My 3.1 had oil EVERYWHERE underneath it and the leak turned out to be the O-ring on the oil pump drive shaft on top of the engine. The oil pump drive shaft is where the distributor used to be on the 2.8. Check this before you replace the rear seal. Check it when the engine is cold, mine would quit leaking when the engine was warm.
