ok.

Ask Your Own Honda Question

going to be 3 different problems. but for p0420 don't go run and buy a new catalytic converter. you need to see what the oxygen sensors are doing first. especially the downstream

What would you recommend getting fixed first? My funds are a little tight right now.

The IRMC P1078 would be my biggest concern

Ask Your Own Honda Question

code p1298 is an easy fix and the part is cheap on line

Ask Your Own Honda Question

P1078

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!!!!
