Hi all,

 

I am curious to see if anyone has any shop recommendations in MA, or even Northern RI. I have a slight oil leak when I park the car, about a tea spoon drips out between the block and transmission. Did it since I had the engine rebuilt and I do not want to fix it myself, unless it could be an easy fix... Any thoughts? Rear Main seal, or something else?

 

Thank you,

Joe

While it could be a main seal leak, I'd be looking for some other locations (front cover, or the pan itself) first. When your car is being driven the leaking oil could be migrating back towards the back of the engine and tranny.

 

Clean everything, then drive the car a few miles and check starting at the front.
