The oil drain tube for the turbo leaked real bad on my IDI it looked like the rear main.It leaked from the passenger side frame rail all the way over to the top of my trans and the oil drain tube for the oil overflow on the bottom, which made me think that it was my rear main seal...WRONG! I actually Tore the trans and flywheel out and replaced it to only findout that it wasnt it. took it to the shop and they said it was the oil drain tube for the turbo! I have been to a ford dealership and they told me as well that the rear main seal is not very likely to leak on the PSD.If its puffing smoke out of the dipstick when running thats blow by. Im no expert but this my experience.Good luck and I feel your pain. Been there done that.
