Ok I've got a little leak around my rear-main seal, nothing major, but it deserves a little attention. My old man suggested putting brake fluid in the oil. He says it causes rubber seals to expand, which sounds reasonable. This doesn't sound good for the rest of the engine though. Has anyone else ever heard of this old fix?

yup, it works... too good tho and will expand every seal/ gasket that is exposed to oil and then they will start to leak. not a good idea. old trick that gets u by sometimes, just like an egg in a leaky radiator. not a good idea, but it sometimes works.
