It could be an electrical problem. I used to have a similar problem with a 1993 Honda Prelude. The car wouldn't start after a short journey especially on hot days. I had my mechanic look at it, but they never found anything wrong with it because the problem would never occur while they had the car. Sometimes I would drive the car to the petrol station fill ...

The probability of fuel contamination is a possibility, but I would have thought that if it was the case, the vehicle would have shut down and would not have been able to be restarted. I would be inclined to think that you have a failing component. As it is apparently an intermittant fault I would be run the vehicle with a data logger attached to track a ...

it would be easiest to have it welded back together, but there's a wire that runs from your antennae down through the frame, behind the dashboard..you have to like cut it, and tie the new one on, and fish it through. then i think there's a connector at the end. it's been a while. very difficult if you don't fish it through.

i had the same issue ended up changing the wheel bearing and was able to remove the ABS sensor but after re-installed the sensor gave out and the ABS light came on. ended up spending extra $120 for a new sensor. good luck ..update the other wheel bearing started making the noise 2 years later. time to repeat the process

I have a CBR600 F4 - which is essentially the same engine but with carburettors instead of injection. On cold start, just a small amount of choke adjustment will cause high revs (i.e 3000+) versus sitting at 1500-2000. As I have a manual choke, I'll warm it up at 1800-2000 RPM and then go easy riding it until temp gauge comes into the zone. Factory idle for ...

The last vehicle in the USA to use a carb was the Susuki Jimmy in 1993. Your air filter element is bonded together with petro-chemical adhesives, and a lot of filters have a petro-chemical treatment to enhance thier performance. Soaking the filter in petrol can only be detrimental to the filter. Your best bet is to change the filter to avoid any possibility ...

If it was just a normal paper filter it is fine. If it is a re-usable washable filter then then I would suggest a wash and oiling procedure according to the manufacturer instructions.

If your 2006 Civic is anything like mine, there is a section in your owner's manual entitled "Towing a trailer" which should answer your first question. In mine it says to use D on level roads and D3 in hilly terrain. It would be wise to read that section carefully and completely as it contains many essential safety instructions. In particular, in mine ...

An intermittant like you have described can be an absolute nightmare to track down. A visual inspection of the engine management system for loom damage or corrosion, contamination or oiling of plugs. You can connect a data logger onto the vehicle to record any mis-function when it does not start. A OEM scanner may also reveal the fault. Main suspects for me ...

While this is not "scientific data", I did find some empirical data on the subject from this website. The author talks about his experience with the Honda Pilot and its VTM-4 system: Reading about VTM-4, the way I understood it to work was this... Under normal conditions, the VTM-4 system is FWD biased and transfers power/torque to the rear as ...

Because of the age of your vehicle you will need to take the effect of corrosion into account as well as the possibility of a loose connection. Using a wiring diagram, a check over of the supply and earth wiring is required of the controls that are failing.

This is a (rather annoying, imho) characteristic with this particular bike. It doesn't happen with "all bikes", although some may be slightly higher when turning the engine on after a cold night. The Honda CBR 600 F4i, particularly in cold weather, tends to rev it's nuts off for the first few minutes (it's the automatic choke) until it warms up and calms ...
