To stop the leak it will have to be replaced and a speedy sleave will have to be insalled on the crank surface this is not a little job and should be taken to a shop to fix. The transmisson has to be unhooked and backed away to work on it. For a shop to do it it's about 6 hours work Guessing cause don't know if it's 4 or v-6. Good luuck, If the seal fails all the way it can pour oil out fast enough to damage the engine if you let it go.

2003 dodge Intrepid 2.7l oil leak above rear main seal after running 20 minutes

rear main seal usually only leaks when the car is running. though oil will slowy drip off afterwards. now the best way to tell is to remove the heat sheild that covers the flywheel and look at it and at the flywheel . is the oil only on the engine side of the cover or is it inside the cover and on the fly wheel. the rear main seal will leak into the bellhousing and on the fly wheel the oil pan gasket will leak on the front of the heat sheild.

All you can do is locate where the leak is coming from and replace the gasket or seal that is leaking. Common places are: valve cover gaskets, front and rear intake gaskets, front and rear main seals, and timing cover gaskets.

Oil leaking is becoming more a more by the time, I was told to wait because it can be very expensive to fix it since the gearbox have to be desmounted first, is it so complicated? can be really expensive?

it depends where the leak is coming from........there are probably 10 places oil can leak from, some are not expensive to repair and others are. one common leak comes from the rear main seal and the engine and transmission have to be seperated from each other so that the seal can be replaced. that would cost a few hundred dollars or more. try to look under the car to see where the leak is coming from. sometimes you can't easily tell, but if it's from the oil pan or oil pan gasket, it's easy to see and not too expensive($50-$75 or so) to repair.............

2002 Chrysler Sebring Oil pressure light

Could be a bad oil pressure switch, or a bad oil pump. Both will cause this issue. Hope it is the switch b/c the oil pump is a costly repair.
