Engine Performance problem
1999 Honda Civic 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 133K miles
I have a 99 Honda Civic EX Coupe that leaks oil. At first I assumed it was the gaskets because I took it to a lube shop and they said that's where it was coming from. Changed the gasket and then it kept leaking. It's coming from the top of the engine where the pistons are. But in the back where some little metal squarish type thing with a round cylinder meets with the metal part.
My mechanic has tried sealing it with silicone. And it hasn't worked. He says it is called the v-tec valve but I've looked for it at autozone, o reillys the likes but they never heard of it. It slowly leaks and I can't figure out where it is. Thanks.
have the same problem?
