it could be a simple replacement of the oil filter, remove the extra oil filter gasket left on when the filter was changed
excessive tightening of the filter
or replacement of the gasket for the housing mount
until you know exactly what is causing the leak , the cost cannot be calculated
First thing is to make sure the oil filter gasket is on and that only one is on it and not two. You want to make sure the oil filter is sealed properly to the oil filter housing first because this too can cause oil to leak. This can be a common mistake. Remove the oil filter and double check the oil filter has only one gasket on it and make sure it is not spit. Put the oil filter back on, with one good gasket, and clean the area up and top the oil off to proper fill and then start the vehicle and look at the filter as the engine is running. If you see no leaks after a few seconds then this may have been your issue. If you still see oil leaking the you will need to remove the oil filter and remove the oil filter housing. One of the "O" rings inside might have cracked or shifted. I recommend not driving or starting the engine until this issue is repaired.
Hi hope this helps.
When you removed the old filter, did you check if the old oil filter rubber gasket was removed also.
Some time when you remove the oil filter the old o-ring will get stuck on the filter housing.
Then when you place the new filter on you have what is called a double gasket.
this will cause you to leak oil rapidly.
I would remove the filter and check for a double gasket.
Hope this helps FixYa

If it's a 4.3 there's a gasket on the oil filter housing. Remove the filter, then unbolt the housing from the block. Replace the gasket. If I've helped, please rate my assistance and leave a comment to help others in a similar situation. Thanks and happy holidays.
This is not an easy repair in your driveway, but can be done. 1st thing, have you checked to see if the oil filter is the issue or is it the drain plug? If its the oil filter housing gasket, you will need to remove the filter. The housing is held in place by the threaded bolt assy that the filter screws onto. You will need to remove that bolt, remove the coolant hoses. Clean the engine block surfaces, for the new gasket to mate to, clean the cooling housing surfaces, install the bolt through the housing, and install the gasket onto it. Then install the bolt/housing into the block and tighten the bolt. Install the coolant hoses, oil filter. Fill the cooling system with the coolant that you removed. Fill the engine with oil, start and check for leaks.
my car was doing the exact same thing and i spent about 18 hrs total trying to figure out. if you remove the oil filter, you will notice that the "bracket" that the oil filter attaches to is removable. remove the ENTIRE oil filter assembly. there is a bolt almost behind the crank pulley, its tricky to get to but you can get to it with a 1/4 in drive, swivel, and extension, i do believe it was a 10-12 mm socket (MUST BE ^POINT SHORT WELL) the top left bolt on the assembly you will notice that you can not get out. that is fine, take the rest of the bolts out and let the assembly hang from that bolt, BUT the bolt must me loosend all of the way to achive play in it. take a small screw driver and "break" the seal on the assembly. you will notice 2 holes. around those two holes is a single gasket. even the smallest crack will aloow oil to drip. my car was using about a gallon of oil every ten miles, so you can imagine how much oil i when through, replace the gasket. You can not get the rubber gasket ANYWHERE except a honda dealer. replace. put it together and you all set.
BASIC STEPS: RAISE PASSENGER SIDE.
REMOVE OIL FILTER
AND REPEAT BACKWARDS FOR INSTALLATION
there is a gasket on the oil filter .... upon removing the old filter you have to make sure that the old gasket came off .....if not then it stayed stuck in the filter housing . if the old gasket is there , all you have to do is pull it off with pliers !!!
There is a gasket (oring) you need to get from the dealer. Have them print out a diagram of the oil cooler so you can see how it comes apart. Buy the gasket, remove the oil filter, remove the nut that holds the housing together(it will be at the base of the stud that oil filter screws onto, 27mm deep well), clean out the old brittle cracked o-ring and replace it, reverse disassembly, and smile because you were done in less than an hour.
