I "apparently" had a rear main leak on my '02 but it turned out that the oil pan bolts were loose...at 14,000 miles. So hopefully thats your problem because when it was originally looked at I was told it was the rear main. But what your looking at to have them repair I am not sure of.

Yeah, I definitely just had that done on my 99' WS6 along with the pinion seal and the machanics fixed all of the seals for under $400 so I hope this helps you...Oh yea and it's definitly critical because when mine leaked for a while I seriously felt a difference when I shifted.
i had to have the dealership replace my transmission and headers because of hitting a road hazard and now i also have an oil leak. i'm wondering if mine is a rear main seal also. i'm going to check to see if the oil pan is bolted tight later today as well
the rear main seal costs a lot because in order to get to it you have to pull the tranny, and flywheel. so it all depends on how honest the mechanic is.. i know for a fact with a lift it only takes about an hour to drop a tranny, i just did it, and after the tranny is out about 2 minutes to pull the flywheel.. and the rear main seal is right there.. so total its only about 2-3 hours of work. plues like 20 for the seal. around here mechanics charge on average 50/hour.. so i wouldnt pay more than 250 for the job.

RMS for the f-bodies pays 3.7 hours for MT and 2.3 for AT. At $90/hr labor rate, it should be $333.00 labor plus parts/tax. AT cars should be $207.00 plus parts/tax. I'm not sure what a RMS runs but it should be more than $30-50. $400-$450 is what you should be looking to pay.
