My 2008 Chevy Silverado truck needs a new rear main seal. (I know it is located between the engine and the transmission.) What time and cost are involved in this repair?

Hey Danielle,
Thanks for getting in touch with us! The rear main seal replacement involves removing the transmission and transfer case to access the seal and retainer gasket. So the engine size, transmission type and whether it is four wheel drive or not can change the price. Generally it takes up to two days and the labor cost is around $800 and the gaskets are about $70. Without knowing more about the truck that is as accurate as we can be. Feel free to call the shop if you have questions!
