Wanted to update. After a week of driving,the leak is still there. I snapped a couple of pics with the oil pooled up. Question,would a dino or synth blend be more effective for maybe "fixing" the leak,or should I go full synth hm oil?
So it's begun to leak again after your 200mile drive where it didn't leak afterward? Have you tried calling Bar's Leaks and ask them if they can recommend a product for that particular leak location? (ask to speak to one of the technical guys, they've always been helpful the times I've called upon them). I can't recall if it's on Mobil's or Valvolines website but one of them states it could take an oci or two for the SCA's to do their trick... assuming of course the seal is even still at a point where a conditioner could have an effect. Sometimes seals are too far gone for a leak seal.
Fwiw, in my experience once a seal or gasket has started to leak it's just a crap shoot whether or not a seal conditioner is gonna work. But watta ya have to lose, right? Especially since it sounds like the repair, if needed ultimately, is gonna be a PITA.
