1999 Honda Accord Q&A

1999 Honda Accord Question: What is the time and labor to replace the front seals?

Mechanic says I need front seals. My question is how could he tell. I had him give the car a once over, and this is what he came up with. He also said I need a new valve cover gasket. How can he tell the leaking oil on the engine surface, is from the front seal and not the valve cover? -
Answer 1
The valve cover is higher up on the engine than the seals and a mechanic can follow the trail of oil and determine where the leak originates from. -
