Re: 300 K Honda Accord Wagon

I don't drive fast or hard but I will admit to being in some unusual fields and places. Like an access trail that jeeps would get stuck, if it rained. I'd say I replaced the ball joints at least four times. The one weakest link, or maybe because I drove off-road for some camping access and work rela...

Re: 300 K Honda Accord Wagon

350k on my 97 ex f22b1 Thanks everyone. The car now has Wisconsin blue plates (collectors) my insurance is for light use, I said under 2,000 miles a year. I'll keep running it on Sundays when the weather is nice. That's foam and bondo and house paint around the wheel wells. WI is tough on cars, mos...

Re: What your vin # means

Car I'm looking at buying 1HG CE1 894VA001890 97 EX wagon, 1890 means at least 1890 were made? I don't understand the CE1 thread that says only made in 1994, this is a 1997? But whats interesting is I did a check and went to a site that has decoding for Honda VINs. (isn't the internet wonderful?) De...

Re: Automatic Transmissions / Sports Transmission?

Yes my girlfriend had a Prelude, it was fun. She buys some nice cars, and I drive a Honda Wagon? ;) Well we both like the wagon, pretty attached to it after all these years, many long trips. https://s5.postimg.org/bdap5b4fb/prelude-6.jpg Here's the visual on the Triptronic Honda gate.

Re: Automatic Transmissions / Sports Transmission?

That ones not mine, it was on eBay. I think it was creative writing. "sports transmission" :-? I'm trying to find here or anywhere, how many 1997 EX wagons were made with a manual transmission ? Someone else on the forum said there may have been a thread about the production numbers? Only ...

Re: Automatic Transmissions / Sports Transmission?

Yeah typical eBay "rare" and making it up as they go along. I've seen stuff that makes you shiver about coins and collectibles that's imaginary creative writing. :rolleyes: Anyone know how many 1997 EX wagons were made with the manual, or how to find a real number? I had someone say that h...

Re: Automatic Transmissions / Sports Transmission?

Thanks. I don't know if they made up the sports transmission on a 1991 EX or it's the standard transmission with some inventive eBay name on it. I've only had stick Hondas for over 20 years. Girlfriend had a Prelude but that had a + and minus, not numbers. Upshift and downshift. Car sold, with minor...

Automatic Transmissions / Sports Transmission?

Was there some option or are they all the same? There's one advertised locally with a sport transmission and since I've only had sticks, I haven't a clue. Different for sale, but it shows the 1,2,D3,D4 and there's a lock on it? Or are they all like this? https://s5.postimg.org/xrrepakrr/sport_shift_...

Re: Towing with an automatic? Even light loads?

I have one and tow a little. Wood and things. Had a Little Guy trailer. Stick but no problems. Muffler had to be adapted and eventually I went to a pretty much straight pipe and a cherry bomb from Fleet Farm. NICE! Towing capacity is not based on tranny or motor in our case but (according to an expe...

Re: Is a Honda Accord Crosstour a Wagon?

Thanks Ben I suspect that the sleek design would be a wall. I have driven wagons almost exclusively. I had a Mini Cooper S in 1968 and that had good glass, a Fiat 124 wagon, a Mazda RX3 wagon, VW Thing (but I could fit the drum set into it?), A Rambler wagon (2) (not a stick the rest are), mini vans...

Is a Honda Accord Crosstour a Wagon?

Same fate as wagons, except made 2010 - 2015, 5-door station wagon/fastback I think they made a 4cyl version and later V6. I'm learning. Then there's the front wheel drive and all wheel drive. Hmmmmm? 270HP! Getting to the point where I can't find a good used wagon with manual transmission. Crosstou...

Re: Need to buy an EX 5 speed wagon! no low balling!

If Ashtone has found his, I want one, any year, must be a manual transmission EX, clean but doesn't need to be perfect. I'm in Wisconsin I can repair some minor rust.

My 1991 is a rust bucket, over 300K and I'd like one more to love. Best car I ever owned.

Cruise Control Intermitent

Before I start throwing parts at this, I see the control unit is listed as behind the steering column, under the dash. Do I need to take the dash off to get to this part? Also I'm rural, mechanics read shop manulas, add in, it's a 1991, so they probably forgot or never saw one of these. The vacuum s...

Re: Can't Rev past 3000 RPM - CEL No Code? High speed miss 1

Glad to hear it's running right. The engines (and manual transmissions) are amazing. I want another one. I keep saying next year, a Texas car, but I'm looking and less are for sale. Roof rack is even harder to find. But a 1997 manual transmission, EX would be the real deal. Mine is a Wisconsin car ...
