for the past month ive been following an oil leak on what appears to be my rear main seal, the bell of the trans is covered with oil but mostly on the right passangers side while the left side is dry, i also started noticing that the right side of the oil pan is a little wet with brown liquid(probably oil), so i just want to know is it possibe for the rear of the oil pan to leak over the tranny and make it look like a rear main seal leak.

btw it is not the valve cove gasket, already checked

The area you describe is directly under or near the oil filter, isn't it? When you take the filter off for an oil change oil dribbles down everywhere. Wash it all down with water and engine degreaser and see if you still have signs of leakage.
