I have a 2002 Honda Accord and an oil leak, but not on the ground and now black fluid is leaking out my exaust. What could it be and how much of a fix????

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Check for leaks in the valve-train as the valves seals in the valve-train prevent engineoil from entering the combustion area. A leak in the valve seals could be the cause of smoke and exhaust pipe oil-leaking too.
