problem #1

May 312017

Insight LX 1.3L V4

  • CVT transmission
  • 51,000 miles

Car, had a crazy issue with engine stalling, and when restarted would have almost no power, moving along at speed of approx 3 miles per hour. Also all the warning messages would come on, from check IMA, to oil, to check emission system and more. Drove vehicle to dealer, blamed problem on failing regular battery, and 2 bad spark plugs, ruined from excessive oil, (I always add extra oil, because engine uses 1 quart every 700 miles approx.) Problem not covered by HondaCare warranty, paid 550 bucks, car was running fine once I got it back.

But problem happened 2 more times since, one time I disconnected battery and car started running fine, the other time just happened and vehicle is at the dealership.
