My neon has a leak that was diagnosed today as a rear main seal. I realize this is an expensive repair and am wondering two things:
- Can I limp it along until next Spring by adding oil as needed?
- Do you guys believe -at all- in those miracle stop leak additives? If so, which one?
A rear main seal leak is not likely to be helped by miracle products, but I suppose it is worth a try.
But, just for the sake of this discussion…How much oil do you have to add as a result of the leak, and how often do you add it?
At the next oil change add Valvoline Max Life oil. This is formulated to stop seal leaks.
The son switched to this oil and it stopped the rear main seal leak on his Jeep.
