I bought my first car and S10 a couple weeks back. The guy told me there was an oil leak but I bought it anyway, I figured I'd fix it, even though I've never worked on a car before. The starter seems to have some oil leaking on it as well the oil pan? (does that make sense? it's a big gray box with a hole in the back of it). I've been reading that if there is oil on the starter then it might have something to do with the rear main seal leaking and that I'd have to pull the engine or transmission out in order to replace that... is that true? Should I start with replacing the starter or will that not fix the problem?
