Real Main Seal - Oil Leak With Pictures
I have a oil leak on my 2003 mdx near the transmission & oil pan. I removed the inspection plate, sprayed everything off with brake cleaner, nice and clean. Drove down the street brought it back and snapped a photo of the exact place where it's leaking, right near the inspection plate (see photo). What's the deal with this. I googled around and most people are calling this a "rear main seal", whatever that is. One post I read said $300 and one said $1,000. Can anyone tell me exactly what this issue is and about how much I should be paying to have it fixed? Also, could it be a DIY'er project?
