Great Vehicle But Now Uses Some Oil
By davewdmia on
2001 Honda Civic DX 2dr Coupe (1.7L 4cyl 4A)
The only complaint I have now is that my vehicle now has 130K miles on it, and I have to add about 2 tenths of a quart of oil to it every 2 weeks or so. It never used to use any oil, and does not appear to be leaking any oil onto the driveway, so I am unsure where it is leaking, or if it is using oil. No apparent leakage from the valve cover gasket either. If a reader knows about oil leaks with this vehicle, please respond to my ad. Otherwise, this has been the most dependable vehicle I have owned, with little maintenance.
Favorite Features
My Honda Civic was a great buy with 51K miles on it for $6750. I had to add cruise control for another $450. Great winter handling and good acceleration. Much better acceleration than the Toyota Corolla, but not quite as good of gas mileage as the Corolla. I owned a 1988 Corolla with 212K miles on it that finally gave out.
Suggested Improvements
Front end makes some popping noises when I hit bumps, but recently replaced some parts on the front end.

Increase the viscosity of the oil from 5w30 to 10w30 and oil consumption may go down for you. If not then up to 10w40 but no heavier.
