Maybe I did not phrase my question well, but you are wrong, there is a hard black plastic O-Ring on the left end of the valve cover. I went by the Honda dealer, purchased the $10.43 part, popped the old one out with a screwdriver, snapped the new one in place, and the oil leak is stopped. Not sure but my guess is that this O-Ring is a Honda designed feature to pop early rather than have the valve cover gasket blow under pressure. Thanks for your suggestion however, I think I will hunt me up a manual for the future, but these are great cars, not expecting anything to go wrong!
