The owners manual says that the timming belt should be inspected every 30,000 miles and replaced at 105,000 miles. I called the Subaru dealer to schedule this timming belt inspection, along with several other items, and the service person said that its not necessary. He said that he didn't know why that was in the manual as its not necessary.
My Honda is only driven about 4000 miles/year. I have had is three years and no service codes have shown up. I change the oil/filter annually per the owners manual. Will I ever see any of the service codes such as B-1, B-2, etc?
The lumbar support on the driver side power seat stopped working. I checked the fuse to the lumbar power and it was NOT blown. The Dealer said the switch had stuck and had burned out the lumbar motor. How is it that, that much of a short did not blow the fuse? The car is still wuder warranty and the dealer will fix it.
I can't seem to find any of the typical headlight aiming screws on my Accord. How do I aim the headlights?
It would be a nice convienance to be reminded when a service is due by time as well as mileage.
I'm aware of the transmission control module reprogramming recall. When I got my notification for that recall there was also a notice of "Product Update: Software Update to Improve Fuel Injector and VTC Timing" that was included in the mailing. It has something to do with oil ring deposits and consumption. Would you fill me in a little? Seems like there has been a similar problem for several years. Are they just now acknowledging the problem? How can I tell if this update has been done along with the transmission control update?
I keep looking at the different brands and they all carry the SN service level but some say synthetic, synthetic blend, full synthetic or conventional. What's best for my Honda?
This is the second ECU reprogram update for this vehicle. Will any of the re-programing help milage or power?
My Daughters Mini speedometer is off by 7 MPH. It reads 67 when she is doing 60. The car has the factory 205/45 17 Perelli tires and wheels. Is there a way to recalibrate the speedometer?
My 2010 Accord has 225/50 17 tires. Those low profile tires ride hard. According to a tire chart my tires are 26" in diameter. A 215/55 17 is 26.2" in dia. Would the down size to get a higher profile for ride quality cause me any issues. Both sizes are 94V rated.
