    Default Honda City 2005, Engine Overhaul

    Hello

    I need some advice, please. My car reduces oil and gives white smoke when the engine has run for some time and is hot. When the engine is cold, it does not give any smoke. I got a compression test and the Honda Service Center told me that the 2nd and 3rd cylinder have gone weak, less than 70% compression, while cylinder 1 and 4 are ok (more than 85% compression).

    They have recommended an engine overhaul. On the odo meter, the car has done 95,000 kms but since it is 2nd hand I am not sure it is ok.

    I am in Quetta, where you dont have very competent mechanics as well.

    Can someone please give me advice.

    Thnx

    Dear arabianmalik, hash4u, Sk_KingpiN, RollOnBigMaMa

    even though i took good care of my Honda City IDSi Vario (automatic) still since last 3 years my mechanics both at Honda City Sales and local mechanic insisted on replacement / overhaul of engine due to weak condition. now i m totally not using my car for past few days as suddenly one day my engine light came ON and still shows same after i start the car for couple of minutes. Odo readings are only 127K. i tried to maintain my car as good as possible with costly equipment installation n replacement but now its gone really weak, the engine.

    Kindly suggest the best option overhaul or replacement keeping aside the cost factor as Honda and outside Honda both charging almost the same.Overhaul is much expensive 70K, however, replaement (Kabli, Bilal Ganj) is much cheaper 30K. replacement i also confirmed to be around 30K.

    Kindly sugest.

    Ateeq bhai
    is the car reducing oil alot?
    127,000 km is no mileage for this engine to be worn out
    we have people with 300, 000 km's on original engine here

    anyways rebuild is never recommended as we have cheap kabli assemblies available
    Life is short and very unpredictable just like a Quarter mile .....

    No dear by oil if you mean engine oil then no its not reducing engine oil rapidly but mileage is reduced. pick is very weak. 2 to 3 mechanics in Lahore suggested replacement or overhaul the engine. GOT confused.

    YES!! Engine light comes alive once kept idle for 2-5 mins and quickly when drive.
    NOP!! not specifically but my regular mechanic used to do scan some year ago.

    Please go to a workshop which has a proper scanner
    probably some sensor needs service/replacement causing the low pick/response nothing else

    p.s --- your car does not have a catalytic converter (so you can rule that out )
