Angry Leaking oil bad please help

I noticed that every couple weeks i am low about 2 quarts of oil, so i decided to reseal my oil pan since it was all gunky. that didnt seem to be the problem though. i've noticed that it is leaking badly from around the oilfilter housing or w.e. its called, and i was wondering if you guys have any information to help me out, thanks.

when you did your last oil change, are you sure that the oil filter gasket came off with the filter and did not stick to the block? if that is the case you could have 1 filter with 2 gaskets. that would definitely leak.

I just scrapped my 95 lude. check your oil pump housing first for a bad seal then a cracked housing. mine leaked 3 quarts in one week...then 4 quarts in one day....spun bearing

If your filter is fine alot of the time the oil cooler housing will leak where it meets the block. Go to Honda and get a new O ring if this is your problem, it only costs a couple of bucks. They get old and dry after a while and it will make a mess all over your motor sometimes even the tranny. As for your tranny leak i would first try your axle shaft seals. Its alot easier to find a leak if your first spray down and clean the crap out of the bottom of the motor then watch it to try to pin point the leak

the oil cooler housing gasket is bad. it is right behind the oil filter. I have a 94 si and mine just went about 2 weeks ago. oil was pouring out like crazy!!! the gasket is cheap, only a few bucks. If you get it done at a shop it will cost about 100 to fix w/ labor, maybe a little more but not much!! or do it yourself if you got the means too. Peace Knyce1

Don't know too much about your prelude but, I made the mistake of taking my 96 Cobra to "Iffy" Lube to get an oil change and the snot nosed kid somehow loosened the center oil filter bolt (the threaded bolt that your oil filter screws on to), so the oil filter wouldn't seal against the block cause it was bottoming out on the threaded bolt. It was leaking all over the place and didn't notice until I woke up the next morning and there was a nice puddle in my garage.

damn. he got fired lol. I work at mobil 1 and if anyone did that shit they would def get the boot. HAAHA ive done the infamous double gasket before. that shit sucks. Check all your seals out, I.e. valve covers, head gasket, tranny pan gasket, and replace with filter gasket set if need be, etc.

I agree 100% with everything robmea said.. Its under the oil cooler.. 10 min job. Takes freaking big arse socket though,, like 22 or 24 mm something like that..
Clean the hell out of everything.. Go get some uv dye and a fluorescent blacklight and using the blacklight you'll be able to trace any leaks that are hard to see... Its cool to paint on naked chicks under the blacklight too... At least thats what she said...
