Before I purchased, I also read the reviews and even the instruction manuals for the various products. I wish I could say I picked the best bang for the buck, but they all seemed to do the same...

I added a VCMuzzler as a preventive measure so that I would not (hopefully ever) have to deal with these problems. I just considered it cheap insurance for my car.

If the vibration is coming from the engine during ECO mode, then this might help. When the engine goes from 6 cylinders, to 4 and then to 3, some people experience a vibration. The VCMuzzler keeps...

From the pictures I could not tell much difference. Why three plugs looked a little different? My first impression would be that the discoloration happened prior to installing the VCMuzzler. The real...

I would say excellent! I would also say your VCMuzzler is working great (I also have one). I would also say your engine appears healthy and has a long life ahead of it. Good job!

From my experience, they follow a flow chart. First thing is to identify the problem. Then they start with software upgrade and then plugs. If this doesn't solve the problem then they keep going down...

Rubber deteriorates from wear or just old age. I would recommend that you consider having it done in the next 20,000 KM or 10,000 miles. According to the owners manual on page 343, it states:...

The fuel system is very susceptible to fuel additives which is why Honda does not recommend ANY fuel or oil additive. Anyway, I would say your mechanic is right on the money. The Delphi fuel pump...

I have not heard of any problems with aftermarket fuel pumps. For that matter, it's pretty rare for the original Honda pump to fail. Let me ask you a few questions:

Yes, I agree you need a second opinion.

Even Honda Master Techs don't always know everything!

A bad ECU is not a common problem with this car.

Is the shop you took it to a Honda Dealership? If not, I would suggest that you take the car out of the independent shop and have the Honda dealership take a look at it.

I don't think 5w20 will make any difference from 0w20. You can move up the grades slowly, but I don't think you will notice any difference until you start using a 10w30 or thicker. As for the piston...

If it were my vehicle, with that many miles I would switch from 0w20 to something thicker like 10w30 to start. Obviously thicker oil is not going to get past the...
