    Might be the pan arch and not the rear main seal. Search for lotsa information.

    Kent,

    I don't follow the specifics of the 3FE engine so this might not apply to your problem. The 1FZ-FE engines have been known to have leaks from the pan arch. Many times this has been the problem and not the rear main.

    GMan didn't specify his vehicle so I was throwing that out to get him pointed in some direction until he gives us more details on his truck.
