History
Accident/Negligence Events History:
(June 2016) -- Owner (I) induced a temporary engine shutdown. Caused by owner (me) filling oil tank on a hill -- i.e. whilst the front of the TSX was faced parallel to an incline -- and consequently overflowing the oil tank. The TSX started, and achieved a runtime distance of 1.5 miles before failure/negligence was evident. Symptoms of event were as listed: The TSX would not accelerate, once the TSX crested the incline/hill in question (unsure/not positive of auto-mechanical details); Bellows of white smoke during accelerator engagement. (during realization of failure/negligence; engine idled; once engine wouldn't move car anymore). Repair/Problem Resolution: (Equipment:) A new oil pan crush-washer; A socket wrench; A (from HONDA MOTOR CO., LTD.) 2009 Acura TSX Service Manual (electronic, PM for source.); Mobil 1 brand, 5W-10 full-synthetic oil, not OEM spec. since high-mileage (>125,000 mi.) (OEM spec. is a full-synthetic "5W-20"); An Oil Drain Pan; A jack and jack-stands; Ordered a Jack; (Procedure:) Simply drained out all the oil, disposed of the old crush-washer, re-applied oil pan bolt with new crush-washer, then re-filled the oil tank with with new oil to OEM specified volumetric capacity, 5.1 litres. Consequences, intermediate-term and long-term remain to be determined.
