    2001 Honda CRV oil leak dye test

    Its not the rear main. Transmission access cover to flexplate was taken off today, by me. Clean and dry in there.

The ticking noise only comes on after engine oil is used for some time, as stated in first post. Not when new, so something within the oil additives Mobil One uses is able to last a pretty...
