Default Oil film on pan

Question how easy is it to blow the front oil seal on a turbo car? Every time I change oil I notice a film where the drain hole is. Itís coming from above the drain hole somewhere. My assumption is itís a seal. If so how much to replace and what is the best type for a turbo car

Do you have any issues with your oil pressure readings? I had a steady leak and it ended up being the oil pressure sensor. Here is some info, I changed mine by pulling the windshield trim piece and cutting the through the shroud to access it, it's right behind the manifold. It only takes about 30-40 min max doing that way. https://www.corvetteforum.com/forums...placement.html

If you have a film around the drain hole its probably not the front seal. My guess would be the drain plug is leaking or the oil pan gasket itself is leaking. Try to trace the oil back to the point of origin.
