    This sounds silly.
    "WHAT ABOUT OIL LEAKING FROM CRANKCASE" is this a question?
    Answer?: The engine contains oil and when seals and gaskets get old/hard the oil leaks past them.
    The crankcase is seals with gaskets and seal. The source of the leak is to be found and the gasket/seal is to be replaced.
    If unusual cases where you have a crack in the engine block or head or metallic component, that component is to be replaced.
