Beverly, usually the seal is located behind the timing cover. The hard part is getting to the crank seal. Once you do...pry it out with a screwdriver. Grease the new one and install it over the crank with a socket that matches the diameter of the new seal and pound it in the groove. . John In Montana

It is on the front of the crank shaft. It seals the oil at the crank pulley.

AnswerCheck the crank pully bolt. If it has come loose you will have a leak.The crank pully bolt does not have anything to do with the crank shaft seal leak. Thebolt is independent of the seal. To replace seal remove crank shaft pully and you will have access to crank shaft seal, pull out & replace seal.

I believe it's called a trans-axle output shaft seal. Could also be the front differential pinion seal.
