Leaking....

I can replace the valve cover gasket myself, but if its leaking from the rear main seal, CCV or something else, what would be an estimate on my pocket for a repair like that?

You drive your car into a shop and get an estimate for a speciefic repair.
Dont ask these types of questions here. Its a guessing game on this forum

Most places you can call, with a telephone, or email, with a computer, to find this out.

Re: Leaking....

Somebody help the guy out. That's what the forum is for.
What's going to happen is that he's going to call for a quote and then have to come back here again anyways and ask if its a reasonable price.

...and we have no idea what a reasonable price is in his area, so he's going to have to get multiple quotes and do the legwork himself.

(sorry OP)

well its not cheap. Let's start with that. Tighten up your belt and browse for parts. Total it all up. If you feel you can't do the job then however much you paid for the parts just double it and that will give you a ball park of cost with labor
