Oil consumption issues & soon-to-go tranny
By honda4311 on


2002 Honda Accord SE 4dr Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 4A)


The cherry red accord has 120,000 miles on it and as of the fall of 2011, has been consuming 1/2 quart of oil per week.
It is evident the oil rings went bad as black oil deposits coat the inside of the tailpipe.
It's not blowing blue smoke, just consuming oil.
We are still on the original transmission, which is better than most people have faired, but the hesitation in shifting is evident.
When you slow down, you must come to a complete stop and wait a second for the car to shift into 1rst gear.
Oh, Honda, I lost a lot of respect for you & these engineering f*&k ups and you won't admit it.
I drive a 2003 Civic LX with roughly the same mileage.
It has been a gem.
No issues whatsoever.

Worst Features

Hire an new set of transmission and piston ring engineers.
