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 :S . I am really not intrested for engine swap because of later paperwork and also resale drop which means engine swap = overhaul.
