Engine whine is still a problem as it comes and goes. To achieve these power gains, the engine has a higher compression ratio, new valve timing, and intake and exhaust flow improvements. Decided to do both sides. Just preventative - no squeaking and no leaking according to the technician - with 133,000 miles I did it as a preventative measure! Failed coil pack was identified and replaced. Dealer said they could not replicate. Front rotors were worn out. There was also an oil leak from the valve cover gasket that was also replaced.
My father in law, a retired mechanic, replaced the alternator for me. Replaced leaking oil pressure switch. The exhaust manifold is integrated into the cylinder-head casting in the rear of the transversely mounted engine. Mechanic took apart the door and had to tighten up some nuts. Sometimes, unusual noises in the front of the engine can be heard as well as leaking coolant caused overheating and Check Engine Light was illuminated.
How many miles do you have? If they find engine damage I expect at my expense. Aside from routine fluid changes and inspections, the first scheduled engine tune-up is not required for 100,000 miles or more may vary with driving conditions. Replaced power steerign O-ring and flush power steering. Likely will rebuild engine not sure of details. I assumed it was the timing sensor, I took the car in and the mechanic said the oil pan was dry and that the timing chain was stretched and time tensioner was shot as well and the cam for the valves were bent. Technical posts are welcome here however.
Replacement necessitated removal of transmission, so clutch assembly was replaced as incidental work. As a result, shift shock is reduced significantly during upshifts and downshifts. Unless the tension-er has failed the chain is fine. This may have been the reason for it failing in the first place. Car had made clanking noise and greenish water was coming out. I think it was a lubrication issue.
Large-diameter pipe sizes throughout the exhaust system increase flow; beyond the under-floor catalytic converter, the exhaust system passes through a pre-chamber under the second-row floor, and then splits just behind the rear axle to feed into free-flowing dual silencers and chrome exhaust tips. Apply air to the advance hole to release the lock. The transmission can be shifted manually via new steering wheel mounted F1®-style paddle shifters at the driver's option. Honda has stated they are working on an updated part to correct the issue. You should never buy their products.
Took in for estimate with oil change. This allows the catalytic converter to be positioned very close to the cylinders for swift light-off after a cold engine start. Had shop replace all 4 coils and 4 spark plugs. . Replaced both drive shaft assemblies with reman. I limped into the dealership, but it was after three on and off engine cycles.
Using Original Equipment replacement parts is the best way to maintain the quality and performance of your Acura and we are the easiest and most economical way of providing you with that quality. Occurs too slowly for Acura 160 mi away to reproduce on their own. I can't find a solid answer online. But about a month later we got the indicator again and sure enough it was low. Had diagnostic test run on it and turned out it was the water pump. The pressure-cast cylinder block has a bed-plate type main bearing cap that results in a highly rigid assembly, which helps to resist vibration. Ordered replacement heat shield online and replaced myself.
See Acura owner websites for the same complaint. Problem is still not fixed. Should not fail with so little mileage! Ill get maybe -1 at times +1 from the datalog. Replaced fitting between exhaust manifold and catalyst. Replaced fitting between exhaust manifold and catalyst. Questions: Is this doing harm to the engine? Please message the mods if your submission gets removed or marked as spam. Despite dealer service bulletin and 2005 repair to prevent trunk wire pinch near left trunk hinge, several wires became severed anyway.
To provide more spirited driving, the manual transmission now includes more performance-minded ratios for second and third gears. A digital display in the tachometer face indicates which gear the transmission is in when the steering wheel paddles are active. The result is stronger throttle response and better acceleration just about everywhere in the engine's operating range. Radiator required removal to facilitate new drain plug replacement. These vehicles are equipped with certain air bag inflators assembled as part of the passenger frontal air bag modules used as original equipment or replacement equipment.
Update from Oct 1, 2014 : For everyone that is having this same issue, it's most likely the engine pistons and piston rings that need to be replaced. The steering-wheel mounted Sequential SportShift F1®-style paddle shifters are activated when a fingertip pull of the right paddle commands an upshift or a pull of the left paddle commands a downshift. Clutch and flywheel were replaced at the same time. Acura has only stated that oil change interval is not what they want to see. Several hundred dollars later, no more sounds. I limped into the dealership, but it was after three on and off engine cycles.
