1998 Impreza Outback
white with dents

Default 2 bad crank seals in 2 weeks?

1998 2.2 16v impreza
100k miles

just bought the car.
car smoked like mad

Local mechanic changed the crank seal and both valve cover gaskets
Crank seal started leaking again after 25 miles of hway driving

Changed it again
This time it lasted 2 days. It leaks much less but it shouldn't leak at all!
What is this mechanic doing wrong?
