A valve cover gasket would be easy to fix- easier than a rear mainseal- take the car to the carwash and spray it off- put a plastic bag over the distributor and fuel injection electronics- do not get electronics wet! but since you are spraying off the tranny you should be able to keep the water localized- then for the next few days check the engine and see where that oil is coming from

i also have another issue when i let my car sit over night and go to start it in the morning my rpm's sit above 2000 for about 2-3 mins then decrease, but after it decreases the needle jumps between 1000-2000 a couple times then the cel comes on right after, i asked one one my co-workers about it and they said it could be a vaccum leak or something to do with my radiator.
