sooo... my oil pressure is messed up ...

so I got this 97 prelude 127000 miles on it (finally moving to a MT) its a base and the previous owner turboed it and put to much boost from what i can tell and now i leak oil everywhere. first it was the valve cover *fixed* then the oil pressure sensor with a T for a turbo (i assume) with no Teflon tape. so leaky leaky *fixed*. Now it leaks a lil less but when i pull the dipstick when running the whole stick is covered w oil. when i take her for a drive and nail it (getting the VTeC going) *TICK TICK TICK !!!!!* i assume the oil pressure is low and the back side of the engine is covered with oil. now i have the dealership repair book and besides the lines going to the filter idk where the oil is coming from. the top of the engine is clean. so my question to you is could the oil pressure sensor be bad or is it the oil pump(crossing my fingers its not LOTS of work) or a seal that could be leaking? i have ordered a UV kit for my oil to find the leak but with the erratic oil pressure im curious if i need to replace my pump but from what i have read they rarely go out there is also no light . could it be my oil jet? AHH!! help!!im going to try a lil seafoam in the morning. PS i have ordered a oil pressure gauge.

The Official Oil Leak Guide - Honda Prelude Forum : Honda Prelude Forums

this is what you need to take a look at...sounds like it could possibly be your oil cooler o-ring to me...that's what im replacing on mine right now and its the same as urs only it hasn't ever been turbo'd. Just look that over and see if you can determine where it is coming from on your car...this is the best thread about honda oil leaks...lol especially h22s. Hope that helps
