    Oil leak

    There’s a oil leak seen in the picture below the vtec solenoid circled. I thought it was the gasket and then I took apart and reseal it with black RTV oil resistance due money issue. If that’s the case I will buy the gasket. Then I rechecked it at 2k miles, it leaks again. I wonder what those Allen key port and other bolt are. It seemed like it’s leaking out of there, should I take it out and reseal it? Any input would be helpful. TIA!

    That is the oil pump. The 2 allen key things you see are right below the oil pressure switch and is part of the oil pump's oil channels. The allen screws are the seal cap screws. I just did a complete reseal job on my Accord V6, with the identical oil pump. There might not be enough liquid gasket from the factory on the pump mated to the block or your oil pressure switch is leaking, or the pump is leaking from the double o-ring for the 2 oil ports. This is a common oil leak on the J-series engine. It's not just an average job to tackle, it took me many days to complete it. You should try high mileage oil first and see if you can get the double o-ring to swell and reseal itself.
