    Does our K24Z7 have the oil jets for cooling the pistons like the K24A2? I want to know because I am planning on a doing an all motor build in a year or so with a ported stock head and new cams along with ITBs and and raising the fuel cut to 8k. I am also getting the FD2 Type-R oil pump as well...

    Looking for some guidance. thought I blew a head gasket but I am no longer sure. coolant completely turned to brown jell with oil...No coolant in oil....pulled head off the 1.8L and do not see a direct sign of where the oil and coolant mixed.....We all know of the pre 2009 civic block...
  3. 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...

    I recently took my 14 Si for the first time for an oil change. The oil was way too dark amber for fresh oil, and it smelled like exhaust on the dipstick (like used oil in the pan when you drain it). My car also started making that dreaded VTC actuator noise. Even though I kept telling myself...
  5. General Maintenance
    I bought a used 2014 Civic Si and I love it. I had to get my first oil change done on the car and I wanted Honda parts, so I took it to the dealer. After the oil change, I noticed that they had over filled about 1/3 quarts (which I absolutely loathe). I drained some of the oil through the...

    I installed my rbc and prl cai with battery relocate about 2 weeks ago. Thats when i notice there was a small leak on right side of the valve cover. It got me worried since i only have about 15k miles on it. I went to go check my brother's Si also with only 20k miles on it and he had a small one...
  8. Suspension & Brakes
    So I went about 90 just to open it up have not in some time, I hit the brake and the steering wheel shook, that is just an alignment right? And, or rotation? Just replaced oil with Honda 0w-20, and k and n filter..... what else do you suggest to do at 38k miles? anything I am missing?

    So my brother recently bought an 02 Rsx Type S. We changed his oil yesterday and when we looked at the manual how much oil it needed it said 5 quarts. I recently changed my oil on my SI too and it only needed 4.4 quarts. I find this weird since the K24 is the bigger engine. Do you guys know why...

  11. General Maintenance
    Ok guys so I've been pondering this question for a bit now and cannot seem to come to a satisfactory conclusion of my own. MTF... LSD Oil... GEAR Oil... I'm looking into synthetics for all three on my Si. My question is can I use one for all? Or are they all the same anyways? I mean, is...

    i'll skip the story (read below if you like) but i made a small dent/crack in the bottom of my oil pan. its very small and its leaking oil but very very slowly, its been a week and i dont even see a drop in the oil level. so i was hoping i could just patch up the little crack with something and...
  15. Drivetrain Problems
    So I recently joined the oil consumption program from Honda. My question is, by joining this does it post it to my recall information, because I joined this test 2 weeks ago, and tonight a recall or product update was posted when I ran my VIN for recalls, I'm unsure whether this is because of...
  16. Drivetrain Problems
    So I was doing my weekly oil dipstick check on my 2012 Si when I realized the oil on the stick had a faint gasoline smell to it. After I un-twisted the oil fill cap from the motor, I noticed a very distinct smell of gasoline. Anybody else experience this?? Is it normal?? Purchased the Si in...
