Great, thanks, more stuff for me to worry about my car. Kind of a rinky-dink seal from the looks of it in the video. I think I’ll go inspect and clean my breather system now.
My question is- is it ok to let the RMS seep for 40k miles upon discovery? It was addressed as a seep at 81k miles again at 91k when I asked for warrenty repair and was denied. Now at 120k miles it’s blown and $2400.
Would you be able to provide me a list Of what tools are needed to perform the job.
