    I found a 2007 6-6 accord for $3,000. Everything worked well, was provided paper work for clutch, timing belt and brakes and I didn't see any problems. After getting in inspected, one oil leak was found. I do not believe it is the rear main seal because it is not that large but it could be the...

    08 Accord with 175k leaking oil at base of front (passenger side) spool valve/vtec solenoid. There is no gasket between where the base rests on the engine. I used a bead of permatex ultra grey and reassembled with proper torque settings. I’ve done this twice now and It’s still leaking. Please...

    Hi guys, I have an oil leak & need help figuring out which gasket I need to replace. Not too familiar with a lot of these gaskets. Every time I do a cold start, oil leaks from around the dipstick area above the alternator and oil is dripping slowly into the alternator. I’m afraid if I don’t...

    So i do a monthly inspection and i see this: I think "no biggie, i've got that warranty with the dealer". And as you probably already suspected: it's not covered. I've been in there three times with issues and none of them were covered. I wonder what even is covered with this warranty the...

    Recently, I noticed an oil spill on the left side of the engine (direction: front; looking at the engine). I also took some pictures of the oil leak. It's definitely not engine oil. I think this is coming from the power steering. Besides, I see some leakage from the PCV valve as well, which was...

    Hello all, I need your help please. I have a 2005 Honda Accord V6 EX, with 188,000 miles. I am the first owner. The car runs well, but I don't want to junk it just because of an oil leak. Lately I replaced the rack and pinion with a remanufactured CarDone brand, only to leak again in less than 2...

    I think I've find my Oil Leak issue. The black O-ring is pretty hard and flat but not cracked, is this causing the oil leak? Also, I changed plugs and 1 coil and a ton of oil was in the 2 cylinder. Oil dripping when the coil was pulled. I think it was an older issue with plug seals before I...

    Hi, I've still got an Oil leak coming from some where. If the TC is leaking, can the oil run down between the heads and out the drivers side like in the pic? I've already changed the VC's 2 months ago as well as the Spooler gasket. Any help much appreciated...

    I have an oil leak at the base of the dip stick where it meets the engine block which you can see on included picture. I have had attempts, some by a mechanic I will not longer be taking my car to, which tried to alleviate the problem with resealing the Valve Cover to no avail (going on four...

    Our Honda Accord 2000 is in great shape (140,000 miles, well maintained). All of the sudden after a drive, noticed oil on underside of the car. It's coming from multiple places from the pan about 1 foot in front of the rear tires. Continuing to leak from a couple of drip places with car off. See...

    Currently waiting to have my 16 Accord Sport towed by Honda Roadside. Oil is all over the underneath of my car and the back. Getting off the highway I had though that the car was sounding a little funny. Nothing that was alarming though. I drove another mile and a half and which point I hit a...

    Hi everyone, Car: 2000 Accord LX 2.3 MT Issue 1: Oil Leak Vtec Solenoid (yes, Im 100% sure). Issue 2: I'm too lazy. I mostly drive my car very economically and don't ever rev it past 3000 rpm. So my question is, if I don't use Vtec (by not revving high), does the engine oil still flow...

    I just replaced all gaskets, including the o-rings under the rocker assembly, but I am still getting an oil leak outside of the valve cover and near the intake side of the number one spark plug and (see below). Any ideas?

    hi everyone, so i have had a valve cover leak for 5 years (timing belt changed 6 years/45x miles ago) and i ignored it until recently. just to check i also removed the upper timing belt cover and this is what I found. Is this anything to worry about? The timing belt itself is completely dry...

    Bought my 2006 Accord SE (95,000) four months ago and stop by a Honda dealer today to change oil. They did a free check and gave me a long list of things to fix. The most urgent ones are the rear brake pads, which I can change by myself and "FRONT COVER RESEAL", under "Engine oil and/or other...

    Hi, everyone, I am having a starting issue with my 2001 Honda Accord 4-cylinder. This morning when I tried to start my car, it won't start and I get a single click from the hood and then silence. I tried to start it a couple of times and after about 6-7 tries, it started normally. After about...

    We just bought a 2004 Accord for our son to drive and discovorred after getting it home that it is leaking oil - generally 3-4 good sized drops on the driveway after driving any distance. I haven't been under the car, yet, but the amount that is leaking leads me to believe it will be hard to...
