Question about Toyota Yaris
Add one ounce of power steering fluid to the crankcase oil. This will soften hard dry seals and cause them to swell. works well for front and rear main crank seals, Valve stem seals and most gaskets. Usually takes around 100 miles of operation to take affect. [Brake fluid will also work but power steering fluid is more potent] Will renew transmission seals as well. If it ain't leaking don;t fix it!

it could also be the oil pan gasket, or the manifold gasket. if it's the manifold gasket, when you remove the manifold to replace it, take the time to clean out the mixing chamber. it'll be filled with gunk and cleaning will improve gas mileage.

This sounds like the crank seal, the engine doesnt have to be removed, in order to get to seal is like replacing the ttiming belt, and once in the timing belt i would replace the crank and cam seals, also do the timing belt, and maybe the waterpump, you will need to remove the crank pulley and then the timing covers then align timing marks for timing belt before ou remove it, with timing belt off the crank pulley then slides off the crankshaft and the seal is behind it, the cam shaft gear unbolts and the seal is behind the gear, once the gears are off then you will be able to remove the seals from the engine,heres a few diagrams to help. good luck and i hope this is helpful,
