Where is the trans pump seal? Silly question, but I'm trying to look it up in my GM catalog at work. And I only see one rear main seal. There'* a front and rear crank seal.
Are these seals easy to replace when the motor is out?

The trans front pump seal is behind the converter.. Once you remove the converter you'll see the seal

Chris...while you're at it, you might as well change the front crank seal, too.

It just makes sense. The engine will already be out. That one can be done in the car, but it MUST be easier with it on the lift!

Same could be said for the oil pan gasket.

I'm not trying to spend all your money....just suggesting what I would do.

I got my car back yesterday, with the new/used motor installed. They assured me that my car was running just fine and to let them know if there were any problems.
Well, they are getting a phone call from me this morning.....
After I picked my car up, I was headed up to visit a friend...about a 45 minute ride. On the PA turnpike, I went to pass a truck. I stepped on the gas and had no power...then the car just died. I drifted onto the shoulder and tried to crank it up. She tried, was cranking but no start. I tried a few more times, and she started....but knocked, shook, sputtered and died again. For the short time it was started there was again, no oil pressure. Just out of curiosity, I got out and checked the oil. What came out of the dipstick tube was this black gunk with tiny bits of metal in it. Real nice - they must have left the oil that was sitting in that motor, which was sitting in a car in the junk yard for months. I'm just a tad beyond pissed. I had my car towed to my friends house....that I was intending to visit. I wanted to have it towed directly to the place that "fixed" it, but I didn't have that much cash on me.
When I call them this morning, they better tell me that they will arrange for a truck to pick it up.
Unbelieveable

Youch! Did you say this was guys at a dealership you work at doing the work? Or did I recollect wrong from days ago? They should know better...

I've got an extra can of WHUPA$$ I can send you if you need it.

Keep us updated on the progress (positive thinking).
