Engine Performance problem
1998 Dodge Dakota 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 150435 miles
My 98 Dakota has a rear main seal leak as well as one at the front seal, the mechanic I take the truck to says that the rear main will not be hard to change if it is a two piece seal. Can you tell me whether or not the seal on this particular year and model would be a two piece? Also I was told that since I run synthetic motor oil in the truck that it is not helping with the leak since the additives in the synthetic look for the smallest hole to push its way out. I was told that switching over to a regular non synthetic motor oil may help eliminate the problem temporarily since it is not a major leak. Can you confirm this. Thanks.
