Warranty Extension: 2012–13 Insight Oil Consumption Exceeds Customer Expectations

Supersedes 15-015, dated March 17, 2017, to revise the information highlighted in yellow Replaces 15-015, 2012–13 Insight Oil Consumption Exceeds Customer Expectations

 

AFFECTED VEHICLES

Year Model Trim VIN Range
2012–13 Insight ALL Check the iN VIN status for eligibility

 

REVISION SUMMARY

Under REQUIRED MATERIALS, the oil was changed to Full Synthetic Engine Oil, P/N 08798-9063.

 

BACKGROUND

The oil control rings may become clogged with carbon deposits. These deposits restrict the ability to scrape and return oil from the cylinder walls to the crankcase, which can result in misfires, engine cylinder damage, engine cylinder head damage, and/or engine oil consumption that may exceed customer expectations.

To increase customer confidence, American Honda is extending the warranty on the engine related to engine oil consumption to 8 years from the original date of purchase with no mileage limit.

The warranty extension does not apply to any vehicle that has ever been declared a total loss or sold for salvage by a financial institution or insurer, or has a branded or similar title under any state’s law.

 

CUSTOMER NOTIFICATION

Owners of affected vehicles will be sent a notification of this campaign.

Do an iN VIN status inquiry to make sure the vehicle is shown as eligible.

 

CORRECTIVE ACTION

If the customer complains of oil consumption, do the oil consumption test. If the test shows excessive consumption, then disassemble and inspect the engine. In most cases, you will need to replace the pistons, piston pins, rings and spark plugs.

DIAGNOSIS

  1. Do an engine oil consumption test. Refer to the job aid Engine Oil Consumption Test.
  2. Review the results of the engine oil consumption test.
    • Based on the test results, if the engine is consuming an unusually high amount of oil, contact your DPSM for approval, then go to REPAIR PROCEDURE.
    • Based on the test results, if the engine is consuming a normal amount of engine oil, the vehicle is OK. Have the service advisor explain to the customer that the vehicle is OK, and that the consumption of oil is within a normal range.

NOTE: Have the service advisor remind the customer to check the engine oil level every time the fuel tank is filled. Modern engines require less frequent oil changes, which may impact the amount of oil used between oil changes.

 

REPAIR PROCEDURE

NOTE:

  • IMA components are located in this area. The IMA is a high-voltage system. You must be familiar with the IMA system before working on or around it. Make sure you have read the IMA service precaution before doing repairs or service.
  • Before removing the engine/transmission, read the Service Precautions for the IMA System. Refer to the service information.
  • To avoid damaging the wiring and terminals, unplug the wiring connectors carefully while holding the connector portion.
  • Mark all wiring and hoses to avoid misconnection at reassembly. Also, be sure that they do not contact other wiring or hoses, or interfere with other parts.

The following electronic service manual procedures have been used in full or in part within this service bulletin.  For more detail on these procedures and torque specifications, refer to the electronic service manual.

  1. Turn the battery module switch OFF.
  2. Remove the windshield wipers and cowl cover.
  3. Relieve the fuel pressure.
  4. Drain the radiator. Drain the coolant from the engine block by removing the rear drain plug on the backside of the block.

NOTE: Collect coolant in a clean container for re-use. Reinstall the 28 mm drain bolt using a new washer when coolant is completely drained.

  1. Disconnect the negative cable from the 12-volt battery.
  2. Remove the air cleaner assembly.
  3. Remove the intake manifold, and leave the throttle body in place.
  4. Remove the eight ignition coils.
  5. Disconnect the following engine wire harness connectors and wire harness clamps from the cylinder head:
  6. Remove the harness holder and disconnect the breather hose.
  1. Remove the fuel pipe nut and the fuel pipe clamp. Hold a shop towel around the fuel pipe as fuel will leak out while disconnecting.

  1. Remove the cam chain.

 

CYLINDER HEAD REMOVAL AND INSPECTION

  1. Remove the cylinder head bolts. To prevent warpage, loosen the bolts in sequence 1/3 turn at a time. Repeat this sequence until all of the bolts are removed.
  2. Remove the cylinder head and visually inspect the head of the valves on the combustion side of the cylinder head for damage.

NOTE: This is only a visual inspection looking for damage to the valves.

  • If any of the valves show any signs of damage, replace the cylinder head and go to CYLINDER BORE INSPECTION.
  • If the valves are ok, go to step 3.
  1. Visually inspect each of the spark plugs for damaged or melted pieces of the center electrode or ground electrode.
    • If any of the spark plug shows signs of damage, remove the valve closest to the damaged plug from the cylinder head and go to step 4.
    • If the spark plugs are ok, go to CYLINDER BORE INSPECTION.
  2. Visually inspect the cylinder head valve seat and the valve seat face for damage.
    • If there are any signs of damage (physical or local heat buildup) replace the cylinder head and go to CYLINDER BORE INSPECTION.
    • If the valves and valves seats are ok, reassemble the cylinder head, and go to CYLINDER BORE INSPECTION.

 

CYLINDER BORE INSPECTION

  1. Check the cylinder walls by rubbing your fingernail or a pencil with light pressure perpendicular to any vertical scratches that are in the cylinder bore.
  • If your fingernail or a pencil does not catch on the scratches, the cylinder block is OK. Go to INSTALLATION OF ENGINE SUPPORT.
  • If your finger nail or pencil catches on the scratches, replace the engine short block. Go to SHORT BLOCK REPLACEMENT to replace the engine.

NOTE:

  • If the short block is replaced, it already has the counter-measured pistons and rings installed.
  • The oil pans that come with the short block aren’t fully sealed. There is a gasket inside the oil pan that needs to be installed before sealing the oil pan. For more information, refer to PIB 16-0001.

REMOVAL OF PISTONS AND RODS

NOTE: Before and during removal of pistons, rods, and caps, mark each piston top with the cylinder number and direction mark towards the front of the engine.

  1. Prepare your work bench with a number location for each piston rod assembly to ensure the rods and caps are not mixed as they are not interchangeable. The numbers stamped across the side of the rod and cap does not indicate the cylinders they came from; they are a manufacturing number.
  2. Install the crank pulley and the key on the crank without the bolt.
  3. Beginning with cylinder No. 2 and 3 at Bottom Dead Center (BDC), rotate the crank slightly until the rod cap bolts align with the holes on the main bearing cap bridge. Mark the caps to the rods with a grease pen as shown below.

Mark the caps to the rods with a grease pen

 

  1. Using a ¼ inch drive 8 mm 12-point socket (Snap-On TMMD8 or equivalent), loosen and remove the rod caps for cylinders No. 2 and 3, then set the caps on the bench next to the corresponding numbers.

remove the rod caps for cylinders No. 2 and 3

 

  1. Using a wooden or plastic handled hammer, gently push the pistons and rod assemblies No. 2 and 3 out of the short block.
  2. Rotate the crankshaft 180 degrees, then repeat steps 3, 4, and 5 on cylinders No. 1 and 4.
  3. Visually inspect all connecting rod bearings for signs of damage.
