Fixed my oil drip

Ive had a bad oil drip from the oil pan, coming from the crankshaft position sensor wire. Some said it was the rear main oil seal. There was this fluid additive at only one parts store in town. I only added half the bottle to the oil change, and it actually worked.

never used that but they make radiator tabs that are fantastic!
They last and dont plug what they aint supposed to.
BTW, your gas mileage seems mighty low for a firefly.

it's just that I entered all my data in kilometres not miles. Their needs to have the option for both miles and kilometers on the fuel log.

upadate: the problem was not the rear main seal. it was the oil pan seal. i applied a new seal with the paste and now it is problem free.
