      Hey Scotty my daughter went to the gas station to get gas and afterwards the car would not start. It sputters. Is it water in the gas? My mexhanic said that the riming belt slipped but he didnt even look at the car yet. What do you think?

      Hey Scotty, your videos are great!! I'm learning so much! Thank you. Question: I recently discovered that my 2009 Honda CR-V engine was making sounds. The dipstick oil was below the first dimple. This only after 6k miles since last full synthetic oil change. Is my engine burning oil? what can I Do about it?? Thank you!!

    Well, we’re a Honda/Toyota family. & we have 4 cars with their “Earth Dreams” engines.
    We have 2014 Honda Accord with the 2.4L 4-Cylinder, a 2016 TLX with the wonderful 3.5L V6, another TLX with 2.4L 4-Cylinder, & we recently bought a 2019 Acura ILX with the standard 2.4L 4-Cylinder.
    We haven’t had any problems with oil dilution with any of them, & they all have direct injection tech. The problem seems to be with their newer 1.5L 4-Cylinder engine.
    Scotty really need to be more precise as to which engine Honda has the problem with.

  • mainman2999
    mainman2999 Day ago +4

    I've gone into this issue DEEPLY. Its NOT because the fuel is injected into the chamber at high pressure. What IS happening is due to a number of factors. Firstly in the pursuit of efficiency engines now have piston rings which are really weak and offer less internal friction to the engine and result in better mpg and bhp, trouble is, on cold starts with the full enrichment some of the fuel is bore washing and ending up going past the rings into the sump oil. Also as engine oils are SOOO good today, the initial bedding -in of the rings to the bores sometimes takes miles and miles to occur ( a running in oil would be better for initial 500 miles so that a small amount of 'wear' can take place to allow bedding in of the rings and achieve a better ring seal) but manufacturers install great oil from day one and running in fully is delayed. I really think to run a new engine in fast and well today you really need to drive it pretty hard and load it up from day one in order to force the rings into the bores by having high combustion chamber pressures and to avoid bore glazing. I remember years ago when Mobil brought out an oil called Mobil SHC which I believe morphed into Mobil 1 Synthetic, we built an engine using the SHC thinking it would be great for the bearings and stuff, but we could not get the rings to break in, it was pumping so much oil into the chambers the piston tops were swimming in oil, problem was the oil was so good the rings were just gliding up and down the bores on a film of oil. We drained the oil, fitted a cheapo supermarket 20-50 mineral oil and flicked a teaspoon of 'scouring' powder into each intake trumpet of the twin webers while on the dyno under a fair bit of load and hey presto, the rings got bedded in, no more smoking, ran clean. weak piston rings and synthetic oil baby.

    Honda dealer tech here. We have seen no oil dilution issue with the 2.4L Earth Dreams engine like the one in the video. The 1.5 turbo is the engine effected by this issue.

      Exactly... It's the turbo 1.5 earth dreams having issues. My 2018 Honda Fit Sport 1.5 earth dreams non turbo is perfectly fine. Runs great and loves higher rpms, handles amazing... Fun little car!

    • pochoun33137
      pochoun33137 Day ago +4

      pringlemorgan - I mentioned the same thing. We have bought Acura Vehicles with their “Earth Dreams” engine’s ranging from the 2.4L 4-Cylinder motor, to the wonderful 3.5L V6. Not a single problem with oil dilution from any of them.

  • Cam J
    Cam J 2 days ago

    I’m a Honda tech and haven’t seen any fuel dilution problems with these 2.4 engines. The only engine that have this issue are the new 1.5 turbo. And you only have the problem if you drive short distances and the engine doesn’t run at operating temp long enough. There is a software update to fix the problem. The engine he’s showing is a k24 with direct injection

    2014 Honda Accord LX i bought with 0 miles in 2013, its now June 2019 and 179,000 with zero issues. Changed spark plugs, air filters, and constant oil changes. Only thing ive had to replace/repair are wheel bearings, brakes, battery, and a starter(local shop repaired it for $90).

    • pochoun33137
      pochoun33137 Day ago

      Justin Thompson - hey we have a 2014 EX with the 2.4L 4-Cylinder & haven’t had any problems with oil dilution. We even have two Acura TLX vehicles, one with the 2.4L 4-Cylinder, & the other with their more powerful 3.5L V6... not a single problem at all.
      The engine with the problem seems to be limited to their newer 1.5L 4-Cylinder turbo motor.

    The GDI sprays on the back of the intake valves. And of course VTEC allows the valves to remain open for longer at high RPM. Furthermore the oil/air separators are built-in. The only real drawback to such an efficient engine seems to be the necessity of diligent oil maintenance.

I'm one for OEM filters only. They're not expensive! Most engine oil you buy at retail stores is made by only a few manufacturers. STP is just rebranded Mobil Super Synthetic. Lol I only had one CR-V and one Civic in my three years at Honda with this complaint btw

    Mitsubishi had trouble with their GDI engines when they came out 20 years ago. Honda has it on their current CRV and it´s even worse than the old Carisma, Galant engine issues. For a company that has only few diesel engines (they don´t sell diesel engine passenger cars in EU), you could expect a better development. If a car cannot last even five years without serious engine trouble, they can´t be taken seriously as one of the most reliable cars on the market.

    I wonder if this is what's wrong with my 2013 Kia Soul? It's really burning oil, has 114k miles. It was part of the large recall where the car could catch fire. Kia just said that all it needed was a flash drive update and the oil consumption is not related to the recall! I don't believe them. They then supposedly ran some diagnostics on the car and said that it needs new spark plugs and the GDI injectors need to be cleaned and my battery has about half the power left. Then at the bottom of the page it says the car needs a new engine! Well why would they think I would put spark plugs and clean the gdi's if it needs a new engine? They said that this would not help with the oil consumption. I called Kia's 1-800 number and all I'm getting is the runaround. The car is paid for and I was planning on driving and another hundred thousand miles. Also it's a stick shift and I can't really find those anymore so I don't know what to do. What are your thoughts?

    I passed on a Subaru Crosstrek because too many people having issues with blown head gaskets and Subaru transmission issues. Nissan has a horrible track record so it was between Honda or Toyota and the Accord was the best deal. 🤞

    I haven’t had any issues with my 2013 Accord. At 112k miles and haven’t experienced anything like this.

    After watching this video, I'm so glad my 2017 Accord with this engine is only a lease! Thanks Scotty!

    Wish I had seen this video two years ago before I purchased my Ridgeline. It has the 3.5 v6 variant of this Earth dreams engine. I change the oil every 3,000 miles so hopefully I won't have to worry about this oil dilution too much. Oil is cheap, engines aren't!

      J35's are bulletproof. You have no worries.

    Does the 2019 Acura RDX have the same issue? It uses 2.0-litre, 16-valve, Direct Injection, DOHC, VTEC® turbocharged 4-cylinder. Thanks!

      Haihan Wang - actually it seems to be a problem only with their new 1.5L engine.
      We have several Honda/Acura products installed with both the 2.4L 4-Cylinder & 3.5L V6 engines (with direct injection) spanning from as early as 2014... not a single problem at all.
      This oil dilution problem is mainly a problem with their current CR-V with the 1.5L 4-Cylinder

    I'll be curious to see if the oil dilution problem remains unfixed on new 2019 Honda CR-Vs.

    Honda got a fix for this months ago.
