Hi guys,

Can someone help me please?

My wife has a 2.2 diesel Civic, bought in 07. Recently, it has been getting through a lot of oil. When I had a look under the bonnet, there was some oil on top of the engine, literally running on it.

She took it in to the local Honda dealership, who said there was nothing wrong with it other than it was using a lot of oil!

I'm no expert, but when a diesel uses oil, it tends to burn it rather than spray it out of the top of the engine :)

Does anyone have any idea what is going on with the engine? i.e. are the local garage trying to take the pi$$?

Thanks in advance,

Dave

Hi Paul,

Thanks for replying.

Yes, it is still under warranty. And since I'm not mechanically minded, I'm not sure where the oil is coming from - however, it is literally sitting on top of the cover that sits directly on the engine block.

I'll take the car back to the Honda dealership and have a chat with them.............

Cheers

Dave
