Asked by Nov 19, 2013 at 10:32 PM about the 1989 Honda Accord SEi Coupe

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Head gasket blew on my 1989 Honda Accord SEI, 2.0L Fuel injected engine. I had the head surfaced. When car was put back together, the air filter woul fill with oil, after about 10 miles of driving. This problem did not occur before head gasket problem. Any ideas of what could be causing this?

Make sure the PCV is hooked up and functioning properly, also check the oil level, make sure it isn't overfull.
