If the oil is leaking from the timing chain cover behind the Harmonic Balancer (main large double pulley the belts run on). After removing the belts you need to remove the Harmonic Balancer using a puller, not to damage it, and then replace the seal in the cover. Inspect the back side of the Harmonic Balancer. The seal only seals to the shoulder of the Harmonic Balancer not the back face. If the shoulder's surface is not smooth replace it or it will leak again. Apply some light grease on the seal and mating surface of the Harmonic Balancer and reinstall. Re-install the belts. If it is leaking around the edges of the cover the sealant may need replacing. Also check the condition of the sealant around the oil pan. Both would require removal/cleaning and re-sealing.

I just had the intake manifold gasket replaced on my 96 century yesterday and my bill was $450 but my gasket was only leaking out. If its leaking into your oil it may be more.

Remove the housing and replace the gasket.

To replace the valve cover, you will need to break the gasket and the o-rings. The gasket prevents oil from leaking.

No, it will not. Take apart and replace the leaking part, it's not rocket science.

The gasket for a 1997 pickup was around $40.00-$50.00, if i remember right and that was at NAPA.

If a transmission is leaking fluid, it is likely that a seal or gasket has failed. Replace the gaskets and seals and the leaking should stop.

It can costs anywhere from 10 to 20 dollars to replace an oil pan gasket on a 20045 Nissan Sentra as of 2014. The exact price depends on the seller.

You need to check the transmission gasket between the transmission pan and the body. If it's leaking you have to replace it.
