Unhappy The Guess where my oil is leaking from game!!! *pic*

so yeah its coming from somwhere, and when i drive it flys back on my exaust and smokes like a banshee. My oil filter WAS loose, like 1/2 a turn and i thought that was it, but it keeps leaking
and it allways beads up in those two spots after its sits for the night

My '97 Legacy (2.5l DOHC) leaked from the oil pump gasket, causing this, it looks kinda like yours:

Take care of this right away. A timing belt contaminated with oil will not last very long.

What can you do to fix it? Replace the seals . If you can turn nuts/bolts, you can do it yourself. Pull your timing covers off, and you'll see the beast you are up against. The parts are fairly cheap- the cost of the repair is labor time.

It's likely the crank seal, and if not that, the oil pump to engine block seal. They are both very easy to replace once you have the timing covers off, and they are both very cheap parts. No highly specialized tools necessary, and no need to dismantle the engine to get at them . You'll need an 806733030 and an 10991AA000 or 806919050 (either will work, though the 806919050 is meant for your car and is about $0.50 more) to get the job done, and you might consider picking up some RTV and resealing the oil pump for good measure while you're in there.

***?, there was no comment about NOT having to remove the timing belt, just no need to disassemble the engine.

You need to pull ALL the belts, crank pulley, timing belt cover and timing belt.

The rest is easy.

Hondabond = Fujibond = RTV

You will need to remove the Tbelt to do this, yes.

that doesn't look like a crank seal, it looks like an oil pump leak. reseal the oil pump and replace the oil pump o-ring.

Just had this done. Oil pump seal/O-ring. Crank seal for good measure. New T-belt, for same said measure.

Stealer was to charge $800. Local guy did it for $375.

Um, the front crank seal goes through the center of the oil pump, and as for the rest

No real need to restate the solutions that he already has
