OIL LEAK!!

Honda Accord

Yes, I seem to have an oil leak coming from the left side of the engine on my 1991 Honda Accord Ex, manual with 142000 miles on it. I was wondering if it can be the front main seal or is it the timing cover seals? If that is the case, should the timing belt be changed beacuse of it? And are the front main seal and the timing cover seals related to this? Thanks.

I take it the engine is the 2.2L. I would guess that the problem is with either the seal or the oil pump. I would go for the oil pump. That is under the timing belt cover. I would take off the covers and check to see if the oil leak is coming from the oil pump area. Replace the oil pump, water pump and timing belt.
