Its a rather labor extensive job. Book time for both a auto or manual transmission exceed 12 hours. So how bad is that seal leaking and how many miles on that engine? Likley its high mileage and I would advise my customers that its no way anyone can offer an abosulute gurantee that it will not leak even after the seal is replaced. Also if Im going to that much work its really no need to try and save a few bucks on a aftermarket part. Your major cost is labor on this one. Also better make sure its truly the source of the leak. Oil leaks are easily misdiagnosed.
