Had a sports cat fitted today, got it cheap in the summer and decided to have it put on. Exhaust man noticed a leak when he took the plastic floor off beneath the engine.

He said there'd be 'less than an eggcup' a year coming out, but there was still a leak, couldn't guess where from.

Any ideas? Is a 2011 motor out of warranty? 19k on the clock BTW, practically a sunday driving car.

:confused:

He could be wrong of course. But it may be the sump gasket.

Get a second opinion on next service mate and keep an eye on oil level in the mean time.

I suppose Honda would look for the fillings out of your teeth if you're out of warranty? I'll take it to another independent up the road.

How much was the sports cat and where did you purchase it from? Would be thankful for a link as I've had a hard time looking for one for my type s. Also, how much was it?

In regards to your oil leak, never heard of one although I did have a water leak after an unexpected road bump but got sorted for 30 quid!
