The leak is definitely coming from the rear center of the engine. I've been thinking that it is coming from the rear main seal. I want to confirm this. I'm hoping that it could be coming from some source, that is easier and less expensive to fix. What do you think?
My Legend has a clutch and 6 speed manual transmission. With a rear seal leak, would the clutch get saturated with oil and begin to slip? The clutch is performing fine at the moment. Approximately, what is the shop cost of replacing the rear main seal?
Finally, is there are oil additive that you would recommend to slow the oil leak?
I degreased the bottom of the engine, and did additional diagnostic work. I found that the lead is coming from the rear-left corner of the oil pan, not the rear seal. What are my options now? I cant seem to get a socket on the rear oil pan bolts to tighten them up.
