My Salvage Ferrari 360 Rebuild Project was delivered with a Leaky Rear Main Oil Seal. To pull the transmission and do a clutch and all the replacement items would cost around $5,000 parts and labor, so instead I used some cheap stop leak that I bought at the auto parts store. Here's how well this miracle fix actually works!

Samcrac, I really enjoy your videos and the no give up mentality on this Ferrari. Thanks for keeping hooked on fixing this thing up and for showing off your other projects as well I wish I had this knowledge on vehicles.

Should have called me. I would have allowed it. If it works then great you saved some time and money. If not then who cares, ferraris are over hyped anyway.

I admire your ambition and full-out GUMPTION for owning the "legendary" Ferrari on a working man's budget presumably... but "ferrari" and "stop leak" have too great a disconnect to be in the same scenario without out-and-out disaster

Oil is cheap, relatively speaking. For the amount of money you'd spend to fix the leak, you can but a LOT of oil. Now, if the oil is gushing out, as was the case with my Jeep's rear main seal, that's a different story.

Glad you learned this was a waste of time, now fix it the correct way like all your other friends told you to haha.

Recommend by mechanic Yoda @Scottykilmer ATP 205 USE CAUTION......BE WARNED Certain models it can clog oil pump by softening paint. certain makes like Dodge will soften paint on oil pan and valve covers test by dumping some on exterior engine see if it softens or peels.. otherwise Definitely works I've used it on many models toyota Honda engine, transmission and power steering. I use only a quarter bottle to half takes a little longer. I even spray bushings, mounts, belts. Keeps soft. Split or cracked seals leaks worse...

For slowing rear main seal drip, you can try using conventional oil rather than synthetic, you just have to change it more often, secondly you can try using heavier grade oil (thicker oil) if for example from 5-30 to 10-40. I would not use any stop leak. You have great videos. The green orings are for ac systems, they resist R12 R134a.

Lord have mercy! $3,000 just for the clutch parts, which last maybe 40k miles. Wear will accelerate as it gets thinner. Is this 'quality'? Seems like a good thing 99% of Ferrari owners don't drive them. BTW, the leaking rear main seal has an output shaft, spinning at engine RPM, in the sealing surface. There is just no way 'stop-leak' can stop that leak, because it gets wiped away. If you had called me, I would have said not to put goop in your engine. Just live with it until the clutch (or trans) fails. Won't be that long. But I did watch the video, so I guess you win. Italian engines are known for very small internal oil passages, though. Best of luck to ya...

I have use atp 205 for a while like 2 years and you will be surprised how well works. Also blue devil oil stop leak or rear main seal stop leak. The blue devil is more potent. But that atp 205 works good. It either slows the leak down or stop it. If it remains the same then the seal is completely broken and no stop leak can help that.

Most likely he can just keep driving with the slow RMS leak until the clutch goes bad, then replace clutch & RMS...If the RMS blows out all at once while driving and loses/leaks all the oil, you can quickly pull over and avoid any engine damage...A person who doesn't work on cars would probably not realize until too late that something is wrong and destroy the engine..

Funny how super cars still used timing belts during this time when other used timing chains for longevity but the timing chains wear out faster than timing belts. Funny how that works.

This is without a doubt the most disingenuous video I think you've ever made. Why did you show us your washed engine (with steam and all) and then show us supposed 'after' video merely hours later and everything in the engine bay was COVERED in dust? Also, how, exactly, does oil pressure build after you shut off a vehicle? Maybe you misspoke but I still feel like you are deceiving the viewers.

OK say you married a gorgeous fashion model and she just turned 40. Let's say that 40 is 50% left. lol Would you then tell her on her 40th birthday that she has to now shop for makeup at Rite Aids because she well she is 40? NO YOU WOULD NOT! You have a Ferrari, you should do the right thing by her!

Got to ask. You have 1m subs, probably earn good Ad revenue, and yet continue to shell out on anything to permanently fix an issue, and just continue to get closer to fucking the car. Why not just shell out for once? Don’t turn into Hoovie but damn son come on

Maybe the oil was sat on an under tray. With the rear jacked up the standing oil would run forward and drip off.

For your experiment in the the tray, you should measure the thickness with a digital micrometer or caliper, to more accurately assess how much they did (or didn’t) swell. Also suggest putting it over a small heat source with a thermometer, heating it to engine temperature for a while. It could be that the stop leak is activated by heat.

No, no, no! Don't put that shit in your engine. These things never work and will cost you more money in the process! Haha! And let's face it, if your're losing your hair, you're losing your hair. No extra 'conditioner' is gonna help that!

Even though Stop leaks DO what they are prescribed to do, any mechanic will always not recommend their use... why... it takes profit out of their pocket... that is the ONLY reason. There are many situations that a bottle fix will not work, but there are countless that they work wonders. I've used countless stop leaks and conditioners and I have never had a failure when used for what they are designed for.

I have to admit, when I saw the title I assumed this was the ultimate in click bait. I wouldn't want to put that stuff in an exotic car. I also wouldn't want to pay for the repairs and clutch. Unless for some reason you want to hear a Ferrari engineer cussing you out in Italian I would avoid any international calls for a while.

Not sure you may have though of this, but if the stop leak is heated, it may affect the seals more. Your control test was good being concentrated but doesn't cater for heat

If you even consider to do something like this to a Ferrari, You'd be better off with a Corvette. Just sell the Ferrari, and buy a Corvette. I'll bet that you wont even notice the difference. Most likely you will find the Corvette even "better".

You should drive the car instead of leaving it at idle because it reduces the lubricity of the oil more quickly at about the half time of a normal change
