Honda Accord owners have reported 42 problems related to engine oil leaking (under the engine and engine cooling category).
I have the 2008 Honda Accord with the 4cyl engine and drive approximately 8 miles per day. Within the last few months I have noticed significant oil loss in between oil changes. Approximately 3-4 quarts needs to be added in between oil changes. There is not a leak to be found and I am not blowing smoke out of the tailpipe. Upon additional research, I've found that mulitple other owners of the exact same make and model vehicle are having this same issue. I've taken the vehicle to a local shop to have it looked at, but still don't have a resolve. Honda just recently lost a class action suit regarding the v6 models, but still won't admit to the issue with the 4cyl model. I have had estimates anywhere from $500 on up to a complete engine overhaul, which is far more than I can afford. Honda needs to take responsibility for this and fix the problem. I've owned many other Honda's and this is the first I've ever seen do something like this. Please help! thank you.

Hi. I've notice oil leak on my brand new 2013 Accord v6 this morning. I already made an appointment with the dealer, but I'm disappointed to see brand new car (especially Honda) with this type of problem. After researching this online, looks like more people are having similar issue. I hope this is nothing major and they don't have to replace an engine block like mentioned below. . Read more...

I purched 2013 Honda Accord on oct 2012. The car has only 3,000 miles on it. Recently my car has engine oil leaking from engin gasket seal. Honda has serious problem with engine oil leaking.
Driving on the highway, felt a slight hesitation and then check engine light came on. Immediately exited and when I came to a stop, the car was idling very rough. Did research and it's very evident that this is a known issue by Honda because several people have complained that cylinder #3 spark plug is so damaged that ceramic pieces are completely missing! I can't believe that there hasn't been a recall with so many incidents. I am being told that Honda will not cover this as my car is no longer under warranty! this should be a recall! there is also an issue with engine oil being low but yet there are no leaks. This too appears to be a known issue. I was told at my last oil change that my oil level was extremely low but yet there were no signs of any leaks. This too should be a recall!.
Honda Accord 2005 v6 under 25,000 miles suddenly started having problems with the automatic transmission which finally failed on may 2011 while driving on the highway. A complete automatic transmission overhaul and torque converter change were performed at a Honda dealer at a cost of over $2600. New transmission felt great during the first 3 months (even though it torque converter started leaking oil and I had to take it to the dealer for repair) but recently I have notice abrupt delays (slow down) while shifting gears, like its is pulling you back and strange kicks while shifting. Car accelerates slower as well and does not react as quickly or smoothly as new. I took the car to the same Honda dealer and they say nothing is wrong with the transmission.

Above start date and mileage are estimates as this seems to have always been an issue. The engine sputters when accelerating through the first few gears. This is noticable around the 20-35 mile per hour range, but may occur before or after that speed. It seems dangerous if acceleration is needed when the car will not respond. I have looked up Honda service bulletins and it seems there a re a few that "might" fit the issue. One is related to an oil "leak" another to oil "consumption" as well as one related to engine "low power". I believe the oil issue exists regardless as I am checking it now and discovered it is always low. There are a couple of others that may or may not apply as it is hard to determine the exact problem and service bulletin. The vehicle has been to the dealer for this issue only for the dealer to not be able to determine the cause or identify the problem while at the shop. Early on while under warranty the vehicle was brought back to the dealer for this issue and some spark plugs were replaced. If I remember correctly they said there was a problem with the spark plugs. The issue has always remained even after the replacement of some spark plugs. They may not have replaced all of them and thus the issue at hand? I will have to ask the dealer for a service history if they have it since I may not have all the records. The car wil go back again for this issue after writing this. I'm hoping for a positive outcome where it will not cost me a fortune as the car is now out of warranty but was brought in for this while it was covered.
The contact owns a 2008 Honda Accord. The contact stated that the vehicle was losing oil and only noticed that when the oil and check engine light came on. The vehicle was inspected by the dealer several times, but the dealer was unable to find the source of the leak. The dealer performed a diagnostic test and confirmed that the vehicle was losing two quarts of oil every 200 miles. The manufacturer stated that they would look into the problem, but did not offer any assistance. The failure mileage was 59,000 and the current mileage was 94872.
Just found out today from my mechanic during an oil change that oil was leaking into my antifreeze component. As a matter of fact, my oil chamber was near-empty and my antifreeze component was black and full of oil. He also said that he had seen other cases of this in this particular make and model where the engines had to be replaced.

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.

On August 19, 2003 the oil light on my car started flashing. I checked my oil and none was touching the oil stick. I called wade's Honda which is a service center in clinton, nc. Mr. Wade came out and checked my car at which time he found that there was a leak in my oil shaft. He told me that there was recall on this problem, but the campaign had ended. I advised him that I was never notified of any recall. Mr. Wade called american Honda and was told that I was notified by mail, but the notice came back as undeliverable. This notice was sent to my residence address (307 carlton street). I receive my mail at the above office box address. I have been living at this address for 25 plus years and have had the same mailing address since I moved here. I called american Honda myself and was told the same thing. My complaint I was told that it was documented that the notice was undeliverable; that is proof that I never received it. I feel that american Honda should reimburse me $139. 00 for that reason. I also checked the internet for other recalls and there was one in 1999 regarding vehicle speed control and another one in 1998 about the electrical system: wiring:front underhood that I never received or had knowledge of.
