Rear main or oil pan?? What's more common to leak?

So I have a pretty good drip coming from the back of the block before I remove the inspection cover , just wanted to ask ... What's more common to leak?

Check for a leak in the valley. Leaks there will run down the back of the block.

The EVPV on the turbo pedestal is a common place for a leak.

Like was said. Check the valley and back of heads. The rear main almost never leaks on these.

The pan uses SPECIAL RTV to seal it, not a gasket
