#58 of 67 Fuel pressure regulator
May 24, 2010 (11:23 am)
I have a 2000 Honda GX with a with a Keihin fuel pressure regulator. It appears that the diaphragm is showing serious signs of wear and is need of replacement. Honda sales the FPR for $2,041.00, and apparently owns all the rights to exclusively sale this part. My mechanic has tried silicone glue on the dipragm for the time being but a better fix is needed. The FPR part # is 16740-PDN-A01. Any suggestions would be appreciated

That part number from Honda is the entire assembly...not so sure you would need that...autopartswarehouse has just the pressure regulator for under $100 with free shipping. I usually get my parts from AutoZone or Rock Auto Parts, but neither one of those seems to have it. Let me know what you find and if it fixes the problem. How did you know it was needing replacement without looking at it? Thanks!

The Autopartswarehouse system is wrong...very wrong. Your first clue should have been that they list the same regulator for both the "GAS, D16Y7" and the "CNG, D16B5" even going so far as to show the GX as having the D16Y7 engine. Pretty sad website if you ask me.
#61 of 67 Performance Mods on 2009 Honda Civic GX
Sep 24, 2010 (5:46 am)
I’ve got a 2009 Honda Civic GX and I’d like to see if I can squeeze a little more horsepower out of her by installing some typical performance upgrades like a high-flow air intake and opening up the exhaust. Can those kinds of performance mods be done on the GX cars without messing up anything else, like the on board computer, engine monitoring system, etc.? Please advise; thanks much! –

#66 of 67 replacing fuel cylinder
Sep 21, 2012 (12:50 pm)
I have a '98 GX. According to owner's manual and all the Honda dealerships, the fuel cylinder needs to be replaced at 15 yrs. This will cost >$7K, of which $6K is for the carbon fiber/fiberglass cylinder replacement.
A number of on-line suppliers sell a similar-sized (14" x 40.2", 7.3 gal.) but heavier (244 lbs). steel cylinder for $864, made by the Argentine company Kyoshi, which does meet DOT standards for vehicle fuel cylinders. However, the Honda dealerships refuse to install that product for "liability" concerns (read: less $ profit margin).
I have found a couple of shops, several hundred mi. from me (NoCal), who are certified to do CNG cylinder swaps, but they are concerned that the fittings for the steel tanks won't match the originals, won't know until they take it apart. This might mean extended period in the shop if more parts have to be ordered.
Just today I spoke with a used car dealer who is trying to unload a '98 GX, has NOT changed the cylinder, and claims that it's not necessary, because none of these tanks have ever failed, so long
as the vehicle has not been damaged.

No need to change unless it's leaking or been impacted due to an accident. If you're concerned, seek out a licensed inspector to have it re-certified.
