I'm going to try the Marvels Mystery Oil soak tonight. I'm also very curious about soaking with seafoam but hoping that MMO clears it. Will keep my plugs since have less than 20k on them and will go for an oil cjange. Since it's summer, I'll go with 10W30.

There was a known defect with the older corollas pistons. This is well documented. The fix is to take almost the whole engine apart, extract the pistons and to drill 2 extra oil drain holes, then use new rings and reinstall.

I don't use marvel's myself but perhaps I should start or at least 1/3 of the sea foam every oil change.

stick with 0w20. It's best for the hot temps believe it or not and it's also best for the cold temps since it's thin.

I have found MMO to be benefical, thanks to t-rd from another posting. If you are doing a soak, AC Delco, seafoam, MMO.

Try Castrol 5W-20, it is closer to a 30W. Remember it goes in thick & comes out thick. Also sub 1 qt. of Marvel MO for a qt. of oil for the next couple changes ($3.88 Walmart), it does thin out the oil some. I use 0W-20 in the winter but only 1/2 qt. of MMO 5W-30 summer with a full qt. MMO. A soak will give you more of a immediate result as MMO in the oil is a slow process. PCV valve changed ?

KW2004Accord, I've tried Castrol, Pennzoil, Mobil1, Royal Purple. I've tried Restore, MMO once and Lucas. I'm burning about 1 quart every 1500 miles. I know it's not a lot but this is my 6th accord and I've never had oil burning. I bought the Accord with 90K miles. Changed PCV valve, brand new plugs, throttle body cleaning, etc. I love checking the oil every couple of hundred by adding oil every 400 miles, I HATE.

I'm definitely thinking of doing OW20 in winter but I'm not a huge fan of adding MMO, Restore of Lucas to crankcase. If this MMO doesn't work, I will soak again. If it doesn't work the second time, I'll soak with Seafoam for a few hours. I was going to remove the MMO after 4 hours but now i'm leaving it over night. I really hope that this soak will fix or elevate this goock.

Use of 1qt. of oil per 1,000 miles is acceptable according to Honda. You may have (carboned) sticking oil rings, a soak will help that. The AC Delco is strongest followed by seafoam then MMO. 6hr. soak is min. with overnight the best. Check the level after a couple hrs. as you may need to add more. Some people have had to do 2-3 soaks, depending on how bad the problem was. Many still run the MMO in their oil after the soak for several oil changes. Sometimes going to a different brand or weight of oil helps. I have noticed whenever I switch brands or weights the engines uses about 1/4 qt. more for the next 2 oil changes. Come back & tell us your results, good luck.

Read this forums answer to the problem of oil consumption. It has nothing to do with oil viscosity or brand. The reason for the consumption of oil are the piston oil control rings are gummed up with carbon and stuck closed. You could damage your engine if you put something other than what is recommend by Honda. They have been doing this marvelous mystery oil soak since 2010 with great success. They have been running one quart of mm oil added to the oil since 2010 with no issues.

Dudes and Dudettes...18 hours of soak with MMO. 4-5 oz in each cylinder. Only the left most cylinder had MMO which I sucked out with turkey baster. I put the plugs in and pulled them out again to find the tips wet so I got nervous and double checked with the turkey baster but all was cleared. After putting anti-seize and dielectric grease on plugs, I fitted them in and cranked the engine. It turned, smoke for less than 30 seconds. 5 minutes of idle, took it around town. 7 miles on high rev shifting than on the highway cruising at 75mph and some more high throttling. Drove it for 20 miles.

Since then I've checked the oil stick 5 times and the level has remained the same on the oil stick. I used Quaker 5W20 dino oil since I religiously change at 3000 miles. 230 driven and you all have saved me! Amazing, unbelievable, can't believe it! If I burn any oil by 500 miles, I'll do a second soak with MMO. I don't think I'll need to do a seafoam soak at this point.

Sounds great, thanks for the update. Honda recommends dino since their engines are easy on the oil, synthetic if you want. QS is the mid tier of the Shell Co. oils. It may be a semi-syn. since a few of the major brands have found it cheaper to blend in some syn. instead of coming up with a separate add pack. You may want to still run MMO in the crankcase for the next few changes as it will help with more of the clean up. Walmart has QS oil change for $19.95.

Conventional oil is the oil I use nowadays, heh.

When I had my Accord, I use the Pennzoil Ultra Platinum. Good stuff, but can be pretty steep without discounts. You don't have to, though. Conventional is just fine.

Also, I believe 5W-20 all have at least a tiny dose of synthetic in them. Full dino can't be that thin.

I'll add some MMO to the crankcase a couple hundred miles before the oil change. Can't beat $19.95 QS oil change at Walmart. I used to put semi-synthetic and change at 3500 miles. I need to save some money hence dino oil is the way. Maybe in severe winters, I'll go back to synthetic.

I love Pennzoil Ultra Platinum but yea it can be expensive. Let's see how this goes. Fingers crossed.

MMO can go in anytime just don't overfill the crankcase. It works best if put in with a new oil change, I think its use for a couple hundred miles wouldn't be effective, cost or otherwise.

If anyone plans to use this stuff regularly with oil changes. You get a way better deal buying it by the gallon. This is a seller I've used before:



Same concept with seafoam. Regular use of it, there's no reason not to buy in bulk. This is the deal I just bought 2 months ago :
