Your only option is to pull the tranny and replace the seal - also check the condition of the end of the crankshaft where the seal rides for excessive gouging or the new seal my not seal without first repairing or replacing the crank, this is rare however and a new seal should do the trick.
I recomend shopping around as the seal only costs about $25 and the major cost is removing the engine or transmission to replace it (wich ever is easier sometimes the motor is, but anyway maybe you can find a local friend or family member who could R&R the transmission or motor for you at a good price id say around 500-800 would be more than fair.
Look around you would be suprised when a shop is slow what kind of deals they will give out just to get some work.
It's not bad job, just time consuming. Need a way to hold tranny up while pulling parts. Have a chilton or haynes manual.
Basically though, you need to remove transmission or be able to move it back far enough... remove flywheel from crankshaft end... unbolt and remove rear main seal retainer... replace seal and gasket... reverse procedure.

could be a hold button to hold that gear or a overdrive button or traction control. i would drive it up to 55 mph and click the button in if the car revs up or shifts its a overdrive button or traction control. I would leave it unclicked.
