Remove the cover that the dipstick goes through. There are 6 bolts. I have attached a photo of the gasket. The small hole in the upper left corner of the photo is the hole where the dipstick goes through. This 1s a pretty simple job. Looks to me to be less that a half hour ... including a cold one!!!
