98 Honda Civic LX engine problem
Having a major problem.... My engine is blowing oil out the back of the engine. I'm not sure what the name of the hole is but it is in the center behind the engine. Can anyone help tell me why this is happening???? Possibly how to fix it??? If you need more info, let me know. I can upload a photo if need too.
i think your leaking oil ftom the oil filter
is it a hole at the very bottom? it's probably the oil drain plug. u can buy a new one
The hole, i believe, is called a "breather hole". I talked to the honda dealership mechanic and he informed me that he believes my PCV valve is stopped up and needs to be replaced. Would a bad PCV Valve cause oil to come out?
If you have problems with blow by it would, but in my experience the excess gas will push the dip stick up a bit and vent there before blowing and seals on the block itself. If anything it'll take out a valve cover gasket first, which is not where you are describing. Regardless it's a cheap easy part to replace yourself, and you should do it for peace of mind if nothing else. Do you have a digital camera and can you attach a picture of the leak.
probably is pcv. Its not an expensive part so it shouldnt be a big deal
