    there is no seal between the engine and transmission. they
    probably told you it was the engine rear main seal that is leaking. you might want to confirm that; since it's about
    8 hours labor to replace it.

    Thank you for your response. You appear to be honest, and have lots of knowledge concerning car repairs. I was told that my transmission would have to be dropped, is that so?

    To follow up for overbys -- yes, the transmission is pulled back to access the rear main crankshaft oil seal.
