Assalam Alekum fellows,
since i came back i noticed some thing different in my ride as the ride pick was getting sluggish, and going through some self problem.
so going to disscuss both problems here with sequence
1) ride pick became sluggish and felt the jerk specially when shifting from neutral to reverse, my ride has done 30k till now and it got completely maintained by honda it self which by the way can only give u some piece of mind. on 30k check i told them that ride is getting jerk after running for abt 40km or so, so they asked me to come early in the morning so that they can check so i took it there and they check and told me its ok nothing wrong with the ride blah blah. so i took it home again it did the same thing next day so i decided to check internet for the such kind of trouble.
there on one site i really found interesting thing abt the changing of auto transmission oil for such kind of problem. so i decided to give it a try. yesterday i took the car in the afternoon to honda and asked them to change the auto transmission oil, so they checked my meter and told me that sir its only 30k and honda recommend to change it on 40k, so i told them do hell with what honda recommend and u change it now as i am paying u the money so after the little chit chat and blah blah they agree to change it with Honda CVTF, costed me around 3310 ruppes for 4 litres of it including tax and labour charges and the best part of it all of the trouble with the jerks just vanished after the change:D. my ride has again started to perform just like brand new and i am again enjoying the acceleration .
so fellows dont wait for 40k to change the transmission oil get it changed before or when the meter shows 30k. also read the same thing on the internet.
now problem # 2.
car some times started to miss the self completely when the gear lever is on parking mode also taking long self to start the car which seems to strange to me as also replaced the battery with 48amp of maintenance free battery. no sound of the self nothing can be heard when i turn the key to start the car.
few days back i got new tracker installed in the car along with the new immobilizer so i thought that some thing might have gone wrong with this stuff, so i called the tracker company told them regarding this problem so they immediately send me the mobile unit to have a look in the car, they came and checked every thing and told me its all ok by their side. so again called honda regarding this problem and again i was told to come in the morning. btw after 15 tries on the self car started so i went to honda again and the car started very normally next day they checked the car hooked it upto the computer and no error found. fortunately for me i got a very reliable technician who also by the way works for honda ( not going to disclose his name and position of his work here) he came to see me and i told him abt this problem he started the car few time and told me that one of the sensor putting the picture here is not working properly specially when we start the car at parking mode so i asked him why not this error shows on the computer, his answer was not all errors are detected by the computer .
so i asked him regarding this sensor what should be done he said replaced it and he will give me the part number so that i can asked the honda to get me this part, got the sensor number and asked honda to get me this part , received the part yesterday cost me 2700 rupees for this sensor, honda was asking 1200 rupees to fit this part. my friend told me its upto u as he can do it at my place including programing it with the ECU. so yesterday evening he came by with is tolls and stuff took out the old sensor placed the new one programed it and fit it . programing was real easy job. took the ride for the test drive checked every thing and result was superb. car starting on half self with no problems:D.all process took less than 30 minutes. i give him 500 rupees which he took with smile. and told me with any city civic problem of any sort except mechanical he will be glad to take care of it with perfect job and way less than what honda is going to charge u.
so friends this is what i was doing yesterday.
with 100% result i am happy that money spend on the ride worth spending on it.
fellow if yr ride have some same symptoms or any thing unusual symptoms regarding electrical stuff do let me know, my friend technician will be much glad to come and see yr ride and fix it at yr place with complete satisfaction. pls dont ask me his name or number as he strictly said to me not to give to any one. i will be his contact for u.
take care fellows and kind regards
