The oil pressure sending unit? Btw, if it is the rear main leaking and you don't want to drop the oil pan in the back, you'll need the 1-piece main seal install tool. I think i got mine at O'rileys. They may actualy loan those out now.oh and don't forget the sensor that's in the back of the intake, i forgot what it's called someone help me out, it tends to leak also
As others have stated here, check the area at the back of the intake manifold (Intake Gasket) for leaks? And also check the "Oil Pressure Sender" unit for leaks. To do this, get some engine degreaser such as Gunk etc.., then spray down the rear area of the intake mainifold and let it set a few mins, then rinse the area with water and let it dry. Run the car for approx 20-30 mins, get it back to the house and with a good light source, Check the rear of the intake, oil pressure sender and rear main seals for any leaks. Here's a couple of pics for the rear of the intake manifold and the rear main seal area for reference.I think my rear main seal is leaking. The last rear seal I did was the old 2 piece type. What am I in for if I try to fix this? I just want to make sure I'm prepared before I pull the trans out.
Sure. Start on page 1 of the thread you just added to and read the parts about the rear of the intake. Sounds like it may apply.I have a constant oil leak on my 96ss when running with the car in park u can see oil dripping out the dust cover between the motor and transmission I'm thinking it is my rear main seal on my motor an someone help me out on this matter

what front seal ? crankshaft ?I have oil dripping from the inspection cover too. But the oil odor comes in to the car when the heat is on. I didn't feel any oil on the rear of the engine. One day I'll pull the intake, just because it's so common.
I know my front seal is leaking.
that/those front seals leaking will cause you to think it is the rear main seal. when I did the water pump opti last year the front cover was leaking [bolts loose ] the very small oil leak stopped at the flywheel cover. I did have some other small leaks when I used some of the bars oil stop leak those small leaks stopped but did not stop the front cover loose bolts from leaking.. no leaks now ..thats good IMO for a vehicle this old. I used to get a penny sized drip every few days ..It's the common seal, behind the water pump. I just don't feel like pulling it apart.
