Front main seal is pressed into the front engine cover, not behind it.View attachment 77854 View attachment 77855 Okay guys so I’ve got a 2013 Genesis Coupe 2.0t and I came to find out oil was being sent from the serpentine belt all over my engine bay. After some diagnosing I’m 93.675% sure it’s the main seal behind the timing cover. I decided I was going to take on the task because I can’t afford thousands at a mechanic. At this point I’ve got the bumper and bumper cover off, cooling fan, reservoir, and serpentine belt off. What is the best way to go about taking off the crankshaft pulley, and what pulleys do I need to take off to get to the timing cover? If anyone has some advice or can help walk me through the process please reply, thanks View attachment 77854 View attachment 77855
Welp the pulley moved under little to no pressure counter clockwise while in 6th gear all brakes on. Is this the end of the world ?Front main seal is pressed into the front engine cover, not behind it.
Manual: stick it into gear and have the hand brake on. The break the crank bolt loose.
Automatic: take off the valve cover and use a spanner on the cam where it looks like it's meant to fit a spanner. The rotate the crank gentle until the spanner is binding against the head, then break the crank bolt loose.
Might have to use a hub puller to get the pulley off.
Take photos of the old seal BEFORE removing.
Pull out the old seal with a flat head screwdriver, be careful to not mess up the surfaces.
Look at photo of the old seal of orientation, then press in new seal and put everything back together.
Nope, just means the clutch/pressure plate isn't enough to hold it.Welp the pulley moved under little to no pressure counter clockwise while in 6th gear all brakes on. Is this the end of the world ?
Okay well I put my car back together for now and it’s running fine, I’m gonna borrow an impact tomorrow and see how it goes. I appreciate the advice hopefully everything goes well.Nope, just means the clutch/pressure plate isn't enough to hold it.
Could try the automatic approach, or use and impact gun with it in gear to get it off. ( NEVER use an impact gun to install things, only remove things. unless its lug nuts)
