Question about Cars & Trucks
Rather than go into a long winded answer to your question, may I suggest you go out and buy a Haynes auto repair manual for your 1197 Neon at your local auto parts store. In it you will find detailed instructions on doing that and a whole lot more!

SOURCE: 97 neon oil leak
Rear main seal is probably the problem.
My 1997 Dodge Neon has this same problem. My father-in-law (who used to be a mechanic) checked the car for me and found the rear main seal needs replacing.

Below is a diagram for the belts on your car. You will see to the right, an adjusting bolt. This loosens the tension to slide the belts on and off. Once the new belt is on, apply pressure to get the belt tight (a long flathead screwdriver or crowbar should do) and while tight, re-tighten the adjusting bolt.
