  1. EPS steering rack replacment

    While driving at 40 mph or more, on a warm engine, smooth road (best time to FEEL it) you will have a slight resistance when making minor corrections. IF you do have that and you want to ensure the service writer feels it you do not shut down the engine...schedule an appointment so they are...

  4. EPS steering rack replacment

    I am glad to say that I can trust a few folks at our local dealer here in our part of Texas. I will name drop - Keating Honda - and they did a credible job. I took the advice of many on here and other forums and called ahead. Gave a description and the rather sketchy nature of the fault. The...
  5. Honda 1.5t oil dilution lawsuit letter

    we bought our EX new and have had no issues so far with 54k miles...that being said...with no fuel smell in the oil (checking at regular intervals) is there a deadline mileage where this will occur? or is it a situation where it will be fine one day and then the next its pumping gas out of the...

    Hello all, Can anyone tell me if there is anyone making an LED reflector replacement for the 5 door hatches? Specifically this reflector in the pic. I am dubious of what is on Ebay and would like solid advice. Thank you! D
  7. 2018 Civic driver side door mirror

    okay got it done. didn't have to remove the mirror from the door. just had to pop the mirror itself out of the housing and disengage the three tabs. very important to have a set of plastic trim tools (thankfully I have them) for this. total cost for the part was 39.68 USD shipped and took less...

  13. My curmudgeonly rant of the day on modern technology.

    I feel you on the rant. first gen My Ford Touch/SYNC was awesomely bad. guess you can call the gen 1.5 MFT/SYNC in our old Escape wasn't as bad as there was plenty of buttons for this, that and the other including dedicated HVAC and radio controls. I can however say the hatch there...

  15. CVT Longevity -

    I've always done my own tranny service on my vehicles. I know on our Escapes we would need to do a different type of flush. I'd pull the plug, drain about 5 quarts of fluid, replace said fluid, drive around the block. Drop the plug and get another 5 quarts out, then replace that. That basic...
