    B16 oil leak need help!

    b16a looks like theres oil comming out through the head gasket, so i changed the head gasket and got the head milled no change, its comming out right on top of the gasket by the engines badge on the passanger side right in front. Anyone have any suggestions on someting else i can do?

    i dont know the name but you can go to the honda dealer to get it its like $6 you can explain it to them the yave pictures just say its alittle gasket located inside the hrad towards the vtec sylinoid. they should hav an idea whats your talking about there not any gaskets that look like it. i have never donbe it before my cousin did it and told me that gasket goes bad easy he changed it on acouple of cars. i wam going to change the gasket next week i will post the name when i get it and the part number

    it could be the valve cover gasket when you tighten the valve cover you do it by oppsites like tighten the bottem left then the top right then the top middle then the bottem middle

    the way my leak looks like its coming from right under the vtec sylinoid

    Are talking about the gasket for the vtec solenoid with the little screen? cuz i changed both vtec gaskets and the seal for the exhaust cam on the left side but nothing helped. I even changed the head gasket.
