Removal & Installation
2.0L, 2.4L & 3.0L Engines
If the rear oil seal retainer is not installed to the block, use a tapered ended screwdriver and hammer to remove the oil seal. Apply multi-purpose grease to the new oil seal lip. Using a seal driver, tap the seal into place. Be careful not to install it slantwise.
If the rear oil seal retainer is installed on the cylinder block, using a knife, cut off the lip of the seal. Using a taped ended prytool, pry the old seal out of the retainer. Inspect the oil seal lip contacting surface of the crankshaft for cracks or damage. Apply multipurpose grease to the new oil seal, then tap the seal in place with a seal installer. Be careful not to install the seal slantwise.
