Having problems with your Honda Cars & Trucks ?
Oil in the radiator told need to replace the engine but alsoo was told there was a steel sleeve on engine block causing leak wanting to know if i could replace the sleeve or i had to replace the whole engine on a 1999 honda accord lx
I think you are being led up the garden path here big time ,why because iam almost certain this is the head gasket ,the oil is pumped up to the head to feed the valves and in doing so passes through the head gasket which on numerous occasions on various makes its the head gasket .Some vehicles have a rubber seal around the hole like a seat ibiza and some dont like the focus but with a bit of wear as the motor gets old with over 100.000miles or so the head gasket can and will fail now the only ones that dont are the old morris minor with a copper head gasket .What happens is the head gasket material just breaks down ,the rubber ring in the gasket goes brittle or the material around the feed to the cam breaks down ,All this water in oil and oil in water junk you here so called mechanics blab on about is brown stuff ,this problem can also cause oil to leak out the side of the head and run down the block which its doing on my escort diesel and one day i maight change the gasket when pigs can fly that is of course .No takle the head off clean it up then check its flat with a straight edge and if its ok just renew the head gasket .End of story
