Help assure your vehicle's future reliability and performance by paying extra attention to how you drive during the first 600 miles (1,000 kilometers). Our authorized dealers know your vehicle inside and out, and can provide competent, efficient service.
Many after-market repair services, such as the mass-marketers (chain stores), hire non-Honda-trained people to work on your high-technology vehicle.
Some ex-dealership technicians open their own independent shops and specialize in that brand of vehicle. Honda parts and fluids are manufactured to the same high-quality standards as the original components, and we recommend the use of them every time you have maintenance performed. If I choose to have my maintenance services performed by someone other than a Honda dealer, must I keep records? A Honda dealer’s computer system automatically does this for you, as it maintains Vehicle Service History records electronically.
There are two very good reasons why you should maintain your vehicle according to the schedule in your Owner's Manual. Vehicle condition is evaluated at the end of the lease period and you will be charged for abnormal conditions that reduce the value of the vehicle. Typically, this indicator displays for several seconds when you turn the ignition switch ON.
If you have recently refueled your Honda, this light may display to warn you of a loose or missing fuel filler cap. If the indicator continues to display after three driving trips, or if the fuel cap was not loose or missing, there may be a problem in one of the engine's emissions control systems. You should also have the dealer inspect your vehicle if this indicator comes on repeatedly, even if it turns off as you continue driving. Depending on the model year of the vehicle, it is typically between 60,000 and 90,000 miles.
Is it normal for my headlights to dim slightly and then come back to normal while my car is stopped at a light?
This is a normal characteristic and is caused by variations in the electrical system created by the onboard computer.
While the engine is at idle, the computer monitors the electrical usage of the car and then controls the electrical charging system so that it charges just enough to keep up with demand. There are a number of ways to find out if your vehicle is affected by a campaign (recall, product update, or extended warranty). This distortion is called "cross-car distortion." You will notice it when you're watching a vehicle cross in front of your car and also when you're turning left and looking through the right side of the windshield at other vehicles. Some cross-car distortion exists in the windshields of Honda vehicles manufactured since 1994.
For vehicles equipped with the Battery Management System, this message occurs when the battery’s State of Charge has dropped below a predetermined level. If any of these conditions occur, and the battery charge drops below a certain level, the battery management system informs the driver that the battery may not be able to start the vehicle in extreme cases by illuminating the BATTERY CHARGE LOW or BATT LOW warning message. The battery management system is intended to protect the driver from allowing the battery charge to drop to a point where it cannot start the vehicle. The Vehicle Identification Number, commonly referred to as the VIN, is a sequence of 17 letters and numbers that is uniquely assigned for each vehicle. When you register for Honda Owners Site or add a new vehicle to an existing Honda Owners Site account, you have the option of entering your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) or Hull Identification Number (HIN). Quicker registration - our system "decodes" the VIN or HIN to determine your vehicle's year, make model, and color, so you don't have to enter it manually.
Where can I locate my Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) or Hull Identification Number (HIN)? Every automobile, motorcycle, scooter, and ATV has a unique 15-17 character Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) that contains information about that vehicle. On new owner surveys or customer satisfaction surveys sent by American Honda Motor Co., Inc.

In general, Honda recommends that you buy gasoline from high-volume, major name-brand stations. To prevent the build-up of deposits inside your engine and fuel system, it is important to choose fuels that contain effective detergent additives. The exhaust on today's catalyst-equipped Honda vehicles will emit varying degrees of sulfur odor depending on operating temperatures and conditions. It may not be possible to eliminate sulfur odor completely due to the various operating conditions.
Sometimes my Honda seems to idle poorly, hesitate on acceleration or experience hard starting. If winter blended fuel is used in warm or hot weather, the higher temperature may cause the fuel to "percolate" within the fuel system.
These situations are normally localized and last only during a brief period of severe changes in climatic conditions.
Ensure that the gas cap is securely tightened after refueling, as per the instructions in your Owner's Manual. Never fill a portable gasoline container or refuel a gasoline-powered device anywhere inside or on your vehicle.
Refer to your owner's manual to determine the proper weight (viscosity) grade for your Honda. When using synthetic oil, you must follow the oil and filter change intervals given in the maintenance schedule. There is absolutely no benefit in changing your oil more frequently than recommended in your owner's manual. As a Honda owner, the crush washer you should be most concerned with is the one that must be replaced every time you change your motor oil.
When a new washer is installed and the drain plug is tightened, this washer "crushes" to form a very tight seal, thereby preventing motor oil leaks without overstressing the oil pan threads.
This is another example of why your Honda dealer is the easy choice for your service needs. American Honda recommends against the use of any oil additives other than those already blended in the stock oil. American Honda strongly recommends against this process, which is sometimes called "engine flushing." Any engine damage resulting from this procedure will not be covered under warranty.
When installing a new Honda oil filter, make sure you torque the filter to the proper specification.
For most vehicles, Honda does recommend using snow tires or chains in snowy or icy conditions. The PAX Tire System is the latest in "run-flat" tire technology that, in the event of a tire puncture, allows a driver to remain in control of the vehicle and continue driving for up to 125 miles at speeds up to 50 miles an hour on a deflated tire.
Yes, the recommendation for snow chains on vehicles with PAX tires is located in the owner's manual.
While tread life is determined by multiple variables that include speed, load, road surface abrasiveness and crown, driving habits and temperatures, PAX System tires should provide tread life comparable to a corresponding Michelin tire.
Honda does not recommend modifying the vehicle in any manner, including changing the original tire size or the suspension.
92 - This number indicates the tire's load-carrying capacity, known as the Load Index; as the number for the load index increases so does the load-carrying capacity. V - This letter denotes the Speed Rating, the maximum tire speed under controlled test conditions. Occasional noise can be caused by the light application of brakes for a prolonged distance before stopping, or from high relative humidity.
Flushing the system with new fluid removes the condensation before extensive damage can occur. Before buying a car, you should first sit in the intended seating position and adjust the seat to the most comfortable position.
Can the Honda Element Dog Friendly Package be applied to Element LX models or to models prior to 2009 model year? The Element Dog Friendly Package was specifically designed for 2009-2010 Honda Element EX models and is not recommended for other trims or model years. Where can I find out more about Bluetooth HandsFreeLink (phone compatibility, pairing a phone, etc)?
The Anti-theft Navigation Code is an access code that allows the Navigation System to operate. You can retrieve your code using this website by providing identity verification and vehicle information in a few simple steps. Every automobile has a unique Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) that contains information about that vehicle.
The battery was disconnected from my vehicle and now my radio is flashing “code” and the radio doesn’t work. If an audio unit with theft protection is disconnected from electrical power, you must enter a unique code into the unit or it will not work. Because the recall campaigns are safety-related, recall service appointments are given the highest priority.
You can use Service Records as long as you are managing at least one Honda vehicle in the "My Vehicles" section of the Honda Owners Site. From the Service Records page, click the link marked "all records" to get a complete printable version. Basic warranty information for current model year vehicles can be found on the Vehicle Information Warranty page. In fact, the back cover of your Honda Warranty Information booklet contains a "Change of Address or Ownership Notification" form for that purpose. If I have my maintenance services performed by someone other than a Honda dealer, will my warranty be voided?
The tires that come as original equipment on your vehicle are warranted by their manufacturer and not Honda.
For additional warranty information or service assistance, contact the tire manufacturer directly.
Honda vehicles with V-6 engines equipped with Variable Cylinder Management (VCM) are able to deactivate engine cylinders to improve fuel economy.
When driving my 2015 CR-V, I sometimes experience one or more vibrations felt primarily through the driver’s seat.
The 2015 CR-V now includes a Direct-injection Earth Dreams Technology engine and a continuously variable transmission. Many after-market repair services, such as the mass-marketers (chain stores), hire poorly-trained people to work on your high-technology vehicle. Acura parts and fluids are manufactured to the same high-quality standards as the original components, and we recommend the use of them every time you have maintenance performed. If I choose to have my maintenance services performed by someone other than an Acura dealer, must I keep records?
An Acura dealer’s computer system automatically does this for you, as it maintains Vehicle Service History records electronically.
If you have recently refueled your Acura, this light may display to warn you of a loose or missing fuel filler cap.
The Acura models with high-intensity discharge (HID) headlights use a different beam pattern than what’s found on vehicles with conventional headlights. Right Side: Shines higher to provide good illumination of road signs and to illuminate pedestrians.
Some cross-car distortion exists in the windshields of Acura vehicles manufactured since 1994. For model year 2006 and newer, if an Acura vehicle is approved for towing with all four wheels on the ground, it will be noted in the Owner’s Manual for that vehicle. Every automobile has a unique 17-character Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) that contains information about that vehicle. In general, Acura recommends that you buy gasoline from high-volume, major name-brand stations.
To prevent the build up of deposits inside your engine and fuel system, it is important to choose fuels that contain effective detergent additives.
The exhaust on today's catalyst-equipped Acura vehicles will emit varying degrees of sulfur odor depending on operating temperatures and conditions.


To avoid a mismatch of summer and winter fuel, Acura recommends that you buy gasoline from high-volume, major name-brand stations.
There is no advantage in using a fuel with a pump octane greater than that recommended in your Owner's Manual. It is very important to choose an oil displaying the "Starburst" certification symbol, shown at left. Lighter oils flow easier once the cold engine starts, bringing vital lubrication to moving parts. There is absolutely no benefit in changing your oil more frequently than recommended in your Owner's Manual.

When installing a new Acura oil filter, make sure you torque the filter to the proper specification. For most vehicles, Acura does recommend using snow tires or chains in snowy or icy conditions. Acura does not recommend modifying the vehicle in any manner, including changing the original tire size or the suspension. As described in some Owner’s Manuals, the squealing noise is caused by high-frequency vibration of the brake pads against the rotating brake disc. Normally, the shims and the high-temperature grease between the pads and the brake caliper dampen and isolate most of the vibration.
Why do my brakes make a single “click” noise when I back out of a parking place and once again when I drive forward?
A clearance between the brake caliper brackets and the ends of the brake pads allows for heat expansion and avoids corrosion between the caliper bracket and the brake pads. Why does my brake pedal sometimes feel like it sinks when I’m holding my car stopped at a light? On models with a compact Anti-lock Brake System (ABS) unit, the vehicle’s ABS emits a brief grunt or groan when it does a self-check. On new owner surveys or customer satisfaction surveys sent by American Acura Motor Co., Inc.
If an audio unit with theft protection is disconnected from electrical power, you must enter a unique code number into the unit or it will not work.
The online service scheduling system automatically notifies your dealership's service department and places your appointment on its scheduling system. Your dealer will call you with an estimate and ask for your approval before proceeding with the service.
You may also receive an email notifying you that your appointment status is "On Hold" and your dealer may have entered comments for you to review in your appointment detail. Pending: Your dealer will confirm your appointment through Acura Owners Site or call you to confirm.
In Shop: Your vehicle is currently at the dealership being worked on by one of the dealership's technicians. On Hold: Your dealer requires additional information (such as approval of an estimate) before service can continue.
Expired: Your scheduled appointment has expired due to inactivity and can no longer be modified. You can use Service Records as long as you are managing at least one Acura vehicle in the "My Vehicles" section of the Acura Owners Site. Your warranty will not be voided by service done by someone other than an Acura dealer provided the maintenance is performed properly.
Vehicles with titles that have been branded as salvaged, scrapped, or dismantled are no longer covered by the new car warranty, with the exception of some emissions warranties and safety recalls.
The tires that come as original equipment on your vehicle are warranted by their manufacturer and not Acura.
Coverage for a new-vehicle plan begins when the auto is originally put into service and at zero miles. Can I include the cost of an Acura Care service contract in my traditional financing or lease payment?
Some Acura RLX owners have reported hearing “Clunking” or “Rattling” noises from the front or rear of their vehicle when traveling over abrupt changes in road surfaces.
Acura vehicles with V6 engines equipped with Variable Cylinder Management (VCM) are able to deactivate engine cylinders to improve fuel economy. Via email, text message, or notification as you wait on our site.Ask follow up questions if you need to. Tory Johnson, GMA Workplace Contributor, discusses work-from-home jobs, such as JustAnswer in which verified Experts answer people’s questions. I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. In addition to the tire's brand and line names (tire model), there is a lot of information provided by the manufacturer on the sidewalls of the tires they produce.
While not all information is branded on every tire, the illustration includes the typical information found on many tires. Rolling your mouse over any of the descriptions will highlight the appropriate branding on the tire sidewall illustration. I am having Grand i10 and my VIN is stamped under drivers seat, i guess the location is same for Xcent as well.
Pa bildet kan du se hva de forskjellige malene er, samtidig kan du huske pa at ‘offset’ males alltid i millimeter og ‘backspace’ males alltid i tommer. Altsa, med negativ offset (for eksempel ET-52) kommer felgen utover, og med positiv offset (for eksempel ET38) kommer felgen innover mot kjoretoyet. Vi kaller det millimeter dekkdimensjon, selv om bare det forste tallet oppgis i millimeter.
Tallet er lasteindexen og refererer til et antall kilogram, dette finner man i tabeller som for eksempel STRO-boka.
Dette angir hvaslags fore dekket er tiltenkt, MEN du vil finne dette merket pa dekk vi aldri ville funnet pa a bruke vinterstid i Norge! Noen diagonaldekk oppgir hoyde og bredde i motsatt rekkefolge, ogsa da med en bindestrek for angivelse av felgens diameter. It is not authorized or endorsed by the Ford Motor Company and is not affiliated with the Ford Motor Company or its related companies in any way.
It’s just one component of the Maintenance Minder system which calculates when you should have your next service. However, their "factory" training is usually several years old, so their technical knowledge of current model vehicles will not be as good as the local dealer's technicians, who routinely receive new model training from American Honda. The Service Records feature here on Honda Owners site is a handy way to keep track of each service visit.
If your vehicle has a timing chain, instead of a timing belt, replacement of the timing chain is not required. The computer controls the output of the electrical charging system to improve fuel economy and minimize vehicle vibration.
This change reduces the load on the engine and, in turn, increases fuel economy and reduces vehicle vibration. You can either call Automobile Customer Service at 1-800-999-1009 (press the appropriate option for Campaign information) or you can access information on any campaign affecting your vehicle by clicking here.
Front-seat passengers see the same distortion when they look through the left side of the windshield.
In fact, all of these recent Honda windshields have this distortion to some degree, and the condition should be considered normal.
The message is intended to inform you that the battery requires charging to guarantee proper performance under all conditions (extremely cold conditions, high electrical system demands, etc). The affect on the battery is made worse if the radio, lights, heater fan or other accessories are on at the same time. Not only does it require more energy to start the vehicle in the cold, but the battery just doesn’t work as well. While this message does mean the battery charge is low, it usually does not mean that the battery won’t start the engine.
By using it as a guide, not only will the life of the battery be extended, but the chances of the vehicle not starting due to a discharged battery will be greatly reduced. The VIN can usually be found on the driver's side dashboard near or under the bottom portion of the windshield.
The detergency of some US gasolines is insufficient to provide protection from such deposits.
The human sense of smell can detect sulfur odor in concentrations as low as 3 to 5 parts per million in air. On normally operating vehicles, the odor is usually noticeable when the engine is cold, right after deceleration, or after wide-open throttle acceleration.
If the sulfur odor is overly bothersome, please contact Honda Customer Relations or your dealer for further guidance or assistance.
Use of a lower-octane gasoline than recommended can cause a persistent, heavy metallic rapping noise in the engine that can lead to mechanical damage. An improperly tightened gas cap might illuminate the Malfunction Indicator Light on your instrument panel.
When Honda Genuine oil is not available, it is very important to choose an oil displaying the "Starburst" certification symbol, shown left. This oil meets the Starburst performance requirements listed above, but is also subjected to a series of Honda-specific tests to guarantee optimum performance and compatibility with your Honda vehicle.
That is, it must display the Starburst symbol, and match the weight grade recommended in your owner's manual.
Separate maintenance schedules are listed for "normal service" and "severe service." Read the description of severe service carefully.
This will only increase your cost of ownership, and create an unnecessary burden upon the environment by increasing the amount of disposed oil.
Oil eventually deteriorates and loses its ability to protect your engine, due to heat, friction, and exposure to exhaust components.
Such supplemental additives are unnecessary when using quality oils displaying the Starburst certification symbol.
Refer to your owner's manual for information and recommendations for your specific vehicle.
It is recommended that customers contact their local auto parts store to obtain snow chains.
DOT safety standards; the letters and numbers following the DOT symbol provide information about the tire manufacturer, tire size, and the date it was manufactured. When the brake pads need replacing, you will hear a distinctive metallic "screeching" sound when you apply the brakes.
And when that moisture finds its way into your braking system, it can corrode metal and seals.
If this specific fluid is not available, you should use only DOT 3 or DOT 4 fluid from a sealed container, but only as a temporary replacement.
Although some auto manufacturers do offer extenders, Honda believes they are not the best or the safest solution for our customers. If you don't feel comfortable (your legs or stomach are touching the steering wheel, or you cannot reach and operate the controls), then you cannot safely operate the vehicle and should look for a larger car.
To perform a hard reset, hold the home button (below the screen) and the stand-by button (on the top) until the device reboots (ignore the “slide to power off” and wait until the Apple logo appears). If your battery is ever disconnected, the navigation system will be automatically deactivated. If the VIN is not working properly, check to see if letters and numbers have been accidentally inverted. You can also access this link through Honda Owners Site if you have registered a vehicle that has a navigation system.
This code and the audio unit's serial number are listed on the anti-theft ID card that comes with the vehicle.
Click "locate a dealer" to select from a list of participating dealers who offer online service scheduling and visit their site directly to schedule an appointment online. Your dealer will confirm recall appointments through the Honda Owners Site or by the telephone after ensuring that all necessary parts are available. The most complete warranty information can be found in the Warranty booklet supplied with your vehicle.
American Honda warrantees the vehicle regardless of the number of ownership changes it incurs. The only way your warranty may be affected is if it can be shown that misuse or improper (or lack of) maintenance caused or contributed to the malfunction.
These engines are equipped with technology to dampen and decrease the vibration of the engine when cylinders are deactivated. However, their "factory" training is usually several years old, so their technical knowledge of current model vehicles will not be as good as the local dealer's technicians, who routinely receive new model training from American Acura.
The Service Records feature here on Acura Owners Site is a handy way to keep track of each service visit. The top edge of each headlight beam is cut off lower on the left side, and rises toward the right side. You can access information on any campaign affecting your vehicle by clicking here or call Acura Client Relations at (800) 382-2238 (press the appropriate option for Campaign information).
In fact, all of these recent Acura windshields have this distortion to some degree, and the condition should be considered normal.
Please contact Acura Client Relations (800-382-2238) for additional information on whether or not your specific 2005 or older vehicle may be dinghy-towable.
The detergency of some US gasoline is insufficient to provide protection from such deposits.
If the sulfur odor is overly bothersome, please contact Acura Client Relations or your dealer for further guidance or assistance. This symbol indicates that the oil meets the latest performance requirements set by the automotive and oil industries.
This oil meets the Starburst performance requirements listed above, but is also subjected to a series of Acura-specific tests to guarantee optimum performance and compatibility with your Acura vehicle. Refer to your Owner's Manual to determine the proper weight (viscosity) grade for your Acura.


That is, it must display the Starburst symbol, and match the weight grade recommended in your Owner's Manual.
Vibration is the unavoidable result of friction generated by the pads as the caliper clamps them against the rotating disc. The level of vibration, however, is affected by outside temperature and humidity, by road conditions (mud, dust and road salt), and by the condition or thickness of the brake pad material.
That clearance can cause the pads to hit the caliper brackets when you first apply the brakes in a new direction of travel. The “power brakes” system in most modern vehicles uses engine vacuum to boost the amount of force applied to the brake pedal by the driver of the car. Engine vacuum is highest when all accessories are off and the accelerator pedal is released (low load), and lowest when all accessories are turned on and the accelerator pedal is held to the floor (high load).
During normal operation, the air conditioning system constantly cycles on and off, changing the amount of load on the engine.
Although some auto manufacturers do offer extenders, Acura believes they are not the best or the safest solution for our customers. You can also access this link through Acura Owners Site if you have registered a vehicle that has a navigation system. Your Service Advisor will be expecting you - just notify him or her that you have arrived for a scheduled appointment. Click the "Appointment number" to view details, and then click the "Cancel Appointment" button. This step is required for the recall-related service appointments to ensure that the necessary parts are available and in stock. Click "schedule service appointment" to set up a new appointment for a service visit with your dealer. Your dealer will confirm recall appointments through the Acura Owners Site or by the telephone after ensuring that all necessary parts are available. In fact, the back cover of your Acura Warranty Information booklet contains a "Change of Address or Ownership Notification" form for that purpose.
The only way your warranty may be affected by an outside service is if it can be shown that misuse or improper (or lack of) maintenance caused or contributed to the malfunction.
The warranty coverage for parts purchased from and installed by an Acura dealer includes parts replacement and labor. For further information regarding the branding of vehicle titles, please contact your state’s department of motor vehicles. Coverage for a used-vehicle plan begins on the purchase date and at the mileage on the odometer on that date. With our special interest-free payment plan, a monthly payment can be automatically debited from your checking account, MasterCard or Discover Card. You may finance the cost of a service contract if you purchase it at the same time as a new or used automobile.
Coverage is transferable from private party to private party through the life of the vehicle service contract.
The block casting uses extensive support webbing in the mid and lower areas. Clicking on selected descriptions will link you to a page providing additional details (where applicable).
I Europa snakker man som oftest alltid om ‘offset’, dette er veldig ofte ogsa stemplet inni felgen som ET. Bokstaven er hastighetsindexen og referer til et antall kilometer i timen, dette finner man ogsa i tabeller i for eksempel STRO-boka. Dette betyr at stalwirene inni dekket kun gar en vei diagonalt inni dekket (og ikke begge veier mot hverandre slik som i et radialdekk).
Watch the video for a quick explanation of the system and how it can help you keep your vehicle in prime condition.
It will also reward you with more economical, trouble-free driving and help reduce air pollution.
Refer to the Scheduled Maintenance section of the appropriate owner's manual for specific information. As electrical accessories turn on and off, the computer changes the rate of electrical charge in response to the changes in demand for electricity. Since cross-car distortion occurs when you look through the glass at an angle, it may be even more noticeable for short drivers. Because the aerodynamic windshield of recent Hondas is at more of an angle than in the past, the cross-car distortion may be slightly more noticeable, even though the jump distortion is at the same low level as before. If the engine is not run long enough, the charging system cannot recharge the battery to the level it was at before the engine was started. This can be fixed by taking longer trips between shorter trips, minimizing unnecessary electrical accessory usage during short trips, and spending less time using electrical accessories while the engine is not running. It can also be found in various other places on the vehicle, including the certification label found on the driver's doorjamb.
Buying fuel from high-volume, major name-brand stations should resolve most of these problems. It is important to avoid any activity that might result in static electricity build-up and discharge. Confirm that the weight listed on your oil's label matches this recommendation exactly before using it in your engine. Engine oil contains special additives to enhance the oil's performance, and these additives are also broken down or consumed with distance and time. Additives cannot prolong the life of a used oil, because the oil molecules have been broken down.
Use of non-PAX tires will disable the Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) and is not recommended. As with any modification, if a failure occurs on the vehicle that can be attributed to the modification, the warranty on the affected components may be voided. The use of any non-Honda brake fluid can cause corrosion and may decrease the life of the system. If this card is lost, you must obtain the audio unit serial number in order to get the radio code. If the Warranty booklet is no longer with the vehicle, the same information can be found online through the Honda Owners site. If these parts are installed by a Honda dealer, both the parts and labor are covered for 12 months or 12,000 miles, whichever comes first.
While these systems effectively decrease the amount of vibration transmitted to the passenger cabin, you may still notice a light vibration when the engine is running on 3 or 4 cylinders during light cruising.
With these changes, some customers have reported experiencing a vibration that they primarily feel through the vehicle’s driver seat.
For this reason, when the headlights are turned on, the beam pattern can appear uneven from the far left edge to the far right edge, especially when you’re closely following another vehicle or shining the headlights on a nearby wall. Because the aerodynamic windshield of recent Acuras is at more of an angle than in the past, the cross-car distortion may be slightly more noticeable, even though the jump distortion is at the same low level as before.
Oil bearing the Starburst will provide superior performance in the areas of deposit and sludge protection, wear protection, and oil life. If the squealing noise is abnormally loud, have the brakes inspected and checked for pad wear.
When you back up and apply the brakes and then drive forward and apply the brakes, the single “click” noise you hear is a normal characteristic of the brake system. The device that does this, called the brake “booster,” makes it easier for the driver to stop the vehicle.
Any change in engine vacuum (load) can affect the amount of “assist,” or boost, provided by the brake booster. When the air conditioning cycles off, the load on the engine is decreased and the amount of engine vacuum is increased.
The groaning noise associated with the ABS self-check is a normal characteristic; it doesn’t mean there is a problem with the ABS.
If it is within the lead time required by the dealer (24 or 48 hours), we ask that you please also call the dealership by phone to notify them of the change. If the Warranty booklet is no longer with the vehicle, the same information can be found online through the Acura Owners Site. If you or they have questions regarding the applicability of warranty, they will contact the local Acura Zone Office for directions. The main bearing bores are supported by the block sidewalls which extend past the crank centerline more than 2 inches.
I had real doubts about this website but your promptness of response, quick followup and to the point answer with picture was incredible.
This is a discussion on Decoding Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) within The Automotive Library.
I searched few other Hyundai VIN numbers also and it appears to be the case with them as well.
For det siste tallet star ofte bokstaven ‘R’ som ogsa her forteller oss at dette er et radialdekk. Just be sure to keep all receipts as proof of completion, and have the service technician fill out the Maintenance Record.
Tightening the cap will not make the indicator turn off immediately; it may take several driving trips. As the computer responds to the addition of electrical load, you may notice a momentary dimming of the lights. Wearing nonprescription sunglasses, which tend to reduce depth perception, also may increase the perceived distortion.
These windshields meet all applicable Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards for glazing materials, and this minor distortion is allowable within the industry specifications for automotive glass. Running high-demand electrical accessories, such as seat heaters, can make this situation even worse. This identifies where the vehicle was manufactured or assembled and the type of vehicle it is. The 10th digit indicates the model year; letters (except "O" and "Z") were used for vehicles up to the 2000 model year while numbers are used for 2001 and newer vehicles. Gasoline brands with this designation meet new, voluntary standards and have demonstrated their ability to keep engines clean through a series of demanding tests. The use of oil additives will increase your cost of ownership, and can lead to engine damage.
Before you install a new oil filter, remember to inspect and clean the filter's threads and O-ring surfaces.
