I have developed an oil leak and it appears to be coming from the timing
belt cover. I had a local shop look at it and they claim it is a seal that
is behind the timing belt housing. What could be leaking from there? Since I
have ~75,000 miles on the car, I was thinking of replacing the belt also.
Shop wants ~$350.00 to do the job, around six hours. Does this sound
Thanks for any advice you can give me. Dan
You are right, I was interrupted and sent this without proof reading. I read
this now and see that I do not even know what I am asking. So, I will try

Oil appears to be leaking from under the timing belt cover. As another
responder stated, it could be the crankshaft gear, or, something else. Since
I have moved to another state, I no longer have a mechanic I can trust right
now, so I am looking for advice. A local shop stated they would fix the leak
and change out the timing belt for ~$350.00. The mechanic stated that this
was a common problem with my vintage car. Is this true? Could there be
something else leaking from that area that could be more costly to repair?
