1997 Honda Prelude Repair Question
1997 Honda Prelude oil consumption
I used a synethic blend for my car. I recently did an oil change and after a 1000 miles I had to add oil, a quart and a half. I see no oil spots in the driveway. I see no leakage around the oil filter. I notice some on the engine block but not a substantial amount to indicate the amout missing. Help????
It may not have been filled completely at the last oil change, or it's burning it in the combustion chamber...notice any smoke?

I checked it after i did the oil change and it was at the proper fill line on the dipstick. And no I haven't noiticed any smoke at all of any color. This engine purrs, so I don't understand what's going on.
Never used oil before? try going back to non-synthetic oil and see what happens
Can you go from synthetic back to regular oil? I thought regular oil breaks down faster than sythetic?
How long has it been on synthetic? Did it use oil before?
Its been about 3 oil changes and I was told when I purchased the sythetic oil, I couldn't go back to regular oil once you started using sythetic. Maybe I shouldn't have listened?
i dont see why you couldnt go back to regular oil. If it didnt burn oil before, I would go back for sure. I have seen engines leak on synthetic, but not on regular oil
