Question about Nissan Altima
I have replaced this in a 2004. Open hood and remove serpentine belt. Jack up passenger side of car, put a jack stand under car and remove wheel. Remove plastic liner that covers oil filter. I believe it's a 19 mm bolt that holds the crankshaft pulley on. You will need an impact wrench to remove. (Other methods shown online are unsafe) Remove crankshaft pulley with a puller and you will now be able to remove the crank seal. Remember to lube the inside of the new seal when installing so as not to damage it. Install reverse of removal.

don't use 20w50 that is too heavy an oil for that motor. the most i would use is like a 10w40 and that is a last resort. your valves need adjusting or the hydraulic lash adjusters may be gunked up. there is a chemical called auto-rx (search web) that could help you out. just follow the directions for it. the only other oil seals i can think of are oil pan gasket, oil filter gasket, rear main seal, valve cover gasket.

replace the front oil seal. first i would clean the engine with purple power (degrease etc.) then look at the engine and make sure the leak is not coming from above like possibly the valve cover gasket or from the oil sending unit. try to tighten the bolts on the valve cover and even the oil pan. you never know, you may get lucky. i don't know where you are but front seals are cheap but the labor on the job is what costs you.

SOURCE: rear main seal
I have done many the transmisson has to come out to replace it but your price is way out of line, should not be more than $400.00 give me a zip and I can get you a certified shop that can do it for less with a warrenty.

I am going to see a mechanic - my trusted mechanic who does not nickel and dime me - to see what this is. I have the same problem and he told me he has never done this job on a Camry and is unsure. Given the miles, he has suggested that maybe it is time to part ways with the car. I am going to ask him if he will put some florescent dye in it and let me drive it for 50-100 mi and then check to see where the leak is and fix it. Let you know what happens. I have to try, the car is solid.
