Re: NEED SOME HELP

It sounds like you baby has a ton of blow by man meaning your could have bad piston rings or bad valve seals.

Your first step should be a compression check on all 4 pistons. If any of them or all of them are reading low redo the compression check but add about a cap full of oil into each hole (not a one time but before you screw the compress checker back down) and if the compression goes up you'll know it the valve seals. But if not it is for sure the rings. I hope that helps man.

Oh and take that crank case filter off they do no good on Hondas (if its the type were you git rid of the hose that runs in between the intake and the valve cover) and can harm them from what I've been told.
