I have absolutely no idea. I just know that the check engine light was on and the Honda dealership was eager to say it needed the new catalytic converter. The place that sold it didn't know what was wrong but they were willing to fix it without charge once they figured it out-- if we'd been able to bring it back another day-- but it's 4 hours away from us.Are you sure it's not just a bad 02 sensor? What exact code was turning the engine light on?
I think my bro took it to an Autozone before buying it but I don't know what the code said. Our friend moved from working at Autozone to O'Reilly's but they still have a computer checker thing there. Right now he's having a problem with the air conditioning. It wasn't working before he bought it but they fixed it at the sales place so it was working great but now it just went out again. It only blows hot air.Yep, go to a local Midas Muffler or Autozone Auto Parts (and many others). They will run the faulty codes, decipher for you, all for free.
Yeah. I remember my friend complaining that they don't have any that read '95 and he has a '95 chevy. My bro still needs to sell that hunk of junk 95 chevy he has sitting in front of the car port. We still need to get that thing fixed (the car port).Anything but a '95. You can buy a code reader on Amazon for about $50. I have both
OBD 1 and OBD 2.
They look very pretty. They have the front that looks more like the Gen2 (or are they gen3?) CR-Vs. They have a lot of features I like-- including the flatter sides on the pickup bed. But I don't like the center console & shift mechanism and the trunk has less capacity than the Gen1. Considering that the trunk was the main selling point (although safety and how they handled on the road was also high on the list), I wouldn't want a smaller one. There are more options for tonneau covers though. But they still did not come with a locking tailgate so you'd have to go out and buy a pop&lock or DIY your own tailgate lock for it.Speaking of Ridgeline, have you seen the 2017's? They look just like a pick up truck and no longer have the sloped sides. I kinda like it. How about you folks?
That would be really cool. My bro had to buy the deal twice. I think it was $30 for it and the first time he was about to put it on and a huge gust of wind came through and made it fold up on itself and stick to itself so he couldn't get it untangled. Second one he had two friends help him with it and it still has some bubbles. It didn't turn out quite the way he'd hoped, but it still looks neat.I bought a vinyl cutter to make decals like that one, I just need to learn how to use it.
I had a Mazda 6 Sportwagen, a friend had one just like it. His check engine light came on and it needed $3500 worth of new catalytic converters (it had 2 of them). I got rid of mine before I hit the same mileage as he had on his. The cats on those are good for 120-140K miles.I have never had the cat converter changed on a vehicle in my life. It is almost impossible for one to go bad.
