Default Rear main seal

Hey guys... I think I have a problem.... Hope not....
Every ride I take I have to add oil...
Nothing around the pan... Its not burning it...
I can't really see the issue...
Bildge always has oil...
Ive checked everything...

How big of a job is it? Do I have to get the engine pulled?

If you have a remote oil filter first verify that is not the source of the leak. On mine the hoses started leaking at the crimps.

Yes the engine must be pulled to replace the rear main seal. Easy job once the engine is out. Place oil absorbent pads around the bilge to see where the drips are to get an idea of where the leak is.

That's 4x what you just put in your other post. This is 1/5 of the capacity, fix it now or risk engine damage.

Rereading if you are saying a quarter of a liter then keep an eye on it and extra on board just in case.
