Depends on which seal and which model vehicle, but it involves replacing the bad seal. Rear main seals usually aren't that difficult - though again, depending on the model, it may involve dropping the transmission. Front seals or crankshaft seals involve pulling the harmonic balancer (if you have one), pulling the timing cover (if you have one) pulling the old seal from around the crankshaft and tapping the new one into place.

That would depend on what oil seal you are referring to. There are many oil seals.

There is only one way. Find the leak and repair whatever is causing the leak. Bad gasket, seal, or broken part, whatever.
