Have around 85,000 miles on my 99 Cherokee with the 4.0L straight six.Bought this vehicle new and it has always had 10W-30 Mobil in it.Started to get a little drip on the inspection cover about a year ago...the dreaded 100,000k rear main leak on the Jeep six.Put in the Delvac 1 5W-40 last oil change..about 2,000 miles on it thus far...the cover is DRY since I put in the Delvac 1...also my piston slap noise was cut in far I love this oil...any ideas what might have cause my seal to close up?Is this a first...leak was STOPPED by synthetic [Big Grin]

Well I used Mobil 15W-50 last summer and the drip was still guess is the higher ester content in the Delvac swelled the bugger [I dont know]
