Kia Carnival v6 2600 developed massive oil leak suddenly, near timing pulley, any suggestions?

There is a seal behind that pulley, pressure wash all the oil that has leaked out and run it and see if that seal is the source of the leak or it is coming from somewhere else. You need a completely clean engine to find an oil leak

V09a1aa4ak oil capacity

There is no need to add oil to an ac compressor unless you have had a massive leak. new compressors come with the right amount of oil. The compressor oil circulates with the gas and by the time the gas pressure drops from a leak then the amount of oil leaked out is just a few drops. Excessive oil in the system stops the TX valve from working and causes problems . If still in doubt then talk to an accredited ac specialist

97' Honda Accord is leaking oil around where the oil filter is located. there is no extra gasket there.

Above the oil filter is the oil-pressure switch for the light in the cluster. That's a sorta-common source of leaking. Oil leaks directly through the defective switch, coming out around the rubber boot where the wire attaches.You didn't state what size engine you have so I will send you a link to both engines that is listed for the 97 model.

Leaking oil from around a small plug near the oil

This is the oil pressure sending unit.

The easiest thing to do is get a new one, remove the old wone, and install the new one.

The oil is supposed to be kept separate from the electrical part, but sometimes they spring an internal leak. Replacing is easier than trying to get really specific about just where the oil is coming from. And once you do get specific, you almost always reach the same finding: a new unit is needed.

Oil light coming on, but has plenty of oil

Oil pressure sensors seem to be the least reliable of them all; I'd replace it first and if it is still showing low pressure, have a shop check with a real pressure gauge. It shouldn't cost much and won't take long to do.
If it then shows low pressure, the oil pump may be worn or the pickup impeded with gunk (bad maintenance.)

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.
