In the long history of leak additives, Pentosin AT205 is the only one in my personal experience that actually worked. It fixed a power steering leak in my buddy's Volvo. It stayed fixed. Even then it has its limitations.

I have Honda with leaking rear main seal. PCV replacement didn't change things. Moving on to Maxlife oil. Is the any difference in the leak reducing effectiveness between Maxlife blend vs synthetic. If Maxlife oil doesn't work, I will try the ATP AT-205 Re-Seal additive.

I'm not sure if there's any difference in effectiveness between the MaxLife Blend & Full synthetic. I have seen both significantly slow or stop leaks though. You should try 2 oil changes (at least 3K miles each) of the MaxLife Blend & see what happens.
