i come to know from service store that, oil pan gasket is leaking.
and it costs 950 $.
So my question is,
how long I can drive with this problem?
how serious is this problem, if I repair it after 1 week?
Do you

Depends on how big the leak is. If it is leaking continuously like an open faucet (basically you will lose all oil within minutes), I would not drive the vehicle until I get it fixed. But if it just leaks a drop or two on the driveway, just keep checking the oil, make sure you have enough oil all the times, you can drive it for a while, just make sure you have ENOUGH oil...

That cost is a little high. Call around for a better price. You have automatic transmission. If you have 2WD, it only calls for 8.6 hours.
