"If", and I mean if the oil leak is something simple like the valve cover gasket, you could probably get it and the timing belt changed for $250 to $350, depending on where you take it for repairs. "If", again, it, s the front, rear or both main seals it's a whole different ball game. You're looking at between $500 and $1000. In doing this you may stop or at least slow down the leaks but, you will still have a motor with almost 200K on it. You may want to consider, and the car would have to be in "really" nice shape, a low mileage used or a rebuilt "long block" motor or having yours rebuilt. There, you would have to drive the car for a long time to get your investment back. Then again, how strong is the transmission or what else would fail down the road? It's a tough call and I would sure get some prices on the above, then decide. Hope this helps.
