So after getting sick of oil leaking from my car(el fairmont) it was time to fix it.

First seal on the list was the Front Crankshaft seal. Replaced that once still leaked. Got another seal and a new harmonic balancer. Installed the new seal and balancer. Took it for a spin, still leaks oil from the crankshaft seal.

So had the mechanic over had a quick look. Try a genuine seal. Yet to do that.
Rang my grandfather who has been a mechanic from xxx years blah blah blah he said you might have a pressure lock in the engine. Gave me a quick run down on how to check it.

Now theres a hose on the rocker cover right hand side at the back. How much air should be coming out of there? I cant seem to be able to feel anything even very little air coming out of there.

Any inputs very well come.
