Default crank seal check - lowers idle?

I was checking the crank seal on my 97 XLT with starter fluid and it actually dropped the idle, then after a few seconds raised back up to normal.

Assuming this is still a bad condition as it's affecting idle, but surprised me as I thought it would only raise.

Any thoughts?

If spraying the crank seals affects the engine's RPM then you have a leak. They'll need to be changed out.

No matter how the idle is affected, up or down?

If spraying something near the crank seals affects RPM that means that some how it is getting into the engine and affecting it.
