  1. The 7th Generation
    My Accord 2005 EX 175k miles, when I start it in the morning I have to let it idle for 10 minutes until temp guage goes to the middle. If I don't do it, then when I select D in the transmission the first engage shifts very hard and also second and third. But If I let it warm enought it shifts...

    Hi! It was really cold tonight and the transmission seems to have lost most if its fluid all of a sudden. Drove off but didn't get very far before the D symbol started flashing and the engine, vsa, and low tire pressure symbols lit up. Crawled back to the parking lot and found this mess of...

    Here's how to replace the windshield washer sensor on your Accord. The procedure is similar to many other vehicles that use a reed switch for the tank sensor. A common issue is the windshield washer low level sensor light illuminates on the dash, despite the washer fluid being full and...

    I decided to put a Fumoto oil drain valve on my 2010 Accord LX with manual transmission for convenience. The F106N valve screws in place of the oil drain plug without problem. There is no need for an extension adapter. While at it, I also decided to put Fumoto valves on the manual...

  6. The Early Generations
    I wanted to get you guys initial thought on my situation with my car. After repairing a blown head gasket and putting everything back in place which was a real pain in the ass I noticed a very huge fluid leak when I started up my car. It’s coming from “what looks to be” under the aluminum...

    I bought my '07 EX automatic with 96k on it about 3 1/2 years ago. It's got just under 187k on it now, and I've never done a tranny fluid change (my own fault; I know I should've done it about 50k ago). Lately I've noticed it feels like the shifts are a little harder sometimes, so I want to...

    Hi all, Sorry if this has been discussed but I could not find anything from searching, here or on Google (at least for the Accord). Anyway, I have a 2005 V6 coupe and pretty much ever since I bought the car (4 months ago) I have noticed the brake pedal is very high, as in a few inches higher...

    The maintenance minder on my Accord threw a code 3 at ~63,000 miles. Code 3 means that I have to change the transmission fluid. The owner's manual states: Driving in mountainous areas at very low vehicle speeds or trailer towing results in higher transmission and transfer temperatures. This...

    I've got a 99 Honda Accord V6 automatic EX. I recently replaced the transmission fluid. In order to find out how much fluid was drained I took a 5 qt motor oil 5w-30 container, emptied it out, then put the dirty transmission fluid in it. It read 3 1/2 quarts. I only bought 3 quarts. So, I...
