    Tires cupping/feathering?

    looks like that tire is a little choppy. get some new rear struts & alignment. might have to get some new tires too, depending on how bad they are. I see tires like this everyday at work. its usually an alignment or suspension issue, or sometimes even just cheap *** tires. stay away from cooper...

    broken manifold stud

    hey I was just wondering if anyone else has had this (possible nightmare) problem before? one of the studs for the exhaust manifold broke, luckily level with the flange and not the cylinder head...

    Car Won't Start!

    KEY NEEDS TO BE PROGRAMMED!!!! if its just a straight up key with no chip then you're never going to get your car started with it. those keys are only good for unlocking your door. if you can't find your original keys, call your honda dealership and see if they'll give you the "brake code" to...

    just got one side done. gives me a chance to paint my calipers too while I'm at it. I used a dremel and probably spent an hour boring out the fork. after about 5 tries, I finally bored it enough and the strut slid all the way down. the damn dremel gets hot fast so I gotta stop and let it cool...

    DIY: "Boat look" Remedy for Accords on Lowering Springs

    I bought H&R springs with the 1.75'' rear and 2.25'' drop in the front and I was really hoping I wouldn't have the boat look. I was so pissed when I lowered the lift and noticed how obvious it was. I'm going to finally try the remedy tonight. the forks are only like 40 bucks a piece, so if I...

    goodbye accord... hellooo????

    as a mechanic, I'd buy a honda pilot or a CRV just because they're a little more reliable and easier to work on than the subarus are.

    Groaning Sound from rear of car

    I knew a dude with a 97 that did the same thing. It was somewhat loud tho, nothing like a fuel pump. Does this happen all day long or just after you park it?
