    Default city idsi 06decreasing oil level

    guys a frnd of mine has a 07 city idsi.driven almost 60k kms.engine in excellent condition no problem at all.

    the problem is that the engine is decreasing engine oil.he is using havolin formula oil.the car is on cng.there no smoke no leaking frm the engine or anything.

    i was talking to him n he told me one thing which cud has caused it,he drives like maniacs nd takes the rpm to very high ranges.nd many times he takes his car to 150km/h in 4th gear.i mean driving all the way to the red line.can this cause the low fuel levels?
    he tells me that almost one quater oil is vanished frm the engine...

    can anyone help?

    If there is no leakage, then surely decreased oil level indicates a weak engine. Plus the driving style of your friend you mentioned says it all.

    BTW, I was bit surprised to see the title, people would not believe here that a Honda can do this.
    Be polite on the road. Always give way to others, particularly ambulances and pedestrians.

    Actually speed limiter is installed due to save the engine from this thing. One drives so oftenly on high ratio must have ruined the engine. Tel him to have a complete oil change circle at normal drive. This may help all this to be normalized

    @panic thats the Rpm limiter, speed limiter in these cars, speacially pakistani no way,

    @ahmed, tell ur friend to c, it the car wets the floor or area parked in the morning, secondly head ki, tapet seal, these things cud be damaged, if thats not it then mayb a weak engine.

    @chinyoti
    no man he says not a single drop of oil under the car or on the engine.nd if the seals etc are damaged,is that an easy fix or u hav to open the complete engine? sorry dnt know this. nd he isnt running the oil on low.the oil level is a lil below the full oil marking on the dip stick.so its not a problem,secondly he had a lil bit of oil left in a can so he put that in the engine.

    @mobi1234
    lol man local desi mechanic city idsi k engine ko hath b nai lagaty.they(mostly) cant even do the tappet adjustments etc.

    @panic slayer
    hmmm..thats a nice suggesion.but i dnt think so any mechanic can get the code.i thnink only 3s honda ppl hav the software to do this .right?

    @all
    still im asking that if the engine is eating engine oil,it shud emit smoke.atleast little quantity of it? but theres no smoke.even the cylincer is 100% clean no blackish stuff inside it.
    the other thing is that hez using havolin formula nd used it for 8000kms.the oil starts to decrease at 4000kms.is 8000kms too much for this oil? if it is too much,i shud also b concerned bcuz im using the same oil nd using it for 7000kms.is it fine guys?my oil change man says this oil is good enough for 8000kms.

    in ur case every 1000 kms with the oil filter. cng is dry fuel so oil burns fast and mind you , oil expires after 6 months after opening the can no matter ur car stays in the garage..

    @ahmadbila

    I don't believe what the hell ur mechanic says... 8000Kms is wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy too much for the engine... Oil change is needed rite after 3000kms. Not more than this.. I change oil at 2000kms for extra precautions. Yaar oil is the blood of engine... Don't compromise on that atleast... Not even on any other oil like power oil, brake oil etc... Keep them clean and full upto the levels..

    Well immidiately change the oil, i think ur problem would solve. I'm amazed how it did 8000Kms (EIGHT THOUSAND... OMG!). The oil will b more like mud now...

    Any mechanic can't pull out the code.... Only specialized electricians and 3s dealer.... Like in peshawar there is 1 3s Honda Dealer n only 2 electrians among thousands of them who can pull/identify the codes
