I have an oil leak in the front valley of the oil pan. I installed a new gasket and it still leaks in the same spot, any suggestions?

Do you
have the same problem?

Maybe it's the front crank seal and not the pan leaking.

I replaced the timing cover that came with a new crank seal.

Then there has to be a problem with the installation.
