I have a 12 ex 1.8L. I notice today while checking my brake fluid. Under air box near trans dip stick. There is oil pooled up. I took picture. It will be attached. Its oil not trans oil. I cleaned area and will check tomorrow after work. What could it possibly be?

Thanks

Did you check your brake fluid just cause or cause you've been noticing it was low? Could that pool possibly be brake fluid?

Not brake fluid. I cleaned area off with brakeClean And oil comes back. I guess my next day off ill pull airfilter box off and see where oil is coming from.

I took airfilter box up and I can't find oil leak. I see oil but its pooled up. I cleaned all the area. Maybe oil is all over engine from spill. Where would the main rear seal leak. I am used to chevy v8 not civic. Is there inspection plate on driver side that maybe jacket went bad ?

If the rear main seal was leaking, there's no way it would make it to the top of the trans.

Well I found a gasket it might be. Just got to figure out how to replace it. I think its called camshaft thrust o-ring. On driver side.
