NO OIL WITHOUT ANY OBVIOUS LEAKS

1998 Honda Accord

Engine Mechanical problem
1998 Honda Accord 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 231000 miles

My honda starting smoking this morning and smelling like oil. After looking it over I found it had no oil. I looked all over and could not find any place it is leaking from. What can cause the engine to " burn" the oil? And what can I do to fix/prevent it happening in the future?

Hi rturnage,

At the mileage and age of the engine, the valve seals should be dead so this would result in oil consumption.

To reduce the consumption, the valve seals would have to be replaced. If not you would have to monitor the oil level regularly.
