No, it will not hurt your vehicle. There are other vehicles as you've stated in your excerpt which it might, for the reasons given. Yours is not one of them. There are a couple of caveats: Be aware of is the codes for the radio. Ensure you have them before removing the battery. Along those lines, you'll most likely lose all of your radio settings as well. ...

I think before undertaking any more work it's best to do a full scan and check for any codes and then check the live data to see if the parameters are all in the expected range. Checking the usual air/fuel/spark related parameters and also performing a compression test will give you a lot more info otherwise you might be wasting too much time and money ...

Honda calls for their brand of anti-freeze but it's the standard (often "green" but color may vary across manufacturer) ethylene glycol-based stuff. Personally, however, I like EngineICE or similar "safe" propylene-glycol-based coolants since they are not poisonous. I know EngineICE meets all the same specifications that ethylene gloycol-based coolants ...

This is most definitely a sensor issue. I state that because of the drop in the graph. It looks as though the engine comes up to temperature, then the sensor stops putting out the correct temp reading. Most temperature sensors work on a resistance basis. As the temperature it is reading goes up, the resistance gets higher, and the computer computes this ...

Is the upper radiator hose hot to touch after you have been driving,if yes the reading is clearly wrong(60-80F is less than hand warm). If the hose is cold your thermostat might be stuck open,so the reading might be correct. You can test the temparature by turning on the heater while driving. does it blow hot air if yes the temparature reading must be ...

If the car starts with a jump you either have a poor connection between the battery and the terminals or a battery with insufficient cranking amperage (wrong battery or failing battery). I'd start with the basics get a battery post and terminal brush and make sure everything is very clean then resecure the battery leads and retest. Battery Post And ...

Off hand, I'd have to blame this on using non-adaptive cruise control in snow when driving uphill. Even with the chains on the front (and assuming front wheel 2WD), the cruise sensors could be misinterpreting wheel spin vs. ground speed. With 4WD and chains only on the front, I've got to imagine that this discrepancy would be more pronounced. Perhaps the ...

The Prestone Synthetic Asian formulation power steering fluid for Honda is $6.99 for a 10 oz bottle at Walmart. I flushed my '06 Accord ps system with two bottles at 130K. Another few K and I'll flush it with another bottle. Also bought a case of DW-1 ATF for under $100. Drain and fill every 50K. Cheap insurance.

It sure sounds as though your passenger-side wheel bearing is shot. Get it checked and if it's bad, replace both side as they tend to wear out together.

It's not a good idea to use most oils on rubber that is not designed to come in contact with oil, since the oil can cause the rubber to swell and become soft. This could have caused your windows to stick again. Silicone grease (spray) is the correct lubricant to use. Don't use sewing machine oil. From Wikipedia - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...
