    Hi I have a 94 gt with a bad transmission I think the rear main seal is leaking as well but going to replace it either way aa preventative maintenance. My question is, is there any other seals or gaskets that'll be easier to replace with the transmission removed? Thanks in advance!

    No other seals or gaskets back there besides the rear main seal.

    Do the clutch as well, if you're a manual.

    Thanks I was wanting to make sure while I was going to be under there and have access to it I'm planning on doing a manual swap if I can find all the parts I need and can afford them as well lol

    There are a few oil galley plugs in the back of the block also. Be sure to check these plugs for oil leakage as they are only pressed in plugs. As for the rear main seal, alot off horror stories can be found on this issue. People replace them and they still leak afterwards. If the crank has any grooves on it where the seal rides, your best bet would be installing a seal saver sleeve and a new gasket. Also, installing the seal with the rear main cap loosened increases the odds of the seal not being damaged. Just a little food for thought

    Thanks already know about the sleeve from a YouTube video lol planning on buying everything from the video to replace the rear main seal. I can buy everything from it and still come out a lot cheaper than paying a shop to do it.
