SOURCE: Rear Main Seal Leak
THat seems to be in the ball park. If you have an AWD, the flat rate time is 14.4 hours. If you have just a FWD, it is 9.5 hours. In either case, the transmission has to be removed from the vehicle to access this seal. Sorry.

A leaking rear main seal will not cause your transmission to leak.
The transmission has its own seal and should not leak because of the engine rear main seal.
Due to the labor involved in replacing the rear main seal on the engine, it is best if you replace the front transmission seal at the same time if possible.
Installation varies on different vehicles but the principles are the same.

You can buy a florescent dye to add to the oil and a light to make the dye really shine.
Clean the engine with "brake clean" from a spray can at the oil leak areas ....then run the engine.
Check for the start location of the leak.
Start with a short run time ....... then longer run time if necessary until the leak(s) show.
With or with out the dye ......this brake cleaning method should help locate the leak(s).
Oil leak locations could be...in order of the most common on your car are........valve cover gasket,oil filter,oil pressure sending unit,drain plug,oil pan gasket,crank pickup sensor,rear seal.

clean it off & inspect for a valve cover gasket leak, a head gasket is possible but unlikely. Use a flashlight & an adjustable inspection mirror (don't buy the cheap small one) to observe for the leak. if that fails you, then go to the local parts store & buy some Brake Cleaner, Florescent Oil Leak detector additive, and a lamp kit for UV dye diagnosis. use the Brake cleaner on all suspect/dirty surfaces, place additive in the engine oil, start engine turn on light & place glass'es on face, look for leak, ID & repair,, recheck work
