Hi Steve, where is it leaking oil from, they are a bit prone to spreading it around a bit.

If it's the crankshaft seal then the engine will need to come out, probably easier done at one of the yards where they have a crane etc.

Hi, try to find the leak first....
Determin if its high up or low down
High up checks :-
Rocker Cover
Cam lifter covers (side of block behind alternator)
RPM drive gear (side of block below alternator)
Headgasket where head meets block, check all around.

Low Down checks:-
Timing gear cover, front of engine
Sump, check all around
Bellhousing - supect crankshaft oil seal
Dip stick tube, the can fracture.

Good Luck
