Thanks.
I however noticed something yesterday morning and this morning that driving from sangotedo was problematic (switching gears at every stop) but the problem seems to go away from around jakande. I drove to lekki and back to chevron yesterday morning without any drop. Today, I'm sure it was from around Chisco that I drove all the way to oyingbo wothout any drop.
This looks like its transmission temperature sensitive. What do you think sir?

To things.
1) scan car again using a different scanner. If it's temperature related it should throw codes
2) drain and refill fluid

Good evening guys, I recently got my vehicle scanned and I got these codes
P3400
P0420
P0430

Vehicle is Honda Accord V6 2008

P3400 is peculiar to 2008 - 2012 Accord V6 engines, applicable to Pilots & MDX using similar J35 engines, referred to as top cylinder sensor.

The other two are for your catalysts, if blown, will cause increased fuel consumption, blocked, will sound the death knell for your engine.

I'm truly grateful for your feedback, I do not take it for granted.
I got a rewire to scan, though I was too distracted when he told me his result which he said pointed to the clutch pressure solenoids. On removal, the 4 nut was bad and the 6 nut had gum in its passage. Getting them swapped at the moment.
Will test drive afterwards and revert. If positive, I will proceed to do drain and refill.

Update.

The swapping of the clutch pressure solenoids work for maybe a mile or 2. It started dropping after a couple more miles. Meaning it's an internal damage. Gear had been dropped for a tear-down and inspection to help us know what's wrong.

Fingers are crossed.

Honda Continuous Variable Transmission (CVT) fluid.
Re: Maintenance Tips For Honda Cars by radautoworks: 8:05am On Jan 29, 2020
xcitedjay:


Your car shorting oil and smoking means the oil is sipping out from your rings and/or seals, so using a lighter oil now would only worsen the already bad situation. And 5w30 oil are much more expensive than the conventional motor oil.

See https://www.firestonecompleteautocare.com/maintain/oil/types/

This statement is incorrect. There is 5w30 conventional oil

Ok then..

Hope it wouldn't have adverse effect on the transmission?

The shifting at 60km/h is still not smooth after the oil change.

Any idea where I cam get the legit oil??

Hi,

Any idea where I can get Honda Type 1 coolant. Search all over Gudu but they are out of stock. What other brand can I use to top off the coolant? I have only used Honda OEM coolant. Thank you

Good morning madam,

Please I recently got an Honda City 2007, it's my first car, I dont know the oil that has been used before but I noticed the oil has dropped below the guage point. And the car doesn't smoke.

The recommended oil i saw online is 5W40 and another place 5W30. Which do you advise is right and can I start using it immediately.

They did not come as foreign used vehicles, and 99per of owners used 20w50. Continue to use 20w50

Pls genius in the house help me o cuz this my Honda accord V6 is driving me crazy. Last year December i notice my car was doing overheating a particular night i was coming from the office, i parked wait for the engine to cool down. Then i added water again, started the car and continue driving back home, all this while i didnt know one of the fan was not working. Then all of a sudden, the heat guage went up within 5minutes again when i continued the movement back home, that was when i checked and i discovered that two of the fan was not working, i was able to get a technician around the area i was and he connected the fan directly and it started blowing again. That was when overheating wahala started o, after that day drama, i noticed the each time i turn on the AC, the car begins to heat up, but once i put off the AC, it cools off. Now mechanic told me gasket, we changed the gasket 2 weeks ago, on Monday while using the AC, i discovered the same overheating issue, when i turn off the AC, the heater gauge cools, no overheating. I decided to take the car to another mechanic, who told me i should flush or change radiator which i preferred changing the the radiator completely. Yesterday, the radiator was changed. Still the problem persists yesterday night while yes riding the car, he said we should buy coolant which we did. We put the coolant in the radiator yesterday night. By this morning i decided to drive the car our to test it with the AC, within 20minutes, the overheating started again, i called mechanic, he said maybe the other mechanic that change the gasket bought fake gasket and maybe the gasket is flat that i will need to change the gasket. Gurus in the house help, pls kindly suggest solutions to me

I came across this oil from a very reputable wholesale lubricant seller. My 09 accord previous owner was using mobile 20w-50, can I use this one before finally switching and settling down to the original mobile1 synthetic 5w-20 recommended?

I was going to ask you to try the suction experiment to know if the fan was blowing correctly.
