Fitted new ecu from TPW with the ecutek Bluetooth adapter it’s fricken awesome !
How goes the car on 0w-20?8th Gen oil and filter using Mobil 1 0w-20 and genuine honda branded filter. I have two big wood offcuts off a joist timber that i drive the car onto which raises it enough for easy access.
For me it might have been the gloopy rubbish in my car. I think the 5w-30 was a cheaper oil judging by how it sludged out the car... The 0w-30 went in like water in comparison. Dunno whether to go up to 5w-30 next time or down to 0w-20...interesting - I recently went from 0w20 to 5w30 in my 9th gen & the 5w30 seems quieter to both me and Mrs Hicks lol - maybe it is all in the mind 🤣
Any ideas if the 1.8 engine ok to flush? Hear horror stories of engine flushes loosening too much and ending up compromising an engine. Would assume a modern Honda engine wouldn't suffer that fate however and those stories are a thing of the past.Never used any tbh, but if I did Id use Liqui Moly tbh.
Of all the cars I've had only a Fiat Uno has had what I would describe as engine failure. It just seemed to lose compression and died a weird death by loss of compression. Wasn't even high mileage but that's 80s design and tech for you.Yea but all anyone has heard is horror stories, they heard it from a mate whos sisters boyfriends best mates uncle had an engine seize because of it. They dissolve the crud, if your engine is slugged that bad that chucks could fall off and compromise the engine, that's likely to happen anyway. Regular oil changes are the best way to prevent it, but you have to accept that that may not have happened before you purchased the car. A mate of mine never services any of his cars, owns them 3 years hands them back, everytime.
You think that is bad - here is mine (self servicing now that service plan is over) - I serviced it last week -
Changed my cabin filter after pulling out for a nosy on how it was doing. Need to look up when this was supposed to have been swapped on a service. She’s had three services so I’m gonna guess every two years.
