Usually not to expensive and yes it is difficult if you just bought the car and never worked on it , i always go to a mechanics the first time. just check the fluid often dont run it low, until you get it fixed. its just a matter of removing the bolts that hold the plate on and then changing/flushing the trans fluid, filter. if you never done it i wouldnt attempt it alone .

Oil leak seem to come from starter. What can it be - main bearing oil seal?


Oil leaking around a starter is usually one of three possible things.
If it is motor oil, then suspect the rear main seal.
It it is auto trans fluid, it could be from the transmission front seal or the torque converter
If you have a manual transmission, it could be clutch fluid leaking from the slave cylinder, or a leaky front seal from the transmission.

Camry csi 2000 oil leak between engine and transmission


Lots of Camrys do this.

The oil will typically leak from the rear main bearing seal between engine and transmission, but that will appear at the bottom of the joint line, and will not reach the exhaust. This leak is expensive to fix and is usually left as is.

A leak from the cam cover gasket can drip into the exhaust.

The other typical leak is from the distributor shaft o-ring seal. This appears at the top of the join line between engine and trans, and can blow back onto the exhaust.

manual transmission hold grease rather than fluids. fluids that run around that area would be fuel, and break fluid to the rear.

Oil leak between oil pan and transmission.


Try running some of that high-mileage engine oil next time you do an oil change (it helps to swell engine seals slightly). If the problem clears up or is reduced, then it's likely that the rear main oil seal is starting to leak a little. The rubber seals will harden up and shrink a little with age.
I would also powerwash the entire area clean, so that way any leak will be easier to monitor and pinpoint.

1988 honda acura legend keeps leaking oil dont know where from


You need to have someone you trust to look under your car for leaks. For that amount of oil loss the leak should show a trail of oil.

There is a rear main seal and it is where the transmission and engine join. Often the oil pan is in the vicinity of this part. Perhaps the repair was misdiagnosed and you actually had a bad rear seal leak instead. Depending on how this style seal is removed, it may require separating the engine from the transmission. Or the repair did not last and you should go back to have it corrected.

If there is no leak under your car, then the oil is going somewhere. The valve seals are the next most probable place.

I hope my solution is helpful, please rate my info.

First I'd find a different shop. $100 to look at it? I don't think so. Sounds like this may be a transmission issue.
