  1. The night before taking the FR-V for the MOT, I decided to check everything over as I haven't had much opportunity lately, and I found that a sidelight was out in the front O/S headlight. I was going to tweak the rear parking brake adjustment as I had new brake pads put in recently and they've bedded in - that's not going to happen now as I haven't got time, so hopefully it's all OK for the MOT - I'll find out in about 11 hours. Anyway, it's only a sidelight, so 5 to 10 minute job??? Not a chance - unless you've got really bendy wrists, very small hands, and long fingers that grip like a

  4. I think that speed enforcement cameras can be distracting. Drivers tend to concentrate more on the speedo than they do on the road ahead as they don't want to get caught speeding. Driving abroad where there aren't so many cameras is far more relaxing - and I still don't go blasting around the place just because there are no cameras. I drive to the road and the conditions I'd be much happier if motorway speed limits were increased though, and less of those not-so-smart motorway camera zones. I've been in the control centres for those, and it's all very interesting, but so frustrating when

  5. I really liked my old X reg Honda Prelude. Absolute dream of a car to drive, and did everything I wanted it to do right up until the time the valves dropped I also like my Honda Civic Sport - nippy little thing One of my friends in Bulgaria has a Honda Accord that's been very highly tuned and has so many engine mods it's unbelievable. I took that out for a drive in Sofia one night, and that really did shift. Wow - the power of that beast!!! He uses it for racing, and it sticks to the road as if it's on rails - the power was so smooth too

  6. I'm a contractor, and my contract was cancelled for two months last year during the first lockdown. So no travelling between Donny and Leicestershire to the office 👍 When I got re-engaged last July, all the offices remained closed, and I've been working from home for just under a year now. End result = no driving. I hate driving anyway! As far as music is concerned, I do like listening to music when I'm at home alone or in the garage or the garden, and it shakes the house - all my neighbours probably love me 😳 But as far as the car goes - I very rarely listen to music in the car.

  11. 0w30 is recommended but I put 5w30 in my CR-V. The oil weight is not so important but the ACEA spec which should be A5/B5 https://www.halfords.com/motoring/engine-oils-and-fluids/engine-oil/petronas-syntium-3000-fr-5w-30-oil-5l-256500.html

  13. Hi - you shouldn't need power to release the brakes. As it's an automatic and the battery is flat, the gearbox will likely be stuck in Park. The procedure for releasing it is - New: Emergency Park Release - 9AT When the engine cannot be started due to a dead battery, transmission failure or engine trouble, the 9AT transmission will be locked in park (P) and the vehicle cannot be moved. In the case of a dead battery, recharging the battery and restarting the engine will allow the gear position to be changed. When you need to move the vehicle immediately in an emergency or when

  14. You bought an Ep2, my first car was the same, to be honest you would rather just buy an ep3 as it's cheaper than engine swapping and then adding all the bits for the ep2 to be able to handle the power. Plus ep3s have started to go up in value and will only continue to do so

  18. use Honda CVT oil for the gearbox, and 0w20 oil for the engine which is Honda's latest recommeneded grade. I persoally use Exol Honda spec 0w20 which is great value. As for spark plugs, perhaps try cross referencing the original part numbers with Denso. I find their IK and IKxxTT range of iridium plugs to be great and much cheaper than NGK equivalents and have been using them as long as I can remember. I use IK20TT plugs for my K20 FRV and K24 Accord. An online dealer like Cox Motor parts would have everything you need in terms of original Honda items and would also provide the req

  23. Thanks for that, I guess, I will do the smaller of the services, rather than the full service, but change the oil in anycase. So I will get a basic service pack and a oil change pack. I will check with the garage to see if anything else needs doing when they carry out the service. MOT was in Jan and apart from the brake pads need doing, nothing else was mentioned then, when it passed the MOT. Great stuff
