How much should I expect to pay to have the seal fixed? Thanks
main seal is like 100 bucks in parts.. I figure its about 400 bucks for a shop to do it.. 4.0 you dont need to seperate the transmission from the engine.. buy it if you know how to DIY. just try to get it cash for 8500 or 8k.. since the economy is dad.
IMO before changing the rear main seal.. tighten the oil pan gasket and clean it up to see if it still leaks.. and yes the frnt drive shaft does spin in 2 wheel drive..
