Q: Oil Leak Repair on 2004 Subaru Forester

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
I have an oil leak and the mechanic says I need to replace the front & rear main oil seals. Can you give me an estimate on what that type of repair would cost?

it is very odd both the front and rear mains leak together. the rear requires removal of the transaxle. the front is not that bad.
i would get a second opinion first.
the front pays 2.8 i would consider replacing the timing belt and water pump while doing this.
the rear pays 6.8 hours.
lot of money, thats why i think a second opinion is in order.

Thank you Roy. I had it in at the local Subaru dealer and they first said it was the oil pan cover & stripped bolts. Then they said if that wasn't it they would have to pull the engine. It didn't leak on the driveway for about 2 weeks then started again. I took it to a local shop and they told me about the front & main rear seals. They can't do the work but recommended another repair shop.
