ok so now i my starter fixed..then i take my car to this shop i know and ask about this oil leak cuz i was thinkin it was the rear seal..the man takes a look at it and comes back and tells me the leak is from on the inside of the engine where the tranny connects with the engine..he tells me its this metal seal and the only way to fix it is to drop the tranny..so i'm standin there like dayum!! but then he tells me not to worry about it because he said chances are if i replace it it will leak again.he said regals are known for this problem. he said to just keep oil in it and there's nothin to worry about. He said just replace that seal when i replace the motor or trans..so i went to another shop and they told me the same thing along with my friends cuz that is a mechanic...so dayum i'm stuck with drip drip :( anybody ever had this problem?

i asked the mechanics about that stuff and they said to stay away from it..they said mostly all that stuff would do is gunk up the inside of my engine..they said to use it only if i planned on sellin the car because it would cause problems later down the road.
