Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

The leak may still be from the front crank seal or it may be coming from another area. It's possible the seal was damaged when installed or the area it rides on may be worn. It isn't uncommon for a crank seal to wear a groove in a crankshaft or crank damper and cause repeat leaks. The oil could also be coming from the timing cover, oil pan or valve cover.

Are you able to upload a picture showing the leak?
