I did mine a month ago. Ok, learning curve aside, i'm pretty sure i did everything right. HOWEVER, now i went from a few drips to "hey man, you're leaking oil". Haven't driven since, but before i pay a mechanic to do it "right", I think I read on some writeup it takes a while for the seal to "swell up and seal". Was this the case with yours - or dry after replacement??
