My honda civic is leaking oil excessivly out of what I think is my spool valve. Im not sure why it is doing this but when my engine is on I can watch the oil pour out of it. Any help would be greatly appreciated

Better do something about it or else the engine will seized due to excessive friction. What do you mean by a spool valve be specific maybe I can help-

If you can see the leak on the spool valve its either an o-ring or gasket that is leaking-
