    Had my mechanic replace the VVTS on my 03' Accord yesterday to stop a slow oil leak and refill with full synthetic oil. It was driving fine until I got up to speed on the highway. Right about when I hit 70 mph the clutch started slipping. I took it back to the mechanic but want to make sure he...

    I just did a video review of the oil analysis from my 2nd oil change on my 2015 Accord LX. I submitted samples to Blackstone and Oil Analyzers. Check it out.

    First time doing a test on my oil was surprised about the high lead that was found, sorry about the blurry picture of the report. Comments from Blackstone: Thanks for the note about the oil consumption. Really, the loss of 1 quart of oil in 4,000 miles doesn't seem all that unusual, but if...

    I'll be doing the first oil change on my 9th generation Accord very soon and I was wondering if I'm required to change the washer that goes on the drain plug each time. I just bought a 5 qt. jug of Valvoline fully synthetic oil at WalMart and a couple of filters from Amazon. The only thing I...

    Greetings, I use the OEM Honda Oil Filters # 15400-PLM-A01 and 15400-PLM-A02. Is there a source to buy a oil filter wrench that fits these rather small filters? Either OEM or aftermarket is fine as long as the fit is there. Thanks!

    I have a 06 Accord VP with AT with 55k miles on it. I recently (@54k miles) got the oil changed to M1-EP 5w-30, with M1-EP filter. Before the oil change, when I step on the gas, the RPM would barely reach 2200 before the gears shifted. But, after the oil change, the RPM goes over 3000 before...

    My 2002 Honda Accord LX just hit 80,000 miles about 6 weeks after I purchased it (used of course). I would like to make the switch over to Synthetic from conventional motor oil. I have always been told not to do this after a certain mileage, but the actual cut-off changes based on who I talk...

    My 2009 Accord Sedan I4 turns one on a week and still has the original oil. There's only 2700 miles on it. I've seen the comments on keeping the original oil in place until the MM lights up and others saying to change it at 3750. I've seen nothing on "time". Oil degrades over time, but...

    In the beginning of May the check engine light would come on when the gas got low. When we filled the tank the check engine light would go off. Now it pretty much stays on all the time and I don't know what's wrong with it. Lately you have to press harder on the gas pedal to get the car to go...
