    Hoping our 8th gen community has an answer to this! Over the last couple of months, my accord has progressively been having a really hard time "starting" (2008 3.5L V6 AT 150k). Starting the engine is hardest when the car has been sitting in hot weather but I'm noticing that it doesn't matter...

    So i do a monthly inspection and i see this: I think "no biggie, i've got that warranty with the dealer". And as you probably already suspected: it's not covered. I've been in there three times with issues and none of them were covered. I wonder what even is covered with this warranty the...

    It's about time for me to switch out my spark plugs on my Accord and was curious which you guys were running and how you felt about them. Really curious if the NGK Ruthenium HX ($8.46) and Laser Iridium ($9.05) are worth their price over the Iridium IX ($5.11).

    I'm a relatively new Accord owner and I'm wanting to change the transmission fluid on my '17 V6 Accord. Obviously I don't want to screw this up so I wanted to ask a few questions before I got down into it. Where exactly is the ATF drain plug located? And what size socket do I need to use? What...

    I have a 2018 LX, and I want to replace or modify my NON-heated stock mirrors with HEATED ones. I've done a lot of research and know the stock wiring harness isn't going to be plug-and-play (sadly). The additional (2) wires aren't in the LX harness. That said, would it be possible to replace...

    Hello I am moving from California to New Mexico for school and plan on taking my car. I drive a 2006 Honda Accord, 2.4L 4 cylinder engine. Mileage is ~141000. The road trip is ~1115 miles, and the Honda has no history of engine problems, accidents, or other issues. I plan on changing out the...

    Hey guys, I have a 2013 Coupe EX-LV6, so it has the "premium" sound system, which I quickly realized is not premium at all in how it sounds. Since I'm in the car at least 2 hours every weekday, I really want to upgrade the audio system, but I don't know where to start. I want to do things one...

    I am working on my wife's 2012 V6 Accord Coupe Automatic. I am a long-time wrench turner but for almost a decade I have been a European-only guy, so I am not exactly super familiar with the idiosyncrasies of Honda/Acura or even Asian makes. The car is sitting right at 59K miles and I was tasked...

    So a screw decided to commit suicide in my tire yesterday and I wanted to do a video on a tire tool I use called the Dynaplug. I also show how to properly plug a tire and the situations when you may not want to repair the tire that way. Enjoy!

    Owner of a 2015 Honda Accord Sport manual transmission. I work in a garage so I do all my maintenance myself. I have roughly 46k on it already, and I notice that I was getting vibration and a squealing sounds from my braking system. So I brought my car in and put it in the air. I did a lateral...

It's half the price of the oem floor mats (only $55 dollars!)and it looks very nice and fits perfect in my 2014 Honda Accord EX-L V6 Sedan. It arrived in...

    The following link has a DIY guide for water pump and thermostat replacement for a 4CYL 2007 Accord. It is a pretty easy job and might be a good "starter" repair for someone interested in getting started doing their own repairs. The only challenging aspect is probably the tight spaces which...

    My primary goal is to add an auxiliary port to my 07' Accord EX-L V6 (w/ NAVI). Bluetooth would be a nice addition so I can use my steering wheel controls to change songs. iPod adapter isn't important since I don't own many apple products. I am currently looking online and considering the...

    Hey All - I received my katzkin kit today, very high quality. I've installed a kit years ago on a Jeep but this kit looks to have more pieces - which I assume are door inserts (fabric on far left of image) and perhaps front arm rest? I've attached a picture but am not certain - seems odd...

    Okay, so the first mods to the RSX-S I had was to swap the OE intake air filter for a K&N Drop-In. But that's usually as far as my intake mods went because of two things: 1.) The threat of hydrolock with a cold-air intake living in Florida 2.) Power robbing heat soak with a short-ram intake...

    As some of you know, the 14/15 Accord Hybrids were left without fog light love. This is presumably because the driver side fog light opening is used as a vent intake for the heat exchanger that cools the hybrid system. I don't really need fog lights, though living near the coast it does get a...
