  1. I put in a new oil pan gasket and valve cover gasket. However, It turned out to be the rear main seal. I just put in a rear main seal stop leak 2-days ago, I havent seen any oil leakage since. I didnt think it would work, but so far it seems to be working. Give it an oil change first and then put in the stop leak. Dont over fill.
  2. I just replaced my oil pan gasket, I thought the leak was coming from there. I drove the car at leat 60 miles w/ no leak. Went to work and now the oil is leaking from the same place(where the tranny and engine meet). How difficult was it to drop the tranny?
  3. I finally traced the oil leak as far as the bottom starter bolt. I cant see where it's coming from after that. Going to to really look at valve cover like you said. Can it leak through the starter?
  4. Ok it's not coming from clutch fork boot. Oil is definitely down. I filled it yesterday. I let it idle and I saw oil dripping from the plate that separates the engine and the tranny. So it has to be the rear main seal. So my plan now is to drop the tranny, remove clutch, then the bearing is behind the clutch. Is that right?
  5. I see black fluid coming out of the clutch fork boot. Underneath is pretty clean, I'll also let it idle and watch. Thanks! I'll report back.
  6. haven"t done anything. Its been leaking a few drops for quite a while so I used stop leak and it did stop for sometime, but I guess the seal can only take so much. I'm pretty sure it's the seal. I never performed a big job like this before. looking forward to the challenge. once I remove the tranny is the seal on the tranny or on the engine?
  7. I found a oil trail down the street leading into my garage. Looked under my 240z and found a very large oil puddle coming from where the tranny and the engine meet. I believe its the rear main seal. If so do I need to remove the engine and tranny or can I just drop the tranny. I tried researching the proper steps on replacing the rear main seal but met with no luck. My Chiltons book says to remove engine.
  8. Thanks to those who replied. "Z Barn" had the item. Great customer service.
  9. Thanks for the help. I'll try them and I'll let you know. Thanks again.
  10. I bought 240z stock steering wheel on ebay with no horn mechanism. I thought all I needed was to buy a horn pad. Turns out I need the entire horn assembly. I've been looking for the part, but unfortunately I can't find it. So if anyone knows where to get one please let me know.
