Last Friday, I noticed there was a good sized puddle of oil under my vehicle. I put enough oil back in to make it to a mechanic, and his diagnosis was that the PCV port going through my I6 block is clogged, and the added engine pressure is pushing oil out the main seal where the transmission mates to the block. Should I try using the Sea Foam stuff to free any blockages BEFORE I take this thing to a better mechanic that actually knows what to do with it?

Your "mechanic " should go back to flipping burgers
You cannot push oil out through the rear main unless it leaks all the time anyway! What a dummass!

Search for my post on how to fix your problem ... I'm tired of reposting it every week.

You can fix it yourself. You CAN!

Did you notice that the OP was FROM 2009? And as hard as it is to see the back of the engine, his leak could have been from the BACK OF THE VALVE COVER and was just assumed as to be a rear main. But it doesn't matter now, since the OP IS OVER 10 YEARS OLD!

PLUS, THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO REASON FOR YOUR UNACCEPTABLE NAME CALLING ON THIS SITE! This site is to be a safe place for owners to learn about issues and fixes for those issues! After all, we ALL, including YOU were ignorant as to the workings of automobiles at one time in our lives!

I so thoroughly dislike people dispensing mechanical repairs using old wives tales, mystical assumptions, Magic 8 Ball diagnoses and delusional visions that come in the night.

It makes it impossible to be a real mechanic when so many ex-hamburger flippers working in shops of questionable integrity, ethics and experience are telling people downright lies.

Worse yet are those who defend such hooligans and thieves under the guise of being kind. Kindness is not what is needed when bad information is coupled with gang mentality.

There's enough honest work out there to keep people of integrity busy for the foreseeable future and beyond. Mechanical arts should never be staffed by quack mechanical artists!

If you are referring to me, I call you on your BS. I have been doing mechanical work on all kinds of equipment for the past 38 years. If it has wheels, engines, electricity, coolant, or refrigerant and isn't ships, airplanes, or trains, I've worked on it or something like it. Worked nearly 10 years on school buses (pre-fuel injection), small engines, a certified electrician, certified Commercial HVACR contractor, Peterbilt/KW/International A/C specialist, as well as factory trained in over-the-road diesel powered refrigerated transport trailers. In my nearly 4 decade work career, there hasn't been much that MY COMPANY hasn't worked on! The only thing that I choose not to work on is transmissions, and that is because I have a great transmission guy that specializes in transmissions and nothing else! Furthermore, I've owned my own business continuously for the past 29 years.

Now, if you are referring to the "backyard mechanic" of the OP from over TEN years ago, we don't know the whole story, and even if the OP was totally correct in his terminology, because there are many people who have vehicles who are so ignorant that they don't even know enough to be even be able to find the hood release lever!
