Don't believe in any of those "Pour this into your engine and stop all leaks!" crap, it's all BULLSHIT and a waste of money. Listen to the guy above me.

try valvoline MAXlife, it has seal sweller.

Another thing to do is re-torque those oil pan nuts. i found 2 missing nuts on mine. i bought new ones and re-torqued all of them only to find out most of them were loose!

8.7lb is all you need
