Cliff notes: very babied SE 2016 2WD with 30k miles - vibration in drive at a traffic light, sluggish acceleration - fluid looked and smelled bad and had LOTS of metal shavings in it. After only 1 drain/refill vibration is gone and acceleration improved.

I was doing one of my first DIY oil changes, and when i removed the splash shield I found mysterious loose part resting on top of it: a plastic disc with a tube through the center that apparently dropped from somewhere up in the engine bay. How long it's been there, where it came from...
Since I have a High Mileage Car I decided to use High Mileage Oil.
I'm gonna use Castrol because it has a low phosphorous content
and that will help protect the emission system.
I do not want my Catalytic Converter to go bad.
Better to do this than risk a failed CC.
So this is kind of a twofer. We just took my fiance's car in to a local Honda dealership to have them do the airbag recall and change the oil while they're at it since i don't have time to do it right now. I was planning to try running some Engine Restore in her car, as its starting to consume...

7 to caution about the dangers of changing oil.
I got these thin rubber liners to protect the spots in my 2017 that are hard to clean like cup holders, change holder, and the door handle space. The liner can be pulled out easily to clean spills, crumbs, dog fur, what ever.
This site won't let me post an Amazon link so here is the exact...

I am sure this was asked more than a few times, but I am relatively new here and could not seem to have the search bar work to well for me. Nothing comes up with keywords I put in. Ended up going back and forth from googling threads on google.com...
Anyway, the maintenance minder B16...
I'm new in this forum and this is my first post. I'm from Toronto.
Last week I owned a 2015 CR-V SE and it's current mileage is 57,700km. The suv was driven 70% city and 30% highway in GTA.
I'm wondering when should I change the Transmission fluid? Should I wait for the...
