Im planning on running an Auto RX treatment on my new 94, I pulled the PCV Valve and it looked like it was gummed up, I could barely hear it chinging inside. I replaced it with a new AC Delco. The filler cap looked nasty. I read the claims about the seals, I think my rear main seal is shot, I lost 1/2 a quart in less then 50 miles, 10W30 Dino Havoline. Its dripping on the passenger cat, thats how bad it is the under carriage is covered in oil.

Im about to change the PCV valve out on my 95. The rear main was replaced while the tranny is out, but it has a very small oil leak from the rear of the motor. One trick is spraying PB plaster on it before pulling it out, then to get the hose of the PCV valve itself, bend the hose at a 90 degree angle instead of trying to pull it straight off.

It's a nice change to have a Florida car, no rust at all!

Very, very good review--I had been looking into that product, and will likely get some for use for my own before long.

As for your leak, did it not specifically say in at least the Autotrader ad for your latest '94 that the rear main seal was bad? I swore I read that...so it's sort of a given.

The heater core hoses arent hooked up, it leaks oil like a bitch, 1 brake light, no signals/hazards, no cruise, minor accident damage under hood. But like I said, $2,000.00 grand I cant complain, the car is a jewel, and its a Florida car! Im thining about putting Delvac 15W40 in it, its cheap and should slow the leak.

The car has more pro's then cons, im happy with it either way.
