1997 nissan pathfinder le
146k

so i just got recently got new head gaskets(they blew after the car overheated when the fan clutch failed), water pump(leaking), drive belts, egr valve(stopped working), hoses,(kept leaking) and a thermostat(stuck open) and you would think thats it no more problems

nope after driving the car, a week later my rear main seal started leaking oil(im pretty sure its the rear main seal because i see oil dripping off the bell of the transmission)

so my question is, would you have to drop the tranny to get to it?
and anyone know how many labor hours would this take?

thanks for any help

Yes, it involves dropping the tranny/transfer case out.
Also removing the flywheel/flex plate is a must.
I'm not sure how much a pro would charge but if you are going to do it in your driveway, plan on a day, with the right tools.

Good luck!
