Front engine seal
 
I have a question, my 05 CTD 5.9 drips oil from the front seal after shutting it down. Can the seal be replaced by removing the damper, or do I have to remove the front cover of the engine and take the seal out the back of the cover. Either way, I can do it I just wanted to know without looking and get a big surprise. I know some Chrysler engines seals had to be removed from the back of the front engine cover. I know it's a Cummins engine, but I don't know what Chrysler decided to do with the front cover on the Cummins. Thanking you in advance,

Anthony C

You need to remove the cover to replace the seal. It goes in from the front, but you need a specific seal driver to get it set at the correct spot. There is also a special tool that comes with the seal to guid it onto the crankshaft. Installing one is a delicate process and the seal is really easy to damage.

you will need to drill a hole in the plasic guid tool as well there is a dowl pin in the crankshaft. if you do replace the seal your self dont drop the harmonic balancer . it is a a hydrolic damper and it will damage it badly.
