The front main crankshaft seal is designed to seal the crank shaft and engine block. Your vehicles crankshaft is designed to transfer the movement created by the pistons. At the back of the engine the crankshaft transmits power to the transmission and ultimately the wheels, allow your vehicle to move. At the front of the engine, the crankshaft protrudes from the engine block and is attached to a harmonic balancer. This dampens internal engine vibrations and also servers as the main pulley. The main pulley drives all over belt driven accessories, such as the alternator and power steering pump.
Overtime, it is possible for the front main crankshaft seal to break down. When this happens, your engine will begin to leak oil. This will result in additional wear on engine components. It can also result in oil accumulating of other other components under the hood, and damaging them.
