Engine/gearbox mountings may be worn. Ignition coil(s) starting to fail. Accelerator pedal position sensor starting to wear. Fuel injector intermittant fault. There are many reasons more, so a check over at your repair shop would be recommended.

The latest offerings of OB2 to Android can be a useful quick look tool. With an Elm 327 interface to the diagnostic plug, and software such as Torgue Pro, they will give you fault codes and simulated gauges. iOBD2 is another good offering, and is supplied with specific software for specific vehicle makes. They do not go anywhere near in performance and range ...

I know that Torque recommends one of those $70 adapters, but I bought a generic one from the Chinese equivalent of Amazon for $20 and it's working just fine.

If you wiggled the wires and it restarted, I'd suggest you ensure all of the wires are firmly in place on the cap and on the spark plugs. Since it wouldn't actually start, you should pay close attention to the coil wire. If it were the spark plug wires it would probably start, but would run rough. Seeing as how it would not start at all, this might point to ...

It sounds to me like you probably have a so-called "vacuum" leak. The "hiss" you mentioned is a tell-tale sign, and your air conditioning mode controls (both hot/cold, duct selection, etc.) are controlled by vacuum lines under the hood. At least, everything I just said it true of my Chevy Blazer, so I assume your Honda could have similar engineering. ...

Most modern vehicles are built in the expectation that when being worked on they will be in a repair shop, equipped with service ramps. The is usually a two post ramp, which has four jacking arms. Their arms are placed under the seams of the vehicle, or specific lifting points on them, to raise the vehicle. If you do not have a ramp available, the next best ...

In the first picture where you have the orange circled item ... just to the left of it (in the picture) there is a large bolt which attaches the circled item to the body. This would probably be a good lift point. I've found that anywhere which is going to be used as a bolted mount point is going to be very sturdy. If you are worried about marring the bolt, ...

I am pretty sure this is a wire problem. Open the door and check the cable between door and middle pillar. If everything is fine, check the door lock engine. For example replace it between the right and the left door. If the engine is also fine, I would just bridge the wires with some other door.

When you turn the AirCon on, the AirCon compressor activates. This is seen as a load on the engine by the system electronics. The system reacts to the load by increasing the RPM of the engine, whilst at idle, by its Idle Control Valve. The way to go is a scan of the system to make sure it is working properly electronically, and a check of the compressor. The ...

It sounds like its shaking at higher RPMs. Check plugs, distributor, and exhaust for leaks. Also check your motor mounts. It may be your harmonic balancer. Check to see if its securely in place

Try doing a wheel balance and alignment. If that doesn't help may have to check a mechanic . Spindles could even be bent.

This can some times happen after periods where the car is not driven fast or for long periods of time. Engines can build up junk that will be easily cleared after a 10 min drive on the interstate. there is also the possibility of bad fuel however this is not confirmable. I would stick with the fact that there was excess build up of junk from lots of short ...

The problem could be anything and it is difficult to diagnose without seeing the vehicle. I think the fault can be on the electrical side of things or it a fuel problem.

You can get the CR-V, Pilot, Ridgeline, and Crosstour with the AWD option. Understand that these vehicles will not engage all four wheels at all times. If you are looking for a vehicle where all four wheels are engaged all of the time, I don't think you'll find one, whether it's a Honda or not. 4WD/AWD vehicles are designed with a bias built into the ...

All this discussion and no definitive one way or another. Obviously the auto manufacturers have there arguments and everybody else has there opinions. If Prestone 50/50 extended life is Phosphate, Silicate, Nitrate and Borate f ee and uses demineralized water and is based on OAT and HOAT technoledgy of today, then there really isn't a problem here, is ...
