replace the pcv valve. If it is not working it will allow pressure to build up in the crankcase. this will cause leaks everywhere.

Gasket = $35 (permatex rubber)
Labor - my manual says 3 hours.
You'll have to be responsible for figuring out the labor price per hour depending on where you are located.
In MI, a garage is about $50/hr, and dealership = $85/hr
CA might be $95/$150/hr.
Parts are minimal on the job - its all labor.
Figure in about $20 for shop supplies... gasket remover, sealant, rags, etc.

Yes, you can remove the pan without removing the engine. You may have to remove anything preventing you from getting the pan out or you may have to disconnect the engine mounts and raise the engine enough to get the pan out.

There are alot of places where oil leaks out. The most common places on this engine are the front and rear crankshaft seals valve cover gaskets and yes, the oil pan.
