Rear Main Seal Replacement
So I hear that the rear main seal is something that often times needs to be replaced. I plan on replacing my rusting oil pain this summer, should I take the extra steps and preemptively replace the rear main seal?
I'm in the same boat... gotta replace my main seal (at least I think it's the main seal). I've got a itty bitty spot under the center, actually dripping from the v shapped metal on the transmission case. I'm assume this is the main seal. Not really sure how to check without getting under there pulling stuff off.

I just checked out the link as my leak is getting pretty bad. I'm can sometimes be "kinda" mechanical.... and I'm wondering if I should try this. I hate doing things that leave me totally screwed if I mess them up.

How about cleaning the engine nice and dry, including the back and then watching for the leak. If the usual suspects stay dry, what is left is the rear seal.
