2009 Honda Accord Oil Leak.
- Hello Scotty! (or whoever reads this) I have a 2009 Honda accord, it is the EX-L V6 model. (3.5L) I had noticed some oil around the dipstick and realized there was a leak going on. Looks to be seeping right out of the dipstick tube! I replaced the PCV Valve hopeing maybe it was being overpressurized. Still a small amount of oil leaking from the area but seems to be better than before. No engine error codes or anything, seems to run great for 100000 miles. Should I be worried?

Use this technique to positively identify the source of the leak -

Not unless you’re losing alarming quantities of oil or if the leak is dripping oil onto the ground.
Get a new dipstick with a new seal. Replacing the PCV valve probably solved the over pressurized crankcase problem. I always clean or replace the PCV valve with each oil/filter change, just for quality. It's only a few bucks more.
Thanks everyone! Unfortunately i dont have the equipment to find the exact spot at the moment but I will check soon! And I will also get a new dipstick
before i replaced the PCV there was only a few drops on the ground, waiting overnight to check again in the morning
