- Will Bar’s Leaks Main Seal Motor Oil Leak Repair work in all types of oil?
Yes. This premium quality synthetic blend works with all types of motor/engine oil including regular petroleum, high mileage, synthetic blends and fully synthetic formulas.
- Will Bar’s Leaks Main Seal Motor Oil Leak Repair work in my engine?
Yes. We have designed this product to work in all gasoline and diesel engines including turbocharged, EcoBoost, hybrid and even racing engines. This covers 4, 5, 6, 8 and 10 cylinder engines in all cars,
trucks, vans and SUV’s. Even can be used in heavy-duty applications referencing the appropriate dosage level. This applies to a wide range of other motor applications too: tractors, boats, RV’s, motorcycles (including wet clutch), ATV’s, lawn equipment.
- What are the dosage recommendations?
For most applications the entire bottle will be used. One bottle treats oil capacity from 5 quarts (4.7 liters) to 7 quarts (6.6 liters). Use ½ bottle for smaller oil capacity systems from 3.5 quarts (3.3 liters) to 4.9 quarts (4.6 liters). In heavy duty applications and for larger systems use 1 bottle for every 6 quarts. In small engines including ATV, motorcycle, lawn equipment, tractors, etc., use approximately 5 ounces of Main Seal to every quart of oil capacity.
- How does Bar’s Leaks Main Seal Oil Motor Oil Leak Repair work?
This product works in two ways to help solve most any motor oil leak.
1) A specially-engineered seal rejuvenating additive restores seal size, flexibility and elasticity lost due to engine heat, age and high mileage.
2) An advanced seal polymer additive package works by building a polymeric film around the seal to help prevent excess oil from bypassing the seal during normal engine operation.
- What causes the seals to leak?
The most common cause of seal leaks is age and/or high mileage. The seal can also leak due to the vehicle being stored for an extended period of time. Extended storage in particular causes drying and hardening of the seal which leads to shrinking and cracking, and consequently leaking.
- What are the symptoms of an engine oil leak?
Depending on the severity of the leak, the first thing you may notice is the oil level decreasing. If not corrected quickly, the oil pressure light may come on or oil pressure gauge may start reading low. The next thing that happens is spotting, where you will find oil spots, located on the driveway or garage. These spots are usually brown or very dark, almost black in color.
- What other factors can contribute to oil leaks?
A few things can cause an oil leak that are not the fault of the seal or gasket. If the oil level is too high (filled over the full mark) or the PCV (Positive Crankcase Ventilation) system is not functioning correctly, leaks can occur. The PCV system prevents pressure from building up inside the engine and if it fails, the pressure will cause the oil to leak. It is a good idea to clean or replace the PCV valve regularly to prevent this problem. Oil leaks can also be caused by severely worn rings or a broken piston which pressurizes the crankcase pushing out the oil. Lastly, which is mostly seen in cold areas that use salt on winter roads, is a rusted out oil pan. For this issue, a pan replacement will be required.
- Do I need to use Bar’s Leaks Main Seal Motor Oil Leak Repair with every oil change?
In most cases the oil leak issue will be repaired with a single dosage. However, for best results and to prevent the problems from reoccurring, use with every other oil change.
- Will Bar’s Leaks Main Seal Motor Oil Leak Repair clog my oil filter?
No. Bar’s Leaks Main Seal contains no particles to plug the leak. Instead, its technology relies on special polymers and seal conditioners to stop oil leaks permanently.
- My owner manual says not to use oil additives, is this product safe?
Yes, this product is completely safe to use in your vehicle. Keep in mind the main goal of the automotive manufacturers is to get your car past the warranty period. These same manufacturers also have their own private label chemicals which are sold and used at their dealerships. Older vehicles have different requirements than a new car which allows them to benefit from certain oil additives.

“More expensive than other products but worth it. Used it twice on our older cars (ones we use for carpool and travel sports LOL) and both times it worked very well. Product was recommended to me by an O'Reilly counter person.”
