    Hello, first i want to introduce me. I daily drive an Del Sol 1997 manual with an d16y8 engine, bought it when i was 16 and built it. I am from Germany, so sorry if i didn't write or spell everything correct. The Engine is mostly stock, with an other Air Intake, and Exhaust. I did a little...

    I have a d15b2 and I am currently trying to slow its oil burning down as much as I can. I already have cleaned the PCV valve and changed my oil from the factory specified to 20W50. This made a noticeable difference but it still burns allot of oil. I am eventually going to get the valve stem...

    Hey guys, I've been lurking around the forums for quite some while to get much needed info on swaps and various other things but this is my first post, I wish I wouldn't have to do this but I don't know what else to try at this point. Okay, here we go! I've swapped a D16Z6 in my '98 EJ6 coupe...
  4. Transmission alley
    I think I goofed pretty bad. I have never worked with honda engines before, and the previous engine in my 74 mini cooper used engine oil to oil the transmission. When I put the d16z6 in the mini, i simply put the half shafts in and filled the car with oil and let 'er rip. Ive only put about 60...

    All four of my plugs have oil on them. I noticed this a while back (maybe 6 months) and it seemed like there was mostly oil on the threads of the plugs. I changed my valve cover o-rings and the valve cover gasket. There was little to no oil on the end of the plugs that connect to the plug...

    I have a 94 civic ex d16z6 that I just recently built. I am in the break in process now and after driving it today, I popped the hood only to find smoke and oil pooled up betweed the head and the top of the manifold. The exhaust is not gray and thick. the build is as follows: D16Z6 Block 75mm...

    Hello, After the overhaul odyssey (see here: Difference between D14Z4 and D14Z2) now my engine runs fine and burns almost no oil between changes. I've made my first 10 000 km after the repair and now its time for oil change again. So far I've been running with 10W40 oil, semi-synthetic. My...

    So I picked up a .63AR T3 and am starting to look at oil lines. I'm not too worried about the oil feed lines because those are usually screwed in at both ends. The oil return line is what I'm starting to look into. I've done a couple of setups and have always gone with barbed fittings off the...

    Hey all. I'm new and this is my first post. I have a red 93 civic si coupe, unfortunately no pics yet. I traded a 92 4runner for it and so far I am loving it! It was leaking a little oil and I narrowed it down to the oil pan gasket. I replaced the gasket, however the leak got worse. Here's...
