    Honda 'approved' fluids

    I didn't like that answer so I did some more research. (Bearing in mind my Legend is 20 years old and I'm not made of money). Mannol claim that their 'MANNOL O.E.M. 8218 Multivehicle JWS' product 'Corresponds with requirements / specifications / products' including "HONDA ATF-Z1 (not for CVT) / ATF DW-1". It also suits a lot of other Japanese specs too according to the list. https://mannol.de/en/?action=accessory_chemical_preview&name=O.E.M. 8218 Multivehicle JWS Which is good enough for me, especially at £20 for 4 litres (eBay). I did use Mannol stuff before on a Volvo I had that was fussy about power steering fluid, no issues and it's reasonably priced.

    probably the case but easy to simulate by disconnecting and applying a load to the boot to see if the headlamps shift down

    Honda 'approved' fluids

    I think I would stick to the genuine Honda oil if poss.....bought some for my CRV diff on eBay and loads cheaper than dealership

    Going to have to bite the bullet and buy one ! The car is old but runs like a dream and never let's me down. It's been converted to lpg and does 150 miles off £10 of gas.
  7. OK I'll changing the ATF and PAS fluid in my (20 year old) Legend soon. Workshop manual states 'Honda ATF Z1' which I think is now out of date. Was thinking I'd use a synthetic alternative to Honda fluid simply because it's cheaper. Does anyone have any recommendations?

    Thanks Trevor I'll give it a go. Pretty sure there isn't one on the other side. Given that the car has HID/Xenon lights, I'm thinking this is to adjust headlamps as you say - particularly with load in the boot. Interesting that it's not mentioned in my workshop manual though - maybe USA cars didn't get that feature?
  9. That’s the plan. I have just bought one of the oil extractor pumps which should be fine for interim changes and the oil filter is the old cartridge screw in type which is easy to change. The location of it is great too as I can actually just put the front wheels on full lock and can access it without jacking the car up. That makes it easy for me to do my own oil changes every 6000 miles - at least then I know it’s been done. Car is great otherwise apart from a few annoying internal rattles which I have not managed to locate as yet.

    tailgate issue

    Hi....welcome to the Forum I would definitely go back to the dealership and get them to change it under warranty as this shouldn't happen on a car this new. It's a common fault on some Nissans but wasn't aware of it on Honda's though

    Crikey, that's a lot of money for a sensor but I suppose if it works then so be it
  12. I would therefore change it more frequently just in case it has had been missed over time

    Hello from Warwickshire

    Hi....welcome to the Forum There are two reasons for height sensors: 1. to give a reading to feedback to hydraulic/pneumatic dynamic suspension where the dampers or air bags will adjust according to ride heights. 2. to give a reading to feedback to the Xenon headlights to ensure other road users don't suffer glare from the headlamp. If you disconnect it and see if one of your headlamps doesn't adjust on one side. Let us know what you find. Cheers, Trevor
  14. Greetings all, new Legend owner from Warwickshire. Well, the car isn't new, but it's new to me. 2000 model. Anyway I've been poking about and I found a ride height sensor on the OSR shock absorber (see pic). There is a position sensor pot behind the bracket which you can't see in this pic, plus an electrical connector. Does anyone know what this is for? I can't find it in the [Acura RL] workshop manual I have.

    Cheers pal. Since the post I have spoken to a Honda Specialist who says that the abs sensors are FRV specific ones and no body stocks them. Phoned up Honda £160.16p for the sensor. At least Dick Turpin wore a mask !

    I would imagine a sensor from an Accord should work, just find the one that has the longest lead length and see if it compares to yours. I bought one from ebay for a 2005 Accord and is was around £15
  18. Surely being only two years old the car should have some sort of warranty? I would persist in hassling the dealer if it is affecting drivability and / or safety

    tailgate issue

    I have recently bought a 2017 Jazz despite Honda reputation for build quality whilst my wife whilst closied the tailgate the plastic facia with the Honda logo on it split. has anyone else had this problem.? Also can anyone advise what is covered in the standard new car 3 year warranty and do I need to go to a Honda dealer or back to where I bought my car from many thanks in advance
  21. I have a 2017 HONDA HR-V BLACK EDITION I-DTEC 120 (1.6cc) & have ongoing issues with the idle stop and wondering if this is a common problem? Over the past 2 years it’s been in the Garage at least 6 times for the same issue or issues relating to the idle stop and is booked back into garage agin tomorrow. The idle stop works for so long (anything from a few days to max 6 months) and then randomly stops working with a dash warning showing low battery charge. It was last in the garage 2 weeks ago when they again charged the battery overnight, fault again seemed to be rectified but 10 days & 300 miles later the same issue. On some occasions the fault appears to rectify itself within a few weeks. The garage have previously replaced 2 fuses and another part after a discussion with Honda’s master technician, however recently all the garage has done is charge the battery overnight. Has anyone else had a similar problem and know how it was rectified

    Honda FRV

    Hi there. I own a Honda Frv 54 plate. My nearside rear abs sensor is faulty and I can't for the love of god find anybody that sells a replacement ! Are there any other Honda vehicles that share the same abs sensor ? Please help as I'm beginning to lose my mind.
  28. Hi all I hope somebody can assist. Mr vehicle had a fire and went for a repair in a city 600km from my home. I have been ripped off and am now considering my options to diy the reassembly. I will be replacing the engine but since I will be starting with a stripped down vehicle I would greatly appreciate a step by step guide for installing and refitting. Thank you in advance.
