Rear Main Oil Seal Leak? 200 1988

Since you already had camshaft and crankshaft seal leaks and now a suspected RMS leak I’d guess your crankcase pressure is too high and that is causing your seals to blow out. If it were my car, I’d replace everything in the PCV system that you haven’t already replaced. Namely the flame trap and breather box hoses. They are cheap. I too had a minor RMS leak on my 90 that was difficult to find. It took a number of tries but I finally discovered that the small hose from the flame trap to the intake manifold was clogged. $.78 part - replaced and the RMS leak dried up!

Do note that if you replace the RMS without resolving the possible high crankcase pressure the new seal will be blown out too.
