My Honda Civic VTI (Auto) 1999 is turning the engine oil black even after just 500KM of
car run. However, oil does not gets low but it just turning it black. I have however already
washed it with engine oil twice. but when i run it to just 200 km it starts getting dark black
in color. Please advise.
Not getting low is relative - Check your oil in the morning before the car starts only to diagnose this problem. You may already be doing this? Try two tanks of gas and then check again - my bet - the piston rings are giving way and the oil get flashed in the explosion and some does burn, check your tail pipe with a white paper towel as another test.
