What can you do if your check engine light is on but the Honda service department will not tell you what the code means so you can repair it?

Don't know what the code is, but I take all my CEL's to AutoZone or PepBoys where they will scan it for free and tell you what the actual code is referring to. Don't let the dealer take you for a ride. You may also want to try an independent mechanic who might only charge you a little bit for the information as opposed to the dealer who will run all sorts of BS diagnostic tests. You can check the code yourself without going anywhere. However, this will do you no good if you don't know what the code stands for. If you want to check the code and work on the car yourself, go to a book store or an auto parts store and purchase a CHILTON or HAYNES maintenance manual for your car. It will show you how to check the codes yourself and it will tell you what the codes mean. The main thing to know is that these codes won't tell you what exactly is wrong with your car. They will only tell you which system has a problem (exhaust, fuel, etc). By bringing the car to a Honda dealership to have the work done, they will know the most likely cause of the problem. In the end, this may save you money because you won't be buying unnecessary parts. The number one cause of a check engine light is the oxygen sensor.

You might want to bring your pressure washer to a dealer or repair service that specializes in your pressure washer model. For instance, if you have a Kohler, Briggs and Stratton or Honda Engine model, you can look for one of these dealers to perform the repair. Websites like Pressure-washers.industrial can help you locate a repair service.

I can tell you that the engine used in the CR-V is identical to the engine in the Honda Civic. I rarely do this, however, you may want to go on the internet and locate a Honda CRX or CR-V owners/fan group on the internet and post your question there OR simply call a Honda dealer's service department and ask.

A wiring diagram for a Honda Civic can be found in an after-market repair manual or in an official Honda EWD (Electrical Wiring Diagram) manual. The former can be found in most auto parts stores, and the latter is found at most Honda dealerships. Mechanical diagrams can also be found in after-market repair manuals.

Honda CBR 1000F is a motorcycle. If one wanted to repair the bike himself, a service and repair manual can be purchased from eBay and parts can be purchased online as well. The Honda dealership as well as small, independent mechanics and even franchise mechanics like Firestone can offer repair services and insight.

This repair requires skill and must be done correctly every 90,000 miles. Your Honda has an interference engine and if not done right you can cause serious engine damage. Take it to a professional, or purchase a repair manual.
