Question about 1992 Honda Accord

1 Answer

1992 Accord: oil level gradually reduces to nothing as car is driven. With engine off, oil returns to pan (dip stick reading), as though oil is not draining back into oilpan correctly. Plugged drain lines? Are they accessible?

Oil level on mark when engine is cold, way high when running

Are you pulling the dip stick out with the engine running to check the oil level? You are only suppose the check the level when the engine is off. Oil level is high and in accurate while engine is running due to the oil pump pumping oil around the engine. :p

Too much oil in car

You may siphon the excess oil by the engine dip stick tube after you have removed the oil dip stick,using a small plastic hose long enough to reach the oil pan and attached to an empty plastic bottle to which you have drilled a hole on the cap and sealed the hose with any material like chewing gum to prevent leakage, compress the bottle to empty the air and allow the suction to remove the excess oil . Check the oil level with the oil dip stick and continue the operation until you have reached the desired oil level. This will prevent you from removing the excess engine oil by the oil pan drain plug.

Good luck with this project.......I done this before and it works.

How can you tell if oil has been over filled

check the dip stick and if the level is indicated over the high (full) mark then there is too much oil in the sump. If the oil is white or grey then you have water in the oil and the engine needs attention

How to do a oil change

Pull the drain plug, change the oil filter, replace the drain plug. Add oil until the dipstick reads full. Start the engine and make sure the oil light goes out. Check for leaks around the oil filter with the car running. Recheck the oil level, add as necessary. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using!

To check engine oil level engine needs to be off, if check while engine running, oil will splash inside oil pan and all over your dip stick giving you bad reading, Check oil level with engine off and add to full mark on oil dip stick. Running engine with low oil will cause major damage to your engine. To check transmission level engine needs to be running at normal engine temp.

I have a problem reading the oil dip stick for my 03 rodeo

the lower circle is the minimum level for the oil in your pan, so you should add oil. when was yor last oil change maybe you are due, always let the engine sit for a few minutes before chwcking your oil al it takes time for all the oil to drain back into the pan
