I have a 91 Accord that has a slight oil leak. It is dripping at the
oil pan, driver side corner, nearest to the firewall. It is obivously
coming off the mid-section of the engie, below the head. Any idea
where the oil is coming from? It leaks about 1 liter every 4 weeks,
but I'm getting tired of the mess under the car everytime and
everywhere I park it. Oil sensor?
Common leak on this car is the oil pressure sender, located above the
oil filter. I replaced mine while the filter was off for an oil change.
Did it from under the car. I take the left front tire off when I do my
oil changes, so it's easier to get to the drain plug and filter.
Other seals on the front of the engine can also leak, and I had to
replace the oil pan and gasket too when they leaked.
