  1. Is this a transmission leak?

    General Maintenance
    LONG story short. My 2012 Civic was recently rear-ended at high speed and the car is a total loss. Miss it dearly. Progressive did a total loss valuation and identified both "obvious" engine and transmission leaks that I was unaware of. I can't argue the engine oil leak-- they sent pics of what...
  2. CVT Oil leak or normal venting

    Drivetrain Problems
    So, I was checking my engine bay the other day and I noticed a sizable oil stain around the CVT fill hole. The stain feels wet/fresh so it's not from the assembly line. I haven't had the CVT oil changed yet, so there is no reason for CVT oil to be on top of the transmission! Also, I don't...

    Any other 2013 civic owners out there? I randomly stumbled upon a 2013 civic review on YouTube and when they were showing the engine compartment, I noticed it has a leak. My 2013 car has the same exact kind of leak as well. Circled in red in the pic. It seems to be around the engine (valve?)...
