Aoa guys,I have a honda city 2004 idsi M/T 333500 on the ODO. Its engine was never opened never repaired. It is with me from day one. The problem im facing us that i was using Zic A+ oil in it till 300,000kms which used to be changed at 3500kms. But after that it started reducing oil whenever it was driven for about 3000kms. So i changed my oil to Caltex havoline motor oil 20w-50 which was changed at 3000kms. For sometime the problem just vanished but now again it is reducing oil. Like whenever it is driven for about 2000kms almost 0.75-1litre oil is reduced. There is no black smoke nor the car feels that its engine is weak. (But yes the silencer tip is blackish from inside)
Kindly suggest me what to do? Is my engine life is almost end? Or is it any other thing? Someone suggested me to replacing the pcv valve can also fix this problem. Im confused. Please guide me properly.
Thanks alot. Have a nice day!
First replace pcv valve..Then proceed further..
hey @ziyad.ahmad.391 thanks for replying. can you guide me with the exact location of PCV valve in this specific model?
and anything else which you suggest?
pcv valve,,,,,oil valve seals,,,,,and if that does not work, rings !
@hash4u Thankyou brother for replying. Can you please tell me the exact location of pcv valve in this model? One more thing. Is this oil caltex havoline 20w-50 ok for this car? Driven 300k+. Thanks
well i never bothered to trace pcv in my car.it has to be under the decorative cover over the tappet cover area...follow the pipe coming out of it 20 50 oil is ok for cars burning oil.its thick n would reduce oil burn/reduction to some extent
bhai iska engine replace kar do, new jesa japanese used engine mill jae ga bilal ganj se, purana engine sath do or new mill jata hai 13000 tak, so first you should visit market.
@hash4u I have changed the pcv valve with a new one. Old was totally blocked. Lets see the results in few days.
@nazimsandhu Brother im already thinking to replace the engine. But there are some points which are not clear. 1. If i change it with a kabli engine will i get the same L12a engine? 2. What if i change it with a L13A or 1.5L engine? Do i have to change my ecu and wiring? My car is manual will auto trany engine fit on my manual car? 3. If i change it with L13a or 1.5L vtec engine will it decrease the value of my car if i sell it?
Kindly guide me
@danial0047 what is the result after changing pcv valve? You did not update on your thread. Actually I have the similar problem
@huazifa brother i did change pcv valve. But somehow the problem decreased but it was still eating oil. So i changed my car with an L15A (1496cc) iDsi engine. And boom. Its a beast now.

How is the consumption with L15?L12 is a very economical to run engine
@hash4u bro the average is almost the same. I didnt take my car out of city. But inside city ot is giving me 13km/L with AC
Bro can you tell us how much the L15A engine cost? Curious to know.
It costed me around rs23000 With AC compressor+coils+plugs+sensors+belt. Without alternator
@carloverman It costed me around rs23000 With AC compressor+coils+plugs+sensors+belt. Without alternator
That's a very good price. Looks like IDSI Engines have become cheap.
