    Targa top

    After searching I am a little uncertain. My apologies for asking a dumb questions. I read that the 95 and later del sols had improved seals. Am I correct that the front and back seals(attached to the car) were not improved but the window side seals(attached to the top) are the ones that got improved. If so then any top, improved or not, will fit on any car? The reason I ask is because my front and back seals are in excellent condition but the window seals need replacing. As there appears to be no new seals available I am thinking I can buy off ebay one of the newer tops with improved seals that might be in better shape. If I am correct in my understanding then my next questions is how can you tell which tops have the newer seals. I see tops for sale but they never seem to specify what year they are from. Again, my apologies for asking a newbie question. I tried to figure it out on my own with no luck. Thanks
  3. I have a 2008 honda odyssey touring with nav. Im getting code U0155 when I hook up my Obd2 scanner.I also have a check transmission and check airbag system notification. Car flashes check engine light 4 or 5 times then goes away on startup.Car runs and drives just fine.instrument cluster functions normally except for not showing what gear i am in but shows im in park on start up then when CEL comes on it dissapears.Im I ran a multimeeter on my OBD2 port on pins 14 and 6 and got 56 ohms i also ran pin 16 to 4 and 5 and got my battery volatage if this help.on my scan tool it does show my vin correctly if thats any useful information Update- I ran a different setting on my obd2 scanner and i get a code for just about every sensor for the engine and transmission and they all say test not completed during this operation cycle

  6. Use Youtube ma man: https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=honda+accord+1997+door+lock+problems dozens of videos on your car type: it's either actuators, or switches, or a combo of BOTH, have fun because it's easiest to debug EARLY, not later after 3 things break bro man.

    I and my immediate family have owned 13 toyotas and ive worked on all of them. I picked up a 2002 civic to resell. Ive got to say ive never seen a car rust like this. Even the splash guards for the brake assembly. Now the engineering. Come on!!!!!! You got to punch the bearings out to put in a wheel stud? You got to remove the bearing hub to replace the splash guards. Ive never. Not to mention the rockers that were well undercoated. Trash!!!
  8. Hey guys. I have a 1997 Honda Accord Ex 2.2l vtec. I bought the car a while back and the power locks only worked to lock the car. I was confused but it was nothing to worry about. But then the power locks would work at all. Not even to lock. So do you think it is a switch, wiring issue, or what? Please let me know?
  9. With Corona time I decided to update front and back gaskets, along with intake manifold gaskets. I followed the torques specs and installed the new gaskets but on start up the engine didn’t sound right (kind of revving up on its own) or in distress, so I cut it off. There also appeared to be oil burning (which I heard may be normal upon start up) Anyone have any tips before I go back in....anything I should keep an eye on? Of possible note, I am sending pic of front valve plug, one which appears dry and orange color not sure why that is but that is where the smoke was coming out of when I turned on Thanks for any help
  10. Hello Need a little help. Having a no crank, no start condition on my 89 Honda CRX Hf. In the midst of doing a D15B engine and transmission swap. Which entails quite a bit. I purchased this vehicle not running, basically no motor and no tranny. So we are switching in a D15B non vtec set up. And converting from the Hf's obd0 to obd1 ecu and obd1 engine and tranny (obd1 distributor, ecu, etc). So far what we have done is replaced engine and tranny (with modified mounts). We kept original Hf obd0 wiring harness and ran jumper harnesses (purchased off ebay and amazon) between 1-the Hf harness and the obd1 distributor 2-the Hf harness and a P06 ecu (obd1). 3-To a 4-wire o2 sensor. We also changed the fuel injector connectors on the Hf harness (Taken from the wiring harness off of the D15B) being sure to treat the yellow w black stripe wire as power. Tested the injectors and we are getting power to the injectors. Isolated the ignitor (green connector/I've seen it described as the "resistor wires" in other forums). Battery is good. Starter is also good. When we jump the starter directly is actuates initially but does not crank engine over. Engine does turn freely by hand. Replaced the main relay and the fuel pump: so when I turn the key in the ignition, the main relay clicks and the fuel pump can be head powering on. But still no crank no start. There aren't many people or at least I haven't been able to find any info on this particular swap D15B (non vtec) most people do the B-series swaps or if they do a D-series it's a vtec option. If anyone has any idea or inputs as to why it won't crank or start please let me know. I'm thinking maybe ECU is bad?
  11. Im looking for adas calibration targets for honda dimensions or pdf. i need to calibrate my multi camera
  12. Need a tv remote, do not use Electronic Adventures or New Remotes, same scammers. They use the old bait & switch. Order your remote & they send you a 7.00 junk remote and advise your remote has been discontinued .Then they don't answer your emails. They are located in Tampa, FL, just a heads up.
  13. Dear All, I need your support on some issues which I'm currently facing since day one of my purchase. I live in the Middle East and have purchased a brand new Honda CRV 2019. 1) The vehicle center top dome light works but it is actually supposed to get dim gradually and automatically go off once I get inside and switch on the engine. However, the lights only get illuminated when I open the door and remain continually on and I dunno why this problem exists. I tried changing the setting in the three stages available, however no use. 2) When I turn on the ignition I start playing the audio (MP3) from my USB the track plays properly however after approx 2 minutes the track display screen info becomes blank and stops playing that particular track. I initially thought that there was an issue with the USB device so I purchased a brand new one to confirm but the same issue exists. After I manually start/resume playing the track again it always works fine. This same issue happens even if the track continues from my last playing time after I return to start my car. I have observed that this track playing from the USB issue is repetitive after turning off and on the infotainment screen. (Attached photos 2 & 3) 3) Is there any way to update the Firmware and software revision of the built-in infotainment system. 4) Is there any way in which we can view the photos of the albums on one single screen by swiping across using the built-in infotainment system. 5) I noticed that the setting to view/check the oil level isn't available on the instrument panel. 6) After I turn off and turn on the engine I observed a shutter kind of noise heard whenever pilot in an aircraft activates its breaks and releases the parking brakes. This similar noise is also heard whenever I engage and disengage the parking brakes. 7) Twice this week, I have noticed a flaw in the infotainment system after starting up the engine and driving. The infotainment system gets hanged up initially and displays a black screen. Even the lane watch & reverse camera image doesn't appear, in fact, nothing shows up. However, during the second instance, I found that the system started responding but was painfully slow to respond. (Attached photo 1)

  18. I have a 2000 V6 Accord Coupe, stock, automatic. What upgrades can I get for better MPG? What size Turbo can I get to Bolt-on without having to do major engine work? And what's the best cold air intake I could get?
  19. My 2004 Honda Civic not starting I replaced the starter Because the older one was broken so I installed the new one and when I crank the car up it will crank but it won’t start I checked the ignition coils and they were good and I used starting fluid in the throttle body and that didn’t work either but when I try to start it up white smoke comes out of the throttle body and I checked to make sure that the starter is turning the engine and it is and when I turn the car on I can hear the fuel pump coming on but it’s just not starting please help!!!!
  20. Tools are useless if you don't know how to access it while repairing any lock. So, knowledge of using the tools is really very important if you want to be a successful locksmith.
  21. Air filter maybe.. 1st, have the car checked for computer codes, even if the trouble light is not lit up. Sounds like it's starving for fuel or has a bad sensor or clog someplace in the system, and not all problems will set of the check engine light. Post back if you find any codes and we can go from there. One post I read said this "Crank Angle Sensor replacement needed, most likely" but that's just a guess.. in general you are looking at vacuum leaks, air sensors, clogged fuel injector, long list of combustion and ignition timing problems that can cause misfiring. Here is a good article on the problem with Hondas: https://www.yourmechanic.com/estimates/honda/fit/engine-is-sputtering-inspection (they advertise mobile mechanics that will diagnose for you) An incomplete combustion in the engine will cause a sputter as can the ignition system. The fuel system, such as a blocked fuel injector may also cause the vehicle to sputter. While a sputtering engine may not seem like a major issue, it is a symptom of a bigger problem that will not self-correct and will eventually result in a much more expensive repair. The source of the sputter should be investigated and repaired as soon as possible. How this system works: A sputtering engine can have its root cause located in a number of different systems. Here are two of the more common ones, the exhaust and fuel system. The exhaust system collects exhaust gases from the cylinder head via the exhaust manifold, which acts as a funnel diverting exhaust gases away from the cylinders. The gases are then released through the front pipe where they travel to the catalytic converter. The catalytic converter removes the harmful elements of the gases such as carbon monoxide and hydrogen monoxide, converting them into inert gases. The gases exit the catalytic converter into the muffler, which reduces the noise levels of the engine, and finally the exhaust fumes exit the vehicle at the tail pipe. The fuel system is responsible for storing and supplying fuel to the car to drive the engine. Fuel is mixed with air, atomized and vaporized. This happens in the engine intake system. This mixture is then compressed in the engine cylinder and then ignited which produces the energy which moves the pistons. Common reasons for this to happen: Leak in Exhaust Manifold: A leak in the exhaust manifold, which collects exhaust gases, can cause the engine to sputter or run unevenly. This condition can also cause the Check Engine light to trigger as well as present increased engine noise and poor performance from the engine. A cracked or leaking exhaust manifold can create dangerous driving condition as the escaping hot gases can melt nearby plastic components. It can also lead to exhaust fumes making their way into the car cabin. Worn Seals or Gaskets: There are a number of gaskets and seals in the exhaust system and if any of them are failing it can create a rough or sputtering engine. Gaskets and seals wear down over time and will eventually have to be replaced. Failing to do this in a timely manner can damage the exhaust manifold which is a much more expensive repair. Failing Catalytic Converter: If the engine is sputtering, running rough and has a smell of rotten eggs it is probably due to a failing catalytic converter. In most cases, the Check Engine light will trigger as well. When a converter starts to fail, it isn’t able to burn off the hydrocarbons in the exhaust, and is no longer breaking down the sulfur created by the engine. This leads to the strong rotten egg smell. Eventually the car will not start at all as the catalytic converter becomes totally blocked. Malfunctioning Oxygen Sensors: Oxygen sensors measure how rich or lean the exhaust gases are when they leave the vehicles combustion chamber. The vehicle computer uses this information to adjust the amount of fuel entering the engine. A dirty or failing sensor puts too much or too little fuel into the engine causing it to run rough or sputter. Oxygen sensors must be replaced on a regular basis. Dirty Fuel Injectors: Fuel injectors spray fuel into the cylinders. It is then mixed with air and ignited. Fuel injector nozzles can become clogged over time, which can lead to a sputtering engine, slow acceleration and the car not having enough power. Fuel injectors can be cleaned if the problem is caught early, but as the conditions worsens, the injectors may have to be replaced. Bad or Dirty Spark Plugs: Spark plugs are responsible for igniting the fuel in the combustion chamber. If they are not working correctly or are dirty they don’t ignite the fuel cleanly and the car can misfire or sputter. The plugs will need to be replaced or cleaned. Dirty Mass Airflow Sensor: The mass airflow sensor measures the amount of air that is entering the fuel injection system. It sends that information to the vehicle computer, which then delivers the proper amount of fuel to the combustion chamber. A dirty mass airflow sensor will send the wrong information the computer resulting in a rough running or sputtering engine. Vacuum Leak: A leak in the vacuum system can lead to a sputtering or rough running engine. As the problem progresses the vehicle can hesitate or stall when accelerating.
  22. I have a Honda Accord 08 and I have changed fuel filter,spark plugs,timing belt changed oil and got fuel cleaner and it still does it I have no lights on except tire sensor what could cause this I even started putting premium gas in it and Still sputters I even changed front and back brakes and hardware any ideas?
  23. I have searched everywhere for a quick DIY on replacing the camshaft on the F22B1 ('97 Honda Accord EX 2.2l), but came up empty everywhere - I lost the pulley bolt after replacing the head, and I ended up welding the cam pulley to the shaft, just as a temporary fix to be able to get back and forth to work - I have a new cam, pulley, and bolt coming tomorrow, and was hoping someone could point me to a write-up so I can feel better about driving WITHOUT a welded cam pulley LOL
  24. Hey guys, so i have a 2010 Honda accord Lx with 6 speaks 2 on deck 2 tweeters and 2 on both my driver and passenger door. My whole sound system is stock I've had the car for 2 years and all my speakers were working fine when i bought it up until about 7-8 months ago my deck speakers started cutting in and out at random times like i would be able to hear it clearly then it would just cut out completely . Afterwards my passenger front speakers started to do the same and about a week ago they all started cutting in and out bad like crackling but its doing it most if not all the time and i'm not sure if my amp is bad/bad ground or if i just need to replace my stock speakers. ANY INFORMATION WITH THIS WILL HELP! Thank you :))))

  26. So, my daughter's 1998 Honda Civic DX, (135k) will only roughly start with the throttle floored. And even then you have to fight to keep it going. I'll start this by saying first and foremost that I am NOT a small engine car guy, and my mechanic experience is limited to old school engines, like pre-90x Chevy 350, 327, etc. She drove it without issue from one place to another, then when she came back out to leave an hour later, no start/hard start. I did all the basic trouble shoots I could think of. Pulled the plugs, they looked fouled, so went ahead and replaced plugs and wires, verified spark with a tester...still no start. Verified fuel, and air. (Didn't do a fuel pressure test, yet, due to the following reason). Here's where my question lies - I had the timing belt replaced 6 months ago, when we first got the car, just out of precaution. (I was actually very surprised, and pleased, to see how clean everything looked when I got a chance to see in the valve cover while the mechanic was working). Out of curiosity, while trouble shooting, I decided to pull the top timing belt cover off, JUST to make sure that wasn't at issue. Belt still looked just like new, not loose, no signs that it had slipped a tooth, etc. BUT...It just happened that the cam pulley was at TDC, but when I looked down at the crank pulley marks the TDC mark (far right white mark) was WAY (like 3 inches) to the right of the pointer marks. I haven't gone so far as to pull off the front wheel, and tear things down, to access the lower cover to check the drive pulley marks, but also can't for the life of me figure out how on earth the timing marks on the crank pulley could be so far off from TDC on the cam pulley, without the timing belt breaking, or at least tearing up a bit. All the pulleys are keyed, right? So there's no way it could have been put on in the wrong position. Why would the timing marks be off that way, and if that's the cause, what would make it happen so suddenly, while not even running? Thoughts?
  27. My SL 2007 Acura would not start unless I cycled through shifting gears and then put it back in park. Now it will not start at all. Does anyone know if this is a sensor issue. That maybe it is not acknowledging that it is in park.
  28. Mostly all locksmiths doesn't have those software and systems through which they can make transponder keys but locksmith tucker near us can make all type of keys and provide you within a day.
