Question about 1993 Honda Accord
Oil is spraying from some where on the oil filter base plate on my 1993 honda accord. my accord has a base plate that is attached to the block and has cooler lines running out of it. my question is-is there another name for the base plate and how does it come off of engine, is there a gasket or o-ring behinde it, and is this a common problem? any help appreciated- have to fix in 2 days
It does have an O ring buts its irregularly shaped. it is usually held on by 3 bolts(mine was). and the top most bolt was very close to my oil pressure sensor....(had to take it out to avoid breaking it) i needed a very short ratchet wrench and get it out. Make sure you get the ring from a Honda Dealership if you can.(i have bad luck with aftermarket parts on my Hondas).The reason why mine was spraying is because the baseplate was actually cracked. so i also had to buy a new one ( yes they have them too) O-ring 12.00 bucks baseplate was 39.00 bucks for me, might be a bit more for yours since your Honda is a little newer (mine was an 89 accord) oil filter baseplate or mountplate are some terms (so you were right on) hope this helps.
