  1. 16 Civic AC Not Working

    It's really worth it to look at the condenser through any openings available before going to the dealer. I looked at mine and I don't see any dents whatsoever. All I saw was a few bugs, otherwise perfect surface. Maybe it's possible to slide a phone in there and took pictures. Of course it...
  2. Anyone know what this green blinking light is?

    Maybe some or all boxes can be unplugged, but some wiring had to be added/replaced to install that harness you plug it in. But I doubt you can unplug it in most cases, because if you refuse to pay for it, they still won't remove it.
  3. Where do you store your pistol?

    For storage, I would consider yanking out my spare wheel. Who needs to carry the fifth wheel for daily driving? Some people might feel like it, but I never needed a spare wheel in my life. Admittedly, I haven't needed my gun so far either, but.... a matter of priority. If I had to be...
  4. DIY refrigerant recharge experiences

    Yes, it might be against some regulations, but there is absolutely no reason for 1234yf being restricted. You still can blow cans of brake cleaner as you like and buy huge tanks of propane-butane. This is the phenomenon of escalating idiotic regulations, when the actual reason for them becomes...
  5. DIY refrigerant recharge experiences

    False. :doh:Learn about it first, before preaching here. 1234yf and 134a have no effect on the ozone layer. In other words, their Ozone Depleting Potentials are zero. 134a was only replaced by 1234yf because of its alleged so called Global Warming Potential. The GWP of 1234yf is less than...
  6. Anyone know what this green blinking light is?

    I wouldn't buy a new car with anything like this installed.
  7. What brand motor oil do yall recommend?

    Why Mobil1 1 of course. :D A couple of their oils already have the ILSAC-GF6A approval recorded on their website, and I don't think they needed to reformulate anything. I have been using the 0W20 Annual Protection at full oil changes, which takes place according to MM, wchich with my recent...
  8. What brand motor oil do yall recommend?

    I never believed that "tight tolerances" require low viscosity oil. They only allow for the use of lower viscosity oils which save some energy wasted on churning the oil. Fast flow of the oil is not really needed for lubrication, so I'm actually not surprised that higher weight oils would...
  9. What’s maintenance that people should do to their civic once in a while

    On the 1.5T the PCV valve is behind the leftmost cylinder coil, close to the oil filler, bolted to the valve cover (the yellow Ding). Can't be easier to replace. No hoses attached to it, it's all inside. On my civic it's 17130-59B-003, less than $30.
  10. What brand motor oil do yall recommend?

    I believe this is the case. Unfortunately, oil dilution is not the only concern and there are other places in the engine where 50 or 60 weight oil might not flow fast enough such as around the turbo and even more importantly in the valve mechanisms. So I treat 30 as totally fine, 40 probably ok...
  11. Where do you store your pistol?

    The "times have changed" argument actually works against you. When the 2nd ammendment was adopted, all that was needed to resist any government and its army was a bunch of men with good rifles and a few cannons. Because that's essentially all any military had at the time. Today, the...
  12. Air conditioning condenser issue is real

    But it has the 1234yf refrigerant, the newest invention the most environmentally friendly and the most precious. That's reason to rejoice!:nixon: In particular for DuPont/Honeywell. It's been a real well of honey for them. I guess it needs to be environmentally friendly if every charge is...
  13. What brand motor oil do yall recommend?

    The qouted text does not make any sense. By how much would anyone expect theat 1.8% of gasoline could reduce the viscosity? Of course any oil would stay in the range. And anyone can put loads of sodium in the oil. That's not any sort of achievement. Diluting any oil with gasoline will just...
  14. Who else couldn't care less about "infotainment"?

    As far as the menu design not being intuitive, I don't see it. I've seen much worse. People's "intuitions" and expectations how this should be organized are very different, and I don't always like what others like. But I quickly adapt to someone else's logic, however weird it appears...
  15. What brand motor oil do yall recommend?

    What "lubrication properties" specifically?
  16. Who else couldn't care less about "infotainment"?

    I checked out the electronics/radio when I was buying the car. I saw what it was and how it worked. I found it fine for me. After almost 2.5 years it's still the same as it was then and it works the same way. No surprises whatsoever. Actually, it's a bit better with the Honda Hack thing...
  17. 2016 A/C Compressor Leak

    This actually might be only the way to go after the warranty expires for good. Do they even have defect-free parts now? I doubt it. If the system works at least through one season until the refrigerant leaks out, I would rather recharge it every year than take to the dealer for days who will...
  18. trying to buy OEM parts. best place for pricing?

    Check your friendly dealer's parts department too. But they can be very different. For maintenance parts one dealer might charge double the price, another basically the same price as online minus the shipping. For example the prices for Honda brake fluid, PS fluid, and some minor...
  19. Where do you store your pistol?

    You haven't known this before? :eek: That's understendable if you are not particularly interested in firearms and haven't been in the military.:cool:
  20. Where do you store your pistol?

    So he banned a style? What was offensive about the style: the color or the scary shape? Otherwise it's just a rifle. And besides, it's ok if guns look scary. I always wondered what do the assaulters do when their assault fails? Do they drop the "assault weapons" and pull the "defense...
