    was looking under my truck about 10 days ago and seen my t-case leaking and about 4-5 days after i noticed it i took the top oil filler plug out to put some more oil in it and oil came poring out so its a slow leak
    is there some kinda treatment i can put in the case to help stop the leak?
    i plan to change the oil in it anyway

    Why not find out what's causing the leak rather than using some kind of "stop leak" to temporarily solve the problem?

    ah...i was skimming.;)

    i seriously doubt a "stop leak" additive would work. you can try, but you'd prolly be better off ponying up and getting a new seal and replacing it.

    its kinda a slow leak so i thought a stop leak additive would work

    i know the answer is most likely yes but do u have to tear appart the t-case to replace the seal?

    if its an inner seal, then yes, but you may be able to take the front drive shaft off and pull the seal from there. i hjavent looked at mine lately, but it may be an outer seal.

    get a test meter and test them. if they are good.....maybe needs a good seafoaming and new plugs. just off the top of my head anyway.
