Take a long crowbar fit it between the bolts and crack the bolts with a breaker bar in an opposing or star pattern use a mapp gas or propane torch VERY CARFULY hit the area around the bold for 4 seconds to overcome any loctite if you cant break with a bar by hand first there is a better way but it involves a specialty tool or two

Does replacing oil seal require removing oil pan on 2004 Honda civic ex 1.7L VTEC automatic?

not normally as it is in the timing cover case or behind the bottom sprocket or drive pullet for the timing belt
if it is a rear main seal it will require the transmission removal as well as the flywheel /torque converter
you were not specific as to which oil seal required replacing.
best get a workshop manual as that book shows the procedure to replace seals

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.

Oil leak front engine timing chan

1995 Tracker would have a timing BELT. Normal oil leak points (in order) on a Suzuki G16 engine are the distributor base (rear of motor), valve cover (top of motor), front main seal (behind lower timing belt cog) cam seal (behind the upper timing belt cog) and rear main seal. (behind the flywheel). I'd suspect the front main seal or cam seal. I use foot power to help find oil leaks.

I have an 1983 ford 150 with a 351 am leaking oil from a metal cover that my starter is on what am wondering is there sapost tp be a gasket and is there sapost to be oil leaking into it thank you

If the "metal cover" is behind the engine block and if you have a manual transmission then what is inside the cover is the flywheel which attatches to the crankshaft. There should be no oil there unless the rear main oil seal around the crank is leaking. To repair this the transmission will need to be removed along with the oil pan.

My 95 Honda prelude is leaking oil bad, it's leaking from the part directly behind the oil pan. What is that part called?

It's usually the rear main oil seal that's located immediately behind the oil pan on an engine. They do eventually leak and need replacing. Have it checked out.

I need to know how to put a new oil gasket 1986 honda xl 100cc. is it as simple as taking out the bolts that hold it on and slide in a new gasket? Thanks

If it is on the right hand side of the bike then yes. Remove the clutch cable by undoing the adjustment nuts on the engine side of the cable and unhooking from the lever. Remove the nut on the gearshift pedal and pull of the pedal. Remove the dipstick. Undo all the nuts on the cover, and remove it. Locate the new gasket on the engine. There are 2 locating dowels so it should not have diffyculty staying in place. Replace the cover and clutch cable and readjust the clutch cable.
On the left hand side of the engine is a bit more tricky as the oil is not leaking past the gasket on the cover itself. There are 2 places where it can leak from. One is behind the drive sprocket. Remove the cover. Undo the nut on the sprocket. Bend back the tabs on the locking plate and remove the sprocket. Drive a self tapping screw into the shaft seal and pull it out with a pair of pliers. Drive a new on back in place. Also see this :
If the leak is from behind the alternator you will have to remove the magneto. This is diffycult as you need a puller to get the flywheel off the crank. Then the alternator assembly and only then will you be able to reach the shaft seal. This can be removed as per the previous link.
