It sounds like you front main crankshaft seal is worn out and leaking, the job is quite involved and if you are going to tackle it buy a haynes repair manual and a flywheel puller if you are not mechanically skilled I would not recomend this job. If you are going to tackle the job replace the water pump and timing belt while your in there the oil will degrade the belt and failure will result within a year.

Oil capacity


This is something you can find capacities for in your manual. If I were to guess based on this being a 4 cyl. you will need 4 or 5 quarts.

Smoking on acceleration after overrun


Maybe a leak-down test on number 4 could find it. Cylinder wall wear, maybe?
At least you got a good head if you have to rebuild the engine, that is, if worse comes to worse.

You don't say what engine it has. The 4-cyl was a better than the V6 for oil leaks.

The V6 had oil leaks from

-rear bank cam cover gasket

-distributor o-ring seal

-oil filter bracket o-ring seal

-crankshaft nose oil seal (less common)

-rear main bearing oil seal (expensive, just leave it)

The 4 cyl leaked oil from

-distributor o-ring seal

-camshaft cover gasket

-rear main bearing seal (expensive, leave it)

My 95 Accord 4 cyl burns a lot of oil. Compression is good. Is the oil more likely coming through rings or valve guide seals?


It means that your piston rings are worn out or the compression chamber or sleeve is worn out..4 stroke engine has compression rings and another rings for oil only..So even though you have compression it does not mean that your oil ring is not worn out..

I have a 350 cu. inch chevy engine. I just did a compression test on all cylinders and found cylinders 1,2,7,8 have 140. while cylinder 3 has 135 cyl 5 has 130 cyl 4,6 has 125. there is no hesitation on...


Try shooting oil into 4 and 6, then retake compression test. If they come up you have worn rings, if not you could have a slight leak around the valves. or a slight leak in the head gasket between those two cylinders.
