  1. Transmission issue

    1G Problems & Issues
    Please keep us updated. There are always "discussions" going on here about whether or not any fluid but OEM DW1 should be used in the Honda AT5/AT6 transmission. I don't know how long you have had the Maxlife in but do let us know what ends up being wrong with the transmission.
  2. Anyone switch from an Outback to a Ridgeline?

    Miscellaneous/General Honda Ridgeline Discussions
    I think the trip computer has been shown to be around 8% off. That's more like 2mpg optimistic for highway mileage. My GenI's mpg really suffers once I exceed 65 mph. I do think the GenIIs areodynamics on the front are vastly superior to the GenI and agree that the gearing for the V6 is...
  3. Anyone switch from an Outback to a Ridgeline?

    Miscellaneous/General Honda Ridgeline Discussions
    I don't know if the Subaru's computer exaggerates and if so how much. According to the Fuelly the Gen II Ridgeline averages around 20.5 mpg while the 14 Outback averages around 24.5 so thats a 4mpg difference in favor of the outback. Was your Subaru a V6? I don't know Outbacks but that Fuelly...
  4. Help please with Choosing tires Ridgeline 2013

    1G Tires, Wheels and Suspensions
    Sorry but I don't get what buying larger diameter rims has to do with filling your wheel wells? You can an almost certainly find more appropriate tires with taller than stock side profiles to fit the stock 18" wheels than you can find truck tires in the 20" size. Heck you would probably have...

    Miscellaneous/General Honda Ridgeline Discussions
    Just FYI, you shouldn't trust your trip computers MPG numbers. It exaggerates significantly.
  6. 2007 Ridgleline

    First Generation Ridgeline (1G 2006-2014)
    OEM TPMS sensors from an on line supplier like Bernardiparts is a good bet. The aftermarket sensors won't be much cheaper unless you go with the iffy Chinese ones. For the struts, get complete units. The KYB complete units are probably your best bet. You might just consider doing all four...

    There wasn't.
  8. 2007 Ridgeline Transmission leak

    1G Problems & Issues
    Worse case you are going to need a new transmission. Best case you will get away with multiple dump and fills of the transmission fluid. . . Its almost certainly worth it to try and flush out the contaminated fluid by doing multiple (at least 4) dump and fills. You will of course need a new...
  9. How do I make the Ridgeline look less like a minivan?? Share some insights and images

    Miscellaneous/General Honda Ridgeline Discussions
    Looks good! But I think I would prefer it not lowered. I really like those TSWs. How is the tire selection in 20" size?
  10. 3G Criteria

    Miscellaneous/General Honda Ridgeline Discussions
    Good thoughts. I too have found the reviews of the Ridgeline somewhat amusing in that everyone talks about how great it drives and rides while the Pilot gets much less love. I can proomise you that the Pilot handles and rides as well if not better than the Ridge. You are right that the bar is...
  11. New owner of 2007 RTL: anything to know, any must-dos?

    1G Problems & Issues
    McChizzles top pic is of an OEM radiator and his bottom pic is of an AFTERMARKET Denso radiator that will not be found at a Honda dealer. . . To the best of my knowledge, Honda has NOT changed the fittings on the OEM Denso made radiators. The "Denso" radiator that has the SMOD proof fitting...
  12. Continental Terrain Contact HT

    2G Tires, Wheels & Suspension
    One pound of weight gain won't make a noticeable difference in MPG in vehicle the size of the Ridgeline. If the rolling resistance is notably higher or lower then that can have a distinct effect.
  13. Rear Speaker Installation

    2G Audio, Bluetooth, Electronics & Navigation
    I would put most of your budget into the front speakers but certainly not ignore or eliminate the rear speakers. Stock rears should be OK but you might just be better off getting a modest set of coaxials for the rear and a nice set of components for the front.
  14. Maintenance Reference

    2G Accessories, Performance Parts & Modifications
    You should never tighten with a wrench as this can easily distort the filter and its seal. Official filter tightening specs are are typically based on tightening till first point of contact and then turning an additional specified amount. In reality most people just hand tighten as much as...
  15. Timing Belt Replacement

    1G Under The Hood / Performance
    Dealer will almost certainly say change it and they will make a tidy sum of $ when they do. The Maintenance Minder on the GenI does not take into account time so you will not get a timing belt code until the oil change interval closest to 105k miles. Honda does not have an official spec for...
  16. New AT tire help

    1G Tires, Wheels and Suspensions
    Oem Michelins are around 3llbs each. KO2s aren't available in the stock size but in the popular upsizes you will be looking at between 44 and 51lbs each. Thats a major gain in unsprung weight. The Terrain Contact's and the Destination AT2s in the stock size are low 30s.

    Perhaps the new Firestone Destination A/T2?

  19. New owner of 2007 RTL: anything to know, any must-dos?

    1G Problems & Issues
    Douglas685, I would get NGK plugs rather than Denso. I wouldn't replace the coil packs unless they are causing trouble. They typically either work or they don't. Getting a baseline of all fluids on a used vehicle with questionable service history is a great idea. Honda has their own...
