Find a small flat head screw driver, heat it up and before it cools, stick it in to the plastic screw. It will melt a slot enough for you to back the screw out

The answer was both. The battery had died and died short, which over time messed up the alternator. I was fine for a while because the alternator only acted up at high heat. Had to replace both the battery, the alternator, and the battery wiring (too badly corroded to get off the old battery.) The moral of the story is to change your battery from time to ...

An 8 year old battery is definitely due for replacement and could very well be the issue. A quick and easy way to test the alternator after you have installed the new battery is to use a volt meter. I used to work at Interstate Battery and we would do it after every battery install to make sure the new battery would be getting a proper charge. You simply put ...

Pull the battery, take it to a shop and ask them to perform a discharge test. They might want to keep it in to charge it overnight, or you might want to charge it with an external car battery charger yourself. If the battery passes the discharge test, then you could have a faulty alternator.

Assuming everything else is ok, like clutch disk springs, gearbox, differential, and joints, maybe you should change the original rubber engine and gearbox mounts with polyurethane ones.

This Answer assumes that the battery and starter motor are in good shape, and that the starter turns the engine over in a brisk and healthy fashion. If the cranking is sluggish, that needs to be addressed before continuing. If the cranking is brisk, then proceed onward: The motor needs three things to run: spark, air, and fuel. Assuming that a bird hasn't ...

I had the same issue. When I put the car in reverse or when the air condition is on maximum, there is a noisy vibration. I had it checked out by the Honda dealer. The mechanic drove it around and did not feel or hear the vibration. The service guy took me and my husband to the back to see if we could identify the noise. We did and they determined it was ...
