Good job fallacy. But it appears that you didn't clean that cooler area before you put it back together.

Each post has it's own little area, or frame if you will. On the bottom left of the frame for my first post there are three little images. The middle one is reputation points.

mhm. Only difference I can think of is simply the location of the oil cooler and oil filter, which is only different if the block has ATTS. Wherever the oil filter is though is where the oil cooler is located, and thusly the oil cooler o-ring.

i have the same issue with my honda, drove like that for almost a week topping up the oil, until i saw the leak!!

only drips when on, but the housing looks clean!! could it be the oil pressure switch right below the oil filter? i cant seem to find the part on the net or a diagram with it on hondaparts....

Mine looked pretty clean too so I never suspected it until I got underneath my car while it was running. Honestly, that's the best way to check although make sure you take all the proper precautions to prevent the car from moving while you're under it.

WOW this just happen to me last weekend. I was on my way home form work at 7am ( I work Nights in a NOC) its 21 degrees out and BAM! it happens in traffic had to pull over and and sure enough oil was poring out from the bottom of the car! well I am thinking to my self my engine was blown due to the massive oil flow. then decide to call my mechanic buddy and he came picked me and the car up. when got it to his shop and we put it on a the lift and at first we though it was the oil pressure switch but after further investigation and me in the car 10 feet off the ground starting the car he found it was the O-ring. So the lude is back on the road ! So now to start replacing all the seals lol.

my car has now been in the garage for a few days until i have time to fix it, i just checked the dip stick, and its DRY!!!! no oil on it at all!!!


should there be a check engine or oil light that comes on???? which leads me to believe that maybe the sensor right under the oil filter could be the reason for the leak?

My O-ring didnt stay in when i was putting the new one back one the oil cooler so i put gasket glue or something like that and it worked perfectly. Just wanted to add that in if anyone else had that issue of the o-ring not staying on the oiler cooler. and thanks again fallacy helped me a lot.

No problem! Did you try oiling up the new o-ring before seating it?

This is exactly why I have an oil cooler o-ring and a 30MM socket in my glovebox at all times. So when it happens to me I will be ready.

i drained the oil.... i dont have a rack and i gotta jack the front pretty high to get under without having my belly touching the stupid oil pan... makes for a pretty good spill. fluid will travel up if its final resting spot is lower than the starting spot as long as its a constant flow. eg: when you syphin gas out of a gas tank by sucking on the hose than letting it pour into a canister on the ground. i used a 1 -1/4. car smoked like hell every time i stopped.

Yup, that's the oil burning off the flex pipe from dripping oil. That's actually what tipped me off to this leak, because I knew beyond all shadow of a doubt that my oil filter and drain plug were tightened down properly.
