I have just purchased 1988 Accord, it is giving me 4KM/L on petrol and 70K on 55KG Cylinder. Although I generally dont push full accelator. Also engine is leaking oil from tapit cover. Someone has sealed it with silicon kind of stuff instead of proper seal.
My car has automatic transmission and it gives jerk when gear shifts. In D4 car moves like an old man, in d3 i generally go up 60 with half padel and on full padel maximum go around 80. In d2 I can go around 100.
I have contacted few mechanics and they all said that swap the engine otherwise you won't get power and economy.
So after discussion with 2 different mechanics and searching on internet here are the options:-
1- Only change the automatic transmission with automatic to manual (it will cost around 20K in ISB), no guaranty that it will improve pick and mileage as per my expectation.
2- Repair current engine for oil leaks and replace ring/piston. Not sure about price in ISB.
3- Replace engine and transmission (It will cost around 100K for honda db15 dual vtec+transmission) But I have heard that 4efe (Toyota) is also good option for both fuel and economy. Should I replace the engine+transmission or not?
4- Sell the car . Personally I don't want to sell the car unless it is the last option.
Thanks in advance to all .
