    Hi All, So I went over a large pot hole a couple of weeks back. It was extremely bad got out immediately and checked and nothing seemed wrong so i just went my way carefully. Lately I've been noticing that my steering wheel was a bit heavy and obviously recognized immediately that pothole...

    Hey everyone :) The problem I'm having is incredibly hard to explain, hence the plethora of photos. Basically, there is a spot near my power steering pump (not sure what it is called) and the pulley on the power steering pump is digging into that. I've been googling non stop but can't find a...

    I was replacing my struts in my 2003 LX I4 when the head of a bolt on this part came off. Calling every parts store in my area, no one could understand what I was talking about. I'm referring to the horse-shoe shaped, wishbone looking, forked piece that the bottom of the strut slides into...
  7. Maintenance & Detailing
    Hi, I just recently left a stick of deodorant in a gym bag in my front seat and the thing melted and oozed out through the bag and onto the passenger seat. I tried to clean the leather and it basically removed the color from the seat. Now my car is a 2009 Accord Coupe EX-L with heated seats...
  8. Problems & Solutions
    Please pardon any obvious repeat discussion. I've attempted a search with no luck. Long story, short. I bought a 2009 Accord EX 2.4 with 162k miles on it from a Toyota dealer in early March. The dealer changed the oil prior to my purchase. Two days after buying the car, I had my local Honda...

    Even though I degreased the back of my motor, I did see some motor oil either seeping or remaining at the seal of the oil pan. I did recently change the oil, so it always gets messy when I remove the filter. Is the 2005 i4 auto oil pan removable without removing the engine or subframe? Looks...

    So I bought an '11 LX with just 55k miles on it for about 11 thousand plus taxes and fees. Today (just a few days later) I was in a parking lot and was on my way out when another '98 Accord hit me hard from the side at about 30mph. Both front and rear airbags were deployed on the right side...

    Hi everyone, Car: 2000 Accord LX 2.3 MT Issue 1: Oil Leak Vtec Solenoid (yes, Im 100% sure). Issue 2: I'm too lazy. I mostly drive my car very economically and don't ever rev it past 3000 rpm. So my question is, if I don't use Vtec (by not revving high), does the engine oil still flow...

    I have some paint chips/scratches I am looking to repair on my car and my girlfriends civic using Honda touch up pens. I was wondering if anyone here has experience using them and what is the best practice to apply these touch ups so that they may come out smooth or to ensure the paint is...

    So from my earlier post I indicated my 2014 sustained some pretty good hail damage. I finally picked my vehicle up from a known reputable PDR repair place and inspected it closely - is this normal? The hail spots are all gone and looks great, but the way the work was performed makes me wonder...

    2011 ex-l sedan was rear ended while stopped at a red light. It looks like only the rear bumper and exhaust need to be repaired/replaced. Everyone is ok and Im sure the other party's insurance will cover all damages. However, Im concerned that the structural integrity of the car has been...
