Cool cam shaft seal

how hard is it to change it with the motor still in the car. i can see oil leaking between the tranny and the engine block its not the oil pan.

That's the most common source for an oil leak between the block and trans. But check to make sure you're not getting a valve cover leak, the oil can run down and seem like it's coming from a seal when it's not.

You have to pull the trans.
