92 prelude si h23 front main won't stop leaking.

I have a 92 prelude si h23 that was pouring oil out of the front main seal. Had a qualified technician replace front main seal as well as cam seals timing belt and pan gasket . Did fine for about two weeks then started pouring oil again. Took it back to the technician and had him put another high quality front main seal as well as check the crank for burs and play. all seemed to be fine for about two weeks till oil started pouring out from under the crank pully again!!!! Any info on this problem would be greatly appreciated.

Re: 92 prelude si h23 front main won't stop leaking.

Try replacing the PVC valve. It could be building up too much crank pressure and blowing a weak link.. (front seal)
If this is the case, u can at least be happy it wasnt the rear main like in most cases.
If that does not do the trick, remove the front seal and see if there are any where marks in the crankshaft where the seal actually seals, believe it or not, that seal will wear a grove in the crank or harmonic balancer in other types of engine and it'll leak past, even with a new seal.
