Question about 1998 Honda Accord
I have a 98 honda accord and there is a small oil leak ( little drips) from the oil drain plug. I have changed the plug with a new one several times and even placed gasket sealer on the threads on some occasion but it still leaks by droplets, not much. The pan is not dented and seem perfectly fine. I just hate the fact that it is leaking. I would say I lose about a quart every 3000 miles. Help!!!!
Its going to be the treads of the oil pan. tale it to an auto shop and have them re tap(put new threads) in the oil pan and this will fix the problem. hope this helps.

You need a washer on the drain plug. This will create the seal.
