Theres just a couple of drops of oil underneath. If leaking would be the main reason of dissapearing oil, everything down there would be messy and black.

If its burning off before hitting the ground or building up somewhere...it would be hard to tell


Trace the drops. Clean whats there.


Do a compression test if you feel it may be the rings

Sorry to bump a really old thread, but I just solved my leak issue and wanted to share.
Someone mentioned this before but might be worth adding the VTEC solenoid base gasket to the list. That ended up being my issue. 36172-P08-015
I was leaking almost 5 quarts between oil changes because of that. It finally cracked and leaked a quart in 10-15 minutes.

This little sucker is located underneath the intake, above the ATTS unit, and far enough past the oil filter housing as to make it impossible to reach without taking off the ATTS. Unfortunately, I couldn't take off the ATTS because the driver's side axle refused to come out, and it blocks one of the bolts that holds the ATTS to the block, so I pulled the engine. Bit drastic, but effective. And it made it very easy to change the seals. Piece of advice: When taking off the crank gear, there is a small retainer under it with two 10mm bolts holding it to the block. I didn't see this and managed to snap the edge off the gear backing plate. Serious crapola. But all that to say that I wouldn't have been able to do this without MommysLittleMonster and his amazing leak guide. Thank you!
Is it possible to buy just the oil pressure switch seal? or do you need to buy the entire switch? My engine is currently out an I'm replacing litereally every seal I can (need it or not) beacuse I'm hoping i dont have to do this for another 100k. Since this one is so hard to get to once the motor is back in the car I'd like to take care of it. Any advice? I'm having a tough time finding a part number for just the seal.
