Honda is garbage
>>23427417looks so bad but feels so good.
what do you guys think about the new fit?
might put this on the ol' 4 cylinderpretty sweet, right bros? :)
>>23429509idk man thats advanced autism
Thinking about buying an Element as a shameful daily. Any thoughts on them? Things in particular I should investigate if I go to look at one in person? Mainly want one because they seem to be relatively available in my area and I like the cargo options the rear hatch design allows for. Also, I really like cube cars.
>>23428691That's actually pretty cool looking. I hate how America hates small cars. They're just so wonderful to drive. I wish Honda would have made a Fit Si or something.
>>23430975Fit si will be a dream come true
>>23427764Like bangin a fat chick
>>23430975You can make your own. A K swap shouldn't be too difficult. Shit, even a R18 would be quite the upgrade. IIRC most honda engines are pretty interchangeable, not too too much work
anyone know the compression numbers for a R18? (2011 civic to be exact)I was getting an average of 135-150psi for my cylinders.
My sedan is comfy in the garage. Only 5000 miles added since I last drove it which ain't bad. Head gasket and ARP studs did the trick. Got plans for some maintenance catch up and maybe some front end work.Saw a CM Accord many yards away from the interstate facing east on the west bound side. Cop was already there. I'm wondering how the hell they fucked up driving a highway machine. The Camry I was in basically drives itself with the cruise turned on. >Also visited my good friend with the TLThis design is perfection in sedan form.
>>23433823R18 is 125 +- 28 iirc. You seem good
>doing clutch master cylinder swap on '08 S2000>clutch hard line won't screw into master cylinder assemblyI have spent like six hours spinning this stupid inverted flare nut thing and it's not threading just fucking kill me bros
>>23434148thank you anon
>>23434065Sucks they get such shit MPG for a sedan, doesn't it average like 25mpg?
>>23436303For a 270HP 2004 car, that's pretty darn good.
>>23436321yeah i suppose there's that, didn't think of it lol
This is the year I transform my ek hatch into a facsimile of the cyber night civic.Phase 1: fix up all the odds and ends. Squeaks, creaks, dusty lining etc.Phase 2: performance. It'll be a daily so this won't be too hardPhase 3: a bunch of diy bullshit for futuristic upgrades. Nfc start, and doors. Sexy head and tail lights, maybe a new wing.Phase 4: ????Phase 5: profit
>>23436356Facsimile doesn't mean what I thought it meant. Itll be a general idea not an exact copy
wheres v6 accord VCM anon? did you see my post in the previous thread?
OK br/o/s i need your helpi have a 2007 accord v6 coupe, just rolled over 100k today and it's giving me some shitover the last couple months i had an intermittent check engine light for a p0497 (low purge flow) and it usually would just go away and it hasnt come on since august.today i came home from driving and getting a car wash, putting air in my tires (for free at discount tire), and gettin a sick ass steering wheel coveri pull in the driveway and the car quits when i put it into parki start it again, it turns on and MIL light is oni read the codes and i get U0107, P0135, P0155, and P0641the p0497 code surprisingly didnt appear alongside all of theseand I really cannot think of a problem that could be causing these codesI cleared the codes, and they haven't come back yet after driving a couple people home and the car hasn't died again yet.can anyone be of service to possibly investigate?
God fucking dammit I hate living in NY. Every single EF I’ve looked at is rusted to shit cause we love dumping salt on our roads and people never was their cars in the winter.
>>23437698what do the codes mean did you look them up? whats the history of the vehicle? did you do any maintenance recently? does the idle and timing sound normal? is temperature reading hot or normal? are your radiator fans bloing like crazy after you shut off teh engine? you check compression of each cylinder? is all the easy stuff squared away, like you have oil in your engine? pulled and checked the spark plugs? pull and check PCV for stuck valve? checked your air hose for cracks? air filter is clean and not clogged with 13 years of debris?
>>23438189>>23437698also check the gaskets of the air filter box, make sure its there and not broken or missing or you could be losing intake suction pressure that way. check all air hose clamps are tight and no cracks in hose. could be a bad mass airflow sensor too.
>>23437698>>23438189>>23438196k i just googled the codes, it all seems to be electronic related or sensor related. is your battery good? maybe your battery is failing. lots of places will test that for free if you dont have your own gear. a multimetere can tell you at least if its putting out the proper voltage. but you could have a low voltage battery thats still good if its not charging which could be a alternator issue. id say start with the battery because its the simplest. start with the easiest possible shit first then work your way down
>>23438189the only things i did recently in the last couple months were likereplace the timing belt/serpentine belt, throw in a new water pump and replace coolant (no issues after this)temp reads normalradiator fans werent blowing at all they were finei dont have tools to check compressioni'll check the gaskets of the air filter box tomorrow>>23438202yeah that's what i really don't getall of them are related to electronics and "losing connection" to themrecently i had to disconnect the battery (about a month and a half ago) to replace the drivers side headlight bulb and i cleaned off the corroded buildup shit on the terminalsa long time ago i was reading my ABS codes and it gave me 61-1, "low voltage during cranking", but i wouldn't know if that'd have anything to do with it. the p0497 code is intermittent and i believe the purge solenoid causes the car to idle kinda shitty. maybe these two things factor into it? i don't knowi was gonna buy like an NTK solenoid from rockauto but im broke right now so im waiting to get paid again to do that
>>23427417Ausfag hereIf you had a choice between a DC5 Integra type S, or a EP3 JDM Civic Type R, what would you choose? Assuming both are the same price/km
honda is bad
>>23438895at letting others win.
>>23427764>NC1 MX5 womp womp
>>23427417what's more funK20 swapped, nicely modified EK hatch, or S2000 with a few simple mods (coilovers,wheels and exhaust I guess)I assume both would turn out to be around the same sorta price range
>>23438232how old is your battery?
>>23440165s2000 will handle better, the EK hatch would be a faster straight line drag probably
how does one avoid the "mogu mogu headgasket" meme?
>>23441116K swap it
>>23441116Extra care of the cooling system. Maybe throw some water wetter in there too. Watch the thermostat especially. If that seizes closed a head gasket failure is only a few steps away. Speaking of Civics. I cleaned mine up a bit and fixed a few things.>Straightened steering wheel>Installed Ford Taurus cup holder>Fixed throttle position sensor, was installed wrong>Did a small coolant flush, still waiting on new thermostat>Adjusted headlight aim>Cleaned out trash and vacuumedIt's gonna be an excellent daily pizza beater. Just like it started out in 2014.
>>23441252Here's the cup holder. They're extra hard to find lately so I'm happy I have one for both my Civics. Kinda want a taller shift knob. Might take the hatch one since it's down for now.
>>23441258Also throwback to 2014. Crazy that I've had this car around me for seven years now. Same amount of time I've been posting in this general.
>>23441262And now. Very OEM+ build.
what would i have to upgrade to take the 10th gen Si from a 6.5k redline to a 7k redline?also how pointless would this be?
>>23441734Expensive. You're gonna need a ecu or tune or whatever. If you want revs, turbo is a mistake. I'm not too familiar with 10th gen civics, but I dont know if getting them to rev higher is something people do. I dont doubt you could do it, but I dont know if it would be financially beneficial. Plenty of other mods you could do before to increase you joy much much more.Should have gone with a 8th or 9th gen civic, then turboed it if you really wanted the torque.
Lol COVID made the fk8 rare, my MY19 fk8 (<10k km) is selling at literally new price levels at Australia. More than what I bought for
>>23442238yeah i mean it's not really necessary, i think i'd get better value out of a tuner plus better bolt onsI was just wondering if it was something you could even do since I know the type-r redlines at 7k but it is a different engine.
>>23434441>spent two days trying to thread it>go into garage last night and figured I’d be retarded and try again>threads fine and I get it connected in like 15 minutesI think I just had to be holding it at a very specific angle but I never want to deal with that bullshit again
>>23444427Nice man, I hate it when that shit happens. Happy to hear you got it working
>>23442628Can relate. I paid msrp when the avg was 5-10k over. >driving off the lot>your car appreciated
>>23445535Yeah this is at my local dealer. It's crazy. I love the car but that price is built new STI territory.
Will I regret it if I get a 2014 CR-Z with 45k miles for $12k? Am I getting ripped off?
>>23446494If it's M/T no, that shit is fun even if it's slow.If you get bored or the battery goes to shit you can swap in a K20 and if you live in California you don't have to smog because it's a hybrid.
Any reason not to buy a 2022 Civic hatch? Or is it not a good idea to buy a first year new-gen model?
I can't find too much info on the longeivity of 10th gen civic CVTs. All i read is that they are better than jatco but that's not saying much. Should I sell my civic before I reach 100k or can I drive it into the ground?>>23446528do research on the drivetrain. I'd wager the 11th gen will be nearly identical to the 10th with some improvements. Maybe look into snagging a 2021 at a big discount since it's the last model year of the 10th gen
>>23446767Honda 1.5t CVTs can take 250HP before blowing out, just change your fluid and it shouldn't be having a problem.
>>23445715Lmao is anyone with 50K even looking at 4 cylinders?
>>23448229>As someone with money who loves 4 cylinders, I feel personally attackedWent and test drove a 2016 GTR todayPretty upsetting honestlyThe car had a lot more wear than it should for the mileage and I was surprised at how slow the r35 is.Don't get me wrong, it's pretty fast for a car you can just go buy, but it is not faster than a shit box that I put together in my garage. For a car that is 100k+ new I expected a lot more than thatNot really sure what to do now
>>23449374GTR has really lost its thunder in its old age. I've met a few people who sold theirs because it's boring. One went for a C7 Z06 with a manual.
>>23449449C7 is like a C6 turned up in all the wrong waysI really, really liked the C6. C7 not so muchAt this point I'm finna go test drive a 570s or a gt3 or something
>>23449515He's had a ton of cars that I can't even list. Know be had a Viper and a Mk4 Supra for a while. Between the GTR and the C7 he had a Mercedes AMG GT but sent it right back when he found out how much a brake job cost.
>>23444759Thanks dude. Finally bled the clutch and the clutch pedal was all squeaky, so I went ahead and polished/greased the slave cylinder. Still got a minor squeak but I can live with it. Tomorrow is brake bleed and maybe regreasing the shifter.
>>23440249UPDATE. i hope you're still around. Same thing happened again, I put the car in park at a gas pump and turned my headlights off and then the car shut off. All the codes were the same except with the addition of a P0498 code.I'm gonna look at my car tomorrow and crack it open. Would the battery cause this? I had to pull it out a couple months back to replace a headlight bulb and i wiped corrosion off of it with a paper towel. I don't know how my battery would do this if it's something that starts the car and doesn't actually keep the electrics running. Unless im retarded, i am a wrenchlet
>>23449374we gotta run em
>finally past engine break-in period for Sifeels good rippin' it, lads.
>>234526032020. don't h8 me because it's a soulless 1.5t
>>23452648L15B engines are cool.
>>23427417I guess I should tell y'all I sold that grey 09 civic that was added 12/19.
>>23438316Type R should have an lsd. The only thing my type S is lacking. Get that.
>>2343630320 city, 27 highway. Car is heavy though. My friend hit 40 highway after a few weight reductions.
went to a lube place, 2007 v6 accordthe place put high mileage 10w30 instead of what my oil cap readout, 5w20, should i give a shit
>>23456983Nah it should be fine, you can try another shop next change, and hopefully they'll stick to the 5W-20 blend CMs crave.
What is the general consensus on the current gen hatchback? Also, does it have oil dilution problems? Would the corolla hatchback be a better option?
>>23457227If you like hot little hatches made in Japan, the Corolla Hatch is a cooler car, Toyota's kept the size small, while the Civic is thicc, there shouldn't be oiling issues if the oil's changed every 3000 on the Civic.
>>23457272>oil's changed every 3000 on the Civic.that's kind of shitty. Even most old shitboxes don't need an oil change for 5000
>>23457227Corolla hatch cargo space looks really small compared to Civic. Wait for the 22 Civic hatch.
>tfw you get the first rock chip on your car At least I'll care less for the future ones to come.
>>23457497if you noticed a rock chip it is not a shitbox, it is a nice car and you should be proud and take care of it
>>23457528The problem with a daily is its just gonna keep getting chipped after you respray or touch it up.I'd get one of those black bra things if his commute is highway, won't protect against a broken windshield but the hood will stay nice.
>out of nowhere neighbor whips out a third gen prelude si as if he's had it forevergod these things are so nice to look atgotta chat the guy up now
>>23457551>>23457551Think I'll get one for long drives. Just drove from tx to mississippi. Otherwise il keep it off and deal with the chips I get
>>23457613>for long drivesThat's what I see Tyson Hugie do, and that nihga stays mint with stupid high miles on his cars.
Whats a realistic amount you guys think I could get for my rt4wd wagovan?6 speed, speakerpods, all optioned out200k miles and paints faded but runs greatI just dont see enough for sale to have an idea what they are worth
>>23435429Where do I get the 'Acura' infill for the front bumper for my TL
>>23457679decal you mean? endlessrpm.com has it all.
Posting my old hondas
Got a friend at work with a V6 Silverado so I was able to get my car home.
>>23461866It's really hard to get cars off those dollys so we just hit the gas in the truck and it rolled right off. I wanna pull the engine out, get the bolt sorted, then probably respray the bay wrinkle black.
>>23461878Hatch is officially retired from the game. Sedan is out of retirement. It hasn't delivered since 2016 I think?
>>23461891The sedan might make a better work vehicle, especially if you can get some AC going.
My neighbor is selling a 2000 civic ex. It’s got 164k miles on it. I know for a fact that for the past 70k miles he beat the shit out of it, but somehow it’s still miraculously going without any problems. For 1k$ should I get it? Body is clean and rust free.
>>23462311A Honda can have the living daylights beat out of it if it's been having the maintenance done, an EJ Civic from 2000 that moves under it's own power is the best $1000 car anyday.
>>23462206Yeah all the parts are in it so I'm gonna see if I can get it working before summer returns. Pic related is what I want my bay to look like. Wrinkle black.
I have a 2013 Civic Si that needs new tires. I would like to run Direzza ZIII. I do not want to mount these on stock wheels. I think they are ugly.Im looking around for aftermarket wheels. 17x8 +45 or so. Is this a good size? What tire size is best for that?My car is stock height, I have no plans to lower it. No fenders, no camber. Not looking for wheel brand recommendation, just size.
talk me out of buying a 20 year old HR-V
is D15Z8 84kw a good engine?
,folded 1000 times my ass
Nothing crazy or special but all of my daily drivers have ever been Honda’s and I just can’t give them up. I love Honda’s and even though this year and model is no sports car or Ferrari, I think it’s the best looking 4 door accord they’ve ever made
>tfw impress car bros>tfw ladies jump in automatically (the hardest part is to drop them)Nice car my dudes. Greatest experience on the road ever.
Thinking about buying this honda Accord 2015 sport with automatic transmission.The guy is asking for 8,200 dollars.It has 65k miles on it.
>>234652339th generation sport is the best they've done, wrapping those 19s cost some dough when it needs tires but it's worth it.>>23465538Good deal
HelloI purchased this GTR
>>23465768Damn del didn't know you liked thicc cars
>>23465775Not normally but this one is making 600+ at the wheels so its not too bad
What gay baby retards. Get a RAM. My truck is better than all these little baby fagot cars LOL. My dad got a truck, I got a truck, my son will get a truck. Fuck this thread shouldn't even be online it's so pathetic. Get a job, get out of your mama's basement and man up. Buy a RAM. Here's mine. I can take any of these cars any day of the week and get more pussy than you ever will. Queers. HAHA QUEERS.

Is a 2013 manual fit with 130k for $6000 a good deal? It's the sport hatchback. Lost my 96 civic recently, and have recently liked the fit style.
>>23470671That's a nice car for $6000, I don't think you'll have as much fun with a torsion beam rear end and Macpherson struts as compared to a fully independent double wishbone Civic from the 90s, but the Fit is manual and it's a good car.
>>23470704Thanks, I've only ever driven the civic. Never did anything crazy with it though. Simple daily driver, to work, college, etc. Never even went over 75 with it.
>>23470715>Simple daily driverIt'll do just fine, those cars will run forever with normal maintenance.
>>23469760>Dodging chicks>Ramming dudes
>>23464032seriously though>cheap>stupid>cuteI love it
>low power>no double memebone>terrible tuning potential / pricehow do/should I cope?
>>23473096Macpherson strut costs less, you can spend mad money having 4 struts mounted and new lower control arm bushings pressed in, it got so crazy, Honda dropped the wishbone on the Accord because Accord owners dont want to deal with that shit even though it drives nice.
>>23473096it's such a clean looking car though, that's worth it
Checking inCar is fucking nuts
>>23474114>mfw del having fun in a fucking auto
>>23474134The C8 is a DCT and I like it too The key ingredient is the car has to be pretty fast and fun to drive The GTR is brutally fast and has a valved exhaust that is bueno
>>23473096the worst civic ever made. i would K swap it
>>23474207Makes sense. Manuals are always fun but autos have a minimum power requirement to be fun like the C8 and GT-R.
>see neighbor starting her 2003 while checking mail>stalls 3x because shit IACV and makes the sound of air in the PS lines on the way outBased CM still working even when it's not taken care of.
I've a question - what's the street rep of the first gen TSX? Are they loved, are they hated, are they misunderstood? What's the deal?
>>23474336>200HP 7200 rpm motor>comes in a 6MT>5AT knows exactly what to do at all times>double wishboner>comfy>capable of over 500,000 milesWho wouldn't want a 1st gen TSX? It pleases street racers and dads.
>>23474114GT-R will be my next, after I pay off the FK8
>>23474114Perfect car to weekend or daily
any bay area ppl? will an integra get stolen if I buy one?
Finding a Gen 1 Honda Insight in my area is such a pita. I just wanna go super slow and get stupid good mpgs. Why did they only make 13k of them bros :(
>>23476941Get an L15 Fit Anon, that's a sick car for saving fuel, and it's gonna be nothing to keep it running.
>>23476944I have a gen 2 fit atm. Just wanted an Insight to tinker on. My friend uprgraded his to have lithium batteries and a small turbo and it was so much fun to drive. Wanna do something like that to the one I get, they are so rare nowadays though.
>>23463592someone give me some tire numbers please. i need new tires, i dont want to use stock wheels. whats a good tire for a 17x8 wheel?
>>23476941They made 17000 and faggots merged onto the highway at 25 miles per hour and got creamed, they crushed them when the batteries died, or they tried to cheap out on maintenance and fucked them to oblivion. Now there’s 13000
>>23477295It’s a damn shame. The batteries on them never really truly die. All you have to do is power cycle them by completely discharging them and then gridcharging back up to full every 6 months or so. That’s what my friend did from 170k to damn near 300k when he switched to lithium.
what tires are you lads running? I just blew a tire and replaced it with a used tire so I'm mismatched atm but the rest of my tires are just about at minimum tread anyway. I know commuter tire differences are marginal aside from weather-specific but a suggestion or two would be nice. 05 tsx btw
>>23479775I'm a big simp for Hankook Kinergy PT.>90,000 mile warranty>Fucking 860AA treadwear rating, unmatched>Relatively cheap considering how long they lastI got them on both my Civics. My hatch has been rolling on them for almost three years now and I do over 20k miles a year.
How do I get more power out of my k20?
>>23479775I run chinese Lexani tires that suck ass if the ground gets wet, but it's usually sunny here and their 45 dollars a tire, ideally if you're not a cheap ass like me, you'll want to run a nice Japanese tire like Falken, Firestone, Bridgestone, or a Korean Hankook kinergy the speed rating is often higher and the tread design is better and you'll often get more miles out of them but you'll be spending around $85 a tire or more for the good stuff, I think its worth it, they're true all seasons where my chinks will spin like crazy if theres even a little water or ice on the ground.

thinking of getting a brand new accord 2.0T. how fast is this thing? what can I beat?
>>23482579It throws blows with the old 278HP Accord V6s, often beating them even though it's 252HP because the dual clutch just rips.
>>23482579>newFind a used one and save thousands.
>>23482288I'd rather have these and feel like a million bucks driving it, look like a million bucks and have 4WD, how much HP you nihgas gonna throw at FWD?
>>23482864>I'd rather have a bottom of the barrel, beat to fuck GTR.
>>23482875A GT-R can stack the miles and take abuse, some psychotic fuck put 140K on it and it's interior was all worn because cheap ass Nissan, but it still worked.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hPe2KFAd77I
>>23482864alternatively just do both high horsepower FWD is hilarious to drive and makes me giggle
>>23482883>he got 90k miles before the transmission needed replacing>20k for a new one>6-7k for a rebuild.
>>23427764>fix miata>turn it on, see that it works>turn it off and clean garage>lose keys in the process>theyre nowhere to be foundeither they somehow fell down into the engine bay or my friend took them when he left. man, i just wanted the s2k to have the garage to itself.
>>23483308>90k miles before the transmission needed replacingThat's fucking based for a supercar, Ferarris are fucking junk and they put on 15,000 miles in like 15 years cause the owners know it's a piece of shit and the mileage will lower the value dramatically.
>>23479816>>23479840Well at least it's nice to know you can squeeze that much power out of those engines. It's something I've always envied about the JZ engines, you can boost the fuck out of them and they still run reliably for the most part.
>>23484099A 2jz is still more rock solid desu, but yea the k20c1 isn’t bad stock. It can do around 400hp before needing a rebuild. The stock clutch also can withstand around 400hp, after that it slips and you need an upgrade
Finally found a rust free RSX-S (which is quite an achievement in Canada) recently but the guy put winter tires on and has been driving it all this winter. Previously it was never driven in winter at all baka.
I traded my 10th gen hatch for a 9th gen si. I have issues with my 10th gen's title. Should I just buy back my vehicle? I already put a clutch and was planning on full bolt ons for the 9th gen.
>>23486420I should mention that my title has been in gray area for about 5 months now.
>>23465233stupid sexy accords. apparently now is a good time to buy them if they're lowish mileage
>>23488269Ever since the new technology CV came out, the price of 9th gen is practically peanuts now, a decked out 9th gen EX-L with low mileage is costing less than a brand new 1.5L LX, I'd personally prefer a 10th gen LX because new thing good, very similar to when the CM was hot, I'd rather have a shitty DX CM5 with a K24 over a decked the previous gen EX 4 cyl or the 7th gen Civic EX that was costing $1000 less, the technology behind it is just worth it.
>>23488344fucking hell that suspension is clapped out lmao
>The last year of the last generation Prelude is now 20 years old.
>>23488576Still a nice looking GT car tho
>>23488600My only complaint is the back end is a little bland. Front has a unique look. And man, huge hood.
>>23488625>huge hoodIt's basically like an old pony car with a stubby butt and a long front end, shame Honda won't make GT cars like the legend and Prelude anymore, the Accord does everything because it's awesome like that, but it's still not technically a GT car.
I wish Honda would make a new 2-door hatch/coupe like the Lude or RSX.Nissan is still making Z's, and Toyota still makes Supra. Honda is too pussy to even try.
>>23488726Honda is making cars that sell, Toyota is making the Supra but no one seems to care, I'm out here where the Supra is hot and I've only seen a few of them, I see more C8 Vettes than Supras. It's unfortunate but Honda's doing what they have to do to live, the younger generation can't afford a sporty car, they made a 306HP Civic for those who want it, but that's all they seem to want to do or can do.
>>23488726>my parents had cars like the CRX, Civic Del Sol, Geo Tracker and other excellent cars they could buy brand new that had features like targa tops, power roll down rear windows, 2 door fastback designs or super cheap 4x4 drive trains with cloth roofs>I get none of the options listed whatsoeverModern cars are so fucking boring and featureless its infuriating.
>>23488795You have a warped view. CRX and others were slow as balls. You needed engine swaps to make them decent. The only fast cars were expensive.
>>23488811Millennial nostalgia is one hell of a drug
>>23457071>>23456983Or just change your own oil it's literally one bolt. Do you hire someone to change the lightbulbs in your house too?
>>23488855kek i was thinking about doing this the other dayhttps://www.s2ki.com/forums/s2000-modifications-parts-193/nsx-horn-button-flush-mount-mod-1204856/
>>23488872Aww c'mon Anon it's not like that, I pay $34, they change it and I don't even have to deal with the used oil, I don't need a creeper which would help, little ramps, tools, the cheapest 5 quarts of 5w-20 oil is $17 and the filter is $5 at autozone, so $22 to fuck around with your car which isn't even allowed where I'm living, when I can just pay the $34, get a free inspection for shit worn out or leaking on the car, it's a no-brainer.I do put in the cabin air filter and engine air filter in though, shits held in by screws.
>>23488889god i cannot believe people pay over 200 for a fucking silver horn button with either a gray or red H on it. its insane.
>>23488811I never said they were fast, I said they were fun and had actual features I would buy. Who fucking cares that modern cars are faster, they are numb and have no sensations of speed to them due to NVH and noise requirements.
>>23488938>tfw cars getting so advanced and nice nihgas are complaining about it
18 fag here, Just bought an 200k mile '01 Acura CL, thoughts? Tips? If its worth anything, I did an oil and coolant change.>CL in pic isnt my exact car btw
>>23488979Is this a 2.3L or a V6? doing coolant and oil on such a car is a good move, I'd suggest maybe throwing some spark plugs on it if you don't know when it was last done, that way you know they're not the issue should a misfire happen.
NewfagConsidering getting a 2015-2017 Civic, I mainly want an automatic. Are the civics mainly a cvt ricer?
>>23488986They're only rice if you cut the mufflers of like the mexicans do, the CVT is actually good.
>>23488982what? CL is a 3.2 Liter VTEC V6, same shit as the Accord and TL of the same era, also a spark change is actually a good idea. gonna suck ass tho since its transverse and also has 6 fucking sparks i need to buy. Imma set that up tho
>>23488995damn and the cooling fan doesn't work apparantly, anyone have any tips on how to diagnose a rad fan? on one of those CL V6s?>inb4 check fuses that mf fuse is good, although idk about the relay ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
>>23488995They had a 2.3L CL from 1998-1999 I believe, the whole car is basically an Accord coupe, if you can install the 6 plugs yourself that's fucking dope cause it's $195 to have them put in on a V6 by a shop.
>>23489003Yeah, luxurious as FUCK, and from what I can see, it shouldn't be too hard since Honda blessed me with enough space to reach the rear 3 sparks, only hitch is that i dont have experience with coil on plugs but i might be retarded and they're just as easy to replace as the wires in older civics.
>>23488990what about oil dilution? should i stick a 2.0L or is the 1.5L fine?
>>23489019They're both direct fuel injection motors, just change your oil every 3000 miles and it's fine.
Funny thing I read in the civic owners manual. For the 7 speed CVT, if you put it into manual (aka use flappy pedals to shift), the car will actually shift up when you reach the redline and shift down when it needs to.So essentially you can have a Auto CVT that goes across the revs
>>23488909Christ I was in a bad mood last night. Sorry about that. Sucks you can't work on your own car where you're living.It's less about the money and more about making sure it's actually done right. These places fuck up the oil and filters constantly. My dad lost an engine once cause Jiffy Lube straight up forgot to put the drain plug back in.
Bout to pull the trigger on a 2010 civic for $3500. It's got 180k but good maintenance history/no current issues. Just need it to last me a year and a half or so. Am I making a mistake? Have to drive it 3 hours back home.
>>23490001It's cool anon, instant oil change places seem to be trouble, I go to a live and tune where I get alot of work done or my local dealer alternative that uses oem parts and has it's own body shop and ive never had problems.
>>23490371>live and tuneLube and tune*
>>23490353Should be fine. Just try to address any shakes or noises before they become an expensive problem.
>>23490353>>23490925>decently maintained R18>lasting 1.5 yearsLel that car just won't go away
I bought a 02 accord with a f23 verve and a manual. It has 150000 miles in it how long for these usually last?
>>23490968If it was well maintained on the oil side, the 150,000 wouldn't matter to me, it's all about the maintenance, you can have a car with 130,000 miles that's a shitbox and can barely build oil pressure, and you can have a car with half million miles on it with perfect compression that's good to go, but an Accord will last as long as you're willing to pay to make it last, leaks on the engine can kinda get at you with the cost, and struts will really get at you because of how expensive they are to put in when they get worn and leaky, but that's what it takes to keep it on the road.
will installing a closed loop catch can between the pcv and the intake be problematicless? it's for a na b16
>>23491169It helps when you're beating on your car for less oil spray going into the intake.
>>23491176the gold filter unit won't restrict the intake manifold's vacuum?
>>23491203No the can just catches the oil that would go into your intake and be burned and gets to a certain fullness and you dump it, I've got a slow ass low revving engine and even that thing will consume oil when you go WOT.
>>23488726The reason the Lude went away is the the two door Accord of the time could do what the lude did but also had the appeal of being a bit more comfy and family oriented.
>>23491926>Nothing personal, ludeWhat killed it is the CM was just bad to the bone when it came out, you could drop a K20Z or even a K24A2 in some sort of 2000s prelude body and people would still be buying the CM7, the CM8 EX-L is pretty much a Legend coupe replacement, came in a 6MT if you wanted it, good stuff.
>>23491986now the funny thing is we dont have a 2 door accord anymoreor even a civic for that matter lmaoonly exception here is an nsx but thats acura
>>23492296It's not all bad Anon, at least the Civic and Accord are still fully independent suspension with that multi link rear. The Mazda 3 went from an independent multi link rear end to a torsion beam, so it's not gonna be nearly as nice as Honda's cars, I think the future is relatively bright.
>>23492296>or even a civic for that matterCivic Si is still going though, or will they kill that too?If I can't find a reasonably priced rust free RSX-S soon I'll get an FG4. Probably the closest looking coupe to the rsx
Speaking of Civics, Does the anon with the orange FG4 still post here? Haven't been here in a while
>>23492321i think the mazda3 is a really good commuter honestly you dont really feel the difference between the multilink and torsion under normal driving and its easier and cheaper to service. only problem here is that its more expensive than the civic which is a fatal blow imo. mazda3 as a performance model with the turbo is iffy to me though
Why is the Honda community and forums so fucking shit? Multiple times ive searched for information regarding my Integra build and theres almost always key information or guides missing for the most basic tasks and procedures. I just finished replacing my faulty ITM timing belt tensioner and the belt it almost chewed through and today I noticed that my new belt had wear again on the lobes and was making noise on cold start. Turns out that if you have aftermarket valve springs the stock tensioner spring pressure isn't enough to keep the timing belt tensioned properly. Now I have to replace the belt and take off all the accessories AGAIN and push up on the tensioner after replacing the worn belt with a new one. Why wasn't this mentioned in all of the fucking forum posts and guides? For such popular cars they are so poorly documented and its the first time I've experienced it with a platform. Even the fucking Geo Metro community has better guides and proper information.
>>23492482Because the people who volunteered to write guides about replacing your timing belt tensioner didn't take into account the fact that a small number of you guys are gonna have aftermarket valve springs of all things.These guides were written by volunteers dude, not professional honda master technicians.
>>23489019Oil dilution isn't a problem anymoret. 2018 honda civic si doing oil every 5k without any excess oil coming out of the pan.
>>23492514>of all thingsConfirmed for never building an NA Honda. This isn't some rare modification with expensive parts, its one of 3 things to change when you want to make power with big camshafts and high revs. Its something that should definitely have been at least mentioned and I've never had this issue with crap guides and vague posts until I built a Honda
