An oil leak has nothing to do with the timing. The rubber in a seal tends to get harder the older the car gets. If you are trying to buy the car and this is the only real problem you find, ask them to fix this problem or you won't buy the car. The car should have lots more miles left on it, if you keep the fluids changed and drive sensibly in the future.

Good luck.

Engine oil is dripping from the timing belt side of my 2000 accord after idling for about 5 minutes. Happened after cleaning the throttle body. Any help, ty


Cleaning your throttle body is irrelevent to the oil leak behind the timing cover. There are 5 seals that can leak behind the 2000 accord timing cover, the oil pump, crank seal, cam seal, and the 2 balancer seals. Most of the time its the front balancer seal that has popped out and will need to be replace and have and retaining kit install. Its actually very common on that engine. I highly recommend taking it to a professional to get repaired because timing the 2 balancer gears with the cam and crank is very tricky even for the mechanically inclined. Since the timing belt and the balancer belt has to come off and is probably soaked in oil, I recommend replacing those as well.

All the more reason you should get either the wiring harness repaired or the speed sensor replaced (since you've been a mechanic, you know the risk).

The only thing i agree on is the gas consumption (stock) is very bad...... after installing a cold air intake alone my gas mileage was much better ...and now i have test pipe and down pipe plus HKS ssq bov and my car sucks gas like a 1.6 liter honda civic.
