  1. Today
  2. New Honda owner, requesting advice, just taken delivery of a 2020 civic and will be using for a long distance commuter. I will be leaving the car in an open air parking lot to up (2) months at a time. My question is the best way to protect the car from sun damage. There is so much information and product reviews I am really not sure what to believe. My first reaction was car cover, but the concern for paint damage from rubbing from wind and dirt. Then having to roll the cover up, stow in the car for he drive home... Then I considered a sealant and wax system, refreshing every 3 months? Any perspective appreciated.
  3. Yesterday
  4. Hi I am new here. I recently bought an 07 Civic and it worked perfectly fine until just 2 days ago. I was at a drive thru with my girlfriend and in the middle of the drive thru the car started to rumble for a second or 2 and then completely shut down. The manager had to push the car out of the drive thru and into a parking space to finish our order (which I felt extremely bad about) after we got our food the car started working fine again and we were able to get home. Then yesterday When I when to try and start the car nothing would happen the car wouldn't turn over at all. Then finally today it turned out the car had somehow gone into anyi theft mode and we haven't been able to figure out how to get it out of theft mode. We got the alarm to stop going off and now it barely starts. The battery could also be the issue or the alternator or both. Is there anyone that could help with this situation? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Please abd and thank you
  5. Hello, i want to change my tranmission fluid and filter, there is a guide on the ozhonda forum that show you all the part you need which includes the atf oil and the inline filter. However the post only mention the inline filter location for the CL9 accord and not the CU2. And i'm having a bit of a trouble identifying and locating where the location for this inline transmission filter is. Have anyone replaced this part before and can possibly give me a hint or picture of where the location for this part might be?
  6. I'm looking for zigzag floor mats for my 95 Del Sol that is Paradise Blue Green Pearl in color. 95 Del Sol's had color matching stripe on seats (red car, red stripe) and some had color matching zigzag floor mats. Mine has white(ish) color stripe on the seats. I assume the zigzag floor mats were also probably white. Can anyone confirm? More importantly, does anyone know where I could find them?
  7. Last week
  8. I saw a similar thread on a Ford forum and I learned tons since I own a Ford as well. Interesting to see what everyone does to their vehicle! ok so I will start... I have a 2014 Honda civic 1.8L and I changed the oil, filter, transmission and coolant with all of these products. https://www.searchforparts.com/oil-change/honda-2014-civic-1.8l-r18a9 I like the fact that they put all products on one page, especially for the filter, I can easily get any synthetic oil on Amazon or anywhere else by knowing the weight but the filter lookup is a pain sometimes. Also ordered these mirrors by Kool Vue https://www.carparts.com/mirror/kool-vue/ho05el?&vehicle[cylinders]=4&vehicle[liter]=1.8&vehicle[submodel]=LX&vehicle[model]=Civic&vehicle[make]=Honda&vehicle[year]=2014 The mirrors are all dented and scratched from the previous owner and I never got around to it. May paint them myself. ok your turn!
  9. I don't think buffing it or rubbing compound is going to help. I had the hood fade on a previous vehicle, and MAACO painted it for cheap. You won't get the best paint but you wont get the worst. They may be able to do a partial paint job on the section in your picture, not sure but it is worth looking for the local MAACO in your area and ask. Or actually any body shop but MAACO should be cheaper. hope this helps.

    SCUFFED LCD SCREEN

    I have a 2020 Honda Civic LX and I did a doofus move. I had a blemish on my lcd screen and I grabbed my microfiber cloth and wiped it off. Well apparently early morning half asleep I must have rubbed too hard and now I have a jacked up lcd screen on my brand new car. And after you tell me what a doof I am for using a dry cloth on a lcd screen any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Does anyone know if you just can replace the lcd screen or is it a total scrap and have to replace the whole mechanism. And if anyone has a quick fix like rubbing african honey bee oil on it I again would be greatly appreciative.

    94 ACCORD EX

    DOES ANYONE KNOW IF THE A/C COMPRESSOR IS FREE WHEELING WHEN THE AC BUTTON IS NOT ACTIVATED? aND IF SO WILL IT BE ALRIGHT TO USE THE CAR OR CAN THE COMPRESSOR STILL LOCK UP AT ANY GIVEN MOMENT?
  13. looking for some comments on this situation.... got 04 Accord EXL 3.0 V6 on Aug 2019 with 117k miles. Needed complete suspension and brake overhaul, tires, some body work, window regulator and new AC compressor. Engine clean, runs great. Replaced compressor and took it into shop to have AC professionally charged on Sept 2019. Blew cool air on test and then took it home (1 mile away) and worked on suspension. 140 miles later took it back to same place for state inspection on Nov. 2019. Passed easily. Drove maybe once a week. Never used AC in winter nor spring and 3000 miles later in July 2020 the AC was blowing warm air. The same shop that originally charged the AC unit CONFIRMED there are NO leaks and my freon was low. Shop manager said I have to pay for an AC charge service. What is your professional opinion on this. I will respond with what happened after I receive some comments.
  14. If you’ve got a smartphone and you drive a car, what’s better than combining the two into a force for good? You'll want Android Auto. As Android-powered smartphones gain more market share, Google is attempting to match the runaway success of the Apple CarPlay format with some strong plays of its own. The upgrade brought new app connectivity, greater integration with Google Maps and the related Waze map app, as well as Google’s own music app Play, plus Spotify, Messenger, podcast apps and many more. Old car 🚘 ? It can still have an Android Auto🤔📲
  15. hey all, ive been scouring the web for days trying to remove my rear seats, but my hatch seems to be nothing like anyone else's. ive noticed some have bolts on the back of the seats connecting to the hinges and some merely have black plastic clips on the sides. mine literally has neither. and the seats dont budge so it couldnt be the prev owner forgetting the clips. i have the bottom half of the seat out but i cannot see a single way to get the top half out. i need to replace it as its gone mouldy, almost tempted to bin the whole project and stick to mitsubishis.
  16. I’ll start this off by saying I don’t know much about tuning. A buddy of mine suggested that it needed to be tuned. I’m having some trouble finding out A place to buy a chipped ECU for my 97 accord. It has the F22B2 engine with VTEC. The car is unfortunately an automatic and any shop I have called says they cannot work with it. All the internals are stock, but it has a T3 turbokit and straight pipe exhaust. I plan on adding a higher grade fuel pump, injectors, and a wideband sensor. The car was well prepped for the turbo kit and ran just fine before the install. I don’t want to commit anymore than I already have until I know I can get the car tuned. If anyone knows a person I can go to get what is needed that would be amazing! It could be another problem that I’m not considering and any information is helpful!
  17. I just got a 2020 Civic Si Coupe 500 miles on the engine and I am having two issues not sure if I should take it in to the dealer 1. Despite the assurance that the Oil Dilution issue on the Earth Dreams 1.5L Inline 4 Turbo was "fixed" after driving the new car for 500 miles I can smell a strong odor of gas when I pull the dipstick. It is driving fine and does not seem over filled but there is gas in the oil for sure. 2. I ran the car on a dealer level scanner and it is showing random misfires on every cylinder. Not a huge amount like one every so often. On a 30 Min drive I may have 10-15 misfires (or at least what the scanner an Autel 906BT registers as misfires). No Mil lights and no drivability issues from what I can tell. I have an appointment to take it in to the dealer but that is gong to be an all day ordeal. Got to drop it off and when they get to it they will check it out and it will be a huge hassle for them to tell me "everything looks fine on our end call us when something breaks or a light comes on." Any advice or suggestions would be much obliged.

  19. Just picked up a 2002 civic with 238k on the odometer for a couple hundred. I'm a VW guy so I'm not really familiar with Honda's. Wondering what commonly fails at this mileage and what should be replaced/prioritized. It runs good no check engine light or anything just a smashed in windshield. Plan on fixing up and flipping for a profit so anything too expensive that isn't mandatory I'd like to avoid. Thanks!

    Hey, I'm Carla and I've got a 93 Honda Accord 4x4
  25. The car will only stay running if I hold the ignition fully engaged. When I let off it dies. If I hold it fully on it will go in gear and drive as normal. What do I do?
  26. I don't know how to use this yet but on the off chance that this is how I get my question read and answered...

    My 93 Honda Accord will only stay running if I keep the ignition entirely engaged. When I let off the ignition the car dies out. When I keep it fully engaged I can put it in gear and go as usual. The starter is only protesting while in Park or Neutral.

  27. I have a 98 civic with a b18 swap....the motor is a DA integra b18a1 and the transmission is from a 96 integra....what Ecu and harness do I need for my car to work
  28. 2001 Acura Integra. Chipped a corner off the side view mirror housing. Hoping to glue the piece back on. Don't know what kind of plastic it is, or what is the best glue? I greatly appreciate any wisdom you can offer:-) Neil
  29. Hello, I am wondering if others have experience with this: I bought my car used about 4 years ago. Overtime I have noticed the paint on one area of my car become more and more damaged by the sun ( I assume). I am aware that this make and model is known for cosmetic issues with the paint I have included a picture below. I’ve always thought it looked superficial like it sits on the surface. It looks worse in certain lightening. Does anyone have any suggestions on what I can do ? Getting it detailed ?? Looking for something other than an entire paint job as it’s not worth it Thanks in advance
