Hello Gazzuzz thank you for being ever helpful. Please I need your help...
In April I bought a 2010 Honda accord in kaduna which I gave an old acquaintance to take care of ie service, get me a lagos plate number and stuff etc. However I was told my acquaintance just had an accident with it. He suffered a broken arm but doing OK. The car on the other hand is damaged. I am being told that it can be repaired because the engine is still fine. I don't know anything about cars, I feel it's scary to do so. Your advise is very much needed —I am attaching some pictures below. Thank you sir.

Just ask, and I'll give you my candid unbiased advice here on autos.


Good day boss.
I have this 2006 Honda accord v6 (discussion continues). It has a couple of problems and I need help with it.

1. Car seems to loose power. It drives like a weak old 4cyl engine despite being a fairly new v6. Some times the throttle will need to be pressed all the way down before the gearbox kicks down. No, the gearbox doesn't slip, it changes smoothly. No check engine light. Air filter has been cleaned.

2. When started in the morning, it sounds like it had a leak in the exhaust, but sound normalises as the car warms up. You barely notice the bad sound when fully hot (not completely gone). Car had a bad exhaust gasket, which was fixed. All attempt to find another leak proved abortive. One of the three catalysts is missing in the pot, though pot remains intact (don't ask me how), but the remaining 2 are in very good shape. I don't think the missing catalytic converter is the cause cos catalytic converter is only responsible for emissions, but I might be wrong.

3. The car fails to crank sometimes when the ignition is turned. I have to return key to 0 and then try again. Sometimes it cranks on the 2nd or 3rd attempt. I was told it was the ignition switch on the steering column because it makes some tiny sparking sound if the key is turned slowly to start. I've replaced the ignition switch, sparking sound is gone, but sometimes it still doesn't start.

Any advice will be highly appreciated. Tnx

If you don't have any misfire codes.

Check fuel pressure .

If fuel pressure is fine, take down the exhaust system right from the intake manifold catalysts and inspect for restriction.

About the failure to start, remote diagnosis might not work.

OK boss.
I don't have any misfire codes.
I don't have the equipment to check for fuel pressure, so I will swap out the fuel pump for a new one.
As mentioned, the exhaust system was worked on. Some Lagos boys decided to replace the bank 1 cat with iron wire, which was pushed down by the engine to block the 3rd cat. This resulted in a very loud leak as the air had to find a way out. All this was fixed and a new cat installed in bank 1. Bank 2 still has an empty pot (no cat). But the whole thing still sounds like there's a leak on cold start. Visible steam comes out of the tailpipe on cold mornings. So I'm pretty sure there's no restrictions.

Hello GAZZUZZ, my 05 highlander had a leaking hose for power steering, I asked my mech to change the hone and now my steering is so hard to turn. I can't even drive it. If I accelerate, the steering becomes very soft. My mech says the steering pump or something has lost pressure and I need to cough out 20k to change it. What do you think?
