If you lost all the oil while the engine was running, you may be looking at over a grand for a new engine (worst case scenario). Did the engine shut off on it's own? Did you hear strange noises and shut it off? We need a little more to go on before we can guess if changing the seal is your only problem.

kohler

no, didnt shut off and no noises. as soon as i noticed it i shut it off. looks like the oil seal just came loose. there is still some oil in there but majority of it came out.

You should be just fine replacing the seal then. Be sure you install the new seal squarely/evenly without damaging it or the shaft surface where it seals.
