May be totally unrelated but I had the same issue on a 95 civic. It has "spark plug seals" that needed to be replaced. Dealer did it for about $250.

You can buy a canister wrench at the local auto parts store. You do not need to torque the oil filter on, just hand tighten, No new gasket for the drain plugs just do make sure that it is tightened properly

SOURCE: change the spark plugs
you need a special socket for your car. its deep socket with thin wall. what i did was to bring my socket to a machine shop and made my tool thinner

It may be the gromet for the PCV valve or it could be the spark plug rubber seal located in the valve cover if it is the type of engine that has the wires and spark plugs that go down through the valve cover, if this is the case buy a valve cover gasket with the rubber gromets that are located around the base of the hole where spark plugs fit through and install.
