When getting my oil changed today I was told that I may have a front main seal leak. At the last two oil changes the oil level was low. The car has been maintained and never needed repair. If it is the front main seal, what will the cost be?

It would help us to find out specifically where the oil is leaking from. You're at the mileage when the crankshaft seal needs replacing. However. The oil may be leaking from the timing cover gasket or the oil pan gasket etc. The crank seal isn't a great big job. To quote you on the repair wouldn't be fair to you as most garages have different labor rates.
