Not a problem, it just means the engine management system is modifying the timing. You jumper the connector to tell it not to change the timing while you're checking.

no vacuum and really hot when just the ignition on. quite weird, replace? or clean? or is that normal?
Sorry, I can't tell what that part is.

Paper back, hard cover or E-book? Be sure the cable is attached to the shoe, the shoes are adjusted correctly. Then check the cable adjustment.

Had a spring on backwards so the adjustment part was locked up.e brake works again the other line for the ebrake is out tho.what's the name of the vacuum part in the pic tho? I found the part name for the filter but not the part it attatches to.it gets super hot just from the key being turned to ignition not even running.hoping replacing that might fix it. Remove the egr valve connector and no cell or change in engine running.

Other than that new transmission and clutching is blowing my mind away with how much smoother it runs.its just around 40mpg right now. if i drive it very carefully

i'm still pretty new to the vx but am really happy with ours too. after 6 fill ups, my wife is averaging 43 mpg. 47 mpg has been her best, and she is the furthest thing from a hypermiler. sure beats the 18-20 mpg she was getting with her 4x4 toyota pickup for all those years.

Got the part of a d16z6 from a 95 del Sol for 12 bucks from a yard.only thing different is the sensor attatcment and the vacuum to the vapor canister are flipped.looks like it should still work tho hopefully

well. brand new transmission is leaking fluid I believe. right around the axle seal. taking it back to the shop that put it in. I believe I still have an extra. had them put 10w-30 oil in it as well he almost put gear oil in it.

when its outa the shop whats best for it since it does only have 6k miles on it. 10w-30 oil regular, synthetic, or the Honda mtf, I seriously keep seeing different responses everywhere. that the older trannies were meant for regular oil and that the newer ones can handle Honda mtf.

still havnt been able to get the screw off of the current purge cut solenoid. im hoping the replacement from the d16z6 will work. if that doesn't do it ill look into replacing the vapor canister.

also the outer axle boot on the passenger side recently split so that will be fun.

Sorry to hear of more difficulties...

I have experienced the same difficulty with mine. Apparently I seated one of the seals too far into the housing. I need to replace hub bearing unit and ball joints on that side anyway, so... one of these weeks, when I have read and watched enough, I'll dive in and fix it all. Until then I keep a close eye on the very slow tranny oil leak.

As for replacement transmission oil... I have seen all the debates too. Honda MTF has wear agents that are considered superior to synth oil. But honestly, I drive this car so gently and at such low rpms, often barely reaching running temps... I have Royal Purple 5w30 going in, which was the original spec for the fifth gen manuals I believe.
