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. ...

The fluid you're seeing is pure water. The purpose of at least one of the hoses (which, I can't tell) is to let the water condensed in the AC system fall to ground. An air conditioner reduces the temperature of air, which has moisture. Colder air can hold less moisture, and therefore, it reaches its saturation point when cooled, and the water condenses. ...

That is the way Honda does a lot of their suspension parts. Take for instance, the part below. It isn't sold with bushings, but rather as a complete unit. This is the complete A-Arm from the front end kit for your Jazz (called a "Fit" here in the US). With this in mind, I don't think they are telling you anything out of the ordinary, though it does sound ...

Sounds like the cold start portion of the ignition/fuel system is not functioning correctly. The IACV controls air flow at cold start to give enough air because the engine is not warm enough for optimal combustion, so, you need more fuel and consequently more air to get enough fire to warm up the cold engine components. That is why it will idle higher on ...

There are three possibilities: 1) a defective bulb, each bulb has two filaments so while the high may be fine the low may have failed 2) there is a blown fuse for the RH low beam - some cars have individual fuses left and right 3) the wiring to that bulb is damaged...

Replace the cap. If the car hasn't overheated, don't worry about any possibly damage, there shouldn't be any. Check the coolant level. If low, refill with 50/50 premix Honda coolant (the blue stuff). Some Hondas have issues where if you do not use Honda coolant, it will slowly eat the head gasket and cause it to leak, which will cause you an endless array of ...

Each headlight bulb has two filaments, one for dipped and another for full beam. You can see through the glass of the bulb to check if these have blown. If the plastic is too cloudy to see from the outside you will have to remove the bulb.

No, it should not be like that and it came straight from the factory. Take it to the alignment shop. It's one of the things they do when they align the front end is to ensure the wheel is straight when they are done (or at least they should do that). Tell them when you take it in to have it done what's going on. Also, considering it's off as much as it is, ...

The unused plugs are typically used for other options like GPS or Multi-Disc CD changer, etc. It all depends how your car was optioned. I could not find any vehicle specific information about your car. Might be that I am in a different region than you. I am fairly sure you cannot just plug in a mass storage device (hard drive or thumb drive) and expect the ...

You may try unplugging the battery for about 30 minutes. This will reset the computer. Also, carefully clean your MAF (if so equipped) with electronics cleaner. Do this before you plug your batter back in. The reset will help the computer relearn from factory settings and may improve your gas mileage. Cleaning your MAF is just preventive maintenance which ...

I am thinking an issue with the battery cables. Likely the ground cable. Follow it and see if it breaks anywhere. Get a multimeter. Measure the voltage between the battery terminals, then between an unpainted part of the body or the engine and the positive terminal. If the voltage is about the same, your ground is good. If the voltage is 0, you have ...
