Oil leak from left to right from the frame rail to frame rail, heavier at right side to the middle from the pan down filter. Mount filter covered in oil frame rail dripping oil pan to transmission dripping in oil transmission dripping in oil. New front main seal clean and dry back of pan dry. Cleaned all the oil off ran it one hour no oil. Drove it around town about 15 miles parked it oil all over. Does anyone have a ideas to where to look? I thought rear main but there would be more oil at the transmission area. Thanks for the help.

Good morning,

The first thing I would check is the oil filter. See if it is leaking as that would explain the location.

Also, the oil pressure switch is located near there as well. I attached a picture of where the oil filter and the pressure sensor for you to see.

I would clean the area of all oil and then run the car. You can go to a self serve car wash and pressure wash the area of all debris.
