Crankshaft oil seal Sign In

Im changing out my crank shaft oil seal. Im pretty sure this is the issue as oil is slinging all over my engine and getting on my belt. I have to torque off the gigantic bolt that holds my crankshaft pulley. I have to use an impact and in order to get the impact on the bolt i must remove my eadiator. However, i have transmission cooling lines attachrd to my radiator and i cant break them off to proceed. Any suggestions? Pic related. I own a 99 lincoln towncar v8 4.6

Well it wont let me post the picture. Its on the left aide of my radiator. Two rubber lines that have regular hose clamps on them. I removed the clamp but no matter how hard i pull i cant get the line to budge. I tried breaking it loose by jamming a flathead under it and that barely made a difference.

Twist it to break the seal.

Whenever i twist the nuts holding them on - a thick grwwn goop sprays out accompanied by some weird white gas. It almost sounds like it's hissing. Do i procees or is there a way to depressurise the line?

You need to recover the ac refrigerant if you are going to be disconnecting those lines. You don't need to disconnect those lines to remove the radiator, but now you have a leak and will need to replace the o rings.

It really appears like you don't know what your doing. Do you have service information on this? Does your ac system even work?

Well im poor and learn from my mistakes. My ac does work. I only twisted it a little before closing it back and tightening it. I dont see another way to remove these lines. I need to get my whole radiator out. Condensor and all. Trying to make room to fit my impact in to remove the crankshaft

Re: Crankshaft oil seal Sign In

Removing an AC condenser just to remove a crank pulley is just stupid.

You don't have the equipment or knowledge to do this job. Give up while you only messed up a little bit.

Well i got the crank pulley out and replaced it. So that's good ! But now my Ac doesn't work and it nakes a distinctive humm when i engage it. Do you think it could be low on freon? Some did drain out when i opened those lines up. Thinking i depressurized the ac lines and a pumping in frwon would solve it

The best course of action is to have someone recover what is left in the system. Then replace the line o ring. Last have it vacuumed and recharged with the correct weight.
