From what I have read the car has what is called DUAL SCROLL AC. Normally the electric battery runs the AC but when it gets really hot outside calling for more AC the system switches from electric to belt driven AC. What seems to me to be happening is when the car switches to belt driven AC it stops blowing cold.

This has happened a few times when it was 90 degrees or hotter out and happened in the middle of the dead heat. But earlier in the day and later in the night the AC worked fine on the same days.

Primarily I noticed this in idle or at low speed in stop and go traffic, then when I went on the highway it worked again. If in idle if I revved the engine it would somewhat cool but not at top performance and because I was driving downtown in stop and go traffic it was not a big help.

Any ideas what would cause this?

After it dies you have to wait 10-15 min to start it.if it starts at all the other new ITE it didn't start at all. I'm driving check engine lite goes 2-5 min later it dies.

Got in car this morning. There was a strong raw gas odor. Soon noticed a gas leak on pavement.

I was in an accident and had repairs done to the front passenger front end and when I got it back from the repair shop I had no radio and cant even play cd's it just keeps telling me to enter code and I can not find any answers in the vehicle book. Please help need tunes

this harness carries power windows, locks, interior lights and more- wires pulled out shutting down power lock, each wire is minute[small packed with grease and next to impossible to repair]
Any one knows the correct terminology, I call it a sub wire harness ? thanks replacing that instead of tracing and repacking those tiny wires i need what little sanity i have left.

Ridgeline has 160,000 kms on it. This noise is very similar to the noise made when you drive over the "rumble strip" on the side of the highway. This rumble comes and goes. Typically only happens on highway, driving under load. Noise stops when I ease up on the gas pedal. My feeling is noise is coming from the rear end.

I bought my 94 Honda Accord EX new in 1994 (It is now 2014) 196,000 miles & she runs great ! I have noticed the last couple of years, I can drive a short distance in warm & cooler weather (Live in central valley Ca) When I return home the fan will usually run for a few minutes. Sometimes, not but 90% of the time. My Honda has never overheated. I do worry about driving longer distances ... Should I have it looked @ or replaced ? I'm hesitant to run my AC during these times as well. Any input would be appreciated ! Thank-you !

I was installing a new in dash radio, and then a 12" pioneer sub and 1200 amp, in to the wires that were already installed in the car from a previous owner. May have hooked up wires back words or wrong.. But now the car won't start turns on fine, radio works.. Not amp or sub, cranks fine, and won't start with a jump so it's not the alternator, also checked all the fuses.. Anything I'm missing??

seems to be front end sound, mechanic A)doesn't hear sound, B) replaced a bunch of stuff for 1000$ and its better but still makes sound occasionally

I picked up a 98 Civic EX recently that seemed fine up until it began billowing white smoke from the hood and my vents. Friend checked the oil and it was all burned up. I parked it and haven't started it since. If I just wanted to try to recoup some losses, would it be worth fixing it to sell it again, or should I sell it to some "We buy junk cars" place?

Honda muffler was fine and check engine repair worked with rebuilt catalytic converter. Had ordered flow master muffler prior to repair. After installation of flow master light back on. Reset computer. Came back on and still on. Help?

Vibration was really visible when the engine was cold, i can see whole car is vibrating including moonroof. Also rumbling noise at low speeds(20-30MPH) either accelerating or decelrating..Initially mechanic only found bad front motor mount and fixed it.However no change to vibration or noise. Seems like left(driver) mount is also new and I checked passenger side mount, it look OK to me(no tear).. What could be the issue with vibration / noise ?

So booked at honda dealership in Houston, since our car was born there we decided would be the best place to change timing belt, and other bits and pieces needed done, also they changed fuel pump cover and seal as it was a call back from honda.
Now fuel gauge won't read the fuel.

Any ideas?? We took to another honda dealer here in corpus but they don't have a clue, and said all the other honda garage done was right.

This problem never happen till things was done to it on Saturday.

Help pls

has a new battery. once there was a problem with the starting, I called a certified mechanic. he came the next day but the van started then every time he tried. and he left . but van did not start after only 2 days. again started ok the next day, and i took it to the mechanic to change the stater with a new one. but after 2 days, it would not not start again. this time there is no click sound even. although the lights came on bright.

my engine is dr4opped down why.

I drove it a short distance and it seemed fine. I cant complete the repairs for a few days possibly a week and am curious if I will do any damage by driving it with just front wheel drive.

I have know known leaks. Radiator has been replased. Fans only come on when car is off. Are they sup post to come on while car is running too. I can't find any other cause.

Believe around wheel around right side. Been making a tic tic tic when quietly for a little bit now when apply brakes make very loud tic tic sound wish I could post recording eh. Just had new front brake installed not to long ago but quiet tic tic was before that. When ever I was it to make noise for someone to hear it won't it just does it usually when I first drive car..

When you turn the key's everything work but when you try to start the engine turn but it doesn't try to start.

I unpluged the MAP sensor to clean the idle air control valve (which I realize is unnecessary) it turned out that I didn't have the right size socket so I didn't actually do any work to my car at all. So I shut the hood and started the car so I could go get the right size socket but when I started the car the check engine light was on and the car was running very poorly. It only took me a few seconds to realize I forgot to connect the MAP sensor. So I opened the hood and pluged it back in but it didn't solve the problem, My car ended up dieing, after 15 minutes it finally started back up but now it idles very low just under 500 rpm and it acts like it is going to stall on me but it has only done that one time. It drives fine but when I come to a stop the rpm's drop below 500 and it comes very close to stalling. The car ran fine before the MAP sensor was disconnected. I took it to the auto parts store for a diagonistic test and the error code read that it was the MAP sensor. Bought a new map sensor but that didn't help. The car is still doing the same thing and the check engine light is still on.
