That's a good one....... there IS a lot of snake oil out there but some of it does what it claims to do. If the claims are too spectacular to believe then don't but chemically swelling rubber and neoprene seals isn't rocket science or even "mechanics". Ever used a cap full of brake fluid in an old automatic that has been sitting for a long time and is leaking past the internal seals? Just a cap full is enough to soften and expand them and squeeze a little more life out of one. A transmission shop told me that little trick, it works. I did it in my '76 Monte, the car had sat in storage for a long time before I got it and the tranny was acting weird. I wanted them to check it out, rather than take my money they told me to try that first. I did it 4 months ago and after a couple days it straightened right out and has worked fine ever since. It should hold me long enough to get a 200-4R built and swapped in before next summer. So I guess you could say I let that "mechanic" out of the can.

Hippie Can't speak for the "Stop Leak" but Restore will definitely slow it down. I used to poke fun at the stuff until a friend convinced me to try it. It does help.

WakBordr7387 I dont know if it will hurt your engine or not, but I doubt it will completly fix your leak. It may slow down the leaking and may not leak as much for a while, but it will still leak until you fix it for real.

Does The "Stop Leak" Stuff Stop the Rear Main From Leaking?

Hi Guys,

My rear main on my 327 camaro is leaking a couple of drips at a time after I stop and I was just wondering if the "Stop Leak" stuff works and will it hurt my engine. I appreciate your help.

Dave
