Oil leaks

i just sold my 89 honda accord and the person said that there was evidence of oil leaks and also said it had a little rough idle dont all velicles leak a little oil mike

Yes, I could easily comment…Duh, it’s an 89. The purchaser MUST realize that a car this age will never be showroom new and a personal sale is always “as is”.

My '88 Accord LXi had slow oil leaks for years. When it got on the timing belt a couple of years ago I had the crankshaft seals replaced … along with the timing belt. There’s still a little seepage at the transmission end, but who cares?
