    ut Techinfo says to change the crush washer for the cylinder block coolant drain plug. Has anybody done a coolant change on the hybrid? Anybody know the specs of said washer?

    My wife has a 2013 Accord (93k miles) that we have normally had an oil change every 6 months (when oil life is 30%. Yes, I know, I could go longer but its so easy to remember). I don't use the car - how does the MM alert you to jobs that need to be done? I push the button on the instrument...

    So I have a 1998 Honda Accord EX v6 and it’s been consistently leaking coolant for a few weeks now but I’ve kept my levels of coolant at a good level I check it every morning only over heated one time and I immediately pulled over and let it cool down and refilled my radiator but I noticed the...

    If I were to accidentally drop a little drop of engine oil in the coolant reservoir overflow tank, would that cause any damage? Like the size of a single droplet of rain. Just curious. It may be a dumb question. Thanks.

    Just got a new used car and noticed that the coolant was below the minimum mark. I want to top it off or even drain and fill it myself, but I’m not sure what coolant/antifreeze the previous owner used. Would you recommend me flushing it in order to get all the old coolant out just in case it is...

    Hello! Today, I flushed and added coolant to my 2007 Honda Accord 4 cyl. When I started my car up, I noticed my heat wasn't working. After running the car for a while, still nothing. My temperature gauge was acting weird, too. So, seeing as something was wrong, I investigated. I found some...

    Hi everyone ... I want to run this by all of you. On December 20th 2017 I came home and over the next few hours all of my coolant leaked out onto my garage floor. I found the leak in the lower radiator hose which was replaced in January. (I did not drive the car at all until it was replaced.)...

    I'm no mechanic but I was underneath my Accord today and happened to notice that the line coming from the radiator looks moist and corroded. Although I don't appear to be losing any coolant at the moment, I've posted a picture because I'm curious if this looks like something which will go any...

    I'm currently having issues with a rough start of my 2006 Accord I4. The driving of the car is fine. The idling of the car is typically fine, having occasional sputtering immediately after the rough start. The rough start seems to be unaffected by the climate. I'm in SoCal and its been ~70...

    Hi everyone, My 2016 Honda Accord Sport has about 5,000 miles, and I only smell coolant from the hood of the car when going up hill. I don't smell anything on regular driving conditions. Is anyone else facing the same issue? Thanks!

    I'm a new driver (10 months) and my 2005 Honda Accord hybrid is my first car. It started off with no issues whatsoever but in the past few months they've been coming in one after another! So first off, a couple months back my check engine light went on and I went to check the codes. The results...

    I'm no weekend mechanic as this is my first vehicle, but I've done a fair amount of research on this issue and would say I have a beginner level understanding of my car's mechanics. This issue seems very unique as I can't find any threads with my specific situation, only similar issues. This has...

    I bought a used accord a little more than a year ago but I believe that fits for any honda owners. My car has green coolant in it and has been running fine. but I wanted to know is that any long term affect on the car if i use green coolant? I know that most people use the Honda Brand type...

    Just bought my first accord this past summer, first honda, really. It's a 96 non vtec lx. Thing is a tank, let me tell you. I've put it through some shit that would kill lesser cars and it still lives. Winter is here in Fargo and it's cold as balls, my heat has been having issues, I can't find...

    My Accord is a 2005, 4cyl, 2-dr LX with 66K miles. The manual says "replace engine coolant" at 120K miles or 10 years. We're at 10 years. I've never changed the coolant. My service center is great except for one thing - they push flushes of every kind on you and it takes careful attention...

    So I've had the idea to wrap both my intake and exhaust pipes with various materials to control engine bay temperatures. When it gets a bit warmer, I'm going to be wrapping my intake with Reflect-A-Gold and wrap my exhaust downpipe with Titanium Exhuast wrap. This also got me thinking of...

    Hi. Been reading a number of threads on the blue vs green coolant subject(s). Need to top off my 2013 and have pretty much been sold to use/stick with the honda blue. A question I didn't see talked about was shelf life for coolant (or the honda blue.) Idea is, I'll get this coolant now to...

    I'm getting a faint odor of antifreeze just after start-up. I'm going to have it looked at during the first service, but wanted to see if anyone else was catching a whiff. It only lasts for a 10-15 seconds and it's gone.... seems to happen on particularly hot days, so I'm thinking a minor...

    I have 2013 accord sedan and on Friday I noticed that the antifreeze reservoir is on low level. A friend of mine told me that's normal and I shouldn't fill it up. Does he make sense or I need to be concern and add the honda antifreeze apparently it's a special fluid only sold at the dealer...

    I have a '06 EX. 111,000 miles. Had the coolant changed with the water pump at 100k and the filters are were changed in October. I have some sort of bad exhaust type air coming through the car..makes me want to choke. I find it a little hard to drive comfortably. It is cold and hard not to put...
