    So I'm looking to trade in my 2009 Honda Accord EX. I've only had her a year, but the oil consumption issue is just too big for me to ignore. I wanted to get feedback from the community on this. It's too bad as I paid cash for the car so I'm gonna lose on this one. For me the problem isn't...
  2. Wheels, Suspension & Brakes
    Hey guys. I've got an 2009 with 161k on the clock. I'm just trying to get rid of the floating feeling when I drive...anything over 80mph feels super dangerous to drive. The shocks seem fine, although the suspension bushings are starting to crack. Would that do anything to handling feel? I really...
  3. Problems & Solutions
    Please pardon any obvious repeat discussion. I've attempted a search with no luck. Long story, short. I bought a 2009 Accord EX 2.4 with 162k miles on it from a Toyota dealer in early March. The dealer changed the oil prior to my purchase. Two days after buying the car, I had my local Honda...

    Before someone gets upset that I created a new thread for this, I am not asking how to do it or where to buy the parts, as I know how to use the search function. I am simply looking for opinions from the 8.5 gen guys. I have noticed that a lot of people say they hate the VCM and deleting it...

    Hello All, I'm looking to join the Accord family. I'm looking at picking up a well cared for Accord with 90k on the clock. Not too long ago, the seller went through the process of having the piston rings replaced due to excessive oil consumption. I was wondering if the fix is fairly effective...

    Hello, First time poster. I bought a 2003 2.4L accord a year ago. It has been consuming about a quart of oil most of that time every 500 miles. Brought it in today to the dealer. Said the timing chain jumped two teeth. They said that was probably the source of the oil consumption. Meanwhile...

    So i've been burning a quart every 1500 miles and i did the oil consumption test with my dealer. I brought it in the for 1k check, it burned half a quart and my dealer decided to replace my Pistons under Hondas Extended Warranty for the oil consumption issue,which is up to 125K or 8 years, my...

    My car appears to consume more oil than I would consider normal. It appears to me every 3k miles, it loses about 1/4 quart. That is very poor for normal oil consumption on new cars. Below is the problem until Honda couldn't deny further with earlier gen. Excessive Oil Consumption in Honda...

    I was just wondering if any here were one of the unlucky ones that had the V6 VCM misfire, oil consumption problem and needed the full remedy at say 80k miles i.e. (short block, pistons,rings, plugs, etc.) is it a permanent fix, or will the problem reoccur in another 50k miles or so? Anyone...

    I had the oil consumption issue on my 09 accord, 2.4L engine. Honda dealer replaced the pistons, rings, and VTC actuator. It now has a knocking noise at cold start up. Anyone else have the pistons/rings replaced? How does your engine sound during cold starts?

    My 08 I4 Accord currently has 105K and replaced the PCV valve for the first time no where on the manual it says to replace it, found the pcv valve to be dirty with gunk/crud building, i also added half a quart of oil at 1954mi hopefully the new PCV valve stops the oil consumption, has any one...

    I have a 2007 4CYL Accord with 273k miles. It consumes some oil (no visible leaks, no smoke, plugs look clean, runs fine). I was always curious to know if "High Mileage" oils would really reduce oil consumption so I tried an experiment. I had "Mobil Super" 5W-20 conventional oil and was...

    So I've been suspicious for the last few months and I've been wondering why I have less oil at the end of an oil change. I kept on thinking oh maybe I didn't fill it up all the way, maybe this, maybe that... So I made sure that my last oil change, I kept track of how much oil I put in, made sure...

    About 12-14 mos ago a local (well-known) Honda mechanic/shop did major repair. Replaced timing chain/guide/tensioner/etc as it had jumped 3 teeth thanks the well known oil consumption problem that Honda still fails to acknowledge. The shop also claimed the alternator was bad and replaced it as...

    So i've been checking my dipstick every 500 miles and seems to be low, My dealership did a software update but it didn't help the oil consumption at all. I am currently at 96K and obviously out of warranty what causes the oil consumption and how can i fix it ? at 91K i replaced the VTC Actuator...
