Hope that helps you feel safer about trusting the advice.
I see your leak everyday. Its the oil pump behind the timing belt pulley.
It is silicone sealer (Hondabond) and a single o-ring.
It leaks onto the oil pan gasket making it appear as if the seal were leaking.
I believe its 5 10mm bolts holding the pump face on. you also need to unbolt the oil sump. obviously this all happens after you remove the t-belt, pulley, and oil pan. Replace the oil seal (small o-ring) and get a tube of fresh H-bond. you'll see the areas that need the silicone when you remove the oil pump face. Get all the old silicone off.
Make sure you get all the bolts out before you pry on it or you'll break it.
Thanks for the advice, I wish I had this info a couple weeks ago. I sold the car last week, I was spending too much time working on the car. I dropped the oil pan twice on the car looking for the leak, it would have been an easy fix had I known the problem. Thanks again. By the way I stuck with Honda and bought a 2012 Civic Ex-L, hopefully I won't have any issues with it for awhile.
