that would be your crank oil seal. I can garantee you that the dealer is not going to charge you 200 bux to change it, cause well I use to work for subaru.

you have to tear off the entire front of the motor, belts pullyes, front plastic cover, crank pully timing belt....its a big job.

if someone will do it for a 100 bux your a better man then me.

what kind of car do you have? how many miles, dohc or sohc, dohc suck especially lining the timing pulleys back and the belt....

ughhh...
