Question about Acura Legend
Had oil pan fixed and hose replaced but still leaking a quart a day oil why It already cost me 700.00 and more still having problem need help
You need to have someone you trust to look under your car for leaks. For that amount of oil loss the leak should show a trail of oil.
There is a rear main seal and it is where the transmission and engine join. Often the oil pan is in the vicinity of this part. Perhaps the repair was misdiagnosed and you actually had a bad rear seal leak instead. Depending on how this style seal is removed, it may require separating the engine from the transmission. Or the repair did not last and you should go back to have it corrected.
If there is no leak under your car, then the oil is going somewhere. The valve seals are the next most probable place.
I hope my solution is helpful, please rate my info.

As to how hard it is to replace that depends. If you can remove the oil pan without removing any other parts then it is a simple repair. But if you must remove other parts in order to remove the pan it can be more difficult. Crawl under the car and see what must be removed in order to get the pan off. If you can buy a new oil pan for $95 then by all means buy it and replace it yourself or hire a trusted mechanic to do it for you. I can assure you it will not cost $300. At least find out what it will cost if done by someone other than the dealer. Honda's are reliable cars but their oil pan drain plugs are not. The problem is Honda uses an aluminum drain plug washer and this requires you to torque it to 29 ft/lbs in order for it to seal properly. Over time this will cause the pan threads, which are weak, to distort and eventually end up stripping out. The solution when you install your new oil pan is to not use an aluminum washer and instead use a fiber washer. If you pay someone else to change your oil, be sure and tell them to leave the fiber washer in place and not to install an aluminum washer. You then torque it to 15 ft/lbs and never have a leak or stripped threads. Another alternative is to just replace the drain plug with an inexpensive rubber drain plug you can purchase at any auto parts store. It will seal the drain and you just throw it away and install a new one at every oil change.

SOURCE: Oil hose leak 97 4x4 Blazer
Oil cooler lines that lead to your radiator or to a cooler mounted in front of radiator.The hoses are quick couplers with o-rings so there is no way to tighten. I don't know why they would leek so often but they usualy go bad where the rubber line gets crimped to the steel line.Not sure if you can get a different oil filter block without the oil cooler line hook ups.This way you can eliminate the cooler lines,or remove the quick couplers at both ends of where your cooler lines hook up and just run hydraulic hoses in place of your coller lines.Where i live you can get hydraulic hoses made at hundreds of places but may not be so redily avalible where you are.

SOURCE: Oil is leaking bad and
is the leak visually on the ground, then it seems like you could get under car and wipe a few things and see what leaks, thats a big leak, car would be leaving a smoke screen behind you from getting all over exhaust system. I would have to say, REAR MAIN SEAL BETWEEN MOTOR AND TRANS, OIL FILTER NOT TIGHT, Is oil all over the timing belt? front gasket/seal failure, Oil sending unit, is the light on or pressure gauge work?
