GM 3800 Grand Prix GTP Front Oil Seal Timing Cover Crank Pulley Seal leaking oil
*Bringing post back up frm the dead*
What did you use to install the timing cover front oil seal?
I have the very similiar problem as this. Oil is dumping onto the crank pulley ( harmonic balancer ) and it is spining oil everywhere. I have replaced the oil seal twice and the issue remains. ( it is not ventilation issues, i leave the cap off while checking, already put tat in the equation from the gate). Now i just purchased a new harmonic balancer, and im isntalling it tommorrow with a new seal. Did you use anything special to instll the seal? Did you push the seal ALL the way in? was thinking maybe i was pushing it too far in and blocking that tank run off hole. i spotted that as well. or maybe i did not install it correctly, or hopefully the crank pulley was bad, rather than going with a race set, i got a new one. man this problem has been a nightmare and really having me aggrevated. Ive never had an issue such as this that i just could not tackle head on from the gate. all input would be greatly apprecaited!! thank you!
