    If that pic was show 'up from the bottom' it doesn't indicate that the bolt is leaking. It MAY be leaking from above...



    EDIT: When you changed the valve cover gasket, did you apply oil-resistant RTV at the 'corners' of the gasket as specified? If not (or if it wasn't cleaned properly) the leak could be coming from there.
    Yes, I applied oil resistant RTV and checked all the corners of the valve cover several times to make sure is not coming from there. I also removed the exhaust manifold heatshield to have a better view. As you said is pretty dificult area to take pictures and diagnose. I even dream of trying to solve this leak.

    I will give this another shot of break cleaner as 20CRVEX13 said.

    So I checked the leaking area after my girlfriend got home from work and sadly and I found drops of oil in the VTEC solenoid Cover and the oil sender was dry. I can't see a trace of oil coming from above or from the solenoid gasket meets the engine. Is it possible for the VTEC solenoid to leak through the body or bolts? Did I overtorqued the bolts? I tried to take some pictures, hope you can see what I mean, this is driving me crazy. Thank you.Name:  vtec solenoid leak 1.jpg

    2011 CRV Oil leak

    mmeyer77 I see oil dripping somewhere in the back passenger side bottom of the engine and though I cannot see the area you pictured I thinks it’s the same or similar issue.

    What was your result or resolution on this?
