Problem Reported: Warped Front Brake Rotors May Cause Vibration When Braking
September 15, 2010, 10:07 PM
<p>The front <a href="/brake-rotor" class="ct_glossary tooltip">brake rotors</a> can warp and cause a vibration when braking. You will feel vibrations in the brake pedal and the steering wheel. The rotors should be replaced to correct this issue. Using high-quality rotors is highly recommended. The OEM parts are best for brake repairs but some aftermarket rotors can work well. It's always good to ask your mechanic to use rotors they've seen the best results from.&nbsp;</p>

Problem Reported: Check Engine and D4 Lights Flashing
May 27, 2010, 11:08 AM
<p>Honda Accord models may develop shifting issues with the automatic <a href="/transmission">transmission</a>&nbsp;accompanied by warning lights. &nbsp;</p> <p>Rough shifting may occur, and the &ldquo;D4&rdquo; light and check engine may begin to blink. The <a href="/symptoms/check-engine-light">check engine light</a> will also illuminate, and <a href="/trouble_codes_1">OBD trouble codes</a> <a href="/OBD-II-Code-P0700">P0700</a>, <a href="/OBD-II-Code-P0730">P0730</a>, <a href="/OBD-II-Code-P0740">P0740</a>, <a href="/OBD-II-Code-P0780">P0780</a>, P1768 and/or P1768 will be stored in the computer.</p> <p>If the transmission shifts roughly, the failure is very likely mechanical failure of the transmission. If the transmission performs normally, a faulty sensor, or dirty<a href="/automatic-transmission-fluid"> transmission fluid</a> may be the case.</p> <p>In most cases, it is necessary to use professional diagnostic equipment to provide a diagnosis, and complete the repair.</p> <p>The longevity of the transmission is dependent on strict adherence to the manufacturer's recommendation for ATF <a href="/how-to-pick-a-maintenance-schedule">replacement intervals</a> and procedure.</p>
