I have been dripping oil on the garage floor for several months and addding quite a bit recently. Last weekend I got under the car, cleaned off all; the road grime to try and see if I can tell where the leak is located.

I believe it is coming from teh main seal under the harmonic dampner. Has anyone ever replaced the seal themselves. Do I have to pull engine to replace. It looks like I might be able to get to the pulley through the right front wheel well.

Any suggestions?

Sounds like you're talking about the oil seal in the timing chain cover. The replacement seal comes with the timing chain cover gasket set.

Odd for that to leak (in my experience) unless someone has been in there jacking around and half-a$$ing a previous job of some sort. Or if the car has been setting for a long time....

If you decide to go after it, suggest you see my other remarks in the post "'94 3.0 Timing Change Cover - Coolant Leak"

Have fun
