    After Engine Dilution Fix, car oil alert came on, car died on hwy

    About 3 months after the oil dilution fix and oil level alert came on and the engine died on the highway causing an accident. This will be my last honda I ever own.

    A lot wrong with the post but biggest point, if the engine shutting off caused you to have an accident YOU SHOULDNT BE DRIVING A CAR EVER.

    You blame honda for how you Operate and maintain a vehicle. Right.

    Keep the thread updated about your malfunction

    That's a little extreme. Just because someone is involved in a NO FAULT accident, it doesn't mean we should automatically take away their driving privileges, especially without knowing all of the facts. If you were to get rear ended by someone, does that also mean that YOU SHOULDNT BE DRIVING A CAR EVER also?

    By the way, what is an "oil level alert"? I didn't know these cars had this. Was it really a "low oil pressure" warning instead? Either way, wouldn't this alert indicate low oil, instead of too much?

    Please do give use some more details ulieq.

    What the hell? "Young generation"? If an almost brand new vehicle runs out of oil and seizes up, I fail to see how that is the "young generation's" fault.

    Unless the operator is the one who changed the oil and forgot to put oil back in.

    I'm guessing that would might been whoever preformed "the fix" though.

    Should we really be taking away someone's license due to a mistake that someone else might have made?

    Find out the cause and let us know.

    Everyone else needs to stop causing drama.
