My 2004, manual transmission, AWD, Element EX just blew the head gasket (coolant intrusion into piston cylinders). I was able to find a replacement engine for $150, so I’m having my mechanic swap my engine for one that came out of an automatic. Are the rear main seals different between the 2? I watched the videos of your engine swap with same engines involved, but didn’t see any mention of the rear main seal, just pilot dowel bushings & flywheel bolt lengths. Researching online, I’ve found references to an “Automatic transmission only” rear main seal for my same year Element. What part number should I get for my manual Element’s rear main seal? Thank you in advance!
