I JUST have had the rear main seal replaced and it's still leaking oil. What can it be??? I only have 101000 miles on it. Thanks.

Was it properly installed? That type of seal is usually installed with a installer tool that ensures it goes on staright and to the proper depth in the seal retainer bore. The retainer also has RTV sealant around it.

could be the oil pan and not the seal. just a thought.

i pulled my trans to replace mine and found it(the leak) to be the gasket on the rear of the oil pan.

The leak isn't near as bad as it was, however there is still a leak. I'm contacting the mechanic tomorrow. Thanks.

That sucks, curious to know what else could be leaking, keep us posted. I thought about doing my seal too, just too expensive.....how much did you pay?
