Hello everyone,

I noticed small oil spots on the floor of my garage and low and behold the rear main seal is leaking. The car has close to 83k miles. Is this a common issue with such less mileage? I have a 2005 Release Series. I was given quotes between $700 to $900 to fix the issue given the motor and transmission must be removed.

I did some research and came across additives that may stop the rear main seal leak. One of those additives is ATP AT-205 Reseal. There are many more products that are the same or similar such as Blue Devil and Bar’s Leaks Rear Main Sealer additives. Have any of you tried these products and has it worked? I figured I’d try and rather spend the $10 to $15 and give it a shot rather than $900.

I’m leaving towards the ATP AT-205 given the many reviews on Amazon. Some say it works while others say it doesn’t and prefer Blue Devil. At this point I’ll try anything.

Thank you!

Very odd you would have that issue with such low mileage. But mechanical issues can happen.
