Which is the least hardest method to replace the rear main seal in the back of the engine? Pull the engine and place it on an engine stand? Or pull the transmission and drive shaft? I don't have an engine hoist, stand or transmission jack. Right now I am thinking of just buying a hoist and stand, as I don't really like the idea of wallowing around on the garage floor doing all the work. I have helped a buddy swap a transmission, and we were wallowing around on the garage floor for four days. I have never pulled an engine before. Suggestions appreciated. '02 SOHC engine.
