RE: Crank Seal
I would like to know how the seal whistles if it doesn't leak oil, one would assume that if air can pass then so can oil. Does it leak oil?????

Subject: Crank Seal
It seems as if my front crank seal is bad. The loud whistling noise
must be the crank seal since after adjusting the alternator/water pump belt
the noise persisted. I pulled the dipstick when the whistling was happening
and then allowed the engine to sit for a sec, then I revved and the noise
was gone. I assume that is a good indication that the seal is bad. How
pertinent a job is this? I also have a popping noise which sounds like air
moving around down there. Is this an ASAP job?
