Question type: Maintenance & Repair

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.

1 Answer

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.
