the very first thing you must do is check the transmission fluid level, color and smell. it should be to the full mark, a reddish color and not smell burnt. then you need to have a code reader put on the vehicle to find out what fault code is turning on the check emissions lights. if you do not have a code reader then you need to take the vehicle to AutoZone and they will do it for free. write the codes down and let me know what they are.

the code for the check emission system is P0128 and for check transmission fluids is P0847

well once you replace the switch, the p0847 will be fine. then you need to let me know how the test on the thermostat goes.

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA

Thank you very much for saving my daughter and her family a lot of money on her Honda. You are definitely on my list for future help. Thanks, again.

FredUSA

I just heard from my mechanic. You were right...a $45.00 job. THANK YOU!! Your response was received in less than 10 minutes!!

Linda B.USA

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK
