My 87 Suburban leaks badly from the crankshaft seal when running. When it is parked and the oil is in the pan its okay. I really dont want to spend a lot (Paid $1500 for her, and she is fine otherwise.)
I was wondering if there is anything out there on the market that is able to stop a really good leak. It leaks about a quart every 100 miles around town.

Also- yesterday it started like it always does, but after running a short errand, it wouldnt crank in the parking lot. I waited 15 minutes checking fuses in the bitter cold, then it started normally. Later the process repeated at home.

Any thoughts?? The battery is good.

going to try "Mr.Sticky's Vibra bond"

I have done some research and I am going to try this...I saw them on TV (the History channel snow Modern Marvels.) They were working with a similar product made by the same company- an underwater adhesive that SETS underwater. The Vibra Bond product that I purchased is slightly different in that it can bond better in metal to metal applications. Its like a flexible WELD that I can try for $12. From the website:
Mr. Sticky’s Vibra-Bond is a flexible, toughened, non-corrosive, structural adhesive specially designed for various
applications and substrates, including bonding of plastics, metals, rubber, ceramics and cement. It has been
formulated for superior exterior performance, gap filling, impact and fatigue resistance. It’s toughness, imparted by
flexibility, causes the energy required to break a bond to be significantly higher than brittle epoxies. Excellent bond
resistance to vibration, shrinkage/expansion, bending and shock.
