    2005 honda civic water leak

    The fastest way to find the leak is to use a spray powder, something like Dr Scholls. Spray the powder above where you can see the leak, then put the car under the sprinkler again. Then go dash diving again to follow the water trail upward; spray the powder higher each time you repeat the...

    2000 honda accord se 2.3L with srs light on solid

    The most common problem for setting the SRS light in your model is the seat belt latch switch. Because it is a seat belt part it is covered for the life of the car under warranty. FREEBIE Head to your local dealer and see what they say the codes are, you can always tell them 'NO' if they want...

    Honda ignition parts - is genuine Honda advised?

    I'd say go for the throttle plate clean, and you can also take the 2-12mm bolts out of the IAC valve and move it off the throttle body enough to spray out the screen on it. Just don't let any dummies tell you to take the throttle body off and dunk it in cleaner [attachment deleted by admin]

    Civic Torque Converter Code

    The solenoids have a screen on them, I would say to first remove each one and be sure the screens are clean. You can gently remove them from the solenoid and spray them out with brake cleaner. The solenoids are attached to the side of the trans case, usually with 2-3 10mm bolts. While you have...

    91 Acura Integra battery light comes on and engine bogs down only when fan is on

    Will the battery light come on if you turn on the rear window defroster? That might help prove if the ALT is not putting out enough power or there is a short somewhere. If you have a cheapo multi meter you can see if there is 14 volts at the battery terminals/connectors when the engine is...

    1984 toyota 22r

    Seems like every one I've done, the cam sprocket won't line up just perfectly. If you put it all togther and the cam sprocket mark seems 1/2 tooth retarded you are okay.

    2002 honda odyssey egr problem

    Well TSB is not warranty, so you probably are being told that american honda will not warranty canadian vehicles and that is true. There is a chance that the pintle in the valve is sticking and causing the code, might be worth the effort to remove the valve and blast it out with Berrymans B-12...

    99 Honda 2.3

    I think you are going to need to go to the dealer, the older immobilizer systems had a trick so you could start and drive one trip. something like turn on the key, step on the brake pedal 5 times, then crank the car over and drive to the dealership. The dealer tech will have to run a VIN status...
