This question already has an answer here:
I drive a 2011 Honda Odyssey. The last time I had my oil changed, they neglected to reset the oil change indicator (relevant because I'm assuming it would have come back on sooner when my oil level dropped but it didn't occur to me that my oil level could drop so excessively in a short period of time with no oil leak).
I've learned today that these vehicles have a problem with excessive oil consumption. I learned this as a result of finding my engine light on this morning. I drove straight to my oil change place so they could hook it up to the diagnostic machine and had my oil changed. Turns out I only had about 1.5 quarts of oil running through it.
The van seems to be running fine but the engine light is still on. The codes it gave are P3400 and P3497. P3497 is a service bulletin indicating a need for a software update to address the excessive oil consumption so I don't expect the light to go off until we've had a chance to do that but I'm wondering if there's a chance that I did irreparable damage to the engine driving it with so little oil. Would it be obvious or could something still happen like throwing a rod?
