Oil Leak - Dura Seal Oil Stop Leak

We have a 1995 7.3 diesel with 189,000 miles. Thought we had an oil leak so I looked on the forum and noticed one person recommend Dura Seal Oil Stop Leak. After running down the leak we found that it was just a loose fuel filter but we were still interested in knowing more about this product. Looking for feedback would you use it or not?? Thanks

Since Powerstroke injectors are operated using high pressure engine oil, using a product like that could run the risk of seriously damaging the injectors. Plus, I would not count on a product like that actually working.

I went to their website

And looked. It contains chemicals that cause the seals to swell, like the front and rear main seals. I have had customers ask about using a product like this and my answer is:

It's your choice, A rear main seal is cheap, the labor is what will get you. Bad thing about this kind of product is once the chemicals evaporate, ALL the seals shrink and dry out. then you have to replace all the seals instead of just the original leaker.


Would I use this or any other product like this: NOPE

I used Dura Seal oil stop leak on my DuraMax when I was leaking from my main and I mean I was pouring oil!!! I used two bottles and the leak stopped in about 3 days... It's been almost 6 months and it's still good to go... I'd reccomend it to everyone. Good Stuff!

The PSD engine uses injectors that require oil pressure and flow to operate. I think it changed with the 6.4, the Duramax (Isuzu) doesn't use that type of injector, so using a product like described isn't going to have any affect on your fuel system.
