Honfa acord blowing oil out tailpipe


It sounds like you might have a blown head gasket, bad valve seals, worn/broken rings, or a bad PCV valve/filter. Remove the oil filler cap and check how much air comes out. If a lot of air is coming out of the oil filler hole, you might have bad rings. The PCV valve helps to take the crankcase gasses (blowby from the rings) and run them through the combustion system to burn them. The most likely cause is a blown head gasket. The high pressure oil is leaking through the head gasket directly into one of the engine cylinders. Check each of the spark plugs to see if one of them is much dirtier than the others. A bad intake valve seal could also do the same thing, although probably not as bad.

Air pressure coming from oil filler neck


Could be any one of a number of problems but first i would check the engine breather which will be a tube from the rocker cover to the air intake as in this tube could be a gauze wire filter and this might need cleaning but iam not familar with this engine so i honestly couldnt tell you where to look for the breather or even what it looks like on this engine which iam assuming is a indian built engine .

OIL LIGHT CAME ON AND STAYS ON BUT OIL LEVEL IS CORRECT


it maybe that the oil pressure sensor is defective and needs to be replaced, or there is a short circuit on the sensor circuit. try removing the cable from the sensor to see if the situation changes.
check your oil quality, if the oil system is being contaminated with leaking fuel or coolant it will show a good level but the pressure will still be low.
remove the dipstick when the engine is cold of the oil is very running and smelling of fuel it maybe that there is a leak at your fuel pump into the engine.
remove the oil filler cover and see if there is white emulsion in the cover in around the filler hole this indicates antifreeze mixing with the oil. either through engine damage or cylendar head gasket leak.
I hope this was useful

Where do I check my transmisson fluid?


Fluid Level Checking Procedure for all Transmissions without a Dipstick:

  1. The transmission temperature must be between 30°C and 50°C before checking can begin. Use the DIS or the MODIC to determine the transmission temperature.
  2. The vehicle must be level and without load. With the engine running, switch on the air conditioning. This will increase the idle speed and ensure that all oil passages in the transmission are filled with oil.
  3. Step on the brake firmly, apply parking brake fully and move the selector lever through each gear position, pausing briefly in each gear.
  4. With the engine running and the selector lever in Park position, remove the filler plug located on the transmission (see picture for location). If a small stream of oil runs out, the fluid level is correct.
  5. If no oil runs out when the filler plug is removed, the fluid level is too low. Add oil until it starts to overflow.
  6. With the engine running, reinstall the oil filler plug and tighten to proper torque. (Refer to section below for proper tightening torque)
#1 is the drain and #2 is the filler

Is it just open drain plug and refill or is there aproblem of air pockets the tranny is 4x4 with transfer box in same housing


there is no need to blead air from the gearbox or transfer, or diff's
first the transfer and gearbox are together but use their own oils and are changed seperatly
remove the drain plug to drain, refit then refill through the filler flug, the correct level is thesame as the filler so when starts draining from the filler hole its full. car needs to be level/flat ground when doing this.
if its auto there will be a tube for checking the level, at the back of the engine under the bonnet. auto trans oil does need the engine running to check for correct level.
remove drain plug with the engine off, refill approx same amount of oil in to the dipstick tube, then start the engine, select each gear for a couple of secconds then back to neutral, check level with engine still running. adjust level if needed.

What this means is your engine has alot of what they call blow by which means alot of crankcase pressure about all you can do is you can try like engine restore as a cheap attempt to help reduce some blow by or rebuild/replace engine if you try the restore change oil and leave it about 1/4 to 1/2 quart low on oil and add your can of restore if that works you have to do it at every oil change.Restore helps rebuild compression by filling in minor scratches in the cylinders and gives the rings a better seal in the cylinders.It usually takes 300-500 miles to make a noticeable difference if you dont notice it by then rebuild/replace engine..

Engine miss 98 sunfire with codeP031


Not sure where you got that code but it almost sounds like you burnt a valve. Start up the engine and remove the oil cap and see if there alot if internal blow by pressure. If there is lot's of air coming out of the filler hole your have ether 1 piston ring bad, 2 burn a hole in the valve or and bent valve stem. Good luck sorry i dont have any more information on how your car is running.
