So i'm having a slight issue, whenever i take a sharp turn or just a slight turn such as pulling in/ pulling out of the drive way, going up in car garage,I get the ENGINE OIL LEVEL LOW, now my oil according to my car is at 50%, i just added a QT of mobile 1 synthetic like a week ago, and i use 4.5 qts on oil change done 1000 miles ago (synthetic suppose to last 5000) so i shouldn't have low engine oil.


1.Am i burning oil at 56,000 miles?
2.What can i do to check if i can check if im burning oil?
3. could it just be a bad sensor? like the vtec soleniod or something??
4.why does it happen when making turns?

COOLANT ISSUE: I Smell coolant from my engine, i checked for leaks, NONE, i flushed added new coolant, still draining and coolant smell.
1. Where do i look if ive checked HOSES (top and bottom) and ive checked throttle body area since i did the TB MOD????

ANy help, suggestions will be greatly appreciated, ive searched on this topic before no answers, problem went away now its back :-/

Your oil pressure sender could be faulty if you have enough oil in the pan, usually it only trips when its below the lower dot.

You could use oil at 1 mile on a brand new car. Mobile one is crap oil, most of us use penzoil here, there was a post up here that had proof that it was much much better.

If your loosing coolant you have a problem, if its not in your oil you most likely blew your head gasket, which could also be the reason for you using oil. Where do you smell the coolant from? Feel the passenger foot well is it wet?
You dont need to abuse a car for the gasket to let go.

Im not saying its 100% your head gasket but its possible. Does the car smoke out the exhaust when you take off?

Not sure what you mean by intake hose? Are you referring to the intake pipe that connects to the throttle body or the breather tube that connects to the valve cover?

It is also possible that your TB has a cracked coolant passage, have you dont a TB bypass? If not I would do it just to make sure thats not the problem.
The TSX does NOT have an oil level low light. It's an oil pressure light. If that light comes on your engine oil level is critically low.

Youd be surprised actually, it doesnt need to be very low to make it trip during a fast turn or a big incline. When I was having issues with using oil It would pop on for a second during hard turns.
