First off, let me start by saying that Integras come equipped with three different motors, the B18B1 (RS, LS, SE, GS), B18C1 (GSR), and the B18C5 (Type R). When changing the cam seal on these motors, the B18C1 and B18C5 are a tad bit different from the B18B1. Click here for more information on these motors or how to find out what motor you have!
The OEM Honda cam seals are absolute crap in my opinion, majority of all Integras that have the OEM cam seals are bound to leak oil. If your symptoms match the ones below, the cam seal could be the one to blame for the oil leak. Follow this guide on how to replace Integra cam seal plug.
Even if you aren’t leaking oil, you can still always change the cam seal just to dress up your engine bay. They make cam seals in a variety of different colors for your taste.
