  1. Timing Belt

    1G Under The Hood / Performance
    I'll try to find that foam next trip to walmart or home depot :) I'm reasonably sure this is the first time the radiator has been replaced. I'm second owner and it only has 78k on it. I'll probably re-use the OEM hoses for this change :) May replace the clamps though. Glad to hear Gates is...

    Do I only need the (UPPER) one? There is also a lower one listed... I think I'd rather just use a roll of door/window foam sealer. $20 for a foam strip is a bit... well, standard for OEM parts haha. How do you feel about all the "GATES" parts? Pretty good brand? I've also heard about some...

    So with the TB/WP I won't need coolant flush? Just top it off from the leftovers from the rad job is what you're saying? If so I may go ahead and do the rad much sooner, and do the TB/WP next fall. Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk

    Oh for sure I agree. I think everything I need for the rad is under $200 Timing belt is just over $200. Was planning to do them together so I only have to do the coolant once. Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk

    1G Under The Hood / Performance
    I appreciate the reply!!! My current plan is to get under her this weekend, and change all the major fluids. If all looks, and smells good I'll wait till next year to do the TB/WP and radiator. I'm most nervous about the SMOD thing. I'm going to heavily scrutinize my ATF, and if there is...

    Hi everyone! I've been on the forums for a bit, but never made my way over to this section! I live down in Baldwin Co! '06 RTS Green!
  8. Service Manual

    1G Under The Hood / Performance
    Got my hands on a copy of the 2009+ manual thanks to a very kind person here on the forums. Question though; Mine is a 2006. The engine codes are different. Will this manual still be accurate? I'm planning to use it on a Timing Belt & Water Pump swap. Also doing a radiator swap soon. I'm...
  9. Looking for some DIY Info

    First Generation Ridgeline (1G 2006-2014)
    Gotcha, I'll hit advanced auto parts on the way home today for the 80w90. I went by the dealership yesterday to grab the ATF ($8.50/qt) and the VTM4 ($30/gal). Felt expensive to me, but :shrug: OEM is recommended. They got me on the damn crush washers. I wasn't paying attention, and they...

    Yup, found a few very useful threads so far. This one is awesome. I'm hunting a pdf of the service manual currently.

    1G Under The Hood / Performance
    Yeah I wish this one still had it's pictures :( I've found the CSF on RockAuto for ~$80+ Spectra is ~$110+ Denso is ~$130+ OSC is ~$106+ I'm pretty sure I remember seeing a post of yours that showed a radiator with a big CSF box behind it. If that one is working well for you, AND it's the...

    First Generation Ridgeline (1G 2006-2014)
    Excellent, thank you for the info! I did end up going with a fully synthetic 5w20, and a Fram XG7317 also lol! I'm going to go bug my dealer today about the Transmission, Diff, and some other things. While I'm there, I'll see what they do a TB/WP service for. If it's $1000, or under, I'll...

    Yikes, well the radiator thing is just wonderful :\ Ugh. I'll start budgeting for the parts I'll need. Thanks for the heads up on that! What does SMOD stand for? Strawberry Milkshake of Death? haha Also, I've been combing through all your links, I've found most of the parts I think I need...

    Just bought most of what I need for the fluids today! Going to do Oil, Trans, Diff, Transfer, Power Steering, and maybe a coolant flush. What about the radiator? Was there a recall?

    This is perfect! Thank you so much!

    First Generation Ridgeline (1G 2006-2014)
    Hi everyone, I'm looking for some info on some DIY service procedures. I remember with my first ridgeline, I was able to find some basic guides on Oil, Transmission, and Differential fluid changes. The guides had the amount of fluids I would need, and even listed the sizes of the bolts I'd...

    I bought my 2006 about a year and a half ago from a private party. It only has ~78k miles on it. Think it would be fine to wait to 100k?
  18. Service Manual

    1G Under The Hood / Performance
    I'm interested too! I could certainly use the manual for a 2006! Got a lot of service to catch up on :|

    1G Problems & Issues
    Similar situation. Mine is also 2011, with 110k miles. I'm thinking the reason for the poor fuel economy is that my wife drives it city only. Waiting in traffic, and to pick up our kids from school (the dreaded car line). Sitting idle is terrible for MPG : \ That being said, and I'll probably...
