Its not a casual drip, but just bleeding oil when I turn the engine on.
Kinda coming from the oil filter area, but it isnt, because I just changed the oil and made sure it wasnt coming from the oil filter
:huh:
Ideas?
Might be some kind of seal, like my other car I needed to replace the crank seals, it also bled oil like crazy when the engine was turned on.

could be the seal behind the oil filter. Can't think of the proper name of it right now. I'd jack up the car, turn it on, and see where about it's coming from exactly

I did mine last year and you need a 30mm socket which not a lot of people have, luckily my dad had it. And no, its not bad at all, I got it done in about 15 minutes and I'm no mechanic at all.

Another thing it could be is that the o-ring from the old filter got stuck on there and now there's 2 so if's not sealing well. Pretty common problem either way

Wow, small world I guess, this just happened to me too. I just picked up the part today to replace it. Here's a small write-up I found in case it helps anyone doing this (courtesy of 'lOOkatme' on superhonda.com):

your oil cooler seal is leaking.

there is a rubber gasket that is located between the block and the oil cooler. The oil cooler is what connects the block to the oil filter and cools the oil...(duh).

You need to replace the oil cooler gasket which can be found at a honda store.


quick removal and install guide off the top of my head.

Tools needed

30MM socket and a 1/2" drive.

you do not need to drain the oil in the car...unless its time for an oil change.

- remove the oil filter.
- remove the bolt that holds the oil cooler to the block with the 30MM socket.
- pull cooler out and remove old oil cooler gasket.
- Rub lots of oil onto new oil cooler gasket and carefully install new gasket onto oil cooler.
- Once installed and sticking, carefully place oil cooler back onto block and secure oil cooler to block with your hand.
- Press down on the oil cooler and gasket with pressure on one hand while tightening oil cooler bolt to block. If oil cooler is not held in place...possible pinching of new gasket could take place resulting in rapid oil lose and possible problems.
- after hand tightening the oil cooler bolt....you can remove your other hand and tighten with 30MM socket.
- replace oil filter.
