    Gets stuck in park irratically. And maybe unrelated, there is an engine rattle.

    Sorry the simple checks i suggested in your first post now irrelivant in light of your latest findings.Maybe someone with knowledge of these boxes can point you in the right direction? Id be interested to know your mileage and gearbox service history (oils etc) as i understand they are...

    Engine revs up. Can't get in reverse.

    Oh check small hoses on and around intake manifold.Theres 2 i think with one being a vaccum hose....check closely for cracks/splits and make sure connected properly.You will need to remove small engine cover (2x10mm nuts) good luck.

    Engine revs up. Can't get in reverse.

    Almost certain to be throttle related.Dirty butterfly,air leak,sticking throttle cable/mechanism and or intake sensor.Just a case of stripping it down and checking everything clean and working correctly.

    Air Con Woes

    Yes as above...the solution will be there! Btw i wasn't advising removing your AC lol i just didn't need it so seen no point chasing solutions to fix it.Glad your heat comes through and at the correct temperature so you have ruled out a few things already....good luck.

    Lower control arms.

    Hi.I fitted one of these cheaper ebay lower arms last year and did the other last week.After 1 year with the OS fitted its aged well so decided use same again for NS.I suspect the steel between the arm and rubber bushing will rot out after 3/5 years,especially the forward mount which is where...

    Today I have been mostly..........new intermediate driveshaft fitting.

    Great write up! Interesting you mention the clink/clunk when switching from forward to reverse.Mines a 2.0 auto and has always driven perfectly but i do sometimes get that as said.Should i be concerned about my driveshafts? Never had any vibrations at any speeds or loads but if its possible i...

    Power Steering Fluid Leak [Genuine vs Aftermarket Parts]

    My cooler pipes not best,lots of surface rust on it when i bought car 3 years back.I coat it in grease every couple of months and looks fine now.Maybe ill actually replace it eventually lol but without the grease it would defo have rotted out by now.

    Air Con Woes

    Blowing warm not hot could be a clogged heater matrix or cabin thermostat.My AC finally stopped working last month although everything seemed to be in order.So as i have a sunroof and rarely used the AC i decided to rip it out.Removed compressor,pipework condensor etc and fitted a short belt.

    Ball joint nuts

    Jobs done and fitted with the supplied nylock nuts,didn't bother wasting my time fitting my own cotter pins.Required some force to lock these nuts up and IMO you would have a hard time removing them with a breaker bar never mind naturally working loose lol. Feel stupid having asked the original...

    FRV advice.

    Sorry not accord but still honda...im looking to buy a petrol FRV maybe with the same 2.0 i have in my 7th gen accord tourer.Any tips/advice things to watch for especially mechanically? Always fancied one as a daily as they seem super practical ie with the extra seat.

    Ball joint nuts

    I totally agree with you! I was just looking for anyone with experience of using these on what is the most critical of components.I will use the supplied nuts and should i ever need to remove the nyloc then ill simply replace the nut.These are a single use item from my experience.Also i have...

    Ball joint nuts

    Thanks guys.I guess the nylock nuts will be fine as long as theyre not removed in which case id replace it.Much smarter minds than mine design test and make these parts i just couldn't get my head around a lack of castle nuts lol. Just for my own peace of mind i will fit a cotter pin just below nut.
