Thread: Off to a bad start.

  1. #1

    Off to a bad start.

    Well, the Highland holiday couldn`t have got off to a worse start.
    Now sat at my brother in laws with the van outside and an oil leak. Breakdown chap says he`s sure it`s a crank seal that`s leaking.
    If I can`t get it fixed in the next couple of days then it`ll be rescued back to Somerset.
    Peed off doesn`t even come close at the moment.

    you used to be able to but an oil additive to swell seals to stop small laeks. I tried it once and it worked for me

    We were just looking at this in google and it comes with some good recommendations.

    This is my first holiday in a long, long time so as long as that happens and I get home again I`ll be happy.
    I`ll get the problem sorted properly next month.

    Chuck some in, nothing to lose. It's not like rad weld that blocks all the ports up, this stuff just swells the seals.

    I would hire a van for the holiday and then worry about your van at your brother in laws after you have had your holiday, you can then get your recovery back home without any worries. It's more fore piece of mind whilst you are away from home.

    Great idea but I don`t have those sort of finances plus we have our three dogs with us.
