    PTO Seal Question 4tec GTX

    with an 02 4 tec gtx I got oil that comes out of the seal where the shaft goes. I know some will come out with the shaft removed but it does not appear to come from the rubber that would fit around the shaft but between some sort or rotary piece and the PTO housing. I dont know if this is a seal that just gets knocked out or does it screw into place. The manual talks about locking the camshaft the instructions are pretty lackluster to say the least.

    does the boot with the bearing prevent the oil from leaking there? I guess fills up the boot and can not pass the bearing?

    you'll want to inspect the driveshaft where it enters the bearing..that's another source of leaks I've dealt with. you'll need some otiker pliers to replace the boot too..and and a new clamp..
