Rear Main Seal is Leaking

Rear Main Seal is Leaking
<hr style="color: rgb(209, 209, 225); background-color: rgb(209, 209, 225);" size="1"> <!-- / icon and title --> <!-- message --> <!-- BEGIN TEMPLATE: ad_showthread_firstpost_start --> <!-- END TEMPLATE: ad_showthread_firstpost_start --> I had some small oil leak & I found out that my rear main seal is leaking on the V10.
Has anyone had this problem? Is it expensive to fix? from what I understand you have to drop the tranny to get to it.
Geez
I had 2 technicians, 1 of them a ford tech take a look at it and they both said it was the rear main seal.
Its leaking slowly, and when idling in park you can smell the burning oil because it drips directly on the exhaust.

the best trans shop around is royal trans and brake service in Spotswood.
732-723-1212. ask for Pat. he is the owner, and will not jerk you around.
