oil leak on 1997 Honda Accord

how to repair 1997 2.7 v6 oil stand gasket

Asked by for the 1997 Honda Accord
You may have to take the oil filter off to see, but there are probably 3 or 4 bolts holding it to the block. You need to be scrupulously clean about regasketing it, and use a thin sealer (not silicone) if there's a paper gasket, and no sealer if there's a rubber O-ring.
I'm not very familiar with your engine specifically, I'm just giving you good advice about oil filter adapter resealing.
