Question about 1996 Honda Accord
Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. First, sorry about your luck. It sounds like you have had some bad luck my friend. Hope it gets better. Here is the thing, If the cap was missing, that is how the oil came out of course. I wasn't sure if that was the case. If so, it is hard telling what is damaged if it was running with or little oil. The Cam is probably damaged, but the entire engine may be damaged, at the least, some other things more then likely, You may have cracked a head also. It is really hard to tell without looking at it personally, but it is possible that the engine may be shot. All I can really say is let them fix it for free. But, don't be surprised if it is something else. I hate to say that, but I am just being honest. The oil is the blood of the engine. Without it, certain parts die. The best advice I can give you is keep all documentation. Seven years, you know if you can trust them or not. That may be all they need. But keep all paper work just in case. You would be surprised how a car can be rigged to drive a few miles just to get them out the door. It happens. Without taking the engine apart, you just can't know 100% what all is wrong. It could have warped the engine, valves, pistons, rods, ect. Remember, they caused it. Not you. If you get it back and it acts up, take it back asap. Hope your luck gets better. Best regards. Ricky
