2001 Honda Accord Engine with spark plugs removed.

Well it’s true over the course of time most vehicles have issues that arise. Whether it be suspension problems,engine problems, or transmission problems time usually tells all. For 20 years I worked as a factory trained Honda automotive technician. I stayed with that product line because 

of their long term reliability. The 2001 Honda Accord you see here has suddenly developed a big appetite for engine oil. If you own one of these cars and are experiencing a similar problem I have something that you can try. With this particular car cylinder #3 had a compression test that showed only 135 psi. The remaining cylinders had close to 185 psi that would show strong compression. What I did in this situation was remove all four spark plugs and pour in each cylinder a product called “sea foam.” I let the product soak over night and the following morning I performed another compression test. Guess what? The #3 cylinder that was weak had the compression return to 180 psi! This can work on any engine with an oil consumption,or compression loss issues. It’s worth a shot if your engine starts to lose engine compression or starts to use more oil than usual. Make sure that after the treatment you change your cars engine oil and filter. I hope this helps you! Thanks for reading.

    So how much burning oil is normal, and when does it become excessive? And what if it s a relatively new engine, such as one with fewer than 25,000 miles on it?

    It is said that if you burn a Quart of oil in 1000 miles or under that can be considered excessive. If you change your engine oil let’s say every 5000 miles and around 2500 miles you check your oil it is a quart low that can be considered normal.You should obviously top off your oil as needed. On a newer engine sometimes it takes a little bit longer for the piston rings to seat.It is important to follow the auto manufacturers break in periods on any new engine.This will ensure that the vehicle is properly worn in. Thanks for the question and I hope this helps you
