    Binding brakes

    Took it apart and think found the problem. Was rusty right at the top of the cylinder above the seal and causing the piston to jam. Cleaned it all up so the current piston now slides cleanly and then ordered a new piston kit. Fingers crossed !

    What have you done to your Accord lately?

    New power steering hose from pump to rack on 2.2 diesel. Very fiddly and messy job but got there in the end. Also new front disks and pads to relieve a horrendous warped disk vibration !

    2006 Accord not started in a year

    The fuel may well have gone off so it may need flushing through or at least topping up with lots of fresh. Do no harm to drain the oil and refill it with fresh. If it's petrol then take the plugs out and crank it over until the oil light goes off before you start it so you know you have...

    Power Steering Fluid Leak (genuine vs Aftermarket Parts)

    Many people have successfully made their own from copper pipe so I would say the eBay one is well worth the risk

    The AA now doing air bag recall work!

    Honda have been chasing me for years regarding the air bag recall and never got around to arranging it with a dealer but just had another letter today saying that an AA technician can now come out to me and do it at my home! Will give them a ring tomorrow and try to arrange it. :)

    Timing chain replacement interval

    I can't fnd a recomendation for gearbox oil change all the way up to 200,000 miles but changing it will certainly not do any harm and can do wonders in terms of the shift feel.
