I have an 89 accord that I just replaced the water pump. The antifreeze leak stopped but now I have a bad oil leak. I dont understand what I could have done to make it leak that much oil. It never leaked a drip before I changed the water pump.

Hi nissan240sxboy,

Where is the leaking coming from?

If you had removed the valve cover, recheck the installation.

and cannot place the leak to a specific spot. It seems to leak down by the timing chain cover onto the frame. But its not from the valve cover gasket. Im baffled

If the leak is from within the timing belt cover, the most likely item would be the rear balancer sprocket oil seal.

So we put lucas stop leak in there, do you think that will stop the leak for a while?

Sorry for the error. I got your post mixed up and mistakenly posted a diagram for the 91 model engine.

The leak should be from the oil pump seal and stop leaks would not work if the seal has detached itself from its seat. There are some oi pressure at this area so I donlt think the stop leak is going to work.
