Engine Oil Leaking problem #3
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. This engine oil leaking problem happened on Feb. 12, 2006.
