My mother has a 97 VTi (NZ new, F22 VTEC) with the same problem.

It's about a days labour to replace it. G'box has to come out and the flywheel or torque converter and drive plate, if its an Auto, have to come off.

The seal is press fit into a cover plate that goes over the end of the crank.
There is no chance the crank could be worn at the point it passes through the seal. You may also have to remove the sump to access it.

Your looking at about a days labour, plus fluids etc.

Mechanics hourly rate varies A LOT over the whole USA. Varies even more around the world. If we knew where you're located, maybe someone has some idea.
