    Oil leak - Front Main Seal?

    Ive got an oil leaking coming from the passenger side of my daytona. I was told it was the front main seal that was leaking. I cant find this seal for sale anywhere? Anyone know where I can get one?

    What year?

    Its not called a front main, its just called a front crank seal. Dealer, any parts stores carry them. If its a CB, I like the OEM seals, and about $10 from the dealer, aftermarket # is 11111.

    Isn't it the same as the int shaft and cam seal? Or is it the different one?

    A good parts person would have been smart enough to figure it out. But yes just go to the dealer, they aren't that expensive.

    Felpro front crank seal I bought recently had the pentastar logo on it... Same with the oil pan gasket rubber end caps for a CB engine, pentastar logo on one side and the OEM part number.

    Who calls a 2.2/2.5 front crank seal a timing cover seal?

    I do think its stupid and misleading but thats how a majority of the parts stores list it.

    Make sure it isn't the intermediate shaft seal that's leaking. The int shaft seal leaked on my GLHS and the way it dripped down the block it looked like the oil pan or crank seal was leaking.

    Probably a good idea to replace all three if they are old since the belts are off already.

    The PVC is all messed up. I just got the car and the previous owner didnt know what he was doing. He has no PVC valve but has a rubber line with a small inline filter connecting the intake with the outlet on the valvecover... It will be fixed next weekend

    Re: Oil leak - Front Main Seal?

    I am having a hard time following how the PCV is hooked up. But it sounds like it could be blowing boost in to the motor? That maybe the cause of the leaky seals.

    I'll try and get a pic in a couple weeks when I get back to the car... But how exactly should it be hooked up?
