Youll probably not be be able to do the repairs yourself. It involves removing the oil pan id ask around to find a reputable shop

The rear main seal is not hard to change and removal of the oil pan on these engines is not necessary. However it is hard to access. You must remove the transmission for this repair.
To determine if the rear seal is leaking, you can remove the peep hole plug on the bell housing (there are three of them) and to see where the leak is coming from.
