Initial Problem - Engine oil is leaking from engine.

Diagnosis & Recommendation - Upon initial inspection we found that the breather valve/filter was original and was never replaced. We recommended replacing that first as a clogged breather valve/filter can cause oil to leak from other areas of the engine. After replacing the breather valve/filter we test drove the vehicle and noticed that the rear main seal was still leaking and needed to be replaced. Advised customer to replace the rear main seal as the leak was considerable enough to cause engine damage quickly.

Outcome - We replaced the rear main seal and did not experience any other oil leaks.
