Engine Oil Leak From Front Crankshaft Seal on Suzuki Esteem

An engine oil leak may develop from the front crankshaft seal due to hardening of the rubber seal. There is a revised seal and sleeve available to correct this concern. Our technicians tell us that changing the oil every 3000 miles may help prolong seal life.

Been using a lot of oil forever. I just put a quart in every week . Had to get the timing belt/water pump replaced and had the mechanic replace the crankshaft seal.
