#2066 of 2262 Re: 2001 Accord oil burns [brig7]
Jul 01, 2010 (12:05 pm)
I have a 2001 Accord with manual transmission and it also uses more oil
than is considered normal. I have had Honda and my own Independent mechanic check it out and they both say that they can find nothing wrong without tearing the
engine apart. My Accord runs fine other than the oil use and presently has 130,000
miles. I have noticed that the lower I keep the rpm's(5th rather han 4th gear) the less oil is used. My personal mechanic's guess is that one cylinder is responsible.
I should get a pressure check on all of them and see if that will discover more
but it runs so great that I haven't had it done. Regardless if one cylinder is bad
I won't spend the money because it would take a decade or more to recover the
relatively small amount of money spent on oil.
I should note it has been this way for over 50,000 miles without other issues.
#2067 of 2262 98 Accord chooses when to start
Jul 12, 2010 (4:30 am)
I have a 98 v-6. Just replaced the ignition switch a year ago for the 2nd time, new destributer a year ago also. Car just started wanting to not start here and there, but then about 30 secounds later starts and runs like a top. Any suggestions what could be causing it to do this. It may not do it for 10 starts then do it 2 or 3 times in a row. Thanks for any help

I think I need a Brake Light Switch for my 2001 Accord V6.
I did the diagnostic that was in the manual and this is what is wrong.
How much should this cost approximately at an independent shop? At the dealer?

Where is the physical location of this connector? I've looked all over the engine comparment but nothing looks like a cannister with hoses and valve. Sure appreciate the help.
#2074 of 2262 Accord Radiator replacement
Aug 11, 2010 (6:45 pm)
Hello, I have a 2002 Accord Special Edition with 84,000 miles and just had the radiator replaced for $840 - Our family has had an 89 & 2000 Civic, 87 Accord, 2000 CRV - we pass them around to college students. None of them needed a radiator replaced and the 87 Accord and 89 Civic had almost 200,000 miles. Has anyone else with the model had the same issue? The dealer told me it wasn't a defect but he did say it was leaking at the seam. I was thinking of turning this car over to a family member and getting another Honda but now I am rethinking that idea. I already replaced the ball joints shortly after the warrently ran out - those are two big repairs and the car has a lot less miles than the other Honda's in our family.

$840 for a radiator seems like an obscene amount of money. I think mine cost between $300 and $400 installed by my dealer on my '96 several years ago.
My grandmother has an '02 LX 2.3L Automatic with no mechanical issues at all. The only thing that's been replaced is wiper blades and tires! 100k miles thus-far. It even has original brakes front and rear.
