Could a rear main seal be why my oil poured out?

Presumably you are referring to the engine crankshaft rear oil seal...

The oil seal has various designs depending on age and application and while they all sometimes leak to varying degrees it is very rare such a leak can be described as "pouring out".

When something drastic does happen to the rear crankshaft seal, there are usually other influences causing the seal to leak - a blocked engine breather is fairly common and older engines sometimes have seals made of a material that is intolerant to some of the modern oil additives.

Some engine designs provide other possible sources of oil leaks at the rear of the cylinder block but the transmission and the flywheel will need to be removed in order to assess the situation...

I will try and simplify the problem. I have an oil leak, which I traced up the back of the engine to the cylinder head area.
When I removed the top plastic cover on top of the coil packs I found oil in every recess next to the coil packs. The crankcase breather pipe was also off. The source of the leak is not evident, but it is definetely above the cylinder head gasket area.

1995 Camry Oil Pressure Sender location

Yes, is it the 4 or V6? I think it is either the oil pump shaft seal, or the crankshaft nose seal. The second one can be damaged by work in that vicinity such as removal of the crankshaft sprocket.

The oil pressure sender is not at that location on the 4-cyl or the 3VZ V6, but on the 1MZ V6 it is on the front face of the engine block below the alternator mount.

Oil is getting on air breather 2004 ram hemi

oil getting on a breather can indicate excessive crankcase pressure. Check all the `crankcase breathers and the valve cover breathers.

if the crankcase has been overfilled with engine oil. The crankshaft has to "beat" it's way through the oil and thus acts as a pump and sends oil all over the internal surfaces of the crankcase.

If the engine cylinders have developed 'blow-by" they will also contribute to an increase in crankcase pressure which will be evident by oil in the breathers. The fumes / pressure in the crankcase are designed to be removed by the engine breather system, and drawn through the engine etc.

I hope this info helps.

Oil leaking between the gearbox and engine???

The main reason for the oil leakage is most probably due to the rear crankshaft seal.
First thing to do is check the engine breather is clear. You can clean it with isopropyl alcohol and dry with a heat gun.

1999 cross country v70 awd crankshaft seal replacement

Your info is confusing. The rear cam seal is not inside the timing belt cover, and the crank seal is at the bottom of the engine, while the cam seal is at the top.

Is there oil at the top, around the cam seal? Or just at the bottom? It's common for the oil pump seal to leak. If you get the oil pump reseal kit, it contains the oil pump seal and gasket, as well as the crankshaft seal. Make sure you seal the oil pump bolts, Volvo has special copper washers for this purpose.

Just try to locate the oil leak before replacing any more parts. Sometimes it can be something simple like the oil cap seal or the oil trap housing.
