    How'd you like to see a Technical Service Bulletin like this?

    Saw this in one of my previous Popular Mechanics magazines. Finally getting around to post it.....

    I'll quote it directly:

    Is there an unexplained, unfindable engine oil leak in your 1997-2002 Acura V6? Technial Service Bulletin (TSB) 01-041 tells your mechanic how to find it and fix it by - get this - covering up any porous places in the aluminum engine block with epoxy to keep oil from seeping through.
    kinda scary if you ask me....

    Maybe the TSB means that a bunch of hondas made it out of the factory with porus bits on the block. From what I've gleaned off the various Honda web forums I visit, V6 hondas seem the most problematic (except for the NSX). Bad trannys, etc.
