Default 1993 Honda Accord LX oil leak?

I have a 1993 Honda Accord LX with a 4 cylinder, automatic transmission, and and oil leak. I've cleaned the engine off and just can't figure out where it's coming from once it starts leaking again. Is there some common problem or place that the motor leaks oil after some hight mileage?

depends on where you see the oil. on the top of the engine is the valve cover. A leak from the gasket for that cover is the most common leak. the valve cover gasket is usually changed when the valves are adjusted which should be every 15,000 miles on that car. if you haven't had the valves adjusted in a while you'll probably find that gasket is leaking.the second most common leak is the distributor o-ring that seals the distributor to the end of the cylinder head. that oil will run down the side of the engine as opposed to the front or the back.if the oil is dripping under the car from between the engine and transmission its usually a rear main engine oil seal. if it is, its more expensive to replace that than the car is worth.oil pan gaskets will also leak and you will only see the oil under the car, not on the engine when looking from above.the last thing that is a common leak is the washer on the drain bolt for the oil pan or the bolt for the drain pan itself. again, as with the oil pan you would only see this under the car.hope that helps
