Dist o-ring fixed but still leaking

K so i had the dist oring leaking (dripping right from the bottom, onto that sensor thats below it), i pulled it off, and replaced the oring with one i bought from Honda dealer (oem replacement part), coated it with oil per the helms, poped it back on, and its still leaking.
No i did not put gasket sealant on it, but yes oil as perscribed
The seal I got seemed to not quite be the same width as the seat it sits in, like a good 1-1.5mm smaller, i measured the old seal and the size is 28mm IN diameter, 34mm OUT diameter and about 3.5mm thickness, doesthat sound about right? And should i be using gasket sealant instead (or in addition to?) of coating it with oil?
I've ordered this size o-ring from advanced auto's website (they didnt have it in stock when i went) hopefully it'll fix up the leaking, 300 miles into my new (used) engine and i've had to put 3 quarts in :/
