Oil leak at bottom of timming belt cover

what engine.? lots of engines, used. and 21 models of civic, USA.
its usually.
1: valve cover, (yes, most can leak from top down behind the belt.
2: cam seals
3: crank end seal
4: oil pump seals.
6: oil pan ( last choice)

finding oil leaks takes hard work , clean, it find it .
or use the dye kits.

gravity and wind, allows it to go where ever IT wants.
so it must be clean first to find it.. see?

ever look here?

question, at the 60k mile service points. you check lash, settings.
with a new timing belt. and at such point, a new valve cover gasket gets fitted, did you? if yes, its not leaking if not>????
the front edge of the VC gasket, leaks down behind what i call
the VC leak hidder, tin pan. plate. behind the cam cog
is a plate, and the VC leaks down from there to the cam seal
then down front of engine, then past crank seal the, to cover.
seen this on all most all OHC engines...
cause, nobody does the 60k or does it and uses the old gaskets.

How to replace oil filter with new 1 on a 1994 honda civic hatchback

The following procedure explains how to change the oil, and filter.
  1. Before changing the oil, see that the vehicle is situated on a flat surface with the engine warmed; warm oil will flow more freely from the oil pan.
  2. Turn the engine OFF, open the hood and remove the oil filler cap from the top of the engine valve cover. CAUTION
    Hot oil can burn you. Keep an inward pressure on the plug until the last thread is cleared, then, quickly remove it.
  3. Place a container under the oil pan large enough to catch the oil. A large, flat drain pan is the most desirable.
  4. Remove the oil drain plug. Allow the oil to drain completely.
  5. When the oil has finished draining, install the drain plug, then tighten until just snug. Use a new washer (if applicable) on the plug.
  6. Move the oil drain pan or use a second pan under the oil filter; the filter retains some oil which may drain when it is removed.
  7. Using an oil filter wrench, loosen the filter by turning it counterclockwise, then unscrew it by hand.
  8. Using a clean cloth, wipe the filter mounting surface of the cylinder block. Apply a thin coat of clean oil to the new filter gasket and install the filter by hand carefully threading it on turning clockwise. Tighten it as much as you can by hand, then use the wrench to turn it an additional 1/2 to 3/4 turn.
  9. Remove the drain pan from under the engine. NOTE: Used engine oil is an extreme environmental hazard. Proper disposal of used engine oil is very important. Rather than dumping the oil in storm drains or throwing it in the trash, you should take it to an approved recycling center. Many shops will accept used engine oil. If you are uncertain where to take the oil, many local municipalities can direct you.
  10. Add the correct amount of recommended oil into the filler hole on top of the valve cover. Be sure that the oil level registers near the full line on the oil dipstick.
  11. Install the filler cap. Start the engine without touching the accelerator pedal and allow it to idle. The oil pressure light on the instrument panel should go out after a few seconds.
  12. Run the engine for 1-2 minutes and check for leaks. Turn the engine OFF, then, after a few minutes, recheck the oil level; add oil. Be sure to check for oil leaks. If you find any, correct them immediately.
  13. Recheck and/or refill the engine with oil. NOTE: If the filter leaks, make sure the old filter gasket is not on the mounting flange. If the old gasket is not on the flange, tighten the filter a little more. If it still leaks, try another filter.

Hello. I have oil leak on 97 civic that covers the bottom of egine backwards. Could it be as simple as the oil pan gasket needing replaced? I am now having to replace a quart a little over a month...

First have ur engine DEGREASE and pressure wash to check where could be the leak coming from, u could just go to ur garage service or anyone has a HiGH PREASSURE washer just to dislodge the oil from ur engine!
U have to check the FRONT CRANKSHAFT OiL SEAL, valve cover gasket, and the (ignition)distributor oil seal(this is the area usually where oil coming out from Honda cars)

Why does my 1994 honda civic waste so much oil. i pour oil every other day but i have no leaks

My friend;
Try this;
1. You may use bad grade {brand} oil.
2. You could be driving fast {speeding up}.
3. You may have bad cylinder / piston ring, which causing oil to leaks inside the cylinder & burn it up through exhaust.
4. Check the quality of your oil: your car must or should use 20W-50 viscosity .
5. Check your radiator it should NOT has oil mixed with its water.

Try it, & PLZ; let me know if I add any benefits to you.
I hope I add some thing valuable to you.
