The most common cause of massive oil leaks on this car is a failure of the front balancer shaft seal. You will need to replaced the timing belts and the seals under the timing cover

I need instructions on how to do this. Can you please email them to me?
Mechanic for Honda: John G., Honda Technician replied 8 years ago

Ok, I will. Have you done a timing belt before?

This engine also has an extra belt for the balancer shafts.

Mechanic for Honda: John G., Honda Technician replied 8 years ago

If it is the water pump, why is oil leaking out as fast as I put it in?
Mechanic for Honda: John G., Honda Technician replied 8 years ago

The front balancer shaft seal has popped out. look at the image of the front shaft. You take that pulley off and remove the old seal. Then install a new one.

Most people replace the water pump as long as the timing belts are off, but if ours isnt that old you can leave it alone

So if I do all of this, will the oil stop coming out.?
Mechanic for Honda: John G., Honda Technician replied 8 years ago

When you remove the timing cover you will see that the seals for the front balancer is no longer in the block, it has popped out and is spinning around with the front balacer shaft.

There is a huge opening where the seal should be and oil comes out rapidly.

The timing belt should be replaced because the oil will cause it to break before it should

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.
