8th gen

  1. The 8th Generation
    Hey, 2008 Accord sedan 4cyl I was driving to work when my CEL came on, the car had no issues previously, I know it’s something to do with the catalytic converter. The only thing right now is my oil life is at 15% (I kept putting it aside, my fault) I won’t use it until I do the oil change in 2...
  2. The 9th Generation
    Hey guys! So I currently have a 99 accord lx sedan and am looking to buy a newer accord. I’m currently looking at either buying an 8th gen(most likely key the 2010-12 one) or a 9th gen(preferably 2014 one). If I want the 9th gen one though I’d have to wait a bit longer to save a bit more to buy...

  4. The 8th Generation
    I'm about 5'4" and I would like a small sedan with a high seating position as my first car. Also are the 8th gen Accords small cars or are they medium size? If they're not small, would the older Honda Civic's be a better option since they're pretty small? Do the older Honda Civic's have high...

    2008 Honda Accord EX V6 Sedan—So the other day I was at a light and all of a sudden the battery light came on and the car would not go forward. Almost like if I was in neutral. The RPM’s went up but the car wouldn’t go. I sat there for a good 3 sec until the car jerked forward and ever so...

    TLDR; How do remove resonator, want more noise? MAF Problem? I know this has been asked a billion times, but I haven't found a detailed video or post about where and how to remove the Resonater on a 2010 V6 Ex-L. I also scanned the repair manual and owners manual, maybe I am blind. I just...

    My 08 Accord while driving idle will fluctuate up and down about 200-300 RPMs. What would be causing that? Also, when I start from a stop it kind of sputters or struggles and most of the time hit it so it goes through the gears quicker if that makes sense. Any suggestions would be appreciated!

  12. The 8th Generation
    Has anyone tried to swap the transmission from an auto to a manual? If so what trans and mounts do you use? Just curious because my Honda doesn’t feel like it has much life left and I’d like to swap out the transmission if and when I pull the motor for a refresh.

    Hello, I own a 2008 Honda Accord EX-L with a 5 speed automatic V6 J35z2. I recently blew the engine and have been looking for a replacement. I haven't been able to find a J35z2 very easily and if/when I do it is usually very expensive ($6k-$8k). However, I've found a lot of J35a's at a...

  18. The 8th Generation
    In the last few weeks my ABS, VSA, and BRAKE lights have been coming on all at once, either right when I start the car, or after I come to a stop for a while (I.e. at the red light or drive thru), usually if I shut the car off they will turn off but they will come back eventually. I had the...

    My Accord didn't come with them and all I can find on eBay or Amazon or carpet mats, mats for coupes or Weathertech Mats which are too expensive. Just wondering where I could find OEM all-season mats for my 2010 Accord EX Sedan
