There is a single seal on the pump drive shaft , to keep th eoil from going into the water section. So seal needs to be replaced. But the pump has to be completely disassembled to access. See parts list link below.

By the time you order the seals required, and disassemble the pump and reseal, and hope it works, you will have the price of a new pump! And Pumps are even cheaper on Ebay!
