1998 honda accord leak around oil pan

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.

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.

SOURCE: honda accord 1992 I have a oil leak around the oil filter is it

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.

SOURCE: oil leak at the oil filter base of 96 Honda Accord V-6

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.

Just bought a used 1996 Honda Accord 4dr 6cyl and it has a major oil problem. when not even on it would leak oil. the car ran out of 5 qts of oil in a 50 mile drive. noticed the oil filter was 1/2 inch...


Yes there is. if it leaks, find out where. You may have engine damage from running the car out of oil. You say it leaks from the oil pump, same as before? was the oil pump replaced? Sounds like a pressure fed leak, so it should be easy to find.

Worn gasket seal around pan, worn or loose oil plug, pin hole in pan, someone forgot to put back the oil cap are some suggestions that come to mind.

Procedure to replace the transmission filter in a 1998 honda accord . first attemp to do it myself.please help


well take a look on the body of the trans some where for a screw on oil filter...it will look just like an oil filter..if nothing, then its probably internal...if you decide to drop the transmission oil pan, check for anything attached to the valve body...remove and change..if nothing, then its probably inside the transmission and will be serviced at the over haul interval only...hope this helps..

Loosing oil after oil change


Check your oil drain plug on the bottom of your oil pan (may be loose or stripped) and check the oil filter connection (may be loose or gasket is pushed to one side).

Oil leaking from some sort of plug above the oil filter


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.

Oil leak


hi common fault on these is the oil switch oil runs down the block around the oil filter and down the sump as you are driving along the air draft blows it all over the place so clean it up run the engine and from underneath the car see where it is coming from the only other things on the sump that would leak are the sump plug washer and the crankshaft main oil seal at the rear of the engine it will be the switch best of luck paul
