2006 TSX Oil Leak only 500 miles!    (Score: 1, Normal) 06-01-2006 13:43

Just picked up a TSX, bought with under 10 miles on it. After about two weeks began to notice a very small oil spot forming in the garage. Took it into the dealer, and they said that the Oil Galley Plug was loose. Any ideas if this should be any concern for the future of this car?

how much oil did it lose? I would think you should be okay as long as it didn't starve and (obviously) if they fixed the problem.

it didn't lose much oil.. Still above min on the dip stick. Anyone have a clue if this is the "special" oil for the break in period?

Yeah it was the so called "special" oil that leaked out. I wouldnt be concerned much given you still had plenty of oil left and caught the problem early.
