    2005 2.2 oil leak after transmission swap out.

    We run a 2005 cavalier on dirt and busted a hole in the transmission (5 speed). Local shop put in a new (to us) transmission. All seals on trans were changed. Changed rear main seal while trans was off. Car had a small oil leak dripping between the block and transmission before, now leaks much more. Besides damage to the new seal what else could be leaking in the same place? I believe they damaged the seal when installing trans.

    if its enough that its dripping and you haven't separated the oil pan, my vote would be the rear main seal too.
