Q:

Rear main seal leaking on 2000 Toyota Echo

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.

Ah, nuts! I figured I'd have to pony up. If someone out there can come up with a "catch-the-oil-drip- cup" in the future, I think s/he would make millions. Thanks again, Patrick.
