Rear main seal oil leak on 7.3 at used car dealer? Any Ford techs?
I'm looking at a 7.3 4x4 CC, PSD with 226k. It's at a smaller dealer lot and they just told me that it's leaking from the rear main seal. A mechanic friend of mine says he's never seen a rear main leak on one of these, that also seems to be what others think here.
My question is how likely is it to be hpop or turbo ped. leak (my reading says very)? If it is indeed a rear main leak, would that deter you from buying the truck? Would a leaking rear main indicate excessive engine wear?
