Miles on Civic- 524,636 Miles on oil - 14,198 Amsoil 0W-30 AZO Amsoil EAo36 oil filter Twin Filtermag CT3.2 magnetic oil filters Dimple magnetic oil drain plug 5 ozs Liquimoly 47 ozs make up oil Blackstone Labs; We're still tracking the possibility of a coolant leak for your Civic, and the increase in Potassium suggests it's getting worse. Sodium hasn't increased much, but you'll want to keep and eye out on your end in case the coolant level is getting low on you. Copper increased enough to mark too, but 6 ppm isn't really a lot of brass/bronze wear in the grand scheme of things, so that's just to watch now too. The TBN came back OK at 2.6, and the PCread 17/16/14. WEsuggest cutting back to 10kK miles again because of the

I thought Honda's usually push combustion into the coolant when the HG goes. edit: just read the other thread. disregard my comment. Maybe you have a slightly porous head casting and a bit of coolant seeps though somewhere.

Ok wow. I have not even looked at your report. Lol, I do not even need to look at your report when I see a 1993 Honda civic with 524,636 miles on it. That is one car that is not trying to die. Kudos to you and that car. You have kept it well and it has treated you good. Do you have pictures of this car and the odometer? I would love to see it. Feel free to share some pictures, if you do not mind. Man, I hope you can keep on maintaining this car and it keeps on going even to past 600,000! Great job! I have a 2008 Nissan Maxima with 243,600 on odometer. My main goal is I hope the car can last atleast past 300,000 miles. Then it can die after that and I will be fine. But I am not just ignoring this car to let it die. I will keep on doing my Maxima right and taking good care of it until it becomes expensive to maintain it. Till then, I say keep on driving that Civic as I do mine. I love seeing people keep a car that has a lot of miles and still using the car often.

Thanks for the pictures. That car looks clean. Whenever you have time and the lighting is better, I would truly love that picture of the odometer showing us those miles. Any day you have time. No rush. The Civic is just simple and straight to the point. Just like I thought it would look like. Just plain simple. That thing should definitely be able to reach atleast 600,000 in its lifetime. keep on trucking! And thanks for sharing.

Don't know where you're getting your pricing information: [Linked Image] 16 quarts for 149.35 says $9.35 a quart to me.
