Do you have good vacuum at the PCV valve? Remove your spark plugs and run a compression test. Sounds like you have a lot of blow by. Combustion gases blowing by the piston rings.

first thing check make sure oil pan drain plug tight. check make sure oil filter tight. try tighten oil filter by hand see if turn tighten oil filter clockwise direcction if all is good. how many miles on vechicle.could have oil leaks park vechicle in spot that clean.move vechicle see if you see oil spots on ground if yes.your front timing cover seal leaking oil or rear main oil seal ;eaking.or valve cover gaskets leaking.if find no oil leaks more likely engine burning oil.replace pcv valve.check air filter if you see oil in air filter housing either have bad pcv valve or pcv not getting vacuum make sure pcv valve getting vacuum when engine running vacuum should be felt at pcv if not pcv valve bad or pcv hose disconnected broken or plugged.if pcv valve okay engine has worn piston rings.worn valve seals or guides or oil return holes stopped up thats all possible reasons for engine burning oil.if spark plugs oil fouled engine burning oil.

Where is pcv valve located on 1989 honda accord lxi


Locate the air box on the top center of the engine towards the back. The PCV valve is located on the rear, underside of the air box. Although on some Accord models, a small air box bracket may be present, which will block view and access to the PCV valve plugged into the intake manifold. If by chance the bracket is there, then remove the retaining nuts, holding it to the air box side with the ratchet and a socket. Reach onto the intake manifold with a pair of needle nose pliers, and gently pull the PCV hose and valve out of the grommet of the intake manifold. Hope this helps!!!

Some engines have what they call a pcv valve, it takes gases from the crankcase and vents them into the air cleaner to be burnt on combustion. There may be a problem whith that.

Oil filter is tight and seated properly, drain plug is secure and no leakage- have had some oil smell while driving the past week or so- pulled into home and oil smoke pouring out of engine compartment and...


Check Front main seal, rear main seal, or one of the EGR hoses. Check oil fill cap. Also check filter if seal was crushed too hard it may be spraying oil out of it. Where is the largest amount of oil? May tell where its starting from.

Check engine light after every oil change 2005 Honda


This happens because the oil filter needs to be free of air. When the oil pressure sensor drops below a certain value it shuts off the injectors because the PCM. This is a good feature because if you run out of oil for any reason it should stop the engine before damage occurs.
