Hi, I’m Cary and I’ll be helping you today.
Please understand that I can't smell, hear, or touch the vehicle, so patience is appreciated. Before leaving the site make sure and leave me a rating. You can still reply to me as many times as needed, even after the rating..

I would have a used car inspection done by an independent source. Look for leaks, c.v. axles, worn suspension parts, brakes, etc. Most used car inspections cost $50.00 - $75.00. Do you have a local repair shop that you normally use?

using a Honda dealership for $147. They found a bunch of stuff. To have them fix it they want $6k. Trying to purchase the car for $4k. So I might purchase it and just fix the most needed stuff first. I was just wondering if there are specific issues with that vehicle that you knew about, such as if it is an interference engine regarding the timing belt. Or other issues like that. Do you know of any?

It does not have a timing belt. It is timing chain so that's good. What are they saying it needs?

we gave up on that vehicle now we are looking at a 2007 for sale at a Honda dealer with 130,000 miles. the AC didnt work and they had their mechanic look at it and he said all it needed was to lube the AC compressor clutch. Now it blows ice cold. Is this a realistic repair? -to lube the compressor clutch??

Mechanic for Honda: Cary York,
 replied 1 year ago

Never heard of lubing an A/C clutch. Sorry for the delay in response. Do you still need some help?

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

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK
