On rear wheel drive engines, the oil pan at the bottom of the engine does not completely connect to the block. It has to make room for the crankshaft at the front and the drive shaft/crankshaft at the rear. this is a half circle design in the oil pan to match the same design at the bottom of the block. In order to keep your oil in the system, there is a gasket that is either heavy cork or rubber that conforms to the shapes of the pan and block while at the same time it is wrapped around the crankshaft. When either the front or rear "main seal" "blows", it is simply worn too thin to prevent the oil from leaking out. The same theory applie to front wheel drive engines.
It would be more cost effective to replace the blown engine with a re-manufactured one.
No, Seal-Krete Epoxy-Seal is an acrylic-epoxy blend. By mixing 2 unlike resins (patio paint and Epoxy-Seal) the hard Epoxy-Seal acrylic-epoxy resins would become weak resulting in a coating failure.

You can replace the rear main seal in a transfer case, on a 1997 Ford Explorer, by removing the transfer case cover. Remove the seal, using a seal puller. Reverse the process to install the new seal.
Labor at a dealership will run about $1000, plus parts but the seal isn't that expensive.
Blue smoke out the tailpipe--lots of it. If its a blown ring seal, then the oil is being "blown" into the air cleaner, burned up and out the exhaust. Also, the engine oil level will be next to nothing.
Most likely it has a blown seal.
You have a broken hose or a blown seal in the steering system.
Rotaries don't have cylinders, heads, or head gaskets! It sounds like you have blown a water seal, which is the equivalent to a blown head gasket usually attributed to overheating. Unfotunately, a blown h20 seal requires a rebuild to fix!
If you have a blown head gasket. you pour it in the radiator and it's suppose to fix your blown head gasket. I've never used it so i don't know if it actually works
A blown head gasket means the seal around the cylinder heads is leaking. It will leak oil and over heat until the engine seizes unless it is repaired.
You have a faulty cap, seal, gasket, or a blown cylinder head.
A blown out rear axle seal will cause grease to leak out into the brake drums
As an emergency repair yes. The only permanent repair is to replace the gasket.
Blown h20 seal in engine or turbo !!
try using steel seal. you put it in your coolant and it seal the leak if theres exhaust gases in your radiator fluid or if your getting radiator fluid into your piston area. check out steel seal and i swear it will work for you its great!
Not very long as it is only an emergency repair. The only fix for a blown head gasket is to replace it.
