Question about 1999 Honda Accord
My honda accord has an engine leakage when the car stop the oil is dripping and i will like to know whrer i can find the part to scan the car
You can picck up a scan tool at most auto parts store these days. Keep in mind the scan tool will not detect leaks or thier location and is for electrical and sensor diagnostics only. For the oil leak problemi t will take some visual effort to locate the source. Possible leakage points are front crank seal,valve cover seal, pan seal and rear main seal If it is a cosistant leak, you can park it with the engine runing and let the drips fink on themselves as to where yhey are coming from. If it is dripping in several areas the chances are it is collecting then dripping. It would help to have the engine cleaned of any excess exterior oil. It will help detect new oil from the leakag. A faulty pcv valve will also cause leaks. Change it first and see if that helps. If a pcv valve doesn't work right it allows pressure to build up inside the engine and forces oil through any weak seals or gaskets. Good Luck

The cheapest and most effective way of 'scanning' as you say, the car, is to:
Take it to the local jet-wash, and leave it running, pop the hood and clean her up.
Take her back home, open the hood, and liberally dry down the engine.
Right, now you can examine the patient, er I mean problem.
Check for any oil stains, or patches.
These are sure clues that there is leakage.
If neccesary, start the engine, (In neutral!)
and see if anything un-toward occurs.
(Obviously,make sure that there is oil in the engine, before doing all this.)
Good luck with that.
