    Hello, I own a 2008 Honda Accord EX-L with a 5 speed automatic V6 J35z2. I recently blew the engine and have been looking for a replacement. I haven't been able to find a J35z2 very easily and if/when I do it is usually very expensive ($6k-$8k). However, I've found a lot of J35a's at a...

    A year agoI needed a new battery for my 2014 Honda Accord EX-L. I didn't want to pay the dealership price for their expensive labor, and also have to listen to a 20 minute discussion with the service manager trying to up-sell me a bunch of services I don't need. So I had a local mechanic do the...

    A couple weeks ago I got into an accident in my 97 accord causing the front end of my car to bend in a bit. This in turn caused one of the plastic tubes on the top tank to break off making a hole. I've been working hard to get back on my feet after some unfortunate circumstances so I'm low on...

    Hello, I paid Safelite Autoglass to replace the cracked windshield. There is about half inch gap in some spots on the bottom and on the sides between the windshield glass and the rubber or rubberized plastic, that I did not notice in the past.

    Hello everyone. I have a 2001 Honda Accord Ex Vtech, F23A1 with a bad upstream O2 sensor. I have the new Denso sensor.

    So, I have a 2013 Accord Sport 6mt 2.4 and noticed that there are two different models (CVT/MT) for the alternator. I just wanted to inform everyone that you can put a CVT Alternator on a manual car, but not vice versa. The Manual Alternator is rated at 110 amps and the CVT alternator is rated...

    I just replaced the rear shocks and took some pictures along the way in case they are useful to someone else looking to do this. The front OEM struts are not too much more expensive than just buying the shocks, but the rear strut assembly (OEM) is about 3X the price of the shocks alone, so I...

    Hi, I'm new here. I recently acquired a 1990 Accord EX with 160K miles with it. I have some issues with the power windows. Sometimes they get stuck.

    So I have what I assume is the original shift knob, and I'm really not digging it. It feels chintzy in my hand when shifting. Part of this is because the retaining clips on the boot are broken, so the plastic ring at the top clicks against the sides of the stick. But other than that it...
