Replace the front crankshaft oil seal on a GM 3.1L V6

Richpin's Auto Care shows you how to replace the cam over seal on a GM 3.1L V6 engine. Once the vehicle is raised and is safely supported by jackstands, you'll be taken through the first step which involves removing the serpentine belt from the engine. After the belt is removed, the video shows you how to remove the splash shield in the wheel next to the engine, using the proper tool. Next you'll be removing the crank pulley using a pulley remover, allowing you to get access to remove the seal. Richpin shows you how to remove the old seal using a special tool or screwdriver, and install the new seal in it's place. The remaining replacement steps are the reversal of removal.
