    Default Valve seal or Overhaul required -- Honda City

    AoA,

    I bought honda city 2006, 87K now on ODO , in Feb 2013. all was well but later in April i discover it is reducing oil.
    There is no smoke on idle + startup but if you floor the accelerator it gives black smoke.
    Yesterday i went to many different workshops for checkup, including Honda 3s Thokar, Honda 2s (Maher autos), some workshops i used to go in Iqbal town lahore. and all had almost same opinion that engine need overhaul and some suggested that only rings will be replaced. also if you accelerate with dipstick out you can see smoke coming out from there. i guess its called blow-by

    Now i need suggestions. should i go for complete overhaul or just rings? and also can local workshop do good overhaul or need honda workshop tools for this? one last thing how long it will last or it should last?
    what is approx cost? Honda 2s said its almost 90 K . I am really not intrested for engine swap because of later paperwork and also resale drop which means engine swap = overhaul.

    Black smoke means your engine is running rich on fuel. Blueish white smoke on idling or just after a cold start means you have bad valve stem seals.

    Get your cylinders compression tested first to actually get to know the state of your rings.

    Remove the oil cap on your running engine, if there is smoke coming out of it then yes you have blow by. If you feel just pressure released without too much smoke, then you're fine.

    I have https://www.pakwheels.com/forums/sho....php?p=3317574this to share. But REMEMBER, m not one least bit technical so won't be able to answer any ov why what was done when. For that, you will have to refer to the experts talking in there. Myself, I have explained all that happened; hope you don't go through the same.

    So are you saying that even after overhaul your engine got seized and in the end you had to replace the engine. also after reading your thread i am thinking to not go for overhaul .. either change engine or get rid of that car.

    Well yes, selling the vehicle is just vot m indirectly suggesting only because Qwerty also told ov two other owners who went through the same.
