I'm sorry to say no. If the seals are leaking, there is no other way to stop them from leaking unless you replace them. Unfortunately, this is a big job and requires a lot of disassembly, not to mention labor costs. If your thinking about adding the seal fix additives sold in the auto stores, forget it. They do more harm than good.

If the car is a quart and a half low does Subaru have a shut-off feature to keep from hurting the engine.


No. The bigger issue is why is the oil level going down, assuming you do check the level, say, once a week. Oil leaks can be from
* the head gaskets on older 2.0 models.
* rust holes in the sump pan. Patch the holes with JBWeld or better, replace the sump pan.
* rear crank seal.

High oil consumption also occurs on older engines, say 180,000km or more, via worn valve seals. You'll usually see blue smoke blowing from the exhaust. The fix is recondition the heads, a major job.

If it's leaking from inside the engine then it would be coming from the valve cover. The cover gasket seal is no longer sealing properly. If oil is leaking down under the car then check around the oil pan, could be gasket or rear main oil seal or front oil seal.

I have a huge oil leak in my 98 Toyota Camry It leaks roughly 1 qt of oil for each hour of driving. What would be the cost of repair?


Need to find out where leak is from. Kinda sounds like a crankshaft main seal, front or rear of engine. Front one is pretty easy to change, but rear main seal leak means you have to drop transmission to get to it. But it could be another seal or gasket. Can you tell about where leak is, from oil spills on ground where parked? Look at engine. Is oil seeming to leak from bottom end or upper engine. May need to wipe or clean it off to see where fresh oil leak develops. A mechanic may need to put it on a car lift to pinpoint the leak. Good luck.

If the seal is leaking, it will need to be replaced, if you have a service manual, it will show you the procedure to replace the seal. DO NOT try to replace the seal without following the proper guidelines as input bearing damage can occur. After the repairs are made, be sure to to clean the vent tube/valve on the diff. to avoid pressure build up that will cause early seal failure, this vent should also be cleaned at every oil change.

Using half of a quart of oil every 20 miles.


There's clearly a major leak somewhere. A common problem is the oil pressure sender.

Clean all the oil off the underside of the engine, and get underneath to see where the oil is coming from. Could be the front pulley seal, rear main bearing seal.

If this is a 4 cylinder, could be the gasket behind the oil pump assembly.

Hi i have a 1994 dodge caravan it is leaking oil can this be fix im worry that we would have to save money for a van for my kids thanks


The Chrysler minivan products all had leaking problems. I have had 5 or 6 different Dodge or Plymouth minivans from 88 to 99. How bad is it. The most common thing is Valve cover leaks. Front and rear seals in the engine leak as well as the oil pan gasket. If its leaking a little bit at a time open the hood and look at the front and rear of the engine. Do you see grease and oil that has gone down the sides of the engine? Do you see a lot of grease on the engine with some clean streaks going through it. You may be able to see where its leaking from. If you know someone that knows what their doing have them change the leaky gasket/s. If not you can probably have it repaired for less than buying another van unless other things are seriously wrong with the van.
Hope this helps... Dale

Rear Main Seal Leaking


Hello, it's not "easy" but, it's doable.
You'll need to follow the instructions and don't take shortcuts. ask for help if you need it.
Use this link to get an idea of what is involved. Ignore the "remove transmission" part. It can be done without removing the tranny. If you decide to do this buy a service manual to help you. If you have any questions feel free to ask.

1997 Jeep Cherokee Leaking Oil whilst driving


This could be the rear main seal on the crank shaft that is leaking, clean around all the areas completely to isolate the leak.  There are some oil additives available at your parts store that work to cause swelling of the seal to re-seal it.  This may or may not work, but it may slow the leak.
