getting some leaking oil from bottom of car and seems to be getting worse.

I was told years ago it was rear main, but never trusted their
diagnosis because they had told me I needed a new head gasket
when in reality the oil was leaking from a loose oil filter.

If I put the car up on ramps, what should I be looking for?
I figure I clean all the junk off the bottom and tighten all the pan and tranny bolts.

is there any 'quick' way to tell if rear main?

any products recommended that could be added to oil that shows
up in a color so as to see the actual leak better?

Look at the bottom of the engine where it mates to the tranny.

In between the block and tranny.

Bad rear main seal.
