Was thinking to purchase a used Land Rover but it needs an oil seal. The price is good depending on how much it cost for the oil seal service.

    Are you talking about the front crankshaft oil seal? If so, about $120 parts and labor.

    The seller referenced it as the "main" oil seal. So I'm thinking it is more major?

    If the price is right and you are very serious about purchasing this particular vehicle, I would recommend (with any purchase) that you take it in to a qualified shop for a pre-purchase inspection to get a complete run-down of what it needs or will need. That way you wont get stuck with thousand of unexpected after purchase repairs. It will also give you negotiating power.
    The rear crank shaft seal, commonly called the rear main seal, would cost about $930 to repair here.
