    Red face Honda City 05 overhaul.

    Assalam-o-Alikum,

    Dear All, I have a Honda City 05 i-dsi, that drinks out 0.5 liter oil on every 1000kms,with white smoke, it has been a year since it's behaving so, usually i filled it's oil and moved on. Got it checked from several mechanics, they all say it requires Rings and Head work. I also went to Honda Center on Peshawar Road (Rawalpindi). They say it would cost around 40k, while other mechanics say a little less.

    I have read out forums on changing assembly of L13A, but it doesn't seems reliable to me, especially the changing engine number part.

    1st question :"How much is this Honda Center people reliable on being overhauling an engine in terms of cost and quality?"
    2nd question: " Any other mechanics that are good on Honda cars in Rwp/ISB area?"

    Regards.

    Although the question was not asked from me but still I will answer it.
    Dont go for overhaul you will get the complete engine alongwith head, block assembly, throttle, coils and every sensor new in 20k plus your engine.
    L12 is 1248 cc
    L13 is 1332 cc
    But you wont feel any real difference in ride quality in daily drive but yes on motorway L13 easily climbs salt range in 3rd & 4th with fully loaded car and yes another thing is that L13 is more fuel efficient than L12 I dont know why

    Sorry bro for the late reply. i had replaced the head assembly with same type from Honda Center. Although the cost was high, but it has been 4 years now and i never had to any issue of engine.. It is still smooth like a new engine. Only top up with Liqui Moly and drive.
