Re: DIY Paddleshifters on F23A1?

Haha that's funny. I used to do that to the FPR in my Hyundai Accent to get it through emissions with a split catalytic converter when they used to sniff cars instead of just scan them.

You...

Re: Transmission Issues (not my DD)

All the 6th gens I've worked on have been V-6, so yours will be different. Any pics of the rust? Also I wonder if the drain for the AC is in a different spot on a 4-cyl car, so maybe that rust...

Re: Please help. Oil leak

Since you're saying driver's side, I am assuming you are 4-cyl. Is it definitely oil? I know on V6s many people have been fooled into doing cam seals by leaky power steering pumps.

By your...

Re: Transmission Issues (not my DD)

I see you are in Chicago, which sounds like a place that probably salts the roads, so you probably have some rust.

Are you talking about the whole subframe or just the front half? I didn't have...

Re: Transmission Issues (not my DD)

So you're fixing it, eh? Good. It'll be better than anything else you'll be able to get for a few thousand bucks. You'll miss the V6.

You planning on doing it on the ground or you have a hoist?...

Re: Transmission Issues (not my DD)

Yeah, the silver car was good to me. I actually just used the alternator from it in Connie on Sunday afternoon.

I'm going to take the green car for a longer drive tomorrow, it's supposed to be...

Re: Transmission Issues (not my DD)

I haven't noticed it, but then I haven't really been looking for it, either.
Probably helps that the AC doesn't get used often around here.
I'll take a look tomorrow when I don't feel so awful. ...

Re: Transmission Issues (not my DD)

Transmission successfully installed! Probably took about 5 hours of actual work; so not too bad. But good lord would a hoist have made things a billion times easier. Got a new axle installed as...

Re: Something electrical and strange happened to Connie on the way to work today.

Got a spare alternator installed over the weekend; 13.6 when running, pretty much regardless of RPM or what's on. And no bad smell. The replacement was still shiny and even had a Carquest sticker...

Re: Million mile club

You're not supposed to use that. It can cause chatter in the rack. The seals are engineered for use with the Honda fluid as well. Even the generic manufacturers normally make a Honda-compatible...

Re: Something electrical and strange happened to Connie on the way to work today.

No sulfur smell yet, and the burnt electrical smell hasn't come back, either.

Checked again when I got home last night; with everything on (wipers on high, stereo cranked, lights on, 4-ways on,...

Re: Something electrical and strange happened to Connie on the way to work today.

14.5 is a bit on the high side, but within spec. I just redid the battery connections last week, they are definitely ok. The power wire is tight on the alt, and everything is plugged in tightly. ...

Re: Suddenly Running HOT

I actually found the leak a day after topping up the coolant, but forgot to update here.

Yeah; I was relieved, too.

Appreciate all the help, as always:waytogo:

Re: Million mile club

Mine's clear, and all the brake fluid I've ever seen is either clear or yellowish when new, and brown to black when in there too long. Never seen red brake fluid before, but I don't use Honda brake...

Re: Something electrical and strange happened to Connie on the way to work today.

Just checked it; 12.7v with car off, 14.5v with engine running, doesn't change much no matter what I turn on or off, or what RPM I'm at....seems like it is working properly at the moment, but I...

Re: Something electrical and strange happened to Connie on the way to work today.

Yeah I know, I have actually seen one explode in a diesel Jetta from overcharging back in the 90s. The battery is already a few years old, so as long as it doesn't explode things should be fine. ...

Re: Million mile club

I never read his posts over there.
If that's the case and the fluid is red, then yeah it's definitely a axle seal leak and not a CV issue.

Those seals are like 6 bucks, if they are the little...

Re: Something electrical and strange happened to Connie on the way to work today.

Multimeter is at home, so it'll have to wait till this afternoon. With the electrical smell definitely coming from the alternator, there's not much doubt in my mind that it's my issue. I'll test it...

Re: Something electrical and strange happened to Connie on the way to work today.

I'm 99% sure it's just the alt; I'll update once I get it swapped out, but I'm pretty sure that's all it is.

Re: Something electrical and strange happened to Connie on the way to work today.

I suppose alternator is a possibility, it's been on there for over 4 years and 250k km now since the original went. And the car is an 02 V6, so it's a coil-over-plug setup, so no plug wires.

It...

Re: Million mile club

Yeah the axle grease and ATF don't mix. There's no connection. Axle seals and CV boots are completely separate issues.

Something electrical and strange happened to Connie on the way to work today.

I was coming down the 400 this morning, going about 120ish, when all the traffic stopped, as it does quite regularly. Slammed on the brakes and stopped, safe following distance for the win!

Re: Rusty Accord's 99 Sedan LX F23A4 w/5speed (56K)

Yeah wheel bearings don't squeak; at least I've never heard one do that. They are either silent, rumbly, growly, vibratey, or a combination of the latter three.

Sway bar links and bushings or...
