I've been programming since my early teens and like so many of us, I started Basic on the usual home computers like Atari 800XL, ZX Spectrum etc. "Turned pro" about 20 years ago.

I've been mostly doing C++ during this time, writing anything from device drivers for various operating systems to trading systems for banks.

comment post suspension work alignment, is it absolutely necessary?
The problem is that once you got grit or dirt in the grease, you'll probably have some odd wear on the balljoint if you didn't catch it immediately, so it might be prudent to just swap out the whole balljoint anyway.

comment Which engine part is this?
@Andre, if the reservoir was completely dry you need to find out where it's leaking. Power steering fluid normally doesn't just disappear into thin air.

David, it depends on the type of signal the MAP sensor is putting out, but you'd need the exact specs to check if the measurements that you're seeing are within reason. The OEM workshop manual might show the procedure, or a Honda-specific forum might have a detailed description of it.
