I'm working on my 88 Dodge Caravan, as I write, I'm covered with grease and oil. It's a bear to do it yourself. It's a lot to have someone else do it. Since it's really old in car years, you have nothing to lose by trying it yourself (be careful, it's not worth getting hurt over)...If you can't complete the job, donate it to the kidney foundation. They'll tow it away. With the price of cars these day's the repair bill would go a long way toward the purchase of a newer vehicle...:) A crankshaft is the part of the engine that the burning fuel causes to go round and round and where all the power leaves the engine. The crankshaft spins the transmission, and the transmission then spins the wheels. The crankshaft is almost as long as the entire width of your engine, and is held at each end by seals that serve to keep the oil that gets pumped around the engine block inside. If you were to jam a wooden pencil sideways through two opposite sides of a milk carton and then spin the pencil, all the milk would leak out unless you put seals where the pencil enters and exits the carton. Replacing either of the two seals on most engines is labour intensive and will cost about three to four hours worth. You can calculate a cost based on hourly rates at your local garage plus whatever a new seal costs. I have no idea of the part cost of a seal for your car. You can usually operate a car with leaky seals so long as you keep replacing the lost oil. At some point in the fairly distant future, though, the seal will get so worn out it dumps all your oil out faster than you can pour it in and if you run your car with no oil it will die very. very. fast. Leaking oil is also an environmental hazard and depending where you live could be grounds for citations and fines.
