Question Now what do I do???

I've got a '96 250 and a couple of weeks ago I noticed a leak was beginning. However, I couldn't look into it further because I was at school in Laramie (200 miles from home). I got home for break today and went to look further into it. I was inside for about 10 min. and when I came out, there was a 6" puddle of oil on the drive. So, I pulled the inspection cover and sure enough, it looks like the rear main is bad. Correct me if I'm worng, but the motor must be pulled in order to replace the seal. I also noticed the tranny and T-case were leaking, not nearly as bad though. I have neither the time or money to be doing these repiars. Should I just get rid of the dagum thing before it starts costing me too much money and buy another truck? I really neet ya'lls advise on this one.

Do you have oil up in the valley of the motor? Where are the leaks coming from on the trans and transfer case?

Ive never heard of having to pull the motor to change a rear main, not sure on a PSD though. Most you just have to drop the tranny.

The trans and T-case I haven't dug into too much yet. My main concern is the rear main (I could play with it and have oil drip on my finger) because the truck is my daily driver. The trans leaks very very minimally, I check the level maybe once every 3 months and it goes down about a quarter of a quart. This is the first time I've seen the T-case leak so this week I'm gonna look into it further.

I meant that you'd probably have to drop the trans to change the rear main.
