The Honda Type 2 Coolant contains "NO Silicate and borates," and that is the key. What they probably used was the cheap Prestone from Walmart. Now, that's a pretty good coolant nowadays, but the chemical composition is slightly different. Will it have an impact? Hard to say, probably minimal. Your biggest risk is warranty compliance, but seeing as how you're ...

If (as per your comments) you're looking to deaden road noise as opposed to engine noise then you aren't going to see much improvement from installing/up grading the under-bonnet sound insulation. The sound deadening under the carpet and inside the doors is more the area you want to look at - however there's a great deal of effort involved there in taking ...

It has a duplicate battery model for other vehicle makes/models but some specifically call for a Battery model that's starts with R which is an identical battery with reverse terminals. When the wrong battery is selected in the battery manual catalog and is connected, it blows a five dollar battery fuse under ...

The fact that the copper wire is there to bulk out space between the lug and the clamp shouldn't stop the car having jump leads and starting, as they will connect straight to the car wiring. But, as said already, the whole clamp could do with changing anyway. There's not much connecting area between it and the battery lug. When you connect jump leads try to ...

The other answer could be that in the past someone connected an extra wire to feed some add-on device in a very poor manner. Instead of getting a ring connector crimped onto the wire or tapping into a connector on a fusebox they could 'simply' have stripped the end of the wire. loosened the clamp and stuffed the wire between the post and the clamp. And then ...

The main reason those would be sticking out of your battery post/terminal is because the terminal clamp has become too stretched. Someone put the copper wire in there to take up the slack of the clamp. Without them you'd lose connection and the battery would not provide the power to get the car started as well as the system having the ability to charge the ...

From a circuit diagram I have found on the internet (if it is correct for your car), it looks like there is a pair of headlight relays in a fuse box under the hood. These relays switch the +12V to the headlights. It looks to me that if one of the relays fails, then the +12 will find its way through all 4 bulbs making them all light when switched to high ...
