Also driving an 05 accord. KM's at 120000... getting a transmission (manual) flush next week. Scheduled maintenance I have had done at active green + ross...(i won't be going back to active... they seemed to only focus on the oil change, but said the maintenance was done too...)

How many 4cyl automatic 98 accord tranny failures have you guys seen? Mine just started acting up at 196K with regular tranny fluid replacements at honda!HondaServiceGuy wrote: ↑Mar 18th, 2009 6:07 pmHi all, I am a manager of a service repair shop specializing in Honda and Acura vehicles.

The manufacturer's recommendation is to do the belt about 160000km. Original equipment parts should run $350.00 including a water pump and coolant which is highly recommended when doing the timing belt. Most shops will charge about 6 hours of labour to install. Multiply that by the labour rate of the shop and you've got your total.

Sorry, very difficult to say what your vehicle requires at this mileage without knowing the history of service. Check out this link to view the entire schedule on your vehicle (and others) at Honda's website:

They couldn't get the "maintenance req'd" light to turn off. Jiffy lube also could not deactivate it last time I was there.
Had the mechanic plug it into the scanner... code came back "P0507 Idle Air control system revolution per minute higher than expected"
Any ideas? I've been hesitant to bring it into Honda... the car has been fine, and I really cant afford a $400 bill right now!!
is there anything else you recommend to get the most out of the car?

Many. This is quite a common problem. In fact, Honda extended the warranty on these parts to 7.75 years (weird) and 175000km. Unfortunately, your no longer eligible and too far out for any assistance now.

No, this is a normal characteristic of the vehicle. You can take this to your local Acura store for there opinion. As your vehicle is covered under warranty, there will be no charge for this inspection.psj82139 wrote: ↑Mar 22nd, 2009 2:13 ami have 08 acura tsx, 6 speed manual, it jerks little too much in lower speed lower gear(especially in first gear). I found that the DBW system in K series engine causing the problem, seems every honda/acura car with K series engine with DBW having same problem especially with manual tranny. Is there anyway to fix that?
