    Hey everyone.

    Today my sister moved my car and while she was doing it, the car suddenly
    started leaking oil out of the right side (if you are looking at the
    engine from the front of the car). It leaks very quickly where it actually
    leaves a trail when moving the car. A couple months ago I changed the oil
    and found that the spark plugs were covered in oil. I didn't know if
    Hondas are like that, or if it could be something serious. Could these be
    related? Also, what could be causing the leak right now?

    Thanks. :)

    Sounds like the balance shaft seals have popped out. have the car towed to
    the garage and have them replaced. The oil on spark plugs is probably from
    leaking valve cover seals. Yes these are all common problems with this
    generation accord.

    Well actually i found the main problem now. Oil is pouring out of the lower
    seal(im not good with cars - but its the spot where the wheel turns with
    the belt on it, on the lower right.)

    will this be an expensive job to fix?

    thanx for the posts :)

    Not sure what seal you're making reference to, but if it ends up being a
    crankshaft seal, then its gonna cost some money...mostly due to the
    labor. The actual seal is less than $5.
