Default Leaking oil

So I have an oil leak from the back of my motor. I thought the oil pan didn't seal correctly when I put in the new motor. It turns out that isn't the problem. Im %90 sure its leaking from the bell housing. I'm also %100 percent sure its not the rear main seal. I just had the oil pressure switch changed because it was leaking from there too. Is there a plug or anything else that could leak from the back of the engine? My mechanic is going to drop the trans and run it like that to see where its leaking but I wanna figure it out before he has to do this. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advanced. Oh yeah its a 99 ranger sport 3.0 5spd 4x4

Check the grommet around the PCV valve as well as the hose going from it to the upper intake. Its located on the back of the drivers side valve cover, odds are this is the problem.
