rear main seal -

can a leaky rear main seal ruin the clutch?

Thanks,
Bob

Re: rear main seal -

Do you mean rear main engine seal? If so, then the answer is yes. BTDT.

Re: rear main seal -

Sure can and will. When you're having it all replaced, get the techs to drill a weep hole between the engine and tranny cases. K motors previous to the 1200 had the weep hole, but it was eliminated from this generation. While in there have all the seals replaced, and get the revised clutch slave master cylinder (weep hole there too).

Re: rear main seal -

any write-up on the weep hole?
The rear main is being covered under warranty so I positive nothing else will get done. But thanks.
