Oil leak

So I've had my lude for about six months now and ever since I got it it has had a slight oil leak due to a hairline fracture in the oil pan. It hasn't really been a problem until a couple days ago I accidentally ran the oil too low and my engine sounded like a weed wacker so I got home quick and checked the oil immediately and turns out the dipstick was almost dry. So I filled it up and everything was fine till I noticed the leak and this time it was bad. When the car is off it's fine but when I turn it on and it gets warm, there is a steady stream of oil dripping from I can't tell where.. Here's a pic:


So can anyone diagnose this leak and tell me what I effed up by being a retard and letting my oil get so low?
Thanks in advance!

Re: Oil leak

Possibly the oil pressure sending unit other than that I would say check the head

Re: Oil leak

Looks like its your oil cooler o-ring if it's leaking that bad while the motor is under pressure (running). But it also wouldn't hurt to check the back of the head and make sure nothing is running down from there.

I also wouldn't suggest jacking up your car in the front their either. Use the posts on the sides.

Re: Oil leak

I don't see anything coming from the back of the head luckily but it does look like it is coming from above the filter. Goin to Honda today to get the o-ring, thanks for the advice!

Re: Oil leak

Better check the oil tank or its head.
