Well sometimes.... the front crankshaft seal is usually called a crank seal, or the front timing cover seal but the rear crank seal is (usually) called the Rear Main crank seal. In order to replace the rear seal , the transmission will need to be removed. If its the front, then the harmonic balancer will be removed. $380 sounds cheap. As you will need a oil seal, oil pan gasket, oil, filter, labor and tax. Maybe even a lower engine mount.

Testimonial: "Thank you sooo much!! This mechanic has been in business for 45 years and has been the president of an antique car club for many years..."
Camshaft seal must be replaced when the engine is cold. Take off valve cover and then the upper timing cover and take off the camshaft sprocket and the timing belt will come off too. Use a small screw driver to pull the old seal off and then force in the new one. Then pull back the sprocket and timing belt. If the engine is hot, the timing belt will not go back on the sprocket until the engine is totally cool down overnight. Or if you want, you can set the camshaft to TDC and take off the rocker arm assembly, take off the seal and put the new one on and reinstalled the bolts to the rocker arm assembly and then do the valve adjustment.
