car   Engine Oil Leaking problem 1
Failure Date: 02/12/2006

I have taken my 1998 Honda Accord lx to the dealership to have my oil changed. (my check engine light was on) I was told by the dealer that my engine was leaking oil, oil had leaked through out the cars entire system so they flushed out as much oil as they could. I was skeptical so I went to get a 2nd and third opinion and it was the same consensus- I needed a new engine. My vehicle has 134,000 miles. For a used engine it will cost about 3,000 for a new engine 5,000. 00 . I was told to that I either had to replace the engine or purchase a new car. Since the system was drained, the car has leaked oil again this time the oil was all over the drive way and it is almost April.
