  1. New vehicle break-in?

    Second Generation Ridgeline (2G 2017+)
    I didn't read it that way. In fact, I could see his point. But the potential for the uninformed owner to misunderstand and mis-use the MM system and consequentially miss some service call outs seems much more possible due to the limitations of the MM as Honda implemented it. Ergo my suggestion...
  2. New vehicle break-in?

    Second Generation Ridgeline (2G 2017+)
    There were some old copies of maintenance schedules that were floating around. They tend to be more conservative than the MM, so your mileage may vary and all that. But my numbers above come from a combination of those old schedules and my observations of my own MM readings between 2 Hondas with...
  3. Gen1 vs Gen2 trans temp management

    Racks, Hitches & Towing
    I could have sworn I read above that even the lowly G1 Ridge had that inline filter? Does my reading comprehension suck that bad? ;) The G1 trans filter is internal. The change procedure is as follows: Not really sure you want to change it....
  4. 1G: 2Buy, or not 2Buy, Here I go Again

    Shoppin' and Test Drivin'
    @2dogs1cat You're being a patient shopper. I think your patience will be rewarded.
  5. Ignition Coil + Spark Plug Exploded, Threads damaged...What do I do now?

    1G Problems & Issues
    Good question. Maybe a real mechanic can answer. I have no idea.
  6. New vehicle break-in?

    Second Generation Ridgeline (2G 2017+)
    While I don't disagree with you in that regard, the MM in it's present implementation is far from ideal and potentially leads to maintenance issues experienced by the unwashed masses. And given that the 0w-20 weight oils are synthetic (I believe that's been pretty much established), I doubt...
  7. Ignition Coil + Spark Plug Exploded, Threads damaged...What do I do now?

    1G Problems & Issues
    185k miles is middling half life or less of that engine. I'd have to show that to the dealership that did the work... assuming they're local to you. It should be relative easy to get that cylinder inspected with a borescope and get a reasonable idea if any cylinder damage was done. Add in a...
  8. New vehicle break-in?

    Second Generation Ridgeline (2G 2017+)
    I'd never want to let a guest like that in my house or use my vehicles. My OCD will not allow that sort of thing to happen. It's a matter of honor to pass along a vehicle is excellent shape unless it's a known entity. I may trade a vehicle before having major service work done, but that's up...
  9. New vehicle break-in?

    Second Generation Ridgeline (2G 2017+)
    Since I'm a DIYer, I do my own tire rotations. Coincidentally, I only rotate the tires when I do an oil change... about ever 6000-7000 miles in my normal driving. That's pretty common for my vehicles to reach 0% on the MM. All this angst could be better dealt with by using a schedule IMO...
  10. SC/TC issues

    Second Generation Ridgeline (2G 2017+)
    I see they keep the sidewalks plowed for the important places!
  11. SC/TC issues

    Second Generation Ridgeline (2G 2017+)
    But not 2008 and before. What year did they introduce the 18s?
  12. New to me 07 VTM-4 button doesn't light up.

    1G Problems & Issues
    Sorry. Been away for a day or so. See if this helps... and, do you have a factory service manual?
  13. Gen1 vs Gen2 trans temp management

    Racks, Hitches & Towing
    TIL. Never had any idea the G1 had an external trans fluid filter.
  14. New to me 07 VTM-4 button doesn't light up.

    1G Problems & Issues
    So the VTM-4 indicator light on the gauge cluster tests normally, then turns off as expected. But the VTM-4 lock button won't light when you press it when the transmission is in R, D1 or D2? Is that accurate? VTM-4 indicator VTM-4 lock troubleshooting
  15. Fuel Injector Replacement

    2G Problems, Fixes & TSB's
    Gotcha. Thanks.
  16. New Transmission Needed

    2G Problems, Fixes & TSB's
    Having a whining tranny replaced. Sounds like my 2008. I had a whining tranny from new and Honda replaced it before I ran out of the 5/60 powertrain warranty. No issues in the 60k miles since. Or maybe my hearing has deteriorated and I just don't hear it now. ;)
  17. SC/TC issues

    Second Generation Ridgeline (2G 2017+)
    Ah yes. Some of the later G1 Ridgelines came with 18s, didn't they. I didn't think about that.
  18. New vehicle break-in?

    Second Generation Ridgeline (2G 2017+)
    Sounds like this could be an issue for those who drive so little they just do annual oil changes (per the OM). I'm not aware of any instructions to NOT reset the MM when doing annual oil changes. Interesting...
  19. Fuel Injector Replacement

    2G Problems, Fixes & TSB's
    @14v6 Lol. I assume you meant Honda claimed ignorance until CR got involved. Regardless, I haven't heard about the CRV oil issue. What's up with that?
  20. SC/TC issues

    Second Generation Ridgeline (2G 2017+)
    Hmm. I'm remembering that the Michelin LTX MS/2 tires did not come in the OEM size for the G1 Ridge. If my memory is correct, which it may not be.
