Default 90 Honda Accord - Leaking Oil out of side of engine like mad

Hey everyone.

Today my sister moved my car and while she was doing it, the car suddenly
started leaking oil out of the right side (if you are looking at the
engine from the front of the car). It leaks very quickly where it actually
leaves a trail when moving the car. A couple months ago I changed the oil
and found that the spark plugs were covered in oil. I didn't know if
Hondas are like that, or if it could be something serious. Could these be
related? Also, what could be causing the leak right now?

Thanks.

Wes

Sounds like the balance shaft seals have popped out. have the car towed to
the garage and have them replaced. The oil on spark plugs is probably from
leaking valve cover seals. Yes these are all common problems with this
generation accord.

Well actually i found the main problem now. Oil is pouring out of the lower
seal(im not good with cars - but its the spot where the wheel turns with
the belt on it, on the lower right.)

will this be an expensive job to fix?

thanx for the posts

Not sure what seal you're making reference to, but if it ends up being a
crankshaft seal, then its gonna cost some money...mostly due to the
labor. The actual seal is less than $5.
