Hi Scotty ! Love your videos ! I’ve recently bought a 2011 Honda Accord Tourer, 2.0. Its got 100.000 km on the clock. The car looks like being in great condition, everything looks - sounds- and feels great. 2 previous owners. All service and oil changes are documented as being done at the appropriate time throughout the car's history. But ... The engine is burning a lot of oil though, about 1 liter per 1000 km. Changing the PCV didn’t help. I’ve had the oil and filter changed recently, good quality fully synthetic from a well-known brand as per usual, and have noticed that the oil gets very dirty pretty quickly. Within about 1000 km, the oil gets black. Is that a good thing ? With my Toyota, the oil still looks like new after even 10000 km. I’ve done some research and spoken to a lot of mechanics, and some claim that the burning of oil will pass within a year or so. What do you think ? I’ve seen people on the internet with similar problems, and some of them advise pouring Sea Foam cleaner into the cylinder, and letting it soak for days. (Of course, emptying the cylinder is crusial before attempting to start the engine afterwards, to prevent aqua lock). What do you think, should I give the Sea Foam treatment a try ? Or just keep feeding the engine oil, and see what happens ?
