Customer Question
I HAVE A 1997...

I HAVE A 1997 HONDA ACCORD AND IT IS IDLING UP AND DOWN VERY RAPIDLY.....

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix with a Honda. The Honda Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.

OK

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?

IM TRYING

Mechanic's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Honda Mechanic should know about your Honda?

It is not common for the EGR valve to cause this issue. I service Honda every day so I see this often. Please give me some more details on the car? Is this a 2 door or 4 door? LX, EX, DX, SE, WAGON?

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

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

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

This expert is wonderful. They truly know what they are talking about, and they actually care about you. They really helped put my nerves at ease. Thank you so much!!!!
