Default 1995 Accord 2.2 BAD oil leak

Hello everyone! I'm new to Hondas and I did a search and was unable to find my problem, so thank you for the help in advance.

I just bought a 95 Accord Ex w a 2.2/auto and 147k miles. I did a tranny fluid change(cable adjustment too to fix the lockup converter that i located on tjis forum)and an oil change. Now it used to drip here and there and now it leaks bad! I thought it was leaking at the filter(it runs down the filter n drips on the exhaust n runs down the side of the bock) as it drips while running and will leave a puddle, so I bought a different brand(Fram the one that was on it) and it still is there. I removed the filter n can't tell where it's coming from, I looked by the distributor n can't see any fresh oil by there or around it. Too, no oil in the coolant or vise verse. Any ideas?

Thanks again,

Chris

Oil pressure switch. Above the oil filter, single wire connector.

EDIT: Sorry one more since it is an EX. Check around the vtec solenoid-right/pass side, rear of head. There are two o-rings, one for the upper part. The other where it connects to the head.

maybe you double gasketed the filter might wanna double check that (i know you said you swapped the filters but just a suggestion), maybe the back of the valve cover gasket i had a 91 that leaked pretty bad there. if you could post a pic it would help. (or what he said too haha beat me too it ^^^)

Thank you Poorman212 and h22cb, I will start with the oil pressure switch. I saw the wire running to it, couldn't see the switch. It would make sense as that is right above the oil filter.What is the best way to reach it? Special tools or known socket size? Teflon tape, and Autozone or whoever? There was oil all over that wire too FYI.

Thanks again!!

h22cb7, Thanks for that suggestion, I did look look for that and cleaned the area with brake clean with the filter off to make sure the aluminum wasn't cracked or anything, no double gasket.

The oil pressure switch is quite common place to leak. You can remove the oil filter to see it better and as others have posted check to make sure there is not an oil filter gasket stuck to the block. No special tools need, just a good set of sockets, and no Teflon tape. The switch has tapered treads and will not over tighten. I bought mine at Autozone for like $10.

Thanks everyone!!! That was the problem, oil pressure switch. It was a pita to remove as the boot around it became a permanent member and was subsequently destroyed. The other issue was finding the right socket size. Factory switch is 24mm, the aftermarket switch, well I got a six point 1 1/16 to work. Anyway, thanks again!!
