Other than paying someone to take apart the engine to get to the transmission, any other (cheaper) suggestions? I noticed that the oil seems to drip from the same spot at the bottom of the engine. Wouldn't it be great if someone could invent a cheap device that could be hooked on (like a little metal basket) to that certain part of the engine and then it could collect the oil? I guess it might sound stupid to a lot of mechanics, but I don't know anything about cars. My leak isn't bad, but I don't want it contaminating the environment.
Rear main seal leaking on 2000 Toyota Echo
Unfortunately no way round it but to remove the trans to access the rear main seal.
