    Vibrating in Reverse Gear

    My brother has just bought a toyota rav4 hybrid auto 2.5l petrol and let me drive it to the pub the other night. It has 194bhp apparently and was a totally different experience to my honda. Much more comfortable ride with it's bigger wheels and higher profile tyres, softer suspension and...

    Paintwork on my Tourer

    I ordered a can of spray to touch up my front bumper, using the paint code. The spray that arrived was definitely not a match so I contacted the seller about it. He asked if I could send him a part off the vehicle for them to match. I removed a plastic bolt cover from the rear bumper and sent it...

    Vibrating in Reverse Gear

    It is a shame that on a lot of vehicles these days a problem is not easily solvable. I spend hours on specific sites trying to solve issues that have a multitude of possible fixes. We have a problematic nissan note, a mercedes sprinter with a limp mode problem, my honda that is so far running...

    What a ridiculous statement, please try and find an example of that ever happening.

    Puff of smoke at start up

    I had that when I bought my accord, the egr pipe was cracked. The cost of repair was almost as much as having an egr delete and remap, so I went for the latter.

    Puff of smoke at start up

    Hopefully just the cold conditions fingers crossed. Would the worst scenario be a head gasket starting to blow?

    Puff of smoke at start up

    I don't think so, haven't checked the coolant level though. Wouldn't I get a warning light if the coolant was low?

    Puff of smoke at start up

    I have been getting a puff of white smoke on starting for a while now when cold. The car has had a remap, egr blanked and dpf removed. Any ideas what the cause may be?

    Ball joint nuts

    The fact is that honda replacement ball joints are being manufactured and sold with lock nuts instead of the split pin stuff. NOT by Honda I might add as clearly pointed out by Sayama.. Honda spares are very expensive, suffice to say I never buy honda parts directly from the supplier, so I...

    Rear caliper information

    You will be able to find the part you need on here: https://www.lingshondaparts.com They sell the service kit on there but it's about £60 for mine. I bought a caliper service kit off ebay when mine was seizing, still good now after 18 months.

    Diesel holding back at 3000 rpm

    It could be the egr valve is gunked up. My wife had the same symptoms on her Nissan Note 1.5 diesel. Fortunately egr removal was quite easy and it was full of soot. Cleaned it out and it runs really good. I still need to check the feed pipe to it when I get the chance, bit of a longer job that.

    Ball joint nuts

    I've never had a problem with a nylock locking nut in my life. They do the job they are designed to do very well and I've never had one come loose or strip itself. The nylock part of the nut is confined to a small section at the top so does not affect the overall strength of the nut.
