I haven't seen one of these threads where anyone can just post what thy have done to their Accords. If there is a similar thread please let me know thanks. It's usually a stickie

Today I bought a new jack :) for the new 01 accord ex and changed oil and transmission fluid.
installed new headlight housing
a double din Bluetooth pioneer DVD also threw in 5k hid.

(this all wasn't today, but you get the idea)

I finally got around to changing the spark plugs. They were the original ones in my '02 and at 166k miles, greatly overdue. They looked surprisingly good for their age, with no gunk buildup and the gapping still looked spot on.

Fixed the intermittent odometer, replaced the D4 light bulb in the instrument cluster, changed the ATF, and fixed the sloppy windshield wiper arm (bad bushing).

Today I found out I have a factory alarm. Haha I locked my doors and then tried to open from the inside and it went off.

I'm wanting to get a remote for it, mine did not come with one and don't want to go to the stealership I I can figure out how to program it myself.

I ran mine up to 481 miles on a single tank of gas (holy cow!!) :biggrin:before chickening out and stopping to pull out the 2 gallon gas can in the trunk and draining it into the gas tank. I read too many internet articles and posts yesterday telling me I was a BAD, BAD, BAD, BAD person to let my car run out of gas.....:paranoid:

17 gallon gas tank X 30 MPG = 510 miles per tank theoretically

I was trying to do two things: 1) find out how far I could get on one tankfull and 2) see if a low fuel light would come on since I replaced the bulb.
The light never came on so I must assume my car doesn't have this feature since I must have been down to 1 gallon left in the tank (fuel gage needle was BELOW the E line!).

You know, if you got a FULL 17 gallons of gas from your car, then that would mean that you ompletely emptied out your tank. Realistically, the car will eat up at most 16.5 gallons at most since there will still be a little bit of fuel left in the tank before running out of gas.

Last weekend, I did
1) Change engine oil + filter
2) Change ATF after 16 K miles. Drain plug was covered with 1 mm layer of fine black powder.
3) Turn star wheels on 2 rear brakes because the parking brake lever was going up too far for my taste.
4) Rotate 4 tires.
