pvc and it dissapeared,, so we thought system is not plugged .. next removed oil pan,, and found rear seal out of place ,,, this seal is constructed like a grease seal on a front rotor .. metal on outside, { which needs to be forced into block,, } with rubber around crank shaft .. installed with loctite ..

Anyone had a problem like this before,, and would appreciate any help .. :banghead:

Thanks ,,, JEFF
