Question about 1998 Honda Accord
I have an oil leak on my Honda Accord right behind the oil filter if you were looking from the tire to the inside of the engine. Now my first thought was the oil gasket and I went ahead and changed that...waited for it to cure, put the oil back in there and to my surprise...boom! It is still leaking oil from the same spot around the oil pan. I know this mean two things: 1- I did the oil gasket wrong; 2- Its not leaking from the oil gasket at all. Which brings me to you guys...is there anywhere else that the oil leak could be coming from? and if so is this something I could do at my garage? Note: Oil leak is constant while engine is running.

SOURCE: i have an 86 honda
There are two slots in the valve cover right by the cam shaft sprocket that have to be honda bonded or black rtv. look closely at the valve cover right above the gasket underneath the timing belt cover. Hope that helps.

is it an ex?
is it a bad leak?
it could be 2 things
1) oil pressure sending unit above the filter
2) "o" ring between the oil cooler and block on ex models only. the oil cooler is between the filter and block with 2 coolant hoses attached to it. also might be the oil filter. i replace alot of sending units and oil cooler o rings.

Nope, just replace the oil filter. The filter may be loose or if the oil filter was placed without oil on the O-ring before installation will cause the O-rings to fail. If the car is due for an oil change, might as well service the engine and replace the oil and filter. Good luck and hope it's not the oil pressure sensor which will leak when it fails too and it's most of the time located by the oil filter area in most cars.
