    Any plumbers on here

    Hi Wondering if we had any plumbers on here who could help advise me on an issue I’m having. Seem to be suffering from what is known as ‘water hammering’ when closing taps upstairs in the house. Never had this before and recently started. Any ideas on fix/investigation?

    Automatic gearbox problem

    You really need to take it to a transmission specialist who can look at it. We’ve not had any auto problems on here for the Accord. You’ve done the obvious by changing the fluids etc.

    Stolen Exhaust

    I suspect you may need to have other parts of the exhaust relaxed as it won’t be just a bolt back in job. If they have cut it off then there will be no flanges for the car to bolt back to. However an exhaust specialist can advise and maybe even get round this

    jumping out of gear

    From the symptoms sounds like a synchro issue with 5th gear. Either way will need to strip gearbox to find out which can be costly. Maybe a second hand box will be better. Labour wise it will take a good few hours to do, maybe all day.

    Intermittent Wiper Fault

    Are you running these when it’s dry? If so I suspect you have rain sensors which are restricting the wipers to run with it not detecting water. Try hosing the car down whilst it’s on that setting
