Hey guys i have a 2005 impala that i recently bought and i just found out that it has a rear main engine oil leak (small leak) and that is very expensive to fix and the previous owner has told me that he tried fixing the leak with a sealer but it did not work. I would like to know if anybody has a alternative solution and do you think that i should try oil additives or a sealer again if so any good sealers out-there?
If it's your LIM, I'm with pdb in that you need to get that taken care of ASAP.
If it's actually your rear main seal, there's really no way to get to that [that I know of] without removing the engine. However, in my last vehicle, I had a rear main leak and after switching to Valvoline Max Life, it did seem to help the leak out quite a bit. Did not cure it, but it did help to the point to where I did not have to add oil between oil changes...[/u]
