I have a couple small leaks on my motor coming from my timing cover(just replaced the gasket and it still leaks) and a very slow leak coming from my oil pan. I was wondering if there is any oil additive i could use to fix these, people tell me Lucas Oil for stopping leaks is good, Another friend told me that Slick 50 is a good one to try, anybody else have any other suggestions or tips to fix the leaks?

Thanks for your time

yeah, thats why I wasnt too sure about it, Does it just thicken your oil?( probably not the right term) because a buddy of mine put it in his car and said it was the consistency of syrup.

......."My oil pan/timing cover gasket is leaking. Is there some way to fix the gasket that does not involve fixing the gasket?" Are you sure it was done right?

Yeah it was done right, me and my friends are thinking because its a chrome timing chain cover, but i sanded off the chrome on the mounting surface, I plan on replacing it with an aluminum cover and new seals, I was just wondering if there was a short term fix. But I am trying to get it fixed as soon as I can

I would not count on any additive to stop a leak.
there is actaually some additives that will swell seals to stop leaks, but gaskets are a little different , they have to be replaced
