  1. Replacing Ridgeline after 8 years with '14 Durango

    Miscellaneous/General Honda Ridgeline Discussions
    Haven't posted in years but a small few may remember me. Got my Ridgeline the first day they hit the lots in '05. Had a great 8 years with it and never any trouble after some minor issues in the first few months. I'll miss 'er for sure but after seeing the 2014 Dodge Durango it's time to move...

    Gracias. My next project isn't leading edge but I'm going to black chrome all the grill parts. Found some nifty black chrome spray paint. It's fun to be back mod'n the truck again. Thought I was going to sell her for a diesel Pilot and stopped all projects for the past couple years but now that...
  5. Added diamond plate to the brush guard

    1G Mods, Installs and How-To's
    I bought a sheet of black chrome diamond plate .045" thick from cutsmetal: It was a bear to bend and shape and ultimately I'm going to do it over. Two problems are I couldn't bend it perfectly to shape so I'm not happy it doesn't perfectly conform on the edges. The...

    Yup, I'm back. Took a little sabbatical. Once I was done mod'n the Ridge I kinda got bored and moved on to other hobbies. My eyes also started wandering to other cars I wanted to buy. With the whole gas thing I'm now in a holding pattern for a year or so waiting to see what diesels and plugins...
  7. Honda gave me 2 VIP tickets to the Indy race

    Miscellaneous/General Honda Ridgeline Discussions
    I got a nice surprise in the mail. Honda gave me two tickets to the Indy Grand Prix race at Sears Point (Infineon) Aug. 24th. They come with access to the Honda hospitality tent at turn 2 (Earnhardt terrace) and complimentary parking. Guess I got picked randomly for this, all I've done is buy...
  8. Ody engine fixed, finally sounds like my Ridge

    1G Under The Hood / Performance
    In my '05 Ody I've had a bad engine clatter sound almost from day one which used to happen only when it was cold and cold outside but over the years it kept getting worse where now it happens all the time. Took it to one dealer about 6 months ago and they said it sounded normal to them, ha...
  9. Here's a new one

    Miscellaneous/General Honda Ridgeline Discussions
    You're not the only one. I have a little bit of copper wire stuck down there in the duct. Being only iron, nickel, cobalt & a few rare earth metals are magnetic I'm kinda screwed to retrieve it. Luckily it doesn't make noise sliding around so I'm happy to give it as a sacrifice to the HVAC gods...
  10. defeat TPMS

    1G Mods, Installs and How-To's
    Kodiak is correct. Each time you turn off the truck the system is reset. When starting, signals are sent/pinged to each wheel to wake up the transducers and establish an ID. It's a crap shoot if a spare with TPMS will ping back first/strongest signal and get ID'd. Depends on the distance from...

  12. increased fuel mileage

    Fuel Economy and Gas Related Discussion
    The biggest problem using hydrogen in an internal combustion engine is hydrogen embrittlement which they don't seem to mention the issue at all. It will certainly shorten the life of the engine. Metals can be designed to reduce hydrogen embrittlement but I would never run such a process in an...
  13. Noise behind glove compartment at high RPM

    1G Problems & Issues
    Same here, at least a couple of times. Think it's from the HVAC system. Didn't happen at first and hasn't happened in awhile, but I certainly have heard a sucking, whooshing noise when nearing red line right from the glove box area. Best guess is there was air in the coolant system although that...

    Brrrr, looks cold. Just to rub it in, I just got back from water skiing today :p
  15. Has the RL saved your butt?

    1G Under The Hood / Performance
    Doing 70mph I had to slam on the brakes at full force and dive for the shoulder missing a guy by inches that pulled right into my carpool lane from a dead stop. Handled like a champ, things would have been messy if I was in my old Expedition, probably would have rolled.
  16. Dumbest thing you've done....

    1G Mobile Electronics
    In high school my girl friend drove up in her new truck so I popped the hood to take a look while it was running. With the hood only resting on my head, I got the bright idea to pull the main coil out of the distributor to kill her engine and make her freak out. Didn't work out as planned. I...
  17. whats with the fightingchance method!

    Shoppin' and Test Drivin'
    I bought his product and his book, both well worth it. His method does indeed work but also requires a fair amount of work. In his book he recommends another method/service for those who don't have the time. For about $190 this non-profit organization will do all the work for you, I"m going to...
  18. Injector cleaner

    1G Under The Hood / Performance
    I'm familiar with that range of toyota engines reading toyota forums. Seems they certainly had a design flaw but no one with full synthetics or early OCIs with dino oil got the sludge problem from what I read. I'd recommend changing to a syn like Mobil1, Pennzoil Platinum, or others. I don't...

    It's like a blood panel work up. Most common it can tell if you have any leaks big or minute in the cooling, fuel & air systems or excessive wear and what from. You can also tell just how long you can run your oil, much more accurate than Hondas oil life monitor can. Terry Dysan is an expert at...
