Why did your gas gauge stop working?

My gas guage stopped working on my 99 Passport. The problem was a part on the fuel sending unit, which is located in the gas tank. I had the fuel sending unit replaced, and the gas guage works again. - The electrical device that reads the fuel level is attached to the fuel pump. Apparently, a poor design has these things going out on a regular basis. Replacing the entire fuel pump is one way to get it working again. However, if you're cheap like me, you can remove the fuel pump and using a small screwdriver you can bend the "fork-like" prongs back onto the electrical connectors. It doesn't take much bending at all and more than likely you will not get a "perfect" reading, but at least you'll know how much is in your tank.

How do you replace a tail light bulb on a 1997 Honda Passport?

You will see some screws around the light cover and you will need a Phillips screwdriver to remove the screws. Take the cover off. Unscrew the old bulb (if you do this at a parts store like Auto Zone you can have them help you or take the bulb in to see which one you need to replace it or look in their manual in the store to see what bulb size you need). Screw in the new lightbulb. Put the screws back in. Seriously, you needed to know how to do this? Seriously.

Why does your 96 Honda Passport's ac blows cold air about half the time when the compressor is still running?

even though your compressor is still running does not mean anything... what you need to do is find out what refrigerant this vehicle calls for either R-12 or R-134a and have a a/c recharge service done and then you should have ICE cold a/c

How do you fix a drivers side electric window on a 97 Honda Passport?

The first step involves removing compleletely the door panel. Running the lower half and bottom are screws covered by approximelty one inch plates that pop off. Also screws in the arm reset and plate of the door handle must be removed. After removing all the screws holding the panel and poping the panel loose, it is puched upward and toward the rear of the vehicle. The entire window regulator is replaced as a unit. as simple as this piece looks it will cost over $100.00 dolars. The existing regulator is held in place by three hexhead bolts/screws attacged to the door and two hexhead attached to the lower porpotion of the window. After removing the screws, work the regulator out through the upper rear hole just below the door lock. The new regulator is replaced through the same hole. Be aware that it takes some time and patience to get the regulatlors in and out of the opening. IPY in Fresno

Bumpers

How do you install a front bumper on a 1997 Honda Passport?

The bumper is connected to the main body of vehicle with 4 bolts and square nuts (2 on each side left and right). These bolts are right in front of the front wheels. Unscrew these bolts and then remove the indicator wiring then the bumper will come with the side trims and the plastice fendor under it.

Then it is pretty obvious to do the rest.

How do you put on the lines on the power windows for a 95 Honda passport passenger window?

Yo uhave to buy the assembly from the dealer about 150.00 or so. It is a complete assembly the has all wire and pulleys already. I believe it is called a regulator. You pop of the interior doior cover, pull the plastic insulation sheet back, unboltthe old one, unplug it, pull it out and reverse for new one. failrly easy to do.

How do you change the driver's side brake light on a Honda Passport?

Changing a tail light on the Passport/Rodeo isn't really as difficult as I have seen some people make it out to be. I have a 2000 Passport, so I'm assuming that most other years for the Passport/Rodeo are similar. To change the bulb you have to remove the rear light fixture. You DO NOT have to remove anything on the interior of the vehicle. There are three screws to get the fixture off. The first two are on the side of the fixture in the small recesses that look like vents in the lights. They are diffuclt to see, but if you look closely, they're right there. Take them out. The third screw is located on the rear of the car, between the bumper and the fixture. It's hard to see without a flashlight. Loosen the screw until it turns very easily and gently pull back and up on the fixture. The assembly should slide right out. There is a pressure fit plastic piece that lines up the fixture. Be careful not to snap it like I did. After that, it's easy. Remove the snap fit electrical supply to the fixture and you're home free. Change the bulb and you're done. Getting that bottom third screw back in can be tricky. I found it easiest to put the screw back in and cover it with a thin piece of tape to hold it in place. Once the fixture is lined up you can secure the sides and screw the bottom in by puncturing the tape with the screwdriver. Took me an hour to figure it out the first time, took five minutes the next.

How do you repair a sticking valve on a 1996 Honda Passport with a V-6 engine?

try adding half a litre of tranny fluid to your engine oil sometimes that will help clean them out and free them up.

Its better to pull the head and clean the valve carefully. Also I'd check the spring. It could be weak or broken.

Your problem might not be with a sticking valve. I have a 1995 Isuzu Rodeo that suddenly began making a loud ticking noise I at first thought was due to sticking valve but turned out to be coming from a worn out timing belt tensioner. The Rodeo had 150k miles on it at the time and I was about ready to scrap it before I discovered the true cause. I know have over 190k on the vehicle.

How do you drain the oil out of your 1999 Honda Passport?

There are two plugs located underneath the transmission, the lower plug is to drain fluid and the upper plug (just about 1.5" higher than the other) is the fill in plug. To fill in fluid you need a pump or squeeze the fluid into the hole until the fluid overflows, replace the plug. I know this because I've watched the Honda mechanic perform this task. Good luck.

How do you change the EGR valve on a 1998 Honda Passport?

I don't have a '98 -- I have a 2000, but I am betting the fix is pretty similar. This was maybe the easiest repair I have ever done. I had a problem a few weeks back where the car wasn't starting up very well and it would almost stall at times, particularly when it was low on fuel. The check engine light came on and the diagnosis was a P1404 or P4404 (don't recall) that indicated a problem with the EGR valve. Before I ended up replacing the valve I took it off and cleaned it, replacing the gasket before reattaching. The valve is right up against the firewall slightly to the left of the engine block and has an electrical sensor plug on top. Disconnect the plug and remove the valve by removing the two bolts on either side. I think it's an 11mm. Anyway, once the bolts are out and the plug is disconnected, it should come right off. If it's black and caked with carbon, chances are the EGR is your problem. I've been told it's common with Passports and Rodeos. You can clean it with some brake dust remover and an air compressor or just replace it. If you push down on the valve and it doesn't pop right back up or sticks after you've cleaned it, just replace it - the valve is bad. I put mine back on after cleaning it and it failed again four days later. Probably not a bad idea to replace the gasket either way.

A new one is probably around $120 - $150, which is really not too bad. This was seriously the easiest repair I have ever made on any vehicle I have ever owned. It took literally five minutes.

How do you remove jammed Cd's 2000 Passport?

I have a 99 Passport. Twice I have had all 6 cd's jammed in the disk changer. The only option was to replace the unit. The first replacement was done by a Honda dealer. The disk changer was sent to a factory somewhere and I got my cd's back in about 6months. The second time, I replaced the unit on my own.

Thermostats

How do you replace a thermostat in a Honda accord LX 1996?

The thermostat is located at the BACK end (engine end) of the LOWER radiator hose. You'll have to do a little bit of digging to get there, but it's not bad and can be done with normal tools. If you're careful, you can do it in an hour. Previous Answer:You'll find the thermostat behind the valve cover almost all the way to the left. It will be just underneath the distributor. You will need to disconnect the main upper radiator hose, two electrical plugs and three mounting bolts. This will remove the cover. The thermostat is approx 2" wide and circular. When installing the new one, be sure to have a proper gasket (my new one didn't come with one) and set the temp pin at the top when re-installing. (The little loose piece of metal) You may have to move a few things around to get to the case. The big hose to my air filter was a real pain, but I was able to disconnect it from the filter house and just push it out of the way. There may also be some wiring you'll need to shift around for access. All you'll need is a standard ratchet with a 10mm head and a 3" extender, and a pair of plyers to pinch the hose lock. When you're done, put everything back where it was. Careful not to overtighten the bolts, they WILL snap. If possible, the ideal solution would be to use a torque wrench and use the specifications found in the repair manual. But if you're careful about overtightening, you should be okay.

Where is the oil drain plug located on a 1996 Honda Passport?

Don't do what I did and drain the transmission fluid by mistake! (looks like the oil pan for an American car).

It should be on the driver's side of the engine block. you have to look for it about in the middle of the block. it's a little hidden by the framework.

Why did your 1998 Honda Passport gas gauge stop working?

It is probably your fuel sending unit gone bad. Have seen multiple posts on this problem.

What is the power drive button used for and how do you fix the the fule gauge?

the power utton changes the shift points of the transmission so that when the power light is on it takes alot less acceleration to downshift the vehicle, resulting in higher rpms which means more power. instead of accelerating and the vehicle staying in the same gear through more accelerator depressment.

Transmission Fluid
Honda Passport

Where do you add the transmission fluid on a 99 Honda Passport?

There are two bolts on the bottom of the tranmission fluid pan. The lower of the two is the drain, and the higher of the two is the filler. YES, the filler is on the bottom of the pan. Warm the ATF by driving for 15 minutes or so, remove the filler plug and pump fluid up into the pan until it overflows out of the filler hole. Then cycle the tranny through the gears and couple times and refill. Personally, i'd check it again a couple days later after some driving.

The '99 Honda Passport automatic transmission does not have a transmission dip stick. if it is a automatic pull trans. dip stick and add their if not it should be on side of trans. Pull the transmissionn dip stick, and get a small funnel, and pour the fluid in.

What would cause a ticking sound on a 1996 Honda Passport?

i have that problem. i was told it was the lifters, but it's a pricey job. that's the best i can do for you. i believe you have to remove the head gasket in order to get to them. -NEW ANSWER- I HAVE THAT PROBLEM ALSO... MY MECHANIC TOLD ME THAT THAT SOUND IS THE LIFTERS, BUT WHAT IT ACTUALLY IS DOING IS THE LIFTERS ARE TAPPING AGAINST THE DIPSTICK IN THE CRANKSHAFT. HE TOLD ME NOT TO WORRY, IT IS AN ANNOYING SOUND BUT IT'S NOT DOING ANY INTERNAL DAMAGE TO THE MOTOR... IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO GET RID OF THAT SOUND, THEN YOU WOULD HAVE TO OPEN THE HEAD, AND HAVE THE LIFTERS REPLACED. The Crankshaft is nowhere near the lifers. It's the rockers slapping against the lifters that you hear. Not much of a problem if you don't mind the noise, just keep an eye on your oil pressure.

How do you change a brake light on a 2001 Honda Passport?

I just went through the ordeal with my 2000 Passport, maybe it will be the same with your's??? There are two almost hidden screws in the air-vents on the side of the lens. Once you remove those you can pull the top part of the housing from the car as it uses a friction pin. There is a screw in the bottom that looks like you'd have to remove the bumper to get, but I was able to pull the housing far enough away to replace the bulb without removing it. (not without some skinned knuckles and appropriate cursing!)

How do you check the automatic transmission fluid level on a Honda ex?

Most Hondas, check cold with the yellow dipstick (on level ground). Should be in between or at the top of the 2 marks. Should not be brown. Should be dark pink. Honda Passports are different. They have no dipstick. They are checked by temperature with a Honda only tester.
