Anytime I've ever heard of someone having a leak fixed at a shop it still leaked after the repair. With most seals I would get a seal from the dealer as opposed to a parts store. They always fit better. I just ordered cv shaft seals from toyota because I tried low and high quality replacements and both still leaked. If I would have just gotten them from toyota I would have same time and money.

I really gotta do that one of these days. HOA is *****ing at me about oil stains in the driveway, and the drip pan I keep under the jeep.

Since you're moving, save up the cat box goodies and dog ish and pile it all on the HOA chair's front lawn and driveway right before you leave. Rofl

I'm going to the dealer for my next one. The discount part store one I used is still leaking though some of that may be my poor skills in doing the repair

Don't be surprised if they won't warranty it for you even after they fix it. Jeep 2.5 and 4.0 rear main seals are crap. I have several buddies who are actual competent Jeep dealer mechanics and see 2-3 of these jobs a week. They will always leak again! The 4.0 I took out of my Jeep has 42K on it and has had 2 main seals done by dealerships and it was nice and moist in that area when I removed it last month. Most people unknowingly tear or damage the top seal when installing it. There is a special lube they use that helps this, but you don't really know until you have it all back together. Mine never actually leaked, just let enough by to leave residue on the back of the oil pan which would get nasty after one trip in the dirt. I had one replaced when my engine got a new cam/lifters/OP/OPDA at 15k, and the other because I just wanted something to do when it was still under warranty. Then I just rinsed and repeated.

Man, drove it a bit and leak got a little worse. Ah well, after 26 years I'm used to constant leaks
