Oil leak from the Timing Cover?

Hey everybody, so I just had a timing belt job done. I put on new belts, cam seals, new crank seal and a front balance shaft seal. It is all reinstalled and the car runs great, but there is still an oil leak coming from the timing cover. Did I miss any seals?

Re: Oil leak from the Timing Cover?

If you're 100% positive its still from the timing belt area, it could be from between the oil pump and block, or oil pan and oil pump.

There's also a chance its from the back of the block dripping over to the t-belt area, in which case its the usual suspects of oil cooler, oil pressure sender, oil pan, etc...

There's a rear balance shaft seal as well.

Re: Oil leak from the Timing Cover?

Dude I have this same leak!!

I bought crank oil seal (91212-PAA-A01)
Balance shaft oil seal (91233-PT0-003)
And lower timing cover seal.

I was supposed to be getting this fixed last week, but the guy could do it. I'm shooting sometime soon, but if you try anything please post it here, I'd like to know if you find/fix it!

Re: Oil leak from the Timing Cover?

Where exactly is it leaking from? Inside the upper/middle/lower cover? Is it leaking from a corner of the valve cover? Did you put high-temp sealant or Hondabond on the corners of the valve cover before reinstalling it?

Re: Oil leak from the Timing Cover?

Interested in the outcome. I have a similar leak and plan on attacking it when the weather warms up.

I have heard more about the crank shaft seal leaking more than the balance shaft seals. Once you get everything apart, you will easily be able to tell where the leak is coming from.

Re: Oil leak from the Timing Cover?

I have the same leak. Im just buying everything and replacing everything gasket wise on that side when I pull the engine for my 5spd swap. Are the rear and front main seals the same?

Nope they're completely diff seals.

You better hope its not the rear main, cuz that requires either dropping the tranny, or pulling the motor.

He said he's replacing them when he's pulling the motor for a 5speed swap.
