Honda 1.6 i DTEC Diagnostics

FYI, Car Mechanics April issue. Interesting read. Has covered the Honda Civic 1.6 iDTEC. There is an error in the article has confirmed by CM.

The battery in the 1.6 idtec when changed DOES NOT need to be coded to the car. However it does need to be a EFB battery.

Interesting they advise to cut Honda service recommendations in half. Oil at 6250 miles?

They must have shares in Earth Dreams Oil as that stuff costs a fortune.. 6250 is good but I'd say a bit OTT if most of your driving is about the A Roads and motorways,

Honda say Air Filter at 3yr or 37K miles. This one had only done 27K Miles. Honda FSH = Not fit for purpose.
