Post Major oil leak behind crankshaft

I own a 2000 Saab 9-5 2.3t and I've had it for a few years.now. It's at 197,034 miles on it and recently started leaking lots of oil. My uncle checked it out and found out it's coming from out behind the front crankshaft pulley. He doesn't know if it fixable. Im trying to figure out how serious it. Should I try to get it fixed or is car no good? Any help would be great

sounds like your front crankshaft seal. should be as simple as popping off the pulley, pulling the seal and tapping in a new one.
