I agree with Paulster2, it's very probably that you have water trapped in your exhaust. After it runs for a few minutes, is there any steam coming out of the tailpipe? A little steam is normal after first start up but after the engine warms up it should stop. If you have a never ending source of steam you can take apart the exhaust system and dump it out ...

I only used CVT fluid. I did a change at 150k then did another change at 180k. I read a lot about once you change the fluid the detergent can break down the build up and then it destroys your transmission. So the second chance it to allow for the break down slug to be drained out. At that time I also swapped out all the plugs. Now I have 330k and I am doing ...

I had a 70cc honda scooter that did the same thing. The voltage regulators on some of their bikes were pretty screwy... the lower the battery voltage, the higher the output voltage from the gen. I measured mine one time without a battery at over 20 volts output! The only solution is to get a battery, or try to find a more appropriate voltage regulator. ...

Total agreement with dobey. Coolant doesn't just disappear. It either goes on the ground (external leak), in the passenger floorboard (heater core), in the engine oil (head gasket), gets burned up (head gasket, or possibly intake gasket), boils off, or it stays put. I won't address any of the stuff that you've done, but I will add: 1: compression test ...

From what I see, the bulb is a 1157A. These are very standard bulbs and can be picked up most anywhere (Walmart, AutoZone, Checkers, O'Reilly's, etc). The "A" in the identification indicates it as an amber bulb. You can find the 1157 which is the same exact bulb without the amber tint.

If you are losing coolant (you say you have to add coolant daily), then there are only two places it can go. Either on the ground or in the engine. Check your oil to see if it's a milky color. If it is, then the oil and coolant are mixing and you will need the engine rebuilt. If not, then you probably won't need to replace the engine. Next, does the exhaust ...

From your question, you have an intermittant fault somewhere on the cooling system. The way forward would be to replace the engines thermostat, making sure the new thermostat is a genuine Honda part. Get on the net if you have too, but make sure it is a genuine Honda part. The next step is an 'Extended Road Test'. The ideal test would be for your mechanic to ...

Without knowing if the bike is 12v or 6v, assuming you don't want to buy a battery, get an LED bulb, they are less apt to blow. Also, does the bike have a voltage regulator?

Honda's Super Handling All Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) is a full-time 4WD system, available on Honda Legend and Honda's luxury brand Acura (models RL, MDX, RDX, TL, ZDX). Cars equipped with Variable Torque Management 4WD (VTM-4) fall somewhere in between. While normally FWD, they engage rear wheels on any acceleration and allow driver to lock all-wheel drive on ...

Check inside the boots on your steering rack. With your vehicle properly supported on jack stands, remove the wheels and take a pair of pliers and squeeze the clamps on the outer collar of the inner tie rod boots on the rack and slide a small pocket screwdriver or something similar CAREFULLY between the tie rod and the boot collar to see if there is any ...

This sounds very much like a fault with your water pump seizing, as it comes across as temperature related. A quick check by your favourite mechanic should tell you more. The power steering fluid will have a 'sort of pungent smell' as normal, which can easily be confused with being 'burnt'.

Honda Civic Hybrid and other CVT transmissions require CVT transmission fluid from Honda. ATF fluid is not for CVT. Also the change interval for the Honda Civic Hybrid CVT fluid is about 30-40 thousand miles (Maintenance Code: B13). My 2008 Honda Civic Hybrid has 144000 miles...

Generally speaking, the dealer should be able to adjust the cost to only perform maintenance on items that are actually needed. They should check the coolant, and other fluids, and only recommend replacing what needs to be replaced. The brake pads may have been replaced already, but the fluid does need to be flushed and replaced every few years, regardless ...

If you find slight scalloping around the outer edges of the worn tires, that's the most probable source of your noise.

Two common sources of water rushing noises are water in one or more of the doors and air in the cooling system causing gurgling in the heater core. For the doors, check the bottom edge of all doors including the lift gate. There are small rubber drains that allow water to drain when it rains. If they become clogged the doors begin to fill with water and can ...

Since you're soliciting thoughts & suggestions... ...it's possible that your Pilot, which has unibody construction, has picked up some water inside its integrated frame, and you actually hear that water moving around inside the frame. I've had that happen before - in my case, a plastic plug was missing and when I drove through a large puddle the frame ...

On a very small fluid loss the first thing is too tighten any hose clips or unions. These can allow the fluid to 'sweat' out of the system. Any clips that show any sign of oil around them require critical attention as the hose at the joining may be starting to perish internally.

There's a leak there somewhere - there are only two places where power steering fluid can go: where it's supposed to go, and where it's not. "Not" means outside of everything, onto the ground & into the air. There aren't any places where it can leak into any other fluid reservoir in the vehicle.

"Maintenance Free" doesn't have anything to do with charging rate or charging frequency. "Maintenance Free" means that the manufacturer didn't provide any means of maintaining the water/acid level in the battery, which means that if a battery boils dry you can only replace it instead of refilling it yourself with water or acid, whichever is appropriate ...

It will most likely be on the fuel side of things. One item to check would be the ECT (engine cooling temperature sensor). Possibly when you start the engine from cold, the ECT is giving a plausible cold engine temperature. After driving and with the engine now hot, if the ECT is still giving a 'cold temp' reading, the engines ECU will supply a very rich ...
