Default Quickie lube joints

I do my own oil changes, but my wife takes her Accord to quick lube
places. Almost every time she gets it back we smell burning oil, like
they got it on the exhaust manifold or something. Are these guys just
being sloppy, or is there something else going on? I don't get why it
happens every time, even though she takes it to different places.

Also, this last time, she got it back and had oil leaking (quite a bit).
I watched the dip stick and the level never dropped, even though at
least a half to full quart must've come out of there over several days.
Where was it coming from if it didn't affect the level the oil pan? Is
there an overfilling issue?

Thanks!

JB

Be a good husband and do them for her. Then you will be able to figure out
what is going on.

Dear John,

FYI, I am a good husband and I certainly don't need that type of advice
from the likes of you.

If that doesn't spin your wheels. Then you could go to the location she goes
to get her oil changed, and ask them what's going on. They are in a better
position to answer that question, then people that are spread across the
world.

You know, when I don't know the answer to a question, I just keep my
mouth shut. I thought this was a Honda forum. Adios, I'm outta here.

So what kind of advise are you looking for? If you don't like the answer go
and talk to your "quicky" friends, they will be happy to see you back.

It was meant in jest. You have no idea what the likes of me is.

I'm afraid your original question could have had a number of answers,
not just the one good and true from the one expert who knows all.

If you've ever watched the workers in a specialized shop, one that does
just mufflers or just tires or just oil, you know that they try to work
fast. One is a valuable imployee if one can punch lots of cards. So it's
usually not in the worker's interest to be real careful about where the
oil goes. It's like everything else these days: high efficiency means
the worker is probably doing the work of two guys.

Could be your wife's car was over filled, but I don't know where the
breather fumes go these days. They used to go into the intake manifold
and perhaps they still do except that intake manifolds aren't what they
used to be. Could be they filter it and vent it or condense it and
return it to the crankcase.

And it's very possible that oil is getting on parts of the exhaust
system but that wouldn't hurt anything except the air. Could be that the
oil filter is so close to some exhaust component that it takes special
care to avoid drips, and because of the nature of the job even workers
in different shops make the same small mistake.

So maybe God doesn't subscribe to this group and post definitive
answers, but that's no reason to abandon it. We are but rational.

Wow, talk about an attitude problem... And I can't help but wonder why
do they keep going back to that place, when there are so many oil change
shops that do a good job.

After the first time I would have checked out the car myself, or I would
have went to a Honda dealer, or to a mechanic that I trust to find out
what is going on.
