    New to this forum. I found it while looking for things for my Tahoe. From Texas, I am a car enthusiast I guess. I am a truck guy mostly, but enjoy any kind of nice ride. I currently have
    1997 Pontiac GTP Sedan
    2002 GMC Yukon
    2002 Z-71 Tahoe
    2014 Buick Verano (wife's car)
    2018 C.C. Ram
    I acquired the Z-71 from a friend at work a couple of months ago, had the dreaded rear main leak. Now she is leak free! Not looking forward to doing the Yukon.

    It's actually pretty easy once the tranny is out! But pulling that trans is a real PIA.

    Since what would completely drain? The rear main seal will just leak some engine oil but generally the leaks aren't that bad and you just need to check the oil every so often and top it up. It's mainly a nuisance that leaves drops of oil when you park.
