1999 Honda Accord Question: The car is leaking oil onto the driveway, I just bought the car

 

Question

Debbitx, 2.3L 4 Cylinder, Fredericksburg, TX, November 05, 2013, 21:21
 Rookie

We drove the car home to Fredericksburg from a dealership near San Antonio. It seemed to have clean repair records and nice interior and exterior. After having had it for less than a week, I noticed an oil spot on the driveway. The check Engine light and the oil light came on. I took it to WalMart garage, only to find out they couldn't tell me anything. They noticed it was leaking oil, added oil and sent me on my way. I have an appointment on Thursday to get a repair estimate. Any advice????

    Just wait until your car is checked out tomorrow, get that information and post the results. There is a Honda tech. here and he can/may advise further. 2.3 VTEC engine? How many miles and do you have any service or repair records?
