Fixed My Oil Leak
Dan found my oil leak problem. He said it was really bad. And it was coming from my rear engine seal. He said the seal itself was soft. We speculated that the bio diesel or the veggie oil made it soft and the high pressure in the engine was pushing out the seal and leaking oil. He replaced it with another type of seal that he thought would last longer.
How's that oil leak? Did you get it fixed? Any post-mortem analysis done on the failed seal? Keep fighting the good fight!
Overfilling the crankcase as you had done will almost always blow out the rear seal. The pressure has to go somewhere. The dipstick has level indicators for a very good reason.Post a Comment
