Hi a month or so ago I picked up a used accord from a lady my father worked with.. and for the price I couldnt find anything running usually, and everything works great, passes inspection, and runs/ drives decent.. needs some work but about a grand worth and it should be perfect, but is driveable as is.. anyways.. it needs a valve cover gasket so it leaks oil.. not much so I decided to check the oil as she said it was changed 3 days before I bought it and there are no level marks on the dipstick.. just 2 holes way down on the stick.. which im assuming are full and low.. but I wipe the dipstick off and insert it and the oil level is like 2-3 inches above the top hole. which makes me wonder if its overfilled or ?? I wish someone knew how honda does it as this is my first foreign car ever.. other than that it I have no complaints, after tires, cv joints, and a general tune and fluid change, and the leaky gasket it should be a great car.. runs like a swiss watch.. but bogs when you get on it hard.. so I think it may need a tune eventually, uses no oil or shows no signs of being overfilled?
Ha! that's a good question, as you know, I don't know much about foreign either. Have you checked out any forums about hondas?
How's your oil level now?
Checking oil is an important part of maintaining a vehicle. The best time to check your oil is when the car has not been running for at least 5 -10 minutes and its very bad to overfill your engine with oil. its better to be a little low than it is to be over full.
well hopefully it is just over filled, 2 two three inches is insane, Does it all look nice and clean? A cracked head or maybe a leaking fuel sytem can fill your crank case with fuel or antifreeze, smell it does it smell like gas ? or Antifreeze ? Either way you need drain it NOW DONOT DRVE IT, you can destroy the engine.
