1997 HONDA CIVIC OIL LEAK

Engine Mechanical problem
1997 Honda Civic 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic

I have what appear to be two oil leaks, forward, about 25" to 28" back from the front bumper, centered, side by side on the garage floor all the time. So far I have replaced valve gasket cover & O-ring, rear main seal replaced, and still have the leaks. Car has about 88,000 miles on it and has been maintained regularly, oil changes, timing belt, water pump, etc. I've spent over 600.00 trying to get the leak fixed and I don't have the money right now to go further, but am concerned it could get serious. Any ideas what might be leaking still?

Thanks

Hi Beaches,

From centre of engine, possible leakage areas are: 1. Distributor O ring or oil seal.
2. Flywheel/drive plate oil seal.
3. VTEC valve O rings, ( if equipped).
