I bought a 98 Civic EX, LX or DX (not sure at
this pt. not going outside) from a friend.
everything seemed fine, but i was warned
that possibly the gaskets or tranny MIGHT
cause a problem, but down the road. way
specs before my purchasing: 300k miles, no
owned by owner for 7 years
Turn over is rough when gas tank is low.
Tranny replaced twice
the oil is GREAT on this car. pretty much a
champ driver. went to walmart last week to
get oil replaced, even they said it didnt need
to be and it looked great. that was 2 weeks
NOW every morning since there seems to
be a bigger gradual leak. we checked oil
tonight and it was great. more than half,
nice color. what could it possibly be?
gasket going? tranny? did walmart fkk it up?
any and all answers are BEYOND
welcomed. please and thank you.

Check your transmission oil level.
If you had the oil changed 2 weeks ago and the oil level is only half way up the dipstick you have an oil leak or the engine is burning it. What color is the puddle under the car? I hope you didn't pay too much from your "friend". 300,000 on a 4cyl engine is A LOT! Yes even on a Toyota or Honda.
