Question about 1993 Honda Accord

Oil leaking from some sort of plug above the oil filter

My 1993 Honda Accord DX is leaking oil from above the oil filter. We had someone look at it and they said that it was coming from this plug but he didn't know what the plug was, my question is what could this plug be and how to fix the problem. It is not the oil pan gasket either which we origanally thought the problem was.

If the leak is coming directly from above the oil filter it is more than likely the oil pressure switch is leaking. The seal around the Oil pressure switch could have gone bad and now it is leaking.

The oil pressure switch is located right above the the oil filter and above the cooling system cross pipe.

1992 honda accord needs oil every 10 minutes of drive time


This is not good . With that much oil in that amount of time.
Unless there is a cloud of smoke so thick coming out of the tail pipe you cannot see through it, There must be an external oil leak. If you look under your Honda and there is oil all over the underside it will be necessary to locate the general area of the leak to pin point the problem area. Starting with the oil filter and drain plug. You may need help with that.

1992 Honda Accord Oil Leak


Check the threads on the new sender/switch. They should be slightly tapered. Some of the less expensive replacement parts have straight threads, try a new part from the Honda dealer. The grey/white stuff is teflon type pipe sealant, this is the correct material to use on the sender threads. Clean the threads in the block very well first.

Oil leaks from the oil filter adapter


If it is not the suggested gasket that is leaking then it is the oil pressure switch located exactly above the oil filter adapter. The black plastic housing could have developed a crack and oil will ooze downward and drip off the bottom of the adapter. I had this problem and changing the oil pressure switch took care of it.

Oil leak around oil filter


Are you positive the leak is coming from the filter?
It could be coming from above it, perhaps the valve cover which is common. Take a look.
Post what engine you have also, the more info offered the better chance someone can help with a problem.
