  1. The 7th Generation
    Hey guys, just want to pick your brains. I've got an '05 Accord EX 4 cyl sedan with 143K miles. Regular oil changes every 5K miles. So really over the past year I've noticed the engine seems to be losing HP and struggling a little more to get up to speed, especially on hills. It's not...
