The sump gaskets can leak too, looking like a rear main seal.

Before jumping the gun and assuming its the rear main seal. Degrease the area and check sump bolts are torqued up to spec. The inspection plate can be removed from the trans to getter a better look.

Also have a check with a mirror and torch around the rear rocker cover area - if the half moon gasket area leaks, the oil will flow downwards, and make it seem like a rear main seal leak.

there's alot of diffrence from a rear main leak to an rokker cover leak the cover leaks are usually like a mist not a actual dripping leak unless you've got massive blow by... look at the little gap between the engine and trans, if there oil coming out of it you've got a problem
