2003 Mustang GT, Crank seal leaking
On my '03 GT i noticed my front crank seal leaking after a 6 rib belt shredded and wrapped around the water pump and crank pulley. Since i have a 8 rib belt system with no shredding of the belt.
I didn't really notice how much oil was leaking til i had it on the dyno. With it sitting in one spot there was quite a bit of oil coming out after pulls only on decel. I replaced the seal, pulled the driverside vent off the valve cover and ran to an oil catch can and plugged the nipple in the air intake. It is still leaking abit but don't know if it is because of excess pressure in the crankcase. Especially when it only leaks after you left off the throttle.
I have a KB 2.6 at 18psi. I usually run Mobil 1 5w20 syn. After the engine rebuild i ran Shell rotella T for the break in period then switched to Castrol 5w20 syn.
Is it the seal still, the oil, or the excessive pressure in the crank case from running 18psi?
Should i vent the PCV valve to the catch can also? It has a wire going to it. Will it give me a code if i remove the guts? The ball still rattles inside it.
Has anyone else had this problem?
