    Tips From Honda Service News

    From The January 09 issue of Honda Service New

    Battery Hold-Down Nuts
    Installing a battery? Take it easy on those hold-down
    nuts. If you overtighten them, youll put too much
    stress on the battery case, which can cause it to
    deform and the inner seals to separate. Leaking
    inner seals can shorten battery life.
    A good rule of thumb to follow is to tighten the nuts
    just enough so the hold-down doesnt budge when
    you try to wiggle it.

    Front Wheel Shimmy New Cars

    Steering Wheel Shimmy,
    Vibration, Tire Noise at PDI
    Currently Applies To: All 09 models
    If a vehicle has been sitting out for a long
    timeespecially in cold weatherits tires can
    develop flat spots. These flat spots can cause
    steering wheel shimmy, vibration, and tire noise
    thats really noticeable during the test drive at PDI.
    These flat spots are just temporary and will usually
    smooth out after about 10 miles of highway driving.
    But if those symptoms are still there after driving that
    distance, there may be other forces at work.
    To find and fix the problem, be sure to check out the
    five-part series Excessive Steering Wheel Shimmy
    or Chassis Vibration in the October 07 thru
    February 08 issues of ServiceNews. Youll find lots
    of good info there to help you.

    There is another article regarding paint protectors holding moisture:

    Got DTC P0341? Measure the Cam Chain Tensioner Rod Length

    Currently Applies To: 0307 Accord L4, 0210
    Civic Si, 0210 CR-V, and 0310 Element
    A damaged or stretched cam chain, resulting from
    infrequent oil changes, can cause the MIL to come
    on with DTC P0341 (CMP sensor A and CKP sensor
    incorrect phase detected). Old oil causes the cam
    chain to wear quickly. As a result, it stretches beyond
    the point where the cam chain auto-tensioner can
    keep up. That extra chain slack causes the valve
    timing control (VTC) actuator and the exhaust
    camshaft sprocket to lag behind, and you wind up
    with DTC P0341.
    With that in mind, weve put together a job aid
    consisting of a flowchart and a special DTC
    troubleshooting procedure. To view job aid DTC
    P0341: CMP Sensor A and CKP Sensor Incorrect
    Phase Detected (0307 Accord L4, 0210 Civic
    Si, 0210 CR-V, 0310 Element) (click here).
    In this procedure, you check for a damaged or
    stretched cam chain by measuring the cam chain
    auto-tensioner rod length. If its more than 13.5 mm,
    youve got a bad cam chain and will need to replace
    it along with the cam chain auto-tensioner
    Keep in mind, a damaged or stretched cam chain
    resulting from infrequent oil changes isnt covered
    by warranty, so be sure to check the vehicles service
    history before you start. It tells the story.

    ATEQ VT55 Replaces TPMS Sensor Tool

    Drivers Seat Lowers by Itself Basically a repeat of the idea that the drivers seat is lowering itself because the driver is brushing the handle. I think that is BS. Mine is constantly going down by itself and I am careful not to brush the handle.

    MIL On With DTC(s) P0171, P0174; Engine Runs Poorly or Stalls

    TPMS DTCs 32, 34, 36, 38, or 41 on a Recently Sold Vehicle
