Guys i have plan to add some more things that i notice related to this problem, when increasing & decreasing the A/C level from the controller the rpm is increasing & decreasing according to it, i know guys this is very strange thing, but its true. :) pls recommend me a place.

Hi,

I had a AC problem. I went to staford where they did the cleaning up but i had to replace the sensors. So what i did was i put a external switch and made the AC on/off in a seperate switch. This was done in a superb place in Kelaniya Anyhow Honda is known for stable RPM with AC or without AC. usualy mine stays around 800 with AC. I do not know if thats ok...

Hola

Did you show to the ppl at Staford again?

I remember this same thing happened to another EG8- which Zakie was able to fix.. what RPM to you idle with AC? Is there the sound of a 'miss' when you turn it on.. Hola's idea also has some logic to it..

Pila,

Do you have an idea on whats the standards should be in terms of RPM when its on N and D?

Usualy if I put to N it goes to 1000 but D is 800

first of all this is not a honda bashing and i know this is o/t but i don't wana open up a new tread for this.

is it really worth it to take an 'old' vehicle to agent to fix problems. aren’t they suppose to be a rip off??? in other treads i've seen people saying that they took their hondas (eg8, ek3, city) to stafford for engine problems. is it really worth it??? specially for cars like that. guess its alright if the car has been maintained at the agent form day one.

i've taken my vehicles to agents few times that is to diagnose the problem using their computer thing apart from that i really don’t see the point unless its a real expensive vehicle(u know what i mean). just my 2 cents

hmm it should be around 700 but thats on manuals.. those numbers seem ok- if you have fitted ana after market rpm clock.. the numbers can sometimes be accurate.. check the underside of your bonnet, there should be a JDM sticker giving the correct figure.

Right thanks,

Thusha, another advice is that you clean off the front AC and radiator fins with air atleast twice a month. This was adviced by staford to me once, there is actulay lot of dust and whn you clean it you feel a great change

Always trust the agents for parts.. (unless you own a mazda) labour can be found cheaper- but for critical jobs the agents are the best. specially for suspension issues..

free nam moko

Nothing wrong with it being free man. But if everyone were to wait for free clinics to come along they'd be putting their own lives at risk by doing no maintenance on their cars

Mechanics at free clinics have no obligation.. and just do qick fix job for the sake of the sponsors oh they have to talk big as well.. the breed that goes for 'em.. well refer above..

In Sri Lankan context as always..
