    Spacemonkee's '00 AV6 4door (No 56K)

    Thanks, Red. Always wanted a first gen. Found this one and decided to jump on the purchase because of the SR5 features which are hard to find. Power - steering, windows, mirrors and door locks along with the moon roof and sweet "off road" gauge set complete with altimeter, roll gauge and pitch...

    FS: Spacemonkee23's 2000 Accord V6 sedan

    Hey everyone, I've decided to get back into the truck world. Never been a FWD fan plus I miss my old truck too much and camping season is fast approaching too. With the accord having a new transmission its at it's most valuable. Ive put under 1500 miles on the rebuild and it has a 2 year...

    What did you do today Auto Detailing related?

    Thanks. It etched in quite a bit but I was able to get rid of them by making a few extra passes with the compound. I use cheap modeling clay from an arts and craft store to clay bar and use water/baby soap solution as lubricant. Cutting and polishing I use Meguiar's Mirror Glaze-Medium...

    Help: Turboing 2000 Accord V6 Sedan

    I would be more worried about the trans than the engine... How about a 6 speed swap first?

    What did you do today Auto Detailing related?

    Yeah, its more or less the same spot on the hood before and after. Couldn't see the reflection of the individual LEDs in the overhead lights before. HUGE difference in overall appearance. Could have spent more time and effort to get some of the more serious swirls out on some areas but ran out...

    What did you do today Auto Detailing related?

    Sneak Peak... My pops FD hadn't been detailed in 10+ years, let alone waxed is quite some time. Granted, it sits under a car cover in the garage for a majority and is only driven from time to time. Having said that, it got hit with a sprinkler during a hot day while parked and embedded water...

    Weird idle issues

    Sucks, sorry we couldn't help figure it out. Hard to diagnose over the interwebs. Good luck.

    What'd you do to your accord today?

    I just use goof off, wont hurt your paint and is good enough to get the residue off. There is very little residue left over after the rubber wheel process is done.

    Weird idle issues

    Just to check off another possibility, next time you have the scanner plugged in, check the live data of the coolant temp sensor and the loop conditions. Sometimes if the ECT sensor goes bad it could keep the car in open loop and could cause rich parameters.

    Weird idle issues

    Did you reset the ECU, clear codes and disconnect battery for a bit? the system needs to be cleared so it doesn't pick up where it left off. Edit: did you swap O2 sensors yet?

    Anyone getting a lot of this lately?

    Only got it once this morning. Never had it before and hasn't happened since.

    Weird idle issues

    I use a pair of needle nose pliers with rubber hoses over the jaws. If it is still not budging and there is some slack in the line you can cut/shorten it. Try to cut the line as close to the FPR nipple as possible then remove the stuck portion after you get it off the car.

    Weird idle issues

    Should be okay. Just make sure to inspect it to be sure its in good condition. You could carefully take it off and re-seat it.

    Weird idle issues

    Oops I misread that. Seems the O2 is switching but if its duration is significant between high and low voltage it could be a lazy sensor that may just need cleaning. I Dont think that is main the problem though. I'm still leaning toward FPR.

    Weird idle issues

    Typically, yes. When the ecu sees a lean mixture from the O2 sensor it will try to compensate by adding more fuel but cant compensate for more than a minor leak. Mostly you will see a lean mixture at ilde then it would correct itself at higher RPM. Thats not the case here From what I can tell...

    Weird idle issues

    Have you checked the Fuel Pressure Regualtor yet? Check its vacuum line for fuel and put on a vacuum hand pump to see if it holds vac.

    What'd you do to your accord today?

    Thanks for the Rep! Yes, that one will work. I have used a few different kinds, 3M are the only ones I havent had an issue with. Others will either strip the center out and become useless or will come off in chunks instead of "eraser" like shavings. Heres a quick Youboob vid I found of one...

    What'd you do to your accord today?

    It's possible to burn the paint but only if you hold it on one spot too long. 2 years of using it in a body shop and never had an issue. Don't need a lot of pressure just keep moving with it. Works like a charm.

    What'd you do to your accord today?

    Sucks, man. Do you have a rubber wheel? They work wonders for removing residue and decals.

    weird engine noise f23

    Sounds like rod knock to me. With the car running remove one spark plug wire at a time and see which one makes the noise go away, wear gloves and use pliers with rubber on the handle. I have a set of needle nose pliers with some rubber tubing around the jaws. Prob a spun bearing or something...
